Why don't we invite all of the children of the world to attend school in the US? After all, our government has mandated a tax-funded education for ALL children.

Frederick commissioner wants to bill federal government for cost of educating illegal immigrants.

The battle over illegal immigration continues in Frederick County this week with the latest salvo involving school children who are in the country illegally.

Frederick County Public Schools spent $10,157 per child in 2006-07, the most recent year for which figures are available.

"The Supreme Court has ruled that the matter is federal, not state," Loose wrote in her e-mail to The Gazette. "Essentially immigrant students have the same right to a free public education as US citizens and permanent residents. Our board is not at all inclined to hinder any child's right of access to an education, and definitely is not inclined to inquire about documented status."

We can only hope that the schools of the Judge's kids and grandkids will be FLOODED with Illegal Alien offspring like my kid's schools are. I hope they set up and take all the Teacher's time away from teaching the Judge's kids while the have to spend every day all day teaching the ESL kids. That would be justice served.

You're going to have little Timmy go find his birth certificate and give it to his teacher?

Seriously?

Ridiculous.

Judge's probably have their kids in private schools.

I find this so odd, though. When I enrolled my children in public school they needed birth certificates, immunization records, proof of residency within the schools boundaries. I'm only surprised they didn't demand a dna swab. Yet illegals (see, there is no argument about educating the children of legal immigrants) can just show up? And we wonder why diseases like whooping cough and TB are making a drug resistant comeback.

For me, it all comes back to there being two different laws in the US -- there are the laws that citizens and legal immigrants have to adhere to, and then there are the laws that illegal immigrants don't have to adhere to. It is wrong, it is dangerous, and it will ultimately be a large reason people are turning into anti illegal immigration activists.

Our new President, Barack HUSSEIN, will not deal with this issue especially with his own aunt being illegal.

Absolutely! I was ‘required’ to provide my son’s birth certificate and immunization records signed by his doctor. I highly resent the fact that I have been forced to not only pay for the education of illegal alien children in our public schools, but have the added expense of paying for my son to attend a private school to get a quality education. The money I have spent on his private education for the past 12 years (K-11), I could have used for his college education. Perhaps our public schools would be solvent and provide a decent education for OUR children, if not for providing ESL classes and free breakfast/lunch for millions of illegal alien children.

If both public and private schools require legal citizens to provide birth certificates and proof of immunization, there is no reason illegals should have a free ride. As you have stated, we have two sets of laws in this country. It makes my blood boil.

So, Benicar now that Maryland is closing the chapter on their disastrous sanctuary policy, what if anything do you think will happen in terms of their IA education policies?

Unfortunately, they can't do anything due to the federal law mandating a tax-funded education for ALL children in this country, regardless of immigration status. We are forced to continue to foot the bill for millions of illegal alien children in this country, while our own children receive a substandard education.
