Default In the Under-5 Set, Minority Becoming the Majority

The implications for governments and communities are wide-ranging, demographers said. As the current crop of youngsters reaches kindergarten age, school systems that would otherwise be losing students will continue to grow or remain stable. They will also need to accommodate an ever-larger number of students who were raised in "immigrant" households where English was not spoken.



In addition, although most Hispanic children younger than 5 are native-born U.S. citizens and therefore eligible for government health care and other benefits, research indicates that if their parents are not U.S. citizens, they will be less likely to claim assistance, said Michael Fix, director of studies at the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute.



"All of this really reinforces the importance for counties to increase their investment in early childhood development now," Fix said ."If you don't make that investment, one of the penalties you pay down the line is that you have kids in school who don't speak English well and whose overall performance lags behind."



Fix pointed to studies indicating that as many as 75 percent of elementary school children learning English as a second language were born in the United States.

Translation: we are fast becoming a nation of illegal aliens with anchor babies who will more likely than not grow up and become second generation illiterate, non English speaking, non taxpaying welfare recipients.

"Even more worrisome is that over half of the English-as-a-second-language learners in high school were native born," Fix added.
This is an interesting article. In other words, not only are we paying for the K-12 education for millions of children illegally residing in our country, we are also footing the bill for ESL classes for anchors (so-called US citizens) who do not speak English even at the high school level. Whatís wrong with this picture? This expense is in addition to our tax dollars paying for the prenatal and postnatal care of the anchors.

Iím not surprised, given the fact that both parents are non-English-speaking illegal aliens. Two illegals simply cannot produce a legal citizen. Obviously, the myriad Spanish language accommodations serve only to ensure non-assimilation by the anchors born in this country. A perpetual tax burden.

Of course, the pro-illegal Wash Post would have us believe the families of anchors donít receive benefits. We know this is a lie.

We've both stated these facts time and again. The fact that they come here with absolutely no regard or respect for our laws, virtually no education, and very little ability to learn much of anything that requires an independent thought process, simply predisposes their anchor babies to repetition of the same cycle of ignorance, lawlessness, arrogance and sense of entitlement.

Even if we sealed our borders today and placed a temporary moratorium on all immigration it will be decades before the US recovers from this illegal alien avalanche and all of the negative after shocks that will result from it.

As for the Washington post, the same can be said for the majority of MSM newspaper and other media outlets.

All the more reason to close/lock at least the southern border, do mass deportations (which are indeed occurring as we speak, approximately 1 million have self deported already), cancel birthright citizenship for US born kids if both parents are here illegally (grandfather in the existing Anchors), etc.

A little common sense goes a long way. While I am happy that many have begun enforcement of our laws, the downside is that there is nothing to stop them from promptly returning. As illustrated by their cowardly act of fleeing Mexico, the only thing that will stop them is fear of physical punishment.

In addition to fining and jailing employers and other enablers who have legalized themselves under the guise of "civil rights groups", we need to adopt the policies that makes them flee Mexico.

Posting armed BPO around the entire perimeter with shoot to kill orders would work wonders as well. All it would take is one illustration that we are sick of this invasion and that we mean business.

We all know that word of mouth is their most effective way of communication. I guarantee you that one example would be all that is necessary to make them retreat and surrender.

I grew up in a minority majority area. I loved it and wouldn't have had it any other way. There is no group dominating the other. Racial and ethnic tensions tend to be lower. Diversity is prized rather used as a barrier.

The same guy provided these stats, so the part you agreed with must be a lie too.

Many areas of Houston are like this as well. Sure there are bad seeds everywhere but in general, no matter your race you can pretty much live where you want to in Houston. Racial incidents of last few years turned out to be staged by home owners themselves. Probably looking for insurance payout or something twisted like that.

The world inside your head is a very scary place. They are obviously intelligent enough to get to the US undetected, obtain identification (legal or not), secure work, buy cars, pay rent or buy houses, pay utilities, value the importance of education by sending their kids (anchor or not) to school, etc. etc. etc. Right or wrong I highly doubt this qualifies as ignorant and inability to learn. Yes they have broken laws and have no right to hold an attitude of entitlement but this is not an indication nor does it mean the children will continue the cycle.

It's not a matter of "agreeing" with this article. As much as possible, I base my opinions on the "facts" of the matter. There is overwhelming evidence to contradict his assertion. Illegal aliens with, or without anchors, do in fact avail themselves of ALL of the benefits afforded legal citizens. If you have credible evidence to refute this, please share.

The Washington Post is notoriously pro-illegal. Therefore, I take everything I read pertaining to illegal immigration with a grain of salt. Their articles are highly biased in favor of illegal aliens. Thus, I seriously doubt they would report on the non-assimilation of illegal alien anchor babies if it were not true. It would be tantamount to La Raza releasing the report.
