Your right, however did you see that TX passed a law today about NO more sanctuary cities in Tx(about time). And that law enforcemnt can do something about it now. I'm justing waiting to see what Sheriff Wiles is going to say about it now, since he against it. Go figure he needs the votes to get reelected.

Its sad how low our turn out is, its no wonder this city has the mentality of 200 years ago. Do you duty, stop being lazy and go vote.

The county should promote voting a lot more than they do now. Thi is important Escobar, you do nothing about this issue and you call yourself a progressive

woww... Why do people even register to vote if they don't want to vote. Most young people complain of El Paso, well then take it into your own hands and change El Paso.

It's unfortunate to see such a small amount of the El Paso population voting for circumstances regarding education. It would have been interesting to hear the perspective of students in the Canutillo, Socorro, or Anthony school districts rather than a Franklin student in EPISD.

It annoys me how people can be so ignorant these days. Since the early 1600 and 1700s Americans have been fighting for their right to vote and not too long ago the United States granted universal suffrage (1920). How is it that we as an American people can fight for so many years for what we want, then become so careless about it once it is achieved. Only if people knew the real harm they're doing to themselves!

Now is the time to force Sheriff Wiles to do his sworn duty and quit coddling the ILLEGALS. If the Sheriff refuses to act on the new law he needs to be drummed out of his cushy job, he pulls in about 250 thou. ayear in his pension and retirement from P.D. as it is. Sheriff if you can't or won't do your job, step aside and let a true American enforce the job you can't seem to do.

I already exercised my right to vote on Monday. There is nothing to it, it doesn't hurt at all.

By the way I voted for Abe Peinado!

Universal suffering is still in effect given our foreign policy and our desire to inflict mass chaos on the world in my view, so that is not something confined to the roaring 20's. I do think people should vote, however, as I did just last week. I proudly cast my vote for money in our schools so that my 7 children can get more teaching and also better lunches.

Not anymore, thank you very much. I went to doctor last week and had the tapeworm removed. So I'm now back to living my usual, carefree life and enjoying all the lovely benefits that this country affords me.

Property owners unite! Get out and vote. Can you really afford a big hike in taxes?

It's not a matter of affordability but rather of accountability. We adults need to be accountable for how we raise and educate our kids which is why we need this increase. If we don't pass this bond, I won't be able to look the lovely children from my neighborhood in the eye anymore because they'll know I let them down.

No. I don't care about this issue. My kids go to private school.
