I have an issue with educating illegals when it affects my kids school in a negative way. We just had to cut some programs my kids had been in due to funding cuts, ESl and free school lunch programs have killed the budget. Why should my kids whom are legal Americans have to pay for it.

Yes I so agree with many of the statements on here about illegals running over the schools and decreasing the quality of education for those who actually want to be there, and that many or most of these people don't want to learn english. And the statement that children learn from their parents is so true. If the parents don't care why should the kids?
We need to get to the root of the problem which is illegals coming here in the first place. "Well they're here now so I guess we'll eduacate them" No! That is just reinforcing their thinking that they can get whatever they want over here. Send em back!
(ok dussean you can jump down my throat now )

The government will educate them at the expense of the children of American citizens. I've already had to pull my son from one school in So. Cal because he was the only non-hispanic child in the class. The other children bullied him, refused to play with him, and would only speak Spanish to him. The teacher, who was also hispanic was no help either. She claimed that it was my son's fault for not trying harder? Trying harder to do what? Be Mexican?

I don't know where you live but here in Texas school taxes do not come out of your pay check, they are paid through property taxes...if you own a house you pay property school taxes even if you are out of work, don't pay them and they will take your house from you and sell it! It happens here every month on the second tuesday.

I live in what used to be a drug free and gang free small town. In the past
ten years the Mexican immigrants now comprise one third of the school
population, have two or more gangs at war with each other and many of them
have been arrested for selling drugs, painting the town with gang graffiti,
robbery, rape and drive-by shootings. I have a heart problem and had to enter
emergency four times in the past few months and the waiting room is almost
entirely Mexican. The same is true for the walk-in clinic. The immigrants
get a free pass but I must show my Medicare and medical supplement cards to
help subsidize their free medical needs.

They are taking advantage of our system and are taking over the west coast
with sheer numbers. They take advantage of the government free local surplus
food distribution which is meant to aid the poverty stricken, and they stand
in line with cell phones in their ear and fancy late model vans sitting at the
curb. No wonder they risk their lives to get here.

Yep America is just enabling illegal immigration. Increased guards and a larger fence at the border isn't the solution. America needs to stop giving these people countless priveleges that it's own people don't have then maybe they'd stop comming. Why not come to a place that will serve you up everything you want in exchange for disrespect, violence and slothful living??

A larger fence, do you mean a longer more secure fence?! 700 miles wide, not 700 miles in height. That's what Bush had signed into law.

Well sure that'll help but it's not the solution. Many go underground.
