Their parents came over illegally seeking opportunity and bestowed that in their kids.

    See here we blame the public education system for our kids shortcomings, when we have raised a bunch of entitled brats. However, when someone is smart enough to embrace it, good things happen for them. Obviously my tax dollars are used for foolish things, but educating someone that wants to learn is not foolish and benefits me as a member of society, whether they stay here and work or go back to their home country.

    You guys are to shortsided in your thought. Educating folks makes the world better.
    They and their parents stole from the taxpayers end of story. Toss them now! As soon as caught and stop screwing around! Not one dime of my hard earned money should go in any way to any illegal and that includes being forced to pay for them in American schools. Oh, as a LEGAL immigrant this is a slap in the face to playing by the rules.

    I'm sure some of our grandparents came here illegally too.

    I agree that education is a good thing. I also agree that the public schools do a decent job for those who want to learn.

    I can only imagine how bad it must be for someone to leave their country and enter another one illegally but that doesn't make it right. Either enforce and live by the law or change it. As it stands now anyone who enters the country illegally should be deported.

    Yes there are children born here from illegal immigrants but it wasn't their fault. They should not be penalized for the sins of their parents. Again, and if my memory serves me right, the law states if you are born here you are considered a citizen. If people don't like the law they need to,work to change it.

    Depends on the immigration laws at the time our grandparents arrived.

    The poor you will always have amoung you......" - Jesus Christ, Matthew 26:11
    John
    You get an A+
    As I read potus from time to time ,,I read a common theme
    Why is government promoting illegal immigration
    Why does government promote welfare
    Why does government promote war
    why does government promote uncontrolled spending
    why does the media twist facts
    why does government promote one race over another along with the media
    why does it seem like government want to control most things
    why do we live in a republic but behave like an oligarchy or dictatorship
    There are a million why's

    By Using worldly wisdom none will ever actually understand why... they will talk about simple solutions and the elected with give them complicated answers as to why they can't.
    Why because this is a spiritual problem that manifests in the flesh. The word of God has the simple solutions to all these subjects which most are covered.

    You fix the physical by fixing the spiritual period. The fact is if someone thinks they can fix my problems by taking more of my money and stifling commerce and feel the need to keep tabs on me,,,they are messed up spiritually and I'm not even talking about someone who doesn't believe in God. I'm talking of the God referenced in 11Cor. 4:4

    JC told some of the pharisee's that the devil was their father and not God almighty. In other words ,,,seed of the serpent. Those are the people controlling things. Seldom did the righteous control a government,,but often it was very subtly deceiving people.

    If this posts pisses some off here,,,then good,,wake up.

    OK there is your sunday morning sermon
    John 5 :30
    I can of my own self do nothing ,as I hear , I judge,,and my judgement is just, because I seek not my own will,,but the will of the father which hath sent me
    John 7:16 -- Jesus answered them and said my doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
    mark 16:9 -- So then after the lord had spoken unto them,he was received up in heaven, and sat on the right hand of God
    I Tim. 2:5 --For there is one God and one mediator between God and man ,, the man Christ Jesus

    Looks like that kind of talk has gone on for awhile...
