Red DotWhat Really Happened
Sacramento -- August 11, 2003 -- Despite claims by California Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante to the contrary, California Proposition 187, the initiative to cut off taxpayer funds for illegal aliens and passed by 59% of voters, was not killed by the courts, it was killed by Governor Gray Davis. He joined with Mexican President Zedillo to make sure it didn't make it to the U.S. Supreme Court.
