It’s one of the largest universities in all of California with a student body numbering more than 35,000. Reportedly, quite a few of those students are illegal immigrants. So now California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) has set up a special resource center just for those “undocumented” students — the Dream Success Center.
Since 2001, the Golden State has allowed some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at public colleges and universities. Then in 2011, the California Dream Act was made law, permitting eligible “undocumented students” to get state financial aid, despite their non-citizen status.
Recently, Cal State Long Beach opened the Dream Success Center to offer career counseling and guidance on financial aid for the estimated 650 or so illegal immigrant students at the university.

On “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning, the chairman of the CSULB College Republicans club explained how, in his opinion, illegals at the university are getting services and benefits that U.S. military veterans and legal, disabled students don’t get.
Nestor Moto, Jr. explained that a lot of students are “fed up” with the fact that “the faculty and this administration wanted to allocate the resources and the funds to illegal immigrants…instead of our actual students that paid taxpayer dollars for this.”
