Paying to Educate Mexican Kids

From Newsbusters:

As we all know these days, American's tax dollars are being used to pay for all sorts of things and given to people who are not even citizens of this country. Some states give non-citizens welfare benefits. Some have passed laws preventing welfare benefits from being given to illegals. Some states have passed laws that give an equivalent in-state tuition to illegals attending that state's universities. California is seeking to give illegals free college tuition. And the Senate is trying to give illegals who are attending college an automatic citizenship.

It now seems that American's tax dollars are also paying to educate Mexican kids in our public school even though those kids still live in Mexico. No, these are not the classic illegals in the sense that they have illegally crossed our border to reside and attend our schools. These kids are from families that still live in Mexico. They are sent across the border to take classes in our public schools.

At the beginning of September, Channel 5 News revealed a shocking story in Roma, Texas. As their cameras chronicled, each morning dozens of Mexican kids are crossing the border from Mexico into the Texas border town of Roma to attend an American school, free of charge. You read that correctly. American tax money is funding the education of kids who actually live IN Mexico and who are illegally crossing the border every single day to attend U.S. schools. I have waited a suitable period of time to bring this story up, hoping that the national news sources will pick up on this absurd violation of our National sovereignty and misuse of our tax money... yet not a peep has been heard to my knowledge.

It is estimated that $4 million has been spent on Mexican kids just in Roma, Texas, alone. And no one really even knows how much has been thrown down the rat hole in other Texas border towns, not to mentions similar towns in other border states.

News Channel 5 reported on the 6th of September that these Mexican kids are getting a free education from US taxpayers because the county schools do not have very stringent residency requirements.

Even more ridiculously, school administrators report that they aren't even allowed to ask if a student is a U.S. citizen before admitting them to class.

An estimated 650 kids from Mexico are going to public school in Roma. They come to America for a better education. The annual cost of an education is nearly $7,000 a student, which works out to $4,500,000 spent on Mexican students of your tax dollars spent. That's in Roma alone.

The truth is, no one knows the actual money being spent, because no one is actually keeping track. The reason? Parents only have to prove U.S. residency once. After that, the student is set until they graduate.

Proving residency is as simple as providing a Roma address.

Here is the reason why this travesty of the constitution is allowed...

Administrators say American students don't "do without" because of students from Mexico. They tell us the district gets state and federal funding for every student, even those from across the border.

YEP!!! Money. It is all about the money. I bet you that if it were not for the illegals, those school would have to close due to low attendance by citizens. Now that it does not seem to matter what country these kids come from, they can get all kinds of money to come in to their coffers.
