  • Just want to add that I agree with FREEDOM... AZ stinks! I live here and UGH!...The fire marshall had to shut down the school at the beginning of the year because the classes were so over run that they were holding class in the hallway. This is due in great part to the children of illegals. (this is not only my opinion, but facts that were published in the paper and ran on the newscasts that evening)

  • In Arizona that is one way they have been catching illegal Mexicans. They figure out student's parents are not legal and send the authorities out and round them up. It's sad.

  • Children must get an education. The only thing that I thing is not fair is that these parents don't pay taxes therefore they don't contribute ($$) for their children to get an education. The rest of us taxpayers will have to.

  • gaill- how is that sad?

    i have many friends who are naturalized citizens, whom i have the utmost respect for. they decided to make a life change, and did it the legal way.

    if i wanted to move to canada (which is sounding better, and better each day) i wouldn't back a bag, and go hiking into the wilderness...

  • Yes but it is hard because typically their families move around a lot (so as not to get caught) so their children's education suffers.

  • yes they do! that is why so many public school suffer with funding to their schools. Many schools have illegal immigrant children and not enough money because these childrens parents do not pay taxes.

  • Its sad they are using kids to catch the parents. Parents are afraid to send their kids to school.

    There isn't a legal way for the Mexicans to come to the US. If there was they would do it. They don't want to have to live with the fear and restrictions of being an illegal resident. Would you.
