As we talked about previously, the Dream Act was passed here in California not too long ago. Since then, angry citizens have been putting together a petition to put the overturning of the law on the ballot in the upcoming 2012 elections. There are many supporters of this law being overturned: the petition only recently came out but there are almost 10,000 volunteers enthusiastic about it already. The petition has until January 6 to get 700,000 signatures so that it can go onto the ballot. This shouldn’t however be too much of a problem since there many angry parents and students who think that it is unfair for undocumented students to qualify for financial aid, while they, for whatever reason, do not.
The petition would put the law on the ballot and also halt its implementation until we vote on it in the elections.
