200 *~$15,000.00 / Year =$3,000,000.00 savings.
Over 4 years:$12,000,000.00 savings to the school district.

Hmmm....
Looks good to me.

Al adminstrators of all the school systems are urging the illegals to keep bringing their kids to school because each kid brings in $7000 from the federal government in funding. AlAbama cant afford to run the schools without the federal dollars.

What a disgraceful comment. Those kids need an education, go to school in their home countries at the expense of those countries. This has nothing to do with race, and throwing that card on the table marks you as a fool.
This issue should be addressed by a federal law. Otherwise, some other unlucky states will be the recipients of these illegal freeloaders. Guess we'll have to wait it out till the next election. Hopefully, the federal law will include illegals of any race, color or religion who just love to use our "free" health care system for their expensive treatments and surgeries, in addition to destroying our school systems.

We've had immigration laws for a very long time and those parents knew before they came here that they were breaking the law. Those children would be in school if they or their parents were not here illegally.
It's time to quit blaming the law and blame those actually responsible for putting those children in that situation.

No, the federal law should be enforced by federal authorities. Since it is not, Alabama is doing the right thing. Send illegals back to their home countries, and let them go to school there; if their home countries are messed up, then let the returnees show some courage and FIX them when they return home. We are going to fix ours come 2012: VOTE OUT THE INCUMBENTS OF BOTH PARTIES.

Nobody tole them they couldn't go to school. They're just going to be counted and the damage their parents are doing to this nation will then become known. Naturally, they don't want people to see what they're doing, so they flee for greener pastures.

The gravy train is slowing down. The smart illegal hops off now.

Oh. So then you think it's perfectly OK that some one in Montana is paying taxes to put an illegal through school (for free) in Alabama?

I'd like to see your flowchart on that one!

Illegals are leaving Alabama due to the new law. What this demonstrates is that illegals respond to rational messages.

When we make it clear that they're not going to benefit by coming here and remaining here illegally, they get the message and decide it's time to go.

What this tells us is that enforcement really is effective and it works. Laws can only work if they're enforced.

This should encourage every other state to adopt Alabama's hard hitting statute.

If that happens, it probably wouldn't compare to the financial and economical damage caused by thousands of blood sucking illegal leeches and their offspring!

While we're sweeping out the trash,lets do something about American teenage girls and women having baby after baby to get a bigger gov't check. Let's put a cap of one,PERIOD. Let's pay nothing until she names de baby daddy and he is put into court ordered child support.Let's put a time limit on how long people can stay in public housing and only allow people to stay there past that time if they are enrolled in a program to improve their skills whether it be getting their GED,trade school,and even college. The illegals are bleeding the country but the projects are full of AMERICANS doing the same thing.
