For that reason my answer was,

1. I have refused to eat at or order food from restaurants that I know hire Illegals.

2. I will discourage anyone from sending there children to schools that I know have Illegals.

3. I am vehemently against anybody that I know hires an Illegal as a Maid, Nanny, or housekeeper.

And,

One thing that we should remember is all the Illegals that cross into this country have not been screened medically. Therefore, the potential for catching something dreadfully dangerous health wise remains in the air.

Maybe A little sarcasm on my part. LOL.. We have gone to great lengths to make sure the foods are organic and grown by our local farmers we trust. Same Thing for meats, fish and poultry. Everybody including the Immigrants with work permits or green cards that work here have also been screened medically.

But let's get real, schools don't ask for their citizenship-- just their residence. One cannot go to the school and be like "Do any illegal immigrants go to this school?". Chances are they will say they don't know or just no.

I taught. You are NOT ALLOWED to ask citizenship. The kid is supposed to show up with a birth cert. to register, but parents show with baptismals, or Medicaid cards or a multitude of other things, like former school records, claiming that they lost the birth certificate.... and you have to take the kids.

This has not only to do w/Mexicans, it has to do with ALL ILLEGALS. (Surprise, they are not only from Mexico). If they showe up with some "Aid" agency people ( like claiming they are refugees), you never find out.

BTW: Lots of you may not know this: Since Puerto Ricans are US Citizens, lots of illegals claim they are Puerto Rican.

There are MANY other locations you can find the fact PuertoRicans are US Citizens.

And many of those documents could be very well faked!

I think it may be a good idea for the school systems in the U.S. to screen all applicants registration documents more thoroughly. Just imagine what this will do to relieve the U.S. tax payers burden…
