I never realized to what extent the immigrants are provided for with OUR TAX dollars. Our country needs to close the doors and take care of our elderly and children.
Cheap Tomatoes?

This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or

From a California school teacher:
"As you listen to the news about,
The student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things
That you should be aware of:

I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a
Large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1
School, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and
Income levels.

Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell
Gardens, Huntington Park, etc., where these students are protesting,
Are also Title 1 schools.

Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When
I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but
A full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make
A Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and
Trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least
Moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The
School also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant
Girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the
Inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family
Watch their kids. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing
Funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for
Anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new
Computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month
Later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who
Obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute
Teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here
In the country less then 3 months who raised so much hell with the
Female teachers, calling them "Putas" whores and throwing things that
The teachers were in tears.

Free medical, free education, free food, day care etc., etc., etc. Is
It any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to
Demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants
Contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and
Housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in
The real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs,
More crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding,
New diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.

We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster
Because we won't have the guts to enforce it.
Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily
Leave and return?

There are many hardworking Hispanic/American citizens that contribute
To our country and many that I consider my true friends. We should
Encourage and accept those Hispanics who have done it the right and
Legal way.

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world
Culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting
Pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to
Assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and
Worried about "politically correct" that we don't have the will to do
Anything about it

If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to
Everyone you know.

Isn't that what the whole immigration issue is about?

Business doesn't want to pay a decent wage

Consumers don't want expensive produce

Government will tell you Americans don't want the jobs

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase "cheap labor" is a
Myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He
Takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six
Dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he
Files an Income Tax Return, he gets an "earned income credit" of up to
$3,200 free.

He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent

He qualifies for food stamps

He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care

His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school

He requires bilingual teachers and books

He qualifies for relief from high energy bills

If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI.
Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is
at taxpayer's expense

He doesn't worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners

Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed

He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in

Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after
paying their bills and his.

The American taxpayer's also pay for increased crime, graffiti and
trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people!

Same **** different place! If this person is real and is a teacher his Bros and Sister's in the teachers union will hang him high on the nearest goal pole for those comments, then they will probably crucify him for not showing big Al's science fiction movie also! By the way I'm a card carrying republican member in two unions, boy do they lack a sence of humor at the meetings!
