U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris blamed President Donald Trump's "anti-immigrant agenda" for a drop in them applying for college financial aid offered through the California Dream Act. 

Ben Shapiro speaking"For the second year in a row," she tweeted, "fewer undocumented youth applied for financial aid in California because they are distrustful of our government."

Her comments lit a proverbial fire under columnist Ben Shapiro, who told Fox News that Americans who are legal, tax-paying citizens should be angry over subsidizing people in the country illegally.

"If you are interested at all in having a sovereign country that controls its borders," he said. "It's pure insanity but it shows once again that for Democrats there's an actual look to make illegal immigration more prominent."

Kamala Harris (U.S. senator, D-Calif)A recent study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform revealed that California spends $23 billion per year on illegal aliens, twice as much as any other state.

Shapiro, a California resident, told Fox News that the state has over a trillion dollars in debt. 

Yet the concerns of fewer applications didn't last long: a public service announcement by rapper DJ Khaled helped get the word out, and the applications topped last year's total, The Los Angeles Times reported.
