Good news and bad news

The good news is that the Massachusetts House stripped tuition breaks for illegal aliens from the state budget. The bad news is that:
Ali Noorani, executive director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, called the vote "a step in the process," but said he was confident that the tuition breaks had the support of a majority in the House.

"In our view, the most important thing that can happen is that 400 immigrant students go to college in September of this year. That is our goal. To reach that goal, the budget is just one of many vehicles to do that," he said.
Ali really meant 400 illegal alien students, but apparently he's easily confused. You also have to wonder why, if he wants to raise money to support citizens of foreign lands, he doesn't just call Sally Struthers?
