- Martinez v. Regents of University of California
On March 18, 2011, WLF filed a brief in the U.S. Supreme Court, urging it to review (and ultimately overturn) a California Supreme Court decision that upheld a California statute that, WLF charges, violates the civil rights of U.S. citizens who live outside the State. The statute grants illegal aliens the right to attend California universities at in-state rates but denies that same right to U.S. citizens who live outside of California.
