CSU Says Tijuana Off Limits Until State Department Changes Warning

Wow talk about hitting the nail on the head!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is Congressman Tom Mc Clintock's reply to the ridiculous way the
president of Mexico ranted about Arizona's adoption of the federal law
regarding illegal immigration. Sadly, many of the incumbents including
Napolitano cheered the Mexican president on as he was bashing our great
nation. Take about 5 minutes to hear Mc Clintock's reply and be amazed. If
he ever makes it to the national scene...I guarantee he has my vote!!

If the video does not start, Google this,. "Response to President Calderon"

Forward this to everyone you know.

San Diego School Year To End One Week Early Next Year

Please, please read this. I know from experience that some parts are honest truth. I hope you pass it on. ML

Cheap Tomatoes

THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON'T CARE.

This English teacher has phrased it
the best I've seen yet.
Tomatoes and Cheap Labor

CHEAP TOMATOES?
This should make everyone think, be you're 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.

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 the unwed 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.

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 ..

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 then
3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas"((inappropriate term)) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical, free education, free food, free day care etc., etc, etc. Is
it any wonder they feel entitled to not only 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 standards of education in our schools,
overcrowding, new diseases. For me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans, We need to wake up.

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: It involves an American
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.

Second Part.

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. If qualified for SSI they can qualify
for Medicaid. 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.

Cheap labor? NO IT'S NOT!

THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS
OF EITHER PARTY. 'AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON'T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD
REPLACE THEM .

Please pass this on to as many as possible.
