Dream Act

Dear Editor:Recently, Gov. Jerry Brown, also known at one point in his career as "Gov. Moon Beam," signed the California Dream Act, which will provide state financial aid for illegal immigrant students. Surely, at some point in his long political career, Brown must have taken an oath of office in which he swore to uphold the laws of this country and of the state of California. Therefore, he should have been, for many years, actively deporting illegal immigrants instead of pandering to them to win votes for whatever his next run for public office might be. The only good thing about this bill is that now they will surely need to add at least two new lanes on the northbound 5 Freeway down at the border, and possibly the whole length of the state, to handle the huge influx of incoming traffic to take advantage of this bill. That should be one of those shovel-ready jobs we read so much about; and if they really hurry, it can be completed by 2013 when this so-called Dream Act is supposed to kick in. Gov. Brown failed to mention where the money will come from to finance this new giveaway program. Probably from the same place the money for the new addition to the highway comes from. -- Jim Lucas, Downey
