This came from a Face Book post and is long but well worth the time to read it. Read it and think about immigration and schools and what it all means.That is what it really means either Libertarian wise or legal wise or illegal wise or any Washington wise or even Arizona wise. BTW: it did elicit a few commentez vous. LOL

I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California
high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its
students average lower socio-economic and income levels.
the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens,
Huntington Park, etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.... See More
Title 1 schools are on the free
breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I'm not
talking a glass of milk and roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar
with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of
this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the
I estimate that well over 50% of these students
are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have
cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed
teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class
without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.
I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my
department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though
there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the
appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a
free education in America.
I have had to intervene several times
for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal
immigrant students, here in the country less then 3 months, who raised
so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas" (whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.
free education, free food, free day care etc., etc, etc. Is it any
wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand
rights, privileges and entitlements?
To those who want to point
out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because
they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for
tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and
see the TRUE costs.
Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our
schools, overcrowding, new diseases. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.
Americans, we need to wake up.
It does, however, have everything to do with culture: It involves an American third-world culture that does not
value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness" that
we don't have the will to do anything about it.
If this makes
your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know.
CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?
Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage.
Consumers don't want
Government will tell you Americans don't want
But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap
labor" is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap
Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five
children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six
dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he
files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to

His children get free
breakfasts and lunches at school.
He requires bilingual teachers
He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.
If they are, or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI. If
qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (OUR) taxpayer's expense.
He doesn't worry about car insurance, life
insurance, or homeowners insurance.
Taxpayers provide Spanish
language signs, bulletins and printed material.
He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.
Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills AND his.
Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! THESE ARE THE
QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS OF EITHER PARTY. 'AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON'T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD
Please pass this on to as many as possible.
Immigration legislation is to be considered in 2010. This is important
to working Americans, our economy and our American culture and heritage.
