State to Disabled Immigrants: Get a Job



Man, this sucks. According to the Contra Costa Times, Governor Schwarzenegger has proposed eliminating a program that provides monthly cash grants to more than ten thousand disabled or aged immigrants around the state. The move would save California around $111 million, but the stipend, which amounts to a few hundred dollars a month, is often all that stands between disabled immigrants and the street. Isn't there a UC police chief somewhere whose pay we can dock instead?
