Oppose the Dream Act

Don't forget that the "Dream Act" amnesty would add rocket fuel to this fire, as this would amnesty over 2 million illegal aliens (up to age 35!) who could then petition to bring in millions more of their generally impoverished, poorly educated family members -- who would be attracted to a liberal welfare (sanctuary) state like California. Combine this with the "anchor baby" syndrome and you get the picture.

You think our schools, roads, and prisons are crowded now, you ain't seen nothin yet if the "Dream Act" or other mass amnesties pass.

Call Reps and Senators and urge them to
oppose the "Dream Act" and other amnesties.

This isn't about California (although its most evident here). Nationwide Hispanics account for 25% of kindergarten students. Overall they're 20% of all students while comprising 15% of the country's population. Basically, the country as a whole is where California was a generation ago. The border must be secured if it takes militarization to do it. No amnesty and step up deportations of those who entered illegally. Fine the heck out of employers who knowingly higher illegal aliens. Just from environmental, budgetary and quality of life standpoints we do not need continued immigration from any source, least of all from the unskilled and undocumented who are resistant to assimilation. The law also needs to be changed to deny citizenship to "anchor babies". It makes no sense to grant automatic citizenship to children born of people here illegally. They should be the nationality of their parents. Japan or the UK doesn't grant automatic citizenship to children born of foreign nationals - why should we?

LAUSD spends $30K per student
AUGUST 20, 2010

By JOHN SEILER

The research by Adam Schaeffer of the Cato Institutes Center for Education Freedom seemed shocking:

The Los Angeles Unified School District spent $29,780 per student in fiscal year 2007-08.

Thatis way above the $10,000 as advertised by the school district, and as used in most studies.

The $29,780 per student figure means a class of 25 students would spend $744,500 a year.

California citizens are so lucky that they get to provide so much for the Colonists and their offspring. No sacrifice is too great for our children and our families to make in service to providing services and perks for the illegal alien community.

Even the dimmest of bulbs must realize at this point, that this is for the dissolution and total destruction of our nation.
That amnesty was Ronald Reagan's signature, and Bush Jr. wanted to do another until 9/11 diverted his energy. Republicans wanted the cheap labor; then the Dems wanted the voters. Please don't cry.

Joe, Latinos here are Native Americans too--they have a lot of Indian blood. And Native Americans wrote on walls too; just look at all the petroglyphs and rock paintings in the US. Put down the bottle, Joe, and make sure your own kids are in school and not eating too much junk food.

You have to understand that the majority of immigrants that cross the border illegally are people that come from no money and no education. The latino culture does encourage any of the things that you pointed out above. If you go to many latin american countries the people that are there and have jobs, are very educated and have great family values. In fact they look down upon people who are not educated more in latin america than they do here in the US. I mean you cannot even get a job in latin america without a proper education. Thats why these people come here. There are social classes in south and central america and if you aren't educated or come from money, you get treated like a second class citizen. I hate to say this but the culture that is brought by illegal immigrants who have no money or education is not the same culture that most latin americans are taught growing up in the middle class of most of these countries.

When Mexicans breed and immigrate themselves into majority status in California, how will they treat white people? will they give them scholarships and jobs? Will they praise diversity and help them get into college?

This can be a very good thing for California. This will be an enticement to help get Mother Mexico to take their El Norte territory BACK.

This is all in long term best interest of the 49 proud American States.

They take a great deal of "pride" in becoming "village idiots". It's a Chicano "Brown Pride" thing. You know, like the "right of passage" so to speak.

How many of these kids are so called anchor babies?? Don't sweat it, it's only your hard earned tax dollars paying for it. Thanks to all the supporters of our "sanctuary cities" and all the supporters of Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi, Brown, cupcake Newsome and soon Harris as well. Everyone complained but when it came time to put up they all cowered. You all wanted to fix it but when the votes got tallied you sure didn't show it.

The white paranoia is amusing.

To the person who asked how will Hispanics treat whites? About as well you treated them. The hatred and venomous posts are an indication.

To those seeking a scapegoat look no further than your elected officials [both dem and repub] and mostly businesses who elect to hire illegals.

Maybe there is a silver lining to this after all. Most of us have worked hard and payed our taxes. The taxes used to fund all of the social programs that as of this point in time we can't utilize because were gainfully employed taxpayers. Maybe now we can quit our jobs, charge everything on our credit cards, declare bankruptcy and get our "entitlements" too. It would be great to just kick back and relax for a change and let the new Majority pay for it all. We can start some new gangs, invent some new drugs and terrorize the new majority like they have been doing to us for all these years. The cool thing about this is we can't be deported.

Yes, look at rabbits for example. Stupid and multiply like crazy and are nonproductive because all they do is eat, sleep and screw at others expense. That reminds me of some residents in some of our cities like east la and watts for example.

I've been watching this happen for years. Not any news to me. My wife is a teacher for Long Beach Unified, in the 'hood of North Long Beach.

When she started, her school was 49% black, and 48% hispanic.

It's now 98% hispanic.

She has 37 students. 35 of them are hispanic.

28 of the 35 have no one at home (Parent or guardian) who speaks English.

My wife has had to take a Spanish class just to be able to do her job.

And while the majority of the kids may not be illegal, it wouldn't surprise me if nearly all of them have illegal parents.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
