A California Teacher Talks about Illegal Aliens

This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent…

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


“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. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

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. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

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. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

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, daycare 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 etc., etc, etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.

We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A 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 “politically 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 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. Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. 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.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean up.

Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people!

    I am voting so much for these kids to have second hand citizenships, their parents brought them here illegally so they should have no rights in this country,

  4. Carolyne Wilkes Says:


    Why do you think the government is doing this to it citizenry (rewarding
    bad behavior to all these people having children that they cannot or
    will not support) giving them food stamps, section 8 housing, free lunches
    and breakfast at school (even in the summer – this is crazy) and the
    stupidess of all– the earned income tax credit (47% of the nation pay no
    income tax – the country is broke – makes no sense)?

  5. Carolyne Wilkes Says:

    I heard about your letter on the Neal Boortz radio show. He read it, so I looked you up myself. Would you be interested in running for Congress? – we need you. Our whole country has gone to pot. I worked at Walmart for 7 years and could not believe the food stamps, wic, earned income and now have found out that 47% of the nation pay no income tax. I have never seen so many irresponsible people in my 67 years (my generation had none of these programs and we all made it fine.) What is wrong with our politicians rewarding law breakers (illegals) and all the deadbeat natural bornes here?

    • lockdoc1 Says:

      Thanks for reading and for your comments. It’s not my letter, I just posted it. I do believe in what she said however. What is happening in California is happening all over this country, and “we the people” need to get our leaders to wake up and smell the coffee before the liberals give it all to the illegals.

      I’m flattered that you would want me to run for Congress, but I think there are many people who are better qualified for that position than I am. However, I don’t think I could do any worse than the boneheads that are in office now! I am a true American patriot that believes in the Christian ideals that this country is founded on, and we must return to those roots in order to get this country back on track.

    Hi there may I reference some of the material from this blog if I link back to you?

    I am glad I’m not the only one that is aware of the illegal aliens and all the things they get for nothing. I have the solution to the problem; Call all soldiers back from Iraq. Send all the illegal aliens to Iraq and let them fight for our country, then they can become citizens of the US. The ones that won’t, send them back to Mexico.
