Hell No! Do the American people not understand the term ILLEGAL?? That means they are breaking the law, so why reward criminals by overcrowding the public school system with children of criminals?? This is insanity and exactly why our country has gone down the sh*tter.

Enough is enough. I am being drained with ever increasing taxes and am considering leaving the state. I'm legal, why aren't they.

Everyone in the United States is entitled to a free and public education and that is a law. Who are we do deny anyone an education?

Children stay. We should give education to everyone, as long as they are paying taxes. You would be very surprised, and I would like to see an accurate number, on how many illegal immigrants pay taxex. Why don't we stop giving public school educations to all of the
Rich white guys who traffic in human misery, just to be rich. Or have them pay the school system. These guys are th3 criminals.

I am from H'town but in Tn., now, and we have many Central Americans here; legal and illegal. The renters pay taxes through the landlords that they are renting from. Income producing property is taxed at a greater rate than individual homes are (usually!) Down here there is an almost 10% sales tax on almost everything, they pay into that when they shop with the money that they earn. Many of the illegals are using social security cards from (?) and they have deductions withdrawn from their paychecks; however, they will not be able to collect later on. This sure adds to the "coffers" of the Social Security dept. We are in the midst of a big scandal, locally, where the outvoted tax assessor for our county has been found to have given HUGE breaks to apartment comples owners. Just about 12 of these fat-cats have been getting assessed as only having "undeveloped" land or vastly depreciated buildings where they are collecting hundreds if not thousands of rental payments each month. Our area is hurting for a school and we just had a tax increase, but most likely wouldn't have needed it if those less than 20 "apartment barons" had been taxed properly. There is greed everywhere and I agree that ALL should go through what it takes to be legally here, but reality is what it is. The great influx has actually brought in a LOT of federal money to the local schools, since there are now much greater degrees of low-income "starter families". It's a very complex issue.

We don't have enough money to support our own kids, we should not take on people that are not here the right way, legally!

we don't have enough money for our own children in school! Taking on more children that are here illegally will have free government assistance! Which will cause a burden to our economic situation.
