Best Answer

Yes. Specially the children who are blameless for being here illegally since their parents or relatives brought them here. They (the children) did not have a choice. i agree, of course they should. i am a teacher and believe all children deserve an education. Answer . Definatly not. Why should the local taxpayers have to support the education costs of other peoples children who pay NOTHING. This causes a strain on the resources that should be going to teach the children of those that are paying for it. This is why emergency rooms and hospitals are closing up all over the U.S.

Should Illegal Immigrants Be Deported?

Yes, illegal immigrants should be deported because they didn't have respect for the country they illegally entered. It is also an affront to any person who took the time and effort to enter legally. Send them back. They should at least have the respect to immigrate the right way. The illegal immigrants are breaking the "law". They shouldn't be here. Illegal immigrants don't pay taxes and our citizens have difficulties in getting jobs because of the illegal immigrants. It doesn't matter how hard illegal immigrants work or how bad they have it in their own country, or how many loved ones would be hurt by their deportaion. They are committing a crime and should be punished and deported.

Why should children of illegal immigrants be educated?

Illegal immigrant children should be educated because they should not be blamed for the actions there parents have done. They should be able to receive the same education Americans do because they are not the one to blame. As an American you have two choices in where you decide your tax money should go to, and that is educated more illegal immigrants or having to support the social service and prison system. if these innocent children do not receive an education they will become illiterate criminals in our society. I am an eight grader who attends Mother Caroline Academy, an all-girls Catholic School, and i have family that immigrated to the U.S. and became citizens and because they did become citizens i stand before you today and am able to provide you with this information and be very well educated and proud to say that i am a Hispanic that supports Illegal immigrant children getting an education. These children could learn to read, write and speak English if we all give to them. If these children become educated, they will want to open businesses which means that they have to hire American citizens to work for them. So they will be giving back to American !! As a young Latina I stand proud and am glad to say I a fourteen year old Dominican named Ashley Mejia answered this question that is such a huge topic in America and did not have a answer for it. I hope i changed the way some Americans may think about Illegal immigrant children not receiving an education. Answer: Children of illegal immigrants are juvenile criminals just as their parents are criminals, they entered this country by illegal means and should not be afforded the rights to education as are Legal immigrants and natural born citizens.. (if illegal immigrants enter this country and then have a child, then yes that child should be educated because by law that child is a citizen as they are born in the USA.) However their parents remain illegal immigrant (criminals) "If these children become educated, they will want to open businesses which means that they have to hire American citizens to work for them. So they will be giving back to American" These Children that entered the US illegally with their parents grow up to be illegal immigrants they are not citizens, therefor they will not open any business, nor hire American workers, nor will they give back to America... The demands on our society by the illegal immigrants are far more than their contributions to our society. US Tax Payers are already supporting enough illegal immigrants by providing welfare, housing, healthcare for illegal criminals they should not be asked to foot the bill to educate illegal children which are in essence juvenile criminals wanted by the federal authorities..
