Migrants struggling for work in Texas return to Mexico as a burden | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Headline | International News


"...the returning emigrants add to the strain on the community, Cadena said.

"We don't have enough room in our schools, much less bilingual teachers, as some students arrive speaking English, and they can't fit in," she said..."

So, interesting scenerio here.


Two Mexican Nationals sneak across the border and have a child(at our expense but that is another outrage). They don't speak any English (or hardly any) yet somehow manage to raise this child in this hostile English speaking environment.

I'm sorry but that math just doesn't add up. How do they communicate with their English speaking little darling? Sign language? Who's lying here? This lie is being spread over and over just like the "breaking up families" bs we keep hearing about. The breakup of the family starts when one of the criminals takes point and crosses our border.

The hypocrisy never ends. Mexico is gifted at telling us what we need to do to facilitate their citizens in this country illegally but can't seem to manage their own problems.

That’s an excellent question. I have often wondered the same.

Anyone with common sense realizes children learn what they live. Children raised by Spanish-speaking parents will naturally learn the language. When my son was a toddler, I would point to his eyes, nose, mouth, ears, etc. and tell him in English the words to describe each body part. His daycare provider taught him the alphabet and how to count, again, in English. Likewise, his dad would deliberately speak to him in Spanish. Guess what? He learned BOTH languages.

The leader of this community has a message for its native sons and daughters who work in Texas and dream of returning home: Don't do it. You'll regret it.
It's the leader who regrets it.
