Schwarzenegger Says California Budget Not Affected By Illegal Aliens

Bookmark and Share

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger must have been living under a box for the past 4 years as hospitals closed around him and schools overflowed with more and more children of illegal aliens and the sprawl and congestion in cities throughout the state exploded. He actually had the nerve to tell the people of California that illegal aliens have no impact on the budget crisis and that people should not point fingers.

I have no other comment at this complete idiocy other than pointing out a couple of numbers below.

Sacramento Bee

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called it a "big mistake" Wednesday to blame illegal immigrants for the state's looming $8 billion budget gap, just as Republican lawmakers have proposed a rollback of benefits for illegal immigrants to save money.

... Diane Blakeslee, mother of GOP Assemblyman Sam Blakeslee, asked Schwarzenegger how the state should handle financial burdens created by illegal immigrants.

"There is, you know, always a time like this where you start pointing the finger at various different elements of what creates the budget mess, and, you know, some may point the finger at illegal immigrants," Schwarzenegger said. "I can guarantee you, I have been now four years in office in Sacramento, I don't think that illegal immigration has created the mess that we are in."


Assembly Republicans on Tuesday said illegal immigrants cost the state $9 billion annually, citing a Federation for American Immigration Reform study released in 2004. The group estimated that California spends an estimated $7.7 billion alone on education for undocumented students.


Diane Blakeslee, 75, said in a telephone interview that she asked about illegal immigration because "it's like the 800-pound gorilla in the room and nobody wants to talk about it."

"This doesn't really have to do with discrimination or anything," said Blakeslee, a certified financial planner. "It's a matter of respect for the law. ... We're sacrificing our own kids to take care of people who don't believe in following the law."

OK, I lied... one other comment... "undocumented students"... really?

Ahnold should just cross the aisle and hang with the Kennedy's. He's a RINO! I hope Californian's have a TRUE conservative running against him for his reelection. He's such a hypocrite. He takes a PRIVATE JET DAILY from LA to Sacramento. I heard the jet fuel for ONE day is like a small car's pollution for an entire YEAR! Ahnold is like all the liberals: do as I say, not as I do...hypocrite!
