Hispanic children make up 91% of school enrollment growth | Texas Politics | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

"The number of Hispanic students has increased by 775,075"

"...the most stunning statistic when it comes to school enrollment is the number of children from low income families. That number has increased by 893,055 over the past 10 years - exceeding the overall student enrollment growth".

Goes with the hand...Houston is a safe haven for illegal aliens.

I wonder how the white children fare in public schools? I'm sure they are getting picked on for being a minority.

What does this thread have to do with illegal immigration? all you can do is suppose what percentage maybe undocument children; but since the Supreme Court ruled all children a free education regardless of immigration status, what is the number of "Hispanic" children really mean.

It means tons of money being spent to educate kids who shouldn't be here in the first place. It means less services for children who are entitled to them. It means higher income taxes and higher property taxes.

It is precisely this kind of insolence and smugness that the illegals have been exhibiting that has caused the citizens of our great nation to open their eyes and find their desire to press the eject button on the interlopers. Keep up the good work.

Agreed. It isn't just the insolence and smugness displayed by the illegals but some Americans also. Why no concern for this abusiveness by illegal immigration and fight for change instead?

If they are here we must educate them - however, such huge numbers coming in cause problems for all. Controlling the borders would obviate a lot of the problems.
