Montgomery County officials say they welcome an increase in state funding this year but question whether the relatively modest growth will keep pace with growing pockets of diversity and impoverishment in the wealthy Washington suburb.

"As our population has shifted, we are running into higher educational expenses," said state Sen. Karen Montgomery, D-Silver Spring. "We are trying to do the right thing. We have large areas where people don't seem to understand the extent of poverty there."

According to demographers, the radical shift from just a decade ago is tied to younger families with high birthrates -- often immigrant populations dependent on low-income jobs battered by the recession. For the first time in its history, Montgomery County is now majority-minority, as communities of Hispanic and Asian residents have filled neighborhoods formerly dominated by whites.

This is happening all across the country. Someone remind me again how and why open borders are a good thing for this country?

Liberals always ask for proof of the systemic destruction of our country. Well, here's your proof.

Ask Reagan, W, McCain or Perry. The GOP loves illegals and welcomes them in with open arms.

Regardless of what your examples do, the question still remains: How do open borders help our country when those open borders allow low-skilled workers to displace tax-paying Americans?

There's a major problem happening when a state/city/county sees population growth, receives additional state and federal funds due to that population growth, only to see those funds obliterated in the face of a crowd of people who suck more out of America than it gives back.

And you support this. Right?
