Rep. Jason Chaffetz takes us inside his recent tour of the Arizona border and what he hopes to achieve in immigration reform

Inundated with third world children even their parents won’t educate.
Day DREAMers. Come to the U.S. during the day and home to Mexico at night. The ‘RATS gotta be lovin’ this.
Of course, this was “through no fault of their own”.
Guess preparing for jobs Americans wont do.
He ought to look into all the welfare money mailed to P.O. boxes in the border towns who are rented by Mexicans.
I guess the U.S. needs the box rental income, otherwise they’d be available only to our citizens.
Cry me a rio.
The experience around here is “speak Spanish, pay for my medical, give me a scholarship and then maybe we’ll see if I don’t call you a gringo racist. and don’t make me recite that stupid pledge of allegiance. We don’t need no stinkin’. . .”
And THAT’S just to the U.S. Vets and their kids who pay full tuition.
guess he is a democrat.
I call fake anecdote story and not to be trusted.
I’m not sure that I fully understand this, but if those poor Mexican children are coming to our public schools, they would have a SERIOUS claim of FRAUD - being that the last thing they’re getting is an education.
Hopefully their parents, like most non-American born parents, are able to figure this out and save their kids from a WORTHLESS LIFE.
Documentation File on the harmful impact of the Counterculture of Obamanation on America.
Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, first Inaugural quote: I want to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA!
This is no surprise. I saw it on 60 Minutes many years ago.
Buses met them at the border to take them to public schools.
It’s known as the full employment program for union teachers.
When you don’t have enough students to justify keeping all those teachers, don’t lay off the teachers, just import some pupils. It goes on all along the Texas border.
What a country!
our national anthem should changed to
We are the world!
Not only that these children did this...THEY ARE EDUCATED BY THE LEFT AND ALL HISTORY THEY LEARN WILL BE HATE AMERICA! THAT IS THE OTHER REAL CRIME HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you serious? Children from Mexico have been crossing the border to go to school in the US for decades, every border state allows this.
Most are US citizens, even though they live in Mexico, as do their parents. Mama made sure she was in US in time to deliver them to get that gift that keeps giving. The pregnant women show up at US hospitals in labor, little to no prenatal care- lie to the hospital staff or don’t know about their medical issues. If anything at all goes wrong there are ambulance chasing lawyers that lurk in hospitals on the border to sue everyone in sight. It is known as “winning the lottery” in Mexico. Most hospitals on the border either closed or quit delivering babies years ago since they could not stay afloat with unpaid bills and lawsuits.
The child is a US citizen at birth and so eligible for any and all goodies any time they choose to collect. It may sound like a fake story, or even crazy but absolutely 100% true. One of the many border issues that needs to be solved. Citizenship by birth is the biggest rip off of US taxpayers and needs to end.
We need to make them give testimony after watching this video and ask them which nation they are demanding dollars to educate.
School choice vouchers following U.S. children to schools of their parents' choice, no matter the income of the family. Why should misdle and higher income children be squeezed into failing, violent schools because they make too much money, just not enough to afford private schools.
As NEA refuses to shape up, give tax deductions to families that have income, vouchers to those on assistance and leave NEA out of the equation.
Tammy8, you got it right! I live in a border county and it has been happening here for decades.
This has been going on for many, many years!
Sorry, but downloading their brood over the borderdoes NOT make one a citizen; just as those that can’t read the full 2nd Amendment, the 14th states “...and subject to the jurisdiction thereof”. Meaning, they are ILLEGAL / criminals.
So tired of the language being perverted and the Constitution belittled. Either the words mean what they say, or the document is garbage.
It’s true. They’ve been doing it forever. Free US education started eons ago. Isn’t it nice of US border property taxpayers to foot the bill for the expense of the schools, teachers’ salaries and free breakfasts and lunches?
I believe it because the same thing happened in San Diego County years ago, when I lived there. An investigative reporter taped the bus going to the border every morning to pick up the kids and take them to school, then take them back to the border after school. It was a very big scandal. I moved away shortly after that, so I don’t know if the public outrage put an end to it there or not...hopefully, it did!
Near me the school bus actually crossed the border and went up and down the streets of the town in Mexico to pick up/drop off the children in Mexico that go to school here. Just a few years ago it was decided that there was too much liability risk to do that so now the children cross the border and catch the bus on this side. There was even an incident several years ago where a boy from Mexico somehow got a gun to the middle school and shot a girl, threatened the principal. There was an outcry then, but things haven’t changed.
