Well, this is very noteworthy. Today, the Colorado state legislature defeated an illegal alien in-state tuition discount bill. Five Democrats crossed over and joined pro-enforcement Republicans to kill the DREAM Act legislation. Open borders lobbyists and local columnists poured on the victim-card propaganda, but taxpayers weren’t buying it. And Democrats are starting to listen.

Let’s hope this is a sign of things to come:

Democratic Sens. Morgan Carroll of Aurora, Jim Isgar of Hesperus, Moe Keller of Wheat Ridge, Linda Newell of Littleton and Lois Tochtrop of Thornton voted against the bill.

Carroll, after the debate, referred reporters to a statement on her website that said she could not support the bill “in a climate where the state is cutting or eliminating over $1 billion of benefits to the people and is facing a $300 million cut to higher education, which virtually ends higher education as we know it in the state of Colorado.”

Isgar and Tochtrop made similar comments about cuts to colleges, while Keller declined comment on her vote.

Newell, who was elected in November by a razor-thin margin, simply said “I listened to my constituents” when asked about her vote.

Hope. Change.
