Americans should NOT be punished when it is the illegal aliens who brought their children here. Charity begins at home!

Still cracks me up that you rent and thus pay minimal taxes to support the school system. School funding is a mix of state income and local property tax. You work at hourly jobs in retail and thus pay minimal income tax (though with Brownbacks plan that'll change) and you rent so you pay no property tax on your residence.

No skin in the game but still foaming at the mouth.

No, because funding for American students is insufficient as it is. Illegals will strain the system beyond bearing.

I rent by choice as I know I can not do house repairs and am a responsible 'taxpayer'! I've paid taxes for many, many years! I worked for YEARS in an Administrative position making good money, paying my share of taxes! Due to work related injuries am no longer able to do that kind of work again!

I may have been reduced to 'retail' work, but at least I work instead of sitting home drawing welfare! Yes, I have skin the game and it appears you are the one "foaming at the mouth"!
