Arnold's Prop. 187 Evolution


Turns out Arianna Huffington (who, by the way, was gutted and filleted by Susan Estrich today), is not the only gubernatorial candidate to have a change of heart about California's still-controversial 1994 ballot initiative. The L.A. Weekly's Bill Bradley reports:

Last year, while campaigning for Proposition 49, his after-school programs initiative, Schwarzenegger won a standing ovation from the Commonwealth Club at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, when he responded to a question from the audience about his current thinking on Prop. 187: "I would never stand in the way of any child going to school, whether he or she is here legally or illegally, it does not matter."
