Wonder how many are actually going to school within the CVUSD. Free backpacks & school supplies, free breakfast & lunch, free school uniforms, plus they don't have to speak English (the teachers get to do that as well as the parenting/babysitting/discipli ne). Wow-these kids and their parents have it made.

Papi must spend too much on cerveza. Looks like a Catholic herd to me, good luck signing them up for your Assembly church.

Why do they have so many kids if they can't afford it?

How do you know they were all Mexicans? You just think they were. How do you know "they" have a lot of kids? You just think "they" do. How do you know Papi drinks cereveza? You just think they do;
Goodness such racism is not called for. Were you all there? If you were, you must fit in the descriptions given.

To White boy playing ball-Oh I see. So you were there and asked all 1000+ kids if they were Mexican and they said yes. That must have taken a lot of time.

To I see- Wow! You can tell a persons nationality by looking at a picture of a couple children.

To both of you-Those are still racist comments and they show your ignorance.

You guys are lame as [email protected].. You are racist and then you wonder why people talk about your race... STUPID ignorant people. And for the stupid remark on "y hav so many kids if you cant support them". There may have been a time when they could afford them, havent you heard of all the lay offs and cut backs??? Oh wait, maybe not because your too busy being a FKN RACIST...

So many negative comments on here. If these kids need help and its being made available who the hell do you people think you are spewing so much negativity about it. So what if it was mostly Mexicans... You know the sgv has a lot of Mexican population. They have a different culture than us and some people think its the best thing to have a large family. I'm not saying its OK to keep having kids when you can't support the ones you already have. But it isn't the childrens fault. How dare you all make such nasty, racist comments about these families. You have no idea what their situation may be. And if taxpayers money is spent on anything I'd rather it be for children to have a better experience in school, regardless of what mistakes their parents have made. You pigs disgust me.
