About time I say!!! They are not that innocent when they know enough to hide their faces because of the illegal act they commit every time they are in school in our country.

Sadly, Ozark-Baby, this disgusting "phenomenon" is occurring all along our Southern Border.

Not only costing the taxpayers BILLIONS but drastically compromising the education of the legal students.

Oh I know. I have family that lives in NM and they tell me and even sent me pics of the kids crossing the border to get on the school buses to go to our schools.

When I first heard of this, I could not believe it. I didn't believe it. I thought someone was pulling my leg. Just another thing that just blows my mind.

When I was in elementary school in New Jersey, we lied about my address (put my grandfather's address as mine) to get me into the better school district... I can understand the desire to have better education for your children, but at least in my case, my grandfather was paying school taxes!

I think we need to be mindful that adults are behind the actions of the children. All school districts should have strict registration and verification policies. The school district in my area encourages and support illegal immigration. I had to remove my children from the local school along with about 200 other families because our children were U.S. citizens, non-Latino, mono-lingual English speaking and in the minority. I could not imagine such a thing in America until it happened to me. I told school officials I wanted the same thing as the other parents wanted for their children: a good education in a safe environment; even though, we were clearly in the minority. This is still America and it is wrong to allow such a thing to happen. However, I don't blame the children...

It's great they're doing this now. I hope this guy watches his six though. Taking free benefits away from criminals can frequently get you killed.

Good for the school district, but read the article; the guy doing the photographing is an illegal-lover.
