What I do not understand is why it is illegal for a US citizen to send their children to a school in a different district but a person who does not live in the country let alone the school district can send their child to a school in the U.S. and not only is it allowed bet they get bus service.

Don't forget the free meals, courtesy of working US taxpayers who were never asked if they wanted their money spent on kids who should be going to schools in their own country. Schools are scraping for loose change to serve the kids they should be serving, and should not take on the onus of another country's kids' education.

I heard and seen the kids tossing lots of food into the garbage cans because they don't like it. More waste.

That is a fact...a total waste of good food that would better serve the truly poor who would actually appreciate it.

It's the Democrats MO to buy votes by spreading other peoples money around. As long as there are Democrats, this type of garbage will continue to happen.

Ideology in Manifest Destiny & Mexican-American War

It promised land and therefore freedom and independence to its citizens, yet in order to be realized, Manifest Destiny had to deprive other people—Indians and Mexicans, most obviously—of the same assets and freedoms.

At its worst, Manifest Destiny provided a rationalization for violence, manipulation, greed, and selfishness.

Manifest Destiny's sense of American infallibility by writing that the country bore "the ark of Liberties" for all humans, therefore actions taken in national self-interest were actually for the benefit of people everywhere. When the term "Manifest Destiny" was coined in the 1840s, hundreds of thousands of white settlers were just beginning to journey into the "Far West".

There they encountered some 325,000 Indians who inhabited the Great Plains, California, the Pacific Northwest, and the Southwest. Notions of Anglo-Saxon racial superiority justified the displacement of not only these Indians, but also of the Mexicans.

Racist ideologies led many if not most Americans to believe that Mexicans, like Indians, were cowardly and lazy, and could therefore easily be beaten. Furthermore, such ideologies reasoned, inferior races' failure to develop their lands in a productive manner—along the lines of the Protestant work ethic—meant that they deserved to lose those lands to the Americans, who would make better use of it.

Popular writers, journalists, authors, and playwrights depicted Mexicans and especially Indians as an inferior, rapidly "disappearing" people who naturally vanished before the impending takeover of their lands by white Americans. Such characterizations sought to obscure the process of bloody warfare and, sometimes, outright genocide that many whites practiced against Mexicans and Indians. These cultural stereotypes remained intact well into the twentieth century, long after most American Indians had been confined to poor-quality land on reservations.

More than likely HE paid for his kids' meals, not the taxpayers. There is a difference. And the kids will usually come home and complain about the food, and when they do, panrents can send the kids with a sack lunch on the days they don't like the choices. Do they??? Not a chance. A hungry child does not do well in school.

If you had read and studied Zanoni's posts you'd know why. He already said it's because a new race, a new people, a new culture, unlike none-other is being formed here in the US.
And as much as you dislike Mexicans, they are far ahead of you in the creation of the new race.
Because you failed to accomplish your task, you're now being replaced by those who did better at accomplishing the task.
are you talking about a new race, or a new cult?

I can't believe an alien race from another planet taking over. that is just too far fetched. but a new cult like the nazis, or the muslims coming into power. now, that's something I can grasp.

please clarify.
