Go ahead and keep reporting and looking like an idiot, the Constitution guarantees thier place in the school system, remember learning about equal protection under the law when you went to school, you would rather have these children denied so they could not get educated at all and you would support them later because they had no education and don't forget those that are born here are citizens. You would deport them in railroad cars? You would deny basic human rights because they are not citizens? May-be you think that the Foreign language will rub off, or your child might bring one home. We have a problem one that will not be solved by denying children an education or basic human rights.
Everytime an immigrant buys something they pay taxes, and many times with fake ids they pay into social security and IRS. Granted not enough but I know a lot of people here that don't pay what they use either.

Default Taxes

Illegal aliens are not paying taxes to support the school

You could say the same thing about homeless people. Schools are funded primarily through property taxes, and renters support schools through their landlord's property taxes.

And what's the ratio of homeless students vs illegal students?? 1 homeless student to every 10,000 illegals???

That's too broad of a comparison to be taken seriously.

We should take care of our own. Support the people that need the break. not the ones doing the breaking.

Absolutely, the Local schools and State Boards of Edcuation should report illegal immigrants cross the country. El Paso is awful, as the cost of living maybe inexpensive (purchasing property) property taxes are outrageous. Of course the elevated taxes are to offset the cost of illegals migrating across our borders for a free education. They come for school and go home. Futhermore, they come across the border racing through housing developments to take their children to school and repeat the same to pick them up. More is to be said about the legal (residents) family members of El Paso, as many of them encourage the illegal behaviors of the family members that transport their children across the border to attend U.S. schools.

Every legal resident/citizen of the U.S. should complain and contact their congressmen/senators, regarding this issue. It effects every taxpayer in some form. If not the education system, it will be the healthcare system. Many hosptials will provide care for illegals, to include charity visits for HomeHealth Care upon discharge. You ask how does this affect me. Thanks for asking. It increases insurance premimums, co-payments and decreases the amount most insurance will reimburse hospitals etc. Simply because the hospital must recoup cost some how.

Report them It's the right thing to do.

Why would you report them? Yeah, they are here illegally and it's definently wrong, but aside from that why would you waste your time doing something so meaningless? Why does deporting poor migrant families without papers constitute as patriotic? Why don't you receive information on people who commit real crimes? There was a girl at my old work who told me her friend and husband reproduced movies, I was going to contact the U.S. Marshalls, but left before I could have details.

Let me get this straight, you would report the American Citizens breaking a law in their own country, but not the Illegals who are not supposed to be here in the first place. Oh yeah I can see how THAT is definitely the "PATRIOTIC" thing to do....

How about this Mr. college scholar... REPORT THEM BOTH !!!!!... THAT would be the PATRIOTIC thing to do...

If you take ten thousand dollars, you are a thief. If you take one dollar, you are a thief. Breaking the law is breaking the law.

If you are Joe citizen and you know the neighbor is manufacturing crack and you don't report it, you are an accesory, you are aiding and abeting and you can and will go to jail if you are found out. For not reporting somebody who is breaking the law. What free's a school from that duty? Why are they exempt from the law? Why are they above everybody else?

One of the very best things about the United States is that it is a big country with many different places to live. And everyone is free to live wherever he or she chooses. School districts are funded primarily through property taxes, as was pointed out earlier. If a school district is being overrun with anchor babies and illegal alien children, all of whom must be educated by law, the citizens of that community do have choices. Those who feel as you do, can stay in the community and pay the rapidly escalating property taxes that are required for this. Others may say, "No thanks" and relocate to an area that does not have this problem. Why should a US citizen be expected to pick up the very expensive tab for educating citizens of Guatemala or Mexico when simply relocating to another area will enable that family to do things such as save for their own children's education? And there is not a thing you or your pro-illegal brethren can do to about it. Except call people names.
