The Los Angeles Times offers an editorial called "Make the Dream reality/Legislation to help undocumented California college students benefits everyone" (link) about Gil Cedillo's "California DREAM Act". In addition to admitting that what they write might "strike some as soft-hearted sophistry", it contains this lie:
Cedillo's bill doesn't jeopardize college for anyone -- it simply expands the universe of students we are willing to help.
Any dollar spent on educating illegal aliens is money that could be spent on educating U.S. citizens. By giving college discounts to illegal aliens, we're taking those discounts away from U.S. citizens and, thus, some U.S. citizens will not be able to go to college. There really is no way around that unless, as the Los Angeles Times seems to think, money grows on trees.
