Still skipping class

Students in Los Fresnos march against immigration reform
About 80 students walked out of school in this South Texas town today to protest proposed legislation that would crack down on illegal immigrants.

Some chanted and carried signs that read, "Viva Mexico."

"We're here to support Mexico," 15-year-old student Carla Arredondo...

"I'm here supporting the illegals," said Maria J. Garcia, a mother of one of the students.

Please... keep talking.

Illegals' Amnesty Could Cost $60 Billion a Year, Group Says
By Randy Hall Staff Writer/Editor
April 11, 2006

( - If an illegal immigrant amnesty or guest worker program similar to the ones being contemplated by the U.S. Senate and supported by President Bush were enacted, the cost to state and local governments would be staggering, an immigration reform group charged Tuesday.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates that state and local costs associated with illegal immigration for public education, health care and incarceration, now about $36 billion a year, would balloon to $61.5 billion by 2010 -- a 70 percent increase -- and increase to $106.3 billion by 2020.

As a result of an amnesty and a vastly expanded guest worker program, millions of current illegal aliens would gain legal access to government programs and services, a FAIR analysis states.

Moreover, newly legalized aliens would be allowed to bring their dependents to this country, adding to the burdens on schools and public health care. Similarly, state and local governments would have to provide for the education and health care of the dependents of the 400,000 new guest workers called for in the Senate proposal.

"From every possible angle, an illegal alien amnesty and guest worker program would be a fiscal and administrative nightmare," said Dan Stein, president of FAIR. "Never mind the fact that an illegal alien amnesty is a moral betrayal of the American public and immigrants who played by the rules.

"It would be an unfunded federal mandate that will bankrupt states, counties and cities all across the United States," Stein added.

Contrary to claims by proponents of amnesty, the tax contributions of newly legalized illegal aliens would not offset the additional costs, he stated. The estimated 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. are overwhelmingly poorly educated and low skilled.

Even with legalization, their earning potential would be very limited, Stein noted. With the ability to legitimately claim dependents on their returns, their tax contributions would be negligible at best, and with programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit, many will actually get more back than they pay in.

None of the federal or local costs associated with an illegal alien amnesty or a massive guest worker program has even been considered as part of the Senate's deliberations, he said.

When asked point blank about the ramifications of their proposed legislation, Senate amnesty and guest worker supporters admitted that they have not been worked out. "The devil is in the details," said the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy of Vermont.

"'The devil is in the details' is an utterly reckless and irresponsible way to conduct public policy," responded Stein. "The fiscal, social, environmental and demographic consequences of what the Senate is proposing would be staggering.

"In an effort to respond to special interest pressure, the Senate and the Bush administration seem prepared to rush forward without any rational assessment of what it would mean for the future of the nation," he noted.

"We have seen where the 'devil is in the details' approach has gotten us in Iraq. The president and others pushing amnesty and guest workers have an obligation to think this one all the way through before acting," Stein concluded.

A breakdown of the calculation of amnesty costs and a state by state impact analysis can be found at FAIR's website.

Very good, very good. They are doing the same in Woodburn and several other school districts around Oregon. This is definately what make America great.

What would make them great would be to actually graduate from high school. Instead they're known for their incredibly high drop out rates. No wonder that they are ignorantly lead around like sheep.

Josh Roberts double-locked the door behind him and
anxiously peeked through the curtains. He didn’t see
any of the dreaded black uniforms of the Federales.
Roberts turned on his computer and re-set the
preferences for English grammar instead of Spanish.
Ever since Texas independence turned the state into
Nuevo Tejas, all English language publications were
illegal. If anyone found out about Liberty, Robert’s
underground newspaper, he and his family would be
tossed into the Dallas County jail for . . . well, who
knew for how long?
Roberts had worked for the Dallas Morning News before
it was banned and re-born as the Dallas Reconquista.
Reconquista stood for re-conquest; the acquisition by
immigration of the lost Mexican territories of Texas,
California, New Mexico and Arizona. It once seemed
like a ridiculous idea, but the numbers made it a
After the 2006 amnesty bill gave citizenship to
fifteen million illegal immigrants, another twenty
million Latino illegal immigrants promptly moved to
Texas. What Mexico lost at San Jacinto they won back
with immigration. Once they had a majority of the
electorate, the Latinos simply voted in Latino mayors,
chiefs of police, state legislators and – finally –
the Governor.
Vicente Diaz was the Governor until he declared Texas
independence from the U.S. and made himself
Presidente. The 1876 Texas constitution vaguely
allowed independence. But the real power behind
independence came from the Mexico/Venezuela oil
embargo and the millions of immigrants marching in the
streets. The U.S. politicians quickly bowed to the
wishes of Latino voters in their own states and let
Texas go.
However, an aide on Diaz’s staff had slipped Roberts
secret documents which proved that the Mexican drug
cartels provided the financing for Diaz. This was the
bombshell Roberts planned for the front page of
Liberty. As Roberts opened his newspaper layout
program on his laptop, he heard a knock at the door.
He went to the door and looked through the peephole.
All he saw were black uniforms.
