What makes it legal for illegals to use the school system?

Shouldn't it be only for legal aliens and of course citizens...!

I never understood why illegals can have access to the school system and than have no right of a job when they used the benefits...so stop letting them into the schools, etc...that will make them leave faster.

Illegals are here because the government wants them here, in order to turn the U.S. into a balkanized patchwork quilt of squabblers. The government is doing everything they can to encourage illegals to come here and displace people not part of the elite classes.

They will not leave faster if they were to be denied from attending public school, of that I am certain - in case you are unfamiliar with it, Prop 187 addressed this exact issue (among the other negative financial impacting aspects of the illegal invasion) in the state of CA, which is ground zero for the hordes who sneak in from SOB. As it is, more than half of the hispanics in CA don't even graduate from HS. Prop 187 was referred to as the "last gasp of white America" by Art Torres. (The Prop to stop illegals from receiving public services including public schooling was passed by the voters of CA but later declared unconstitutional by the federal court.) Who is this Art Torres, you might ask? A former CA state senator, that's who.

This next bit of info might raise your blood pressure - there are actually areas along the border where busloads of kids are brought into the US to attend our public schools each morning.

That would be a Supreme Court decision.

Plyler v. Doe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982), was a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States struck down a state statute denying funding for education to children who were illegal immigrants and simultaneously struck down a municipal school district's attempt to charge illegal immigrants an annual $1,000 tuition fee for each undocumented student to compensate for the lost state funding[1].

Revisions to education laws in Texas in 1975 withheld state funds for educating children who had not been legally admitted to the United States and authorized local school districts to deny enrollment to such students. A 5-to-4 majority of the Supreme Court found that this policy was in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment, as illegal immigrant children are people "in any ordinary sense of the term", and therefore had protection from discrimination unless a substantial state interest could be shown to justify it.
The court majority found that the Texas law was "directed against children, and impose[d] its discriminatory burden on the basis of a legal characteristic over which children can have little control" — namely, the fact of their having been brought illegally into the United States by their parents.


Case opinions
Majority:
Brennan (appt. by Eisenhower)
Marshall (Johnson)
Blackmun (Nixon)
Powell (Nixon)
Stevens (Ford)

Dissent:
Burger (Nixon)
White (Kennedy)
Rehnquist (Reagan)
O'Connor (Reagan)

I also wonder how illegals can register their foreign born illegal alien children in our public schools when they have to present documentation when they register their child that proves they're here legally.

In light of many U.S. states current affairs with regard to being on the brink of fiscal insolvency... does that qualify as a substantial state interest which would justify refusing them enrollment in any state/city funded school system? It costs more money to educate children who's first language isn't English.

The sense of entitlement exhibited by invaders on America's soil

...and the brazen contempt by far too many of this Country's "leaders"; for taxpayers, the will of the people, the immigration laws, and their oaths to defend this Nation's Borders

...is evidence of a Cancer destroying this Nation


This issue (soft-on-illegal immigration)---more than any other; exposes the America-hating apologists...intent on undermining, betraying, and transforming this Country, from a Melting Pot

...to a Chamber Pot.


These Quislings are unworthy to be called fellow citizens---much less hold reins of power.

A pox on them....

Which begs the question of why aren't they stopped and turned back at the border? If they're not US citizens they don't have a LEGAL right to cross the border let alone on a daily basis.

They are US citizens or legal residents -and do have a right to cross the border. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...n/4758501.html
