Exodus follows ruling upholding state’s tough law cracking down on illegal immigration

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools in the wake of a court ruling that upheld the state’s tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration.

Education officials say scores of immigrant families have withdrawn their children from classes or kept them home this week, afraid that sending the kids to school would draw attention from authorities.

There are no precise statewide numbers. But several districts with large immigrant enrollments — from small towns to large urban districts — reported a sudden exodus of children of Hispanic parents, some of whom told officials they planned to leave the state to avoid trouble with the law, which requires schools to check students’ immigration status.

The anxiety has become so intense that the superintendent in one of the state’s largest cities, Huntsville, went on a Spanish-language television show Thursday to try to calm widespread worries.

OK, maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m one of those *heartless* people Rick Perry was talking about, but personally, I don’t see anything wrong with this ‘exodus‘, it may open up a lot of educational opportunities for AMERICAN kids. Legal AMERICAN kids…

Presidential candidate Rick Perry on Wednesday apologized for saying that anyone who opposed giving tuition breaks to the children of illegal immigrants “did not have a heart.”

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, the Texas governor said he had made a poor choice of words during the Sept. 22 presidential debate, but he stood by his view that the decision in his state to extend tuition breaks was the right one.

“I was probably a bit over-passionate by using that word and it was inappropriate,” Perry admitted. “In Texas in 2001 we had 181 members of the legislature – only four voted against this piece of legislation – because it wasn’t about immigration it was about education.” SOURCE

Maybe it wasn’t about immigration, maybe it should have been.

I have lived in Texas nearly all of my life, my children were born in Texas, I am a natural born American citizen, as is my children’s mother, but the state of Texas has never offered MY kids free tuition or tuition breaks.

Maybe Texas needs tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration too.

Technically, it’s the job of the United States government to secure the borders and to keep ILLEGALS out of the USA, the government has FAILED in that responsibility, so, wouldn’t it then stand to reason that the states could assume the RIGHT to defend themselves from illegal immigration and have the right to deport those that are indeed here illegally?

Why should WE have to pay for the education of those not in this nation legally when the children of Americans, legal Americans, are having to pay for their own education?

Look at this realistically, our schools, all over the nation, are FAILING, now, ask yourself,  why is that happening, and answer honestly.

Our schools are under-funded, under-staffed and are already catering to a multitude of students that are NOT Americans. In many cases our teachers are already having to speak Spanish, or other languages, just in order to teach the children of ILLEGALS that have NO intention of learning to speak English or becoming legal citizens.

Our schools are over-run by Latino gangs, and gangs of *other* ethnicities, our schools are NOT no longer schools, they are battle grounds; THAT is why American schools are failing and why American students are doing so poorly academically.

Teachers used to be educators and they were respected. Principals were THE LAW and God help you if you got sent to the office, or if your football coach or P.E. teacher had an even remotely good reason to break out *The Board of Education*!

Today, because of the inner-city strife, the gangs of ALL flavors, and the overall collapse of manners and respect for authority, an educator can’t do or say a word about the actions or overall behavior of a student. A Principal or Coach doesn’t dare discipline a student with any type of corporal punishment.

Law suits abound and PCness is the order of the day, at least for the educators, all because we allowed our educational system to be taken over by thugs, gangsters, drug heads, sex demons and perverts, but enough about the Teachers Union and tenure.

From the original story:

“In the case of this law, our students do not have anything to fear,” Casey Wardynski said in halting Spanish. He urged families to send students to class and explained that the state is only trying to compile statistics.

Police, he insisted, were not getting involved in schools.

The Police need to get involved, on ALL levels. We have LAWS in this nation, we have long been known as a nation OF laws. If we’re not going to enforce those laws, what’s the point in having them? We don’t get to pick and choose the laws that we want to obey, we obey all the laws that are in effect, and if we don’t, and we get caught breaking those laws, then we suffer the consequences and pay for our transgressions.

If that system is good enough for the American people, shouldn’t it apply equally as well for those here ILLEGALLY?

Anything less is an invitation to anarchy.

    1. A SCOTUS ruling Plyler v. Doe came up from Texas in 1982. In it the Supremes decided by a 5-4 margin that children of illegal immigrants are *entitled* to an education under the fourteenth amendment.

    2. I am not a user of the public schools in Texas, though I have been a payer for many years. The problem with the public schools is much more complex than simply having the children of illegals attending, though that is certainly a contributing factor.

    3. I’m sure some (probably most) of the attrition is due to tougher laws in Alabama. However, it is also the case that many of the parents are migrants anyway.

    4. As far as police getting involved, why would the truancy police not be getting involved? Maybe Alabama does not have mandatory school laws?

    Keep your powder dry

    • TexasFred says:

      Regarding truancy police, those were not the police I had in mind, I don’t want them to round em up and bring em back, to school…

      Round em up and DEPORT the bastards, THAT is the kind of police work I was referring to… :twisted:

      Yep, I’m *heartless*… :P

      And if there is a reason for me to drop support of Rick Perry, his BS about immigration and this Texas tuition thing will be exactly what does it too!

      And maybe it’s time for the 14th Amendment to be changed, these *immigrants* are here ILLEGALLY, not forced, the 14th was put in place to benefit former slaves, and well it should be, WETBACKS are here because they want to be, and have NO intention of becoming U.S. citizens…

  2. mrchuck says:

    We here in Texas want and need this exact same law!
    Just go to a garage sale and you will see more illegals with “anchor”children.
    It is time to deport ALL illegal aliens.

    • TexasFred says:

      In MY opinion it’s long PAST time to deport them ALL, it should have been going on since at least back in the 1950′s…

      But, it’s never too late to start, we just have to have some leadership that cares more about America than it does a bunch of scum from 3rd world nations…

  4. Katie says:

    I wonder if this will work for businesses too? Make a hostile environment for illegals and they will go home.

  5. Jim at CoF says:

    “If that system is good enough for the American people, shouldn’t it apply equally as well for those here ILLEGALLY?”

    That’s says it all, Fred. Well done!

  6. Most people don’t have a clue how much these non-English-speaking individuals, legal and illegal, are costing our school systems.

    Worse, average students who are not disabled or behavior problems, don’t get the instruction they should because teachers’ efforts and energies are sucked down the drain by all sorts of special programs that the teachers have to participate in.

    Call me “heartless” — I don’t care.

  7. Well..? I did say that I had reservations about Rick Perry… That said, I still believe that illegal immigration will end up being a major issue in the upcoming election. It is tied by the neck to all the major issues. Be that the economy, crime, failing schools, the drug war aside from other crime, terrorism both domestic and elsewhere. Heck, the list just keeps growing.

    Good for ‘Bama, and the judge that had the balls to uphold this new law.

  8. 1. Good for Alabama.
    2. To the illegals in ‘bama: write when you find work.
    3. Oh that’s right, the economy is partially crushed because we fund illegals.
    4. So you’re not finding work.
    5. Boo-damned-hoo.
