What statistics are you talking about? Some statisctics from some "unknown" teacher from an "unknown" school in southern cali?

Btw, if i can't prove that it is a lie, you can't prove that it's the truth either.

blacknight is right the article which has been posted here at city data before is anecdotal. Since I have have attended schools where the conditions were very similar I have to give it my personal seal of approval. Take that with a grain of salt

Good. Now retract your claim of lies and propaganda. Unreferenced reports don't amount to lies.

Funny, our food prices continue to soar, in spite of cheap labor.

Very true. I don't think the price of tomatoes is especially cheap.

In fact -- tomatoes in this country were cheaper BEFORE we took in 30 million or more illegals. So was lettuce -- as unbelievable as it is -- I've seen lettuce selling for $1.50 a head and before those 30 million illegals arrived, it wasn't anything close to that much.

Consider both possibilities before damning the report.

So someone can randomly claim a statistic and it would be believed? Just as long as the post was anti-illegal then that means maybe there is some validity to their statistics right?

First the person who wrote it is making the broad assumption that the school is filled with illegals. They first claim they work in the ESL department of a school (yet don’t provide how many students attend the school and how many attend the ESL classes) then they provide one percentage (50%) related to obesity, not really a health issue affecting just illegal immigrants, and then the anonymous person makes more claims and estimations and increases another statistic to 75% regarding cell phones, ooh, is that how you can tell if someone is illegal, they have cell phones? They then make a comment about teenage unwed mothers, ooh, so only teenage unwed mothers in high school are illegal?

It is quite amusing that people who oppose illegal immigration no longer feel the need to validate anyone’s story just as long as it has an anti-illegal slant, that’s all that is necessary.

I’ll look at the posting and assume the author just believes that if you see an obese teenage unwed mother talking on her cell phone, she must be an illegal. Thanks, I’ll keep my eyes out for them and notify ICE.
