To think they would offer free tuition to advanced schooling ( which many States do) is beyond me.

Consider where the article got it's figures from.


Quote:
The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that the cost to local communities will reach $61.5 billion in 2010. This figure includes the price to educate children in grade schools, paying for incarceration and the cost of providing medical attention in area hospitals.
Quote:

What's more, he asked: "Can homo contraceptivus compete with homo progenitiva?" Answering his own rhetorical question, Tanton wrote that "perhaps this is the first instance in which those with their pants up are going to get caught by those with their pants down!" According to Tanton, "In California 2030, the non-Hispanic Whites and Asians will own the property, have the good jobs and education, speak one language and be mostly Protestant and 'other.' The Blacks and Hispanics will have the poor jobs, will lack education, own little property, speak another language and will be mainly Catholic." Furthermore, Tanton raised concerns about the "educability" of Hispanics. (10) In 1988 the media published the Tanton memo, causing a number of former supporters of U.S. English to cut ties with Tanton, including Walter Cronkite. (7)(8)

At least it mentions all races unlike LaRaza which puts Hispanics above other races. Not that two wrongs make a right but since you are pointing out observations.

"and children. . . " I was referring to the children born on U.S. soil. Read closer.

The Boston Herald can say the same for the undereducated American citizen. Their education is paid for by our taxes, and their low paying jobs result in lower or no taxes, and, usually, their children end up being supported by the tax payer. They cost this country billions as well.

Has a study been done comparing the cost to this country of illegal aliens to the cost to this country of the lower class citizens of our society?

If illegal aliens turn out to be more beneficial, maybe a trade can be made...

"Illegal + Illegal = Illegal"



I started out writing about a higher law but dropped back to the law o' the land. And now you
propose that the law o' the land is superseded by what? Your personal opinion? Interesting.

The children of legal residents have a right to live in this country. Thus, the socioeconomic status of their parents is irrelevant. Illegal aliens and their children are interlopers, and they are draining this country. Should we provide a tax-funded education for all of the children of the world, or just those SOB?
