Is it counted as 'resident' or 'non-resident' aid at UC? 'What is the aggregate?' questions persist for each category... Again and again.

And what is UC's clear mission statement relative to each stakeholder group?
( E.g. why doesn't UC provide the same services to Title IX complainant, respondants when their cases are upheld? How are decisions made about which UC litigants population to support with such services? Etc)

See:

"Amid Trump's border showdown, UC immigration lawyer comforts and fights"

Includes:
..."She’s one of 10 attorneys employed by the University of California’s Immigrant Legal Services Center, and as the Trump administration seeks to further curb immigration, her office in a quiet corner of a UC Riverside administration building has become one of many fronts in the ongoing national debate over who should have access to the American dream.

With federal courts weighing the fate of DACA and pitched partisan battles in Congress over border enforcement, California is spending $4 million over three years to fund free immigration legal assistance for UC students and their families. More than a quarter of the country’s 700,000 DACA recipients live in California.

In a redder state, taxpayers might object to a public university providing state-funded legal aid for clients that include unauthorized immigrants, not all of whom are students. But polls show more than eight Californians in 10 favor a path to legal status for undocumented residents.

UC President Janet Napolitano—a former Homeland Security Secretary—supports the program, and Gov. Gavin Newsom has proposed spending an additional $17 million next year to provide similar legal services on California State University and community college campuses. "...

As we consider ' return to aid' pools...
