True she did have the right to express her views, but the way society promotes illegals like their some new form of the plague and constantly showing them in a negative light(im not disregarding that their illegal). How is the girl not supposed to feel like that Mexican boy/girl(s) in her math class is even worthy of breathing Americas air. The new generation are starting to have to endure the trials of older immigrants, like wise with traditional American citizens who have been here more than 200 years and are agaisn't immigration even thought their immigrants themselves(England, monarchy blah, blah, blah) are constantly indoctrinating their children into hating a generation that should be trying to fix something thats thought as a threat to this country...

It's an endless cycle of hypocrisy...

Sorry if my ideas are kind of everywhere im trying to get a handle on how to approach this forum and it's users...

She wasn't expressing her views, She was ASSIGNED THIS AS A CLASS PROJECT BY A TEACHER .

For all we know like many kids she couldn't care less about politics and simply picked a topic and a side. I personally hope she didn't but you seem to be jumping pretty fast to conclusions about this, unless I missed news report.

To top it off the THREAT YOU PERCEIVE WAS "“If you love your nation, stop illegal immigration.” Yep real threatening.

Because she didn't say Mexicans, She said illegal. Or do you think All Mexicans are Illegal. Maybe you think all Illegal Immigrants are Mexican. Either way let me assure you many fine Americans are Mexican.

Based on what. The School District Superintendent Dr. Fred Hayes sure thinks theres something to it, but obviously you know more then he does.


Athens Review, Athens, Texas - AISD investigates alleged beating

He added that, based on his years in education, he thinks someone approached Melanie and said something inappropriate to “try to scare her.” He said if they didn’t hit her, they at least threatened to hit her.


Could you folks AT LEAST READ the articles before posting. At least your giving me a great laugh, If not a challenge.
