Thoughts From An English Teacher On Illegal Immigration

This is an email I received and thought it was worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This English teacher has phrased it the best I’ve seen yet.

Tomatoes and Cheap Labor
Cheap Tomatoes?

This should make everyone think, whether you are 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”(whores) 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, that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried aboutpolitical 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.

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 laboris a myth, a farce,  and a lie. There is no such thing as  “cheaplabor.”

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) healthcare.

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? YEAH RIGHT!

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. Immigration legislation is to be considered in 2010. This is important to working Americans, our economy and our American culture and heritage
