For some Texas schools, demographic future is now .
The Texas Tribune ^ | August 31, 2012 | Morgan Smith

Certain characteristics set the Laredo Independent School District apart from most districts in the state.

Its western boundary aligns directly with the Mexican border. Nearly all its students are poor, and nearly all are Hispanic. Most rely on the school to provide two meals a day. On the first day of school this week, some showed up without shoes or without parents accompanying them.

“It’s hard to work on teaching them about reading and writing and math when they haven’t eaten. It’s hard to really welcome them into their class with their textbooks and their lockers when they don’t have on shoes,” said Marcus Nelson, the Laredo superintendent, who said the district solicited donations of shoes and dress-code appropriate clothes all summer to prepare for the new school year.

some showed up without shoes or without parents accompanying them,you would think child protective services would of been called to investigate child endangerment, child abuse, child neglect. To be PC they do not want those here illegally to answer to why kids are showing up without shoes or without parents accompanying them ??

Because they are walking across the border to the Texas schools from Mexico. Happens every day along the border.

American taxpayers. Doing the jobs the Mexican government doesn’t want to do. Educating their kids.

We are going broke feeding and educating Mexico’s children because the Supreme Court decreed that this is the responsibility of the border states. Talk about a punishment.

One of my friends teaches school in rural Nevada. Free lunch was expanded to free breakfast. This year they are starting free dinner. The school system, with federal grant money, is providing these kids with three hots a day. They might as well build a dormitory and make it a boarding school.

The obvious question is how many are illegal aliens?

I would suspect that it would be easier to count how many have parents that are legal U.S. citizens.

By 2050, the number of Texas public school students is expected to swell to nine million from roughly five million now, and nearly two-thirds will be Hispanic

The overall percentage of white students will drop by half to about 15 percent.

wow...

I am shocked Mexico offers free school, free healthcare and the wealth of corrupt, ocialistic, crony capitalism. Why would they come to this awful place.

A child who shows up without shoes or parents should be taken into protective care by social services.

period.

all govt benefits (including tax refunds) to their “parents” should stop or be deposited into an court-mandated escrow account for the child’s needs, until it is determined how the parent is providing for the child.

foster homrs and orphansges are better than the “homes” some of these children endure.

“By 2050, the number of Texas public school students is expected to swell to nine million from roughly five million now, and nearly two-thirds will be Hispanic”

This is happening NOW, across the country, and “2050” is just tossed out there so white people think they have time to “do something about it”. Blacks learned the hard way when Hispanics officially passed them in 2000 (ten years earlier than projected); whites will learn the same lesson (and long before 2050). The unfettered immigration is the only reason Obama has a prayer of winning; there are not enough unassimilated blacks, homosexuals, and public school teachers to garner him 25% of the vote otherwise.

Nothing is more ridiculous than whites complaining about all of the immigrants while refusing to breed themselves; raising “his and hers” puppies ain’t the same.

We have the free breakfast and lunch programs on our welfare reservations here in NJ; someone told me they were federal, not state, programs.

You’re right about making them boarding schools; when you add in before- and after-care programs, these children are little more than monthly paychecks to their “parents”...

“We are going broke feeding and educating Mexico’s children because the Supreme Court decreed that this is the responsibility of the border states.”

Years ago my town paid an investigator to get on buses in the neighboring town and ride them to our high school each day; as the students filed into school he would take any students who had already been on the bus in the neighboring town to the office because they didn’t belong in our schools (we’re very close to Newark NJ, where the schools are a mess). After a few cases where parents were successfully sued for tuition, somebody must have realized there were federal funds involved per student (more lucrative than suing for tuition) and the practice ceased.

Now our public high school looks like one from Newark’s Latin quarter (though to be fair an increasingly large part of my town itself looks like it is in Peru). Taxpayers (individual and businesses) flee, and the municipalities crumble.

Just spent 4 days riding in West Texas and New Mexico. While I loved the scenery and solitude every time I stopped for gas or to eat it was invariably Mexican owned and/or run. Dirty, poor service, broken toilets, no TP, no hand towels, etc, etc..... and since I only speak English I couldn't even complain.

A snapshot of our coming 3rd World America.

I agree. It’s also why I don’t buy some of the analogies about the political climate today to the climate of the nation in 1980. The demographics are against us and if pointing it out makes me a racist, then so be it.

As Pat Buchanan aptly wrote just recently......the days of a 49 state blow out are over.

Oh yeah.......lock & load too.

Oh boy! Free food at school and free food at home. Ain’t the welfare life great?

I won’t list the other goodies of the welfare system such as free medical care since every time I think about free money from my working 7 days a week 14 hours a day at my business just to live a decent life while providing for the bums of our society who are too lazy to work.

It's as ridiculous as your understanding of the situation.

It may come as a surprise to you, but it cost tens of thousands to have kids and raise kids.

Millions of Americans have lost their health insurance or it's been reduced to worthlessness.

Compounded by the fact, millions have lost their jobs, businesses, careers and have little or no money, and those young people working are working at 1990s wages with no health insurance. It cost big money to have kids, raise a family and why whites are no longer able to get by.

Ya see your government provides millions of illegals prizes, freebies, food stamps, coupons and welfare to illegals and don't forget millions of them are having babies, free of charge.

All while the tax payers who are now on their knees, and forced to pay their bills, healthcare etc.

Why young whites are not having kids, raising families is not too complex.

Buchanan is brilliant, but was “borked/palined” by the same forces both in his party and outside who want to destroy our way of life.

They are succeeding beyond their wildest imaginations.

“It’s as ridiculous as your understanding of the situation.”

How are illegal aliens and the multi-generational unassimilated having children here? What magic do they have that whites don’t? I see it much more clearly than you do; whites are making a choice for present comfort (if you could even call it that in today’s economy) over a tomorrow peopled by their offspring. Americans are foregoing the tax deductions that come with children to instead pay a higher income tax rate to pay for children of some who wouldn’t dream of ever getting a job. Welfare reform was pushed because white girls started breeding like the welfare queens (and couldn’t be denied the same monthly payments for them); the punitive treatment of the white fathers ended that growth in births fairly quickly.

I have children; I know what sacrifices are entailed, and have no patience for Americans with health insurance policies for their pets complaining about poor and/or illegal people breeding. They are inheriting the earth (and our country).

Traditionally, the first person listed on the response is who the post is directed to. That wasn't you.

You were included as it was thought you might be interested.

You didn’t say anything that I don’t already agree with.

Great!

How does a 25 year old without a job do it?

I’d rather be poor and fruitful (I’m both) than accept that view. That 25 year old making $9 per hour is paying for the kids of the non-working 25 year-old.

When enough whites played the game, welfare was reformed. Do it again...

Ok. To be honest, I find the format of this forum to be mildly confusing at times. The first year I came here was from the Drudgereport website and didn’t realize that whole time it wasn’t even directing me to the “homepage”. I had been missing like 75% of the information here. Laughable but true.

No doubt, they don't want to get their shoes wet -- so barefoot makes sense...
