I don't see why someone shouldn't be allowed to have a say in what happens with their childrens education

Illegal-immigrants do not belong voting period.

Just my opinion.

I'm confused, what can't you do if you aren't legal? Do you not have to be legal to enroll your kids into school?

Illegal immigrants can have children can't they?

Yes, but these enrolled children, were they born here? That's what I was wondering?

It doesn't matter if the children are born here or not.

If people are here illegally, they have no business voting.

Dread, what about legal folks who just aren't citizens yet? Surely they should be able to vote. After all, they're affected by the policies of the government and (unless I'm wrong) pay taxes.

Well this is what I'm trying to figure out. How do you enroll your child without being legal.

This is a bad idea. I don't like the idea of someone who hops a fence and runs into the States has the exact same priviledges as someone who legally applies for landed immigrant status and takes the time, sacrifices the money because they truly want to go to live and work in America.

That is a noble thing. Jumping a fence, running for your life, circumventing the system and hiding out is not. That's a waste of taxpayer dollars and cheats the honest people who come to America legally.

It's a dumb idea and it sets a precedent. Soon illegal immigrants will be demanding a vote for Mayor, Governor, Congress...eventually it will be President. That's bad. This is a stupid idea and sets us down a bad road that we really don't want to be going down.

Legal immigrants...that's a whole other story. I don't support them being able to vote, but I won't get into that one.

sounds to me like the politicians are just looking for a whole new group to tell their lies to.... all the legal residents of San Fran are apparently fed up & won't listen anymore. and folks who don't listen are folks who don't vote, so - solution?: create a brand new demographic to make your empty promises to. you may not win anymore friends after you've let them down, but by then you'll already be voted into office and that's all that REALLY matters, isn't it?

to address the issue though, if you're concerned about what's happening in your child's education (for instance) and you have moved your residence to the United States of America - do the right damn thing & become a legal citizen, then vote to your heart's content.
