The district said immigration sweeps and the record number of foreclosures are to blame.

At Sunset Elementary School, only a fraction of the children who start out in kindergarten will stay until fifth grade.
KPHO News

The effort to force out illegal aliens is bearing fruit here in the Phx area.

Teachers have less students (because all the illegal anchor babies are gone) so they can dedicate more time to each individual student.

So we have a higher number of uneducated people? They will come back. They are American citizens. Plus, one of the largest waste of time in the classroom is the stupid state mandated going over every single point of how every thing relates to the standards. Immigrants, at least from what my dad and his co-workers said were less distracting in general and required less time than other students.

yea.....they are citizens. It is a shame that they have criminal parents who feel no shame in using children as pawns to gain citizenship. Maybe their illegal parents can take them back to their native countries. We really need to get rid of birthright citizenship.

I'm pretty sure parents are trying to provide a good education and standard of living to their children. So I really wouldn't call them pawns. Is there a way to have an easier time across the border legally? Clearly there is a huge demographic that wants to come and we need to somehow incorporate them legally otherwise we have our current situation.

Good because their parents were criminal lawbreakers-------------we do not need their kind here in the USA.

Again: quit muddying the line between legal immigrants and illegal aliens------------there is a difference.

We certainly do not need those people.

As I have stated in the past: Mexico needs to grow up and take care of its own---------------it is not a poor nation.

Yes: I used the word 'Mexico' since most illegals come from that one nation.
