My experience is with schools in predominantly hispanic neighborhoods, and yes they do get reduced or free tuition with the archdiocese picking up the rest.
You are right, though....a school in a rich neighborhood would not accept not pay for a poor hispanic student to go there unless they were really hurting for students.

c) The mexican flag is flown proudly at illegal rallies
d) Protests are done in Spanish, their signs are in spanish and again, if I am not mistaken, spanish is not the common language of either china or belerus.
e) Most illegals are in fact, hispanic.

So, if you as an hispanic individual are sick of having illegal and mexican/guatamalan/hondoran or any of the other nationalities sob tied together.....blame your community activists. They are the ones that set this 'racist' train in motion.
Truer words were never spoken . . .Another great post!
