I believe this should not e an issue. I believe this issue is meant to keep us separated.

Do you wish to save some money?

$687,105,000,000 This is what we spend ANNUALLY.

Try focusing on what REALLY matters, and stop taking it out on CHILDREN. THAT is who truly hurts.Our healthcare system is crap because we spend a majority of our money on MILITARY. No, I am not talking soldiers here, they get peanuts.Soldiers also get crapped on when they return. Some come back to nothing, homeless, without work. Where are the yellow ribbons now? ENOUGH WITH THE GOD DAMN NATIONALISM.

Never have I thought I'd e so ashamed to e American. And don't give me a hard time, and tell me to leave. I am using my RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. Tell me, if your child misbehaved, would you not be concerned? If you loved them, yes you would. That is what I am doing, showing concern.

Yes because you can't take a child's education away.

they should not pay for their parents mistake, if they here undocumented , its not their fault, they had no choice other then come here following their parents... its not a criminal offense to be here undocumented its a civil offense, so for there matter they are not criminals and should have same education than everybody else

If they had to pay for their children's education, they wouldn't come here. We are too welcoming and it's costing us. Most of the children of illegals have free breakfast and lunch each day too. We shouldn't continue to raise their kids for them. There are AMERICAN kids who need our help

This is true. it's not the childrens fault BUT that doesn't make it right either. I am a single mother struggling. I have to pay for my health care for me and my 6 year old. i have to make my son's lunch for school everyday. I have to stretch my money after paying my bills to be able to afford food and sometimes i have to use my last resort which is the food bank. Thank god for them.
My neighbors upstairs have Mass Health it's mom and dad and 5 children and it says right on the application that they may receive Mass Health benefits regardless of their immigration status and they do. they receive food stamps and free breakfast and lunch at school everyday. They have been here for 6 years and work under the table so they are not paying taxes. I have been working since I was 16, which is almost 30 years and I can't get help. So of course lots of people in my same situation are getting upset.

No. They should pay to go to school in the US since the US legal residents who pay the tax to fund the schools.

LEO-THAT WOULD BE A WORTHWHILE THEORY IF AMERICANS CHILDRENS EDUCATION WERE AT STAKE -THIS IS ABOUT HIDING BEHIND CHILDREN -THESE ARE NOT AMERICANS THESE ARE MEXICANS AND YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK AT WHAT KIND OF SOCIETY AND GOVERMENT THEY HAVE BEFORE YOU GET ALL TEARY EYED PLAYING DEVILS ADVOCATE ON THEIR BEHALF SINCE YOU SEEM TO THINK THEY COULD REALLY CARE ABOUT BEING PART OF AMERICA OR A DEMOCRACY-
