California Plans Aid to Illegal Immigrant Minors

ABC News reports:
California lawmakers will approve legislation supported by Gov. Jerry Brown to spend $3 million in state money to provide legal help for unaccompanied children from Central America, Democratic leaders announced Thursday.

Making the money available to help children is "the decent thing to do and it's consistent with the progressive spirit of California," Brown said in a statement.

He announced the plan along with Attorney General Kamala Harris, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins and the Latino legislative caucus, all Democrats.

Because Democrats control both houses of the state Legislature, they will not need Republican support to pass the legislation. Spokespeople for the Assembly and Senate Republican caucuses did not immediately offer a response to the plan.
State law makers that are quite open to breaking federal immigration law. Anyone, you will notice the AP story calls the illegals just "immigrants".
