I heard on CNN that 70% of illegal aliens had less than a 6th grade education. And more than 50% of the Anchor Babies are dropping out of school before graduating from high school.They can't read and write their own language how can we expect them to read and write ours. In my opinion they're unteachable and we're importing Third World degenerates who are illegal lawbreakers! The U.S. will pay by the crimes they commit and the social services they suck up!

I always thought that claim was BS.
I don't think the Mexican/Central American immigrants are learning English any less than other immigrants.

All you have to do is take a trip to Chinatown, Koreantown, or any other Asian Enclave and see that whole neighborhoods will have more signs in their language than English.

I don't know what people base their claims of "being forced to speak English in the good ol days". How many of us were actually there?

As recent as the early 20th century, we know ethnic groups formed their enclaves where their assimilation into the new country wouldn't be so dramatic and overwhelming. They had their own stores, shops, restaurants where they formed their own community.

But their offspring ended up bilingual and very American. Just like Mexicans.

What was the education level of all the Irish, Germans, Italians, etc that immigrated here in the old days?

Unteachable? What a slap in the face to all the millions of Americans of Hispanic descent.

Some people don't see the real dangers of giving 20 million illegal aliens amnesty. They will out breed us and be the majority (66%) of the vote in America.

***

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) today unveiled an impact analysis that shows the Senate immigration bill – should it become law – would permit up to 217.1 million new legal immigrants into the United States over the next 20 years, a number equal to 66 percent of the total current population.

Then get out your Barry Manilow albums and the box-o-wine, and get working.

Nah, I'm not much a wine drinker, I'll just cut them off Welfare!

Homeland Security Edwin S. Rubenstein

The Department of Health and Human Services spent $672.9 billion in 2007 according to financial analyst Edwin S. Rubenstein.
“Immigrants are poorer, pay less tax, and are more likely to receive public benefits than American citizens,” said Edwin Rubenstein.

im sure you did. im sure you did.
why dont you cite a credible article backing your claim. till then you are just a cartoonish bigot.

please show me where "anchor babies" are cited as dropping out at a 50% rate. is that a national stat? is that a stat specific to miami? LA? chicago?

its an interesting number. i know that in LAUSD the graduation rates are pretty low, but that is a complicated issue having to do more with urban ills than citizenship. besides, many so called anchor babies, or citizens as they may be, serve this country as cops, teachers, military men, border patrol, chefs, etc. i dont think they are the problem.

but this is just evidence of your ignorance.


keep it up
you are only making it easier for people to discredit you.

Cancel birthright citizenship for any future Anchor Babies but deport their illegal alien parents no matter what.
