From the OC Register:
[Loretta] Sanchez declined to comment on her co-sponsorship of the bill, which proposes allowing students who are in the country illegally the chance to apply for legal permanent residency, protect them from deportation and make them eligible for student loans and federal work-study programs. "It's been a long fight," said Yenni Diaz, spokeswoman for the Orange County DREAM team. Diaz, a political science student at University of California, Irvine, made the co-sponsorship announcement to a crowd at a Los Amigos meeting Wednesday morning where she was met with applause. "It's a sad day when we have to convince one of our own to become a co-sponsor of our bill," said Amin David, the Los Amigos leader. "This should have been 9 years ago," Diaz quipped back.
