My daughter is a Hispanic in a majority Hispanic public elementary school. There are only 23 kids in her first grade class this year and I have not seen any signs of her school or class being overburdened in any way. It's a wonderful school and I am very happy with it.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
Not inclined to put much stock in the numbers today...We have just as many reports that the numbers are being manipulated for political purposes. The fact is we have some 12 million (official number) I think more like 20 million here illegally, and no real plans on how to address this problem because the demo's want to stall it in the senate and blame reps for doing nothing, and reps want to just scream 'amnesty' for political purposes....Then there are the liars like you who just see someone say something you don't like and yell "racist"....You add nothing to a discussion.In the midst of all your fear-mongering based on... well... nothing but feelings... I'll just leave this here:
Net Migration from Mexico Falls to Zero—and Perhaps Less
A Pew Research Hispanic Center study finds that Border Patrol apprehensions of all unauthorized immigrants are at their lowest level since 1971. "In spite of (and perhaps because of) increases in the number of U.S. Border Patrol agents, apprehensions of Mexicans trying to cross the border illegally have plummeted in recent years—from more than 1 million in 2005 to 286,000 in 2011—a likely indication that fewer unauthorized migrants are trying to cross," it concluded.
Talk about distraction politics... "BUT LOOK AT THE BROWN PEOPLE CROSSING THE BORDER1!!!11!!!!!"
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
I went to a high school which was at least 95% white. Most of our parents were married and our school lacked nothing: stadium, swimming pool, advanced placement classes, leadership programs, you name it. The biggest "criminal" problem we had was that some of us smoked pot. Our graduation rate was pretty much 100%. When I go on-line almost everyone I graduated with is also on-line--I can tell by the solicitations I get every few years for yet another class reunion.
What does this mean?
I think it's obvious---I'm privileged.
