Jun 6, 2010 Full story: WGNTV Chicago 16

When Roberto Rodriguez arrived at the University of California campus here four years ago, he felt the emotional tug home so many other Hispanic first-generation college students talk about.

ENOUGH ALREADY.... ABOUT ILLEGAL ALIENS AND HISPANICS.
AMERIOCAS CAN CARE LESS WHEN WE ARE UNEMPLOYED AT 11-12& IN CA ESPCIALLY
SEND THESE LOOTER HOME TO MEXICO AND SOUTH.

QESTION -------WHAT ABOUT AMERICANS---LEGALS AMERICANS WHO ARE SO SICK OF THIS BULL.

l e r t **********WHO WILL TACKLE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION WHICH SHOULD BE A #1 TOP PRIORITY IN CA FOR ANY ELECTED OFFICIALS. THE AZ LAW MUST BE REENACTED ASAP!
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND HORRIFIC DISEASES ON THE RISE--- WHAT LEFTIST MEDIA, RADICAL LIBERALS, OBAMA & THE CORRUPT FEDS FAILS TO WARN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
UH, THIS IS CRIMINAL TO SAY THE LEAST!
ARE YOU SLEEPING STILL, FOLKS?
OUR KIDS AND FAMILIES ARE IN GRAVE DANGER.((CIRCULATE THIS TO THOSE YOU CARE ABOUT----MY BROTHER IN LAW WAS JUST DIAGNOSED WITH TB--11 DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL ---A HEALTHY 41 YO AMERICAN BORN AND RAISED HERE IN CA. THE ILLEGALS FLOODING THIS HOSPITAL WAS BEYOND DISGUSTING---AN IMMORAL)))
----------
HORRIFIC DISEASES ON THE RISE 900% BY ILLEGALS IMMIGRATION.
THANKS TO PELOSI- TYPES AND THE CORRUPT FEDS!****
Legal immigrants are required to have medical screening to ensure that they do not bring any contagious diseases into the United States.
Illegal aliens are not screened and many are carrying horrific third world diseases that do not belong in the USA. Many of these diseases are highly contagious and will infect citizens that come in contact with an infected illegal alien. This has already happened in restaurants, schools, and police forces.
Malaria It’s back!!Malaria tainted blood has been discovered in the blood supply.
Dengue It’s back! was first recognized in the 1950s, outbreaks on the rise in the United States.
Leprosy, In the 40 years prior to 2002, there were only 900 total cases of leprosy in the US. In the following three years there have been 9,000 cases and most were illegal aliens.
Tuberculosis (TB) It’s back! Most cases from illegal aliens from Mexico. 1,000,000,000 people will be newly infected, over 150 million people will get sick, and 36 million will die. TB is a highly contagious disease.Recently, there was a TB Outbreak In Oklahoma City in a hospital affecting thousands.
Chagas Disease (American Trypanosomiasis), endemic to South and Central America, is spread by infected triatomine bugs, known as the "kissing bugs," that bite people. It was unknown in the United States until fairly recently. It is now estimated that between 100,000 and 500,000 people in the US have Chagas Disease. Who is infected? Mostly illegal aliens.
Then there is Schistosomiasis, Guinea Worm Infection, Whooping cough, Cysticercosis, Morgellon's, and a host of others.
The left wing media and feds has kept this from Americans.
All these diseases and pathogens are being brought in by unscreened illegal aliens who then spread them to an unsuspecting population. Gives you something to think about the next time you are eating at a restaurant with the grunt work being done by illegal aliens who didn't have medical screening before preparing and handling your food.

Ridding the Nation of Illegal Alien Colonists would drastically increase the quality of public education for Hispanic citizens along with every one else.

A $3.5 million federal grant allowed UC-Riverside to strike a partnership with local community colleges to steer HISPANICS toward careers in science, technology, engineering and math fields. Through that same grant, the school offers $12-an-hour lab jobs to low-income and HISPANIC students whose heavy off-campus workload can destroy their studies.

I wish I had the money to send my kids to college never the less $12 dollars an hour so they can work on campus!
well well well

Illegals say they "just want to do the jobs you lazy gringos won't do" -- but they demand we subsidize their dumbed-down college educations.

So they can do those jobs with college degrees??

And they wonder why we hated gringos are fed up with their BS??

Viva SB-1070!
Viva 49 more SB-1070's!

While you're at it...

Why don't you demand these illegal alien descendants of Aztecs make reparations to the tribes their ancestors massacred long before Columbus?

I apologize if in my previous comment I misunderstood you -- I thought you were saying European "colonists" should go back to Europe.

Boo-hoo-hoo

Success is not awarded for just showing up. It must be earned. Earning success takes hard work.

yeah but... la familia raza shouldn't have to learn ingles though... so let's make CSULA a true "hispanic heritage" institution and demand all classes in espanol.

oh, and demand a lot more free childcare on campus... they're gonna need it... familia raza values, after all...

oh, and don't give too much homework - but since it'll be mainly "raza studies", won't need much homework anyway. just give them all portable mirrors...

The only way you can up grad rates among hispanics is to create a family atmosphere where education is important. Unfortunately, the majority of hispanics are more interested in running drugs, joining gangs, killing each other and pumping out anchor brats so they can bend the system over the sink.

I take my hat off to those Hispanics who came here legally and have worked hard to be a legitimate part of the American Dream.

More glorification of illegals' jackpot babies who get dumped in our schools at taxpayer expense. Most illegals see our school system as "free daycare" for their anchor brats who they don't give a squat about once they pop them out and get their welfare. Now we're supposed to feel sorry for them?!? Makes you want to vomit.

Won't be hard, just have other libs like me lower the education bar some more. Hey, if they can spell their names correctly, memorize their address and telephone number in case they get lost, can fill out a Burger King or Taco Bell job application form, and can be taught to vote only for people that have a (D) beside their name, that should be ample schooling to earn a High School Diploma, and therefore, have a good shot at recieving a "free" colledge scholarship at any University in California...
