Since I send my kids to a parochial school those bastard sumbitches can take my kids share of the education dollar and shove it up their asses.

Please donít invoke Christianity. We have no moral obligation whatsoever to support the children of illegal aliens. We also now have 26 million unemployed U.S. citizens, while Mexico has an unemployment rate less than 5 percent. Most had jobs. They simply come here for an increase, and to avail themselves of our government handouts. You may not mind being used, but Iím sick of it.

Exactly how it is "punishing" kids who have inherited their illegal parents' sense of entitlement to send them packing back to the country of their birth?

Feel free to write the check and sponsor them and be
responsible and accountable for their actions

Why is it that all of the 'Kids' who were brought here illegally have not taken the steps toward citizenship for the free ride they have already had

You're right. we shouldn't punish the kids for what their parents did. But we shouldn't reward them either. Making the parents responsible for the effect (on their children) of their actions can't be considered punishing the children.

We shouldn't be educating these kids, period. Even if their parents or their country of origin pay for their education here that doesn't solve the problem of the overcrowded conditions in our classrooms by accomodating them and the language barriers that require extra attention to these English learners that slow our own kids down.

What's rarely mentioned is the cost to legal residents. At our child's school last year, there weren't enough text books to take home to do homework. The classroom was so crowded that students weren't allowed to get up and move around. Our child was administered a benchmark test in the middle of some stranger's noisy classroom because there weren't any free rooms. The middle school buses this year have 3 kids per seat (and they don't fit) when only 2 are officially allowed. One advanced and publicly funded school in our district sets aside 75% of enrollment for "poorer" neighborhoods. Our child was placed in a Spanish-speaking class in second grade without any parental notification. How is any of this good for our children?

Rewarding the children of illegal aliens at the expense of the citizen taxpayer is rewarding the parents for their criminal behavior of being here illegally. It is very cut and dry.

Just recently, the Albuquerque Journal ran a piece on their front page, in which they showed two illegal school-age kids who were recently brought to New Mexico from Arizona by their mother because she was afraid of SB-1070 in Arizona. The accompanying article mentioned that in the 2008-09 school year, $42 million of the school district's $626 million budget was spent educating KNOWN illegals. I say "known" illegals because no one is allowed to ask students whether or not they are legal. So, the price tag for educating illegals in Albuquerque is likely far greater than $42 million per year.

Meanwhile, the state legislature (similar to most states) is trying to figure out how to close the budget gaps, state jobs are remaining vacant, and state workers are facing furloughs.
