Exactly!
Like there aren't Mexican-AMERICAN teachers who could do the job...if this program should exist at all (we're all "equal," right?).
Perhaps you are familiar with this quote from George Orwell's Animal Farm?

"All animals(people) are equal, but some animals(people)are more equal than others."

Why not put them on a bus and have them spend the summer in Mexico?
Why stop at one summer? How about putting them on a bus and having them spend every spring, summer, fall, and winter in their cesspool of a county. I'd happy drive the bus.

Oh, let's spay and neuter the lot as well....cause you know they will eventually come slithering back to feast on our welfare buffet.

Back in the day ...(as recently as the seventies, so not so long ago) every kid in Ukiah who wanted to save $$ for college, a car or just get new clothes for school showed up at the orchards, vineyards and packing sheds to pick fruit. It was hot work, but it paid well and I had several friends who made their way through UCD on their summer earnings.

Now, there is no work for our high school and college kids -- they don't speak spanish, so not hired.

Want to know what is wrong with our economy? Look no further ...

You are exactly right! When responses of "These people are not taking our jobs, they are doing jobs that we don't want" is stated, I laugh. How many of our children who were born in this country are having trouble getting a summer job? How many people who were born here and currently out of work are unable to even secure a minimum wage position because they don't speak spanish? Our language is English!!! Send these people back to Mexico. It is not my problem that they are from another country, though I do have a minor amount of empathy.
We need to "take care of our own" at this point in time. We need to educate our children who have tax paying parents, secure summer jobs for our youth, provide full time employment for those who have lost their jobs. Yet somehow illegal immigrants are taking these spots.
WHY does an illegal immigrant child recieve college scholarships? Did everybody forget that the word "illegal" means breaking the law? Breaking the law in every other aspect has repercussions, yet this seems to be the one offense that is accepted by not only society in general but law enforcement as well.
Good for AZ! Yet they are being criticized for their laws and enforcement. Good for them, I say.
The USA in general needs to adopt stricter immigration laws, much like Canada and Australia. These countries don't allow drifters, illegals, families with no marketable skills, etc., to enter their country and live off their citizens. We should not either!
