    HELP, TOM TANCREDO, HELP!!!!

    Story LINK

    Excerpts:

    "Even Gov. Jeb Bush chimed in, commenting that schools should not be concerned with immigration status."

    "After investigating 21 schools, the state this spring ordered the district to stop asking for immigrant-status documentation because it violates federal civil-rights laws."

    ""They put me in a room where they told me that they could deport me with the children right at that moment," Ordonez said in Spanish. "They were treating me as if I had committed some sort of crime." (What part of illegal does she not understand? [​IMG])

    "The state also called on schools to refrain from gathering data on immigration status."

    "This past school year, more than 10,500 foreign-born students - a majority of them native Spanish-speakers - were enrolled in Orange County programs that teach English as a second language."

    "I would be nervous, too, if I were an illegal immigrant and I go to register my kids and you take me to the police," Rivera said. "These sensitivity issues have been raised over, over and over and over again. Evidently, in some schools this has not been taken seriously."(Again, what part of illegal is not being understood? [​IMG] )

    This is the same conservative governor who has recommended issuing special drivers licenses for illegal immigrants.

    I acrually agree with the Gov, but for different reasons.

    The states shouldn't be doing this. It should be the federal government that does this. The state shouldn't have to spend a dime doing this. It's not the fault of the states that the federal government is lax on border security.

    Unfortunately , in Texas, it's not the state that foots the bill either. It's the local property owner.
