The findings would choke a horse. They attempted this in one MD county but the panderers shot it down. You know, it would be unfair to the children, and a form of discrimination.

Iím sorry, but we have a right to know the actual costs associated with illegal immigration. After all, itís our money.

Will it take into cosideration the cost to NOT educate? That's the only way to actually know the TRUE costs...

With enough evidence of how much it is costing us to educate illegal aliens (and that is just the tip of the iceberg, healthcare and other costs come to mind) hopefully it will prompt our federal government to remove the main magnet that the parents come here for and that is jobs. The parents and their kids in our schools would self-deport with no jobs or education for their kids made available. No costs involved with self-deportations and no costs involved in educating or not educating their children with the whole family back in the homeland instead.

How is self deporting accomplished? Not to mention, how do you get the true cost without knowing the net benefit of illegal immigrants?

If you can't answer the above questions, then you're just writing baseless assumptions predicated on your own warped value system.

It is coming in California: when push comes to shove; the Chicano activists will throw the (mostly) Hispanic illegal aliens under the bus to save their own skins.
