States with the fewest immigrants will lose House seats if the 1990 census counts illegal aliens as residents, the head of an immigration study group told census supervisors in Washington. Roger Conner, director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, said that Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina and other states may lose seats in the 1990 reapportionment, leaving U.S. citizens under-represented.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday granted illegal immigrants access to state financial aid at public universities and community colleges, putting California once again in the center of the nation's immigration debate. But he vetoed a measure that would have allowed state universities to consider applicants' race, gender and income to ensure diversity in their student populations. Deciding the fate of 50 education-related bills, the governor also rejected an effort to make it more difficult to establish charter schools.
