More About Illegals in California

FROM MY EMAIL BAG:

This
English teacher has phrased it the best I've seen
Yet.

CHEAP
TOMATOES?
This should make everyone think,
Be you Democrat, Republican or Independent
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
WORK)

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
Theunwed

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
America ..
(OUR
TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)


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 than 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,
etc, etc.
Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to 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 Of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases
Etc., etc, etc. For me, I'll pay more for
Tomatoes.


Americans,
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?

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
"political
Correctness
" 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
Including your Congressmen and
Senators.

CHEAP LABOR? 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

(our)
taxpayer's expense
.

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

Taxpayers
provide
Spanish language
signs, bulletins and printed
material.

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

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

The
American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti
and trash clean-up.

Cheap labor? YEAH
RIGHT!
Wake
up people!

THESE
ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR EITHER PARTY. 'AND WHEN THEY
LIE TO US AND DON'T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM
AT ONCE

Never
argue with an idiot --

They'll
bring you down to their level and beat you with their
experience!

I wonder when this was written originally (what year)? Because around here teachers are being told their contracts will not be renewed at their existing schools due to cut backs.

I'm not going to take issue with what was said in the email, but I'm always skeptical when I see emails like this where the person isn't identified.

I'm sure legal American kids also waste food.

I don't begrudge food to children. As for damaging equipment, that's just a sign of lack of upbringing. The parents, whether legal or illegal, are not teaching their children to take care of things that are not theirs.

The democratic party in the White House sabotaged gov't owned computers when they lost the Gore race to Bush.

I know for a fact that ALL kids dump immense amounts of food in the trash at all schools. It's disgraceful --picky eaters. the obesity must come from the pop and the chips after school.

It wouldn't matter to me if it were fictional writing--I know this is true about gov't grants and allotments --if you don't spend it, they won't give it to you the next year, and every entity seeking grants makes sure they spend it, needed or not --perhaps it's packaged with something they DO want. This was true at the local hospital that got grants for their buildings and so they were constantly upgrading the foyers, etc. Gov't money does usually mean wages for someone.

It is a psychological fact that kids in their middle school years become picky eaters. This is because their bodies slow down development from the high growth years of todlerhood and preschool. The best way to deal with this is just let them choose what foods they want to eat and not force them to eat (or clean their plates), because this will create lifelong psychosis that will create eating disorders later in life, like binge eating, overeating, anorexia, etc..

these emails are usually totally bogus propaganda anyways. A wise person is skeptical of any politically leaning chain email of any sort. This email is just, again, scapegoating illegal immigrants, when the real problem is the people who "HIRE" the illegal immigrants. They would not come here if no jobs were available to them.

I think fiction can depict truth. Either way, I have no trouble believing that it is not good to have teeming masses of poor illegals with a sense of entitlement to America's freebies --people who would get cutthroat in their violence and make life hazardous and miserable --like Mexico.

It's a fact that some health care facilities have shut down because they are overrun with illegals (and legals) who don't/can't pay.

What is wrong with Mexico that people don't want to live there --don't feel safe there? Aztec demonic heritage maybe.

Yes, people shouldn't hire them to avoid paying Americans more --but let's not forget that legal citizens got shoddy in their work and overly-demanding of high wages in our labor unions --and criminal in their protests--causing the preference for cheaper labor and the demise of the unions.
