Why are we even counting --- the illegals should not even be in the schools. Get them out and save this country!

Well shouldn't the school already know THAT. How about when the kids signed up for school and did not have the proper identification. Why in the HELL where they even ALLOWED to get into the school....Can someone answer me that ????????, and if they are ILLEGAL...WHY are they not DEPORTED out of this country!!!!!!!!!!

What is the definition of an illigal immigrant student? Is it that they are here illigally or their parents as well? How do you check the status without requiring everybody to prove their status? I am not in the habit of carrying my birth certificate with me and would hope I would not have to do so. I am also concerned that the act of checking will drive students away from school, which for me is a bigger problem than having them get a free education at tax payers expense.
Boy your SMART...NOT.... If they are ILLEGAl why are they here. You want to give them an education...WHY ???????, You need to go back across the border with them.

Count them? How about charging them tuition just like you do other out-of-county squatters?

I vote for immigration reform! If they increase education funding that's out of MY taxes which they do NOT pay!!! They don't come here for a better life, they come here for a free ride on someone else's nickel. Kick them out of school and kick them out of the country with their parents!

<quoted text>That is what is wrong with our country and economy now, illegals not paying taxes, getting mortgages with no social secuirty or proof of income required, we are paying the taxes for the kids to be in school, but the parents aren't paying taxes. If we got them all out of here then we wouldn't be in this mess we are in. The slumb mortgage companies will go down and the reliable mortgage's will prevail, then this country will get back on it's feet where it belongs.
I wonder how they got mortgages with no down payment when they weren't even in this country legally. So how could they be legal occupants? At the very least they should have been required to come up with a 20% down payment like other investors.

Counting these Illegals need be taking, due to the fact that ILLEGAL HISPANICH COCKROACHES from MEXICO come over here and have kids like its the end of the world then abuse the welfare system by going on welfare b/c they have bunch of little cockroaches. So basically then they live off of their children and the money they get from the Gov. While the Mexican Gov sit back and clap their hands since it's not their problem. Not to mention Case De Maryland one of the BIGGEST supporter of illegals support them.

I am not racist. I take the same stand against illegal immigration whether illegals are from Costa Rica, Russia, the Sudan, Korea or Ireland. I see this strictly as a financial issue.

I agree with the Frederick officials that want to do this but the real problem is that the Fed's are not doing their job of protecting the border and deporting ALL illegals.
Have you seen the hoops that the Government has to jump through just to deport people? It has become insane. Between expanded cries for free counsel and renegade appellate courts, the illegals often find ways to tie up their removal for years. You want to make a difference, start making a fuss about expedited removal! Perhaps then the Government will be able to move forward.

The fact that illegals are even allowed to enroll in public schools is one the many failings of our country.

Americans who fail to not only pay taxes but file taxes to the IRS are subject to jail time. African American actor Wesley Snipes has been sentenced to three years in prison for not filing taxes so when are 30 million plus illegal immigrants not filing taxes going to be put in jail? Again foreign criminals should not be allowed to evade US Tax laws that Americans are sentenced to go to jail for. Fair and equal treatment would require jail time for each and every illegal immigrant not filing taxes in the USA. So when is the IRS and US government going to provide fair and equal treatment of foreign illegal immigrants who evade US tax laws? Americans would like to know.
You are absolutely right!!

I wish Fairfax county doing the same thing. We already have to pay too much for Personal Property Tax every year to cover free lunch, free health care for children of illegal alien.

You are correct about not targeting their children. The reason people are so upset is because illegals have the same rights as us born and raised american citizens and quit honestly they should NOT. Time and time again in the news the HISPANIC men are raping women and committing all sorts of crimes. We are sick and tired of it. They need to take this crap back to their own country.

How right you are. They use own own system against us. The American people are fed up with being taken advantage of by illegals and our own government. We're being pushed into taking the law in our own hands.

I feel encouraged that millions are protesting to their representatives about the bailout. Maybe illegal immigration will be next. Even though both candidates are for amnesty, maybe, just maybe we can fight it through our Congressmen that seemed to growing balls for a change.

You have a good point my good friend works in the appeals section in Immigration the appeals can take years mean while they have 4 or 5 kids and the Immigration Attorney's are making money we are paying for this clown and his family that keeps growing and growing then they are boo hooing how we are separating the family the whole thing is crazy, but they know what they are doing, us regular Joe's are getting hit in taxes for these con artists again and again!

Wow you can always contribute to Casa De Maryland and all those other "Open Border" groups dear that might make you feel better they will be glad to take your money or La Raza they help illegal aliens cross the border illegally and even tell them how to deal with ICE if they come to their homes or workplace in a raid.(How to break American Immigration law) Mind you I believe one if not both of the candidates did a speech at La Raza talk about insane!
