    The only people that aren't Immigrants to this Land were the NATIVE Americans, MORON. Everyone else came from somewhere else.

    Most Americans, in FACT (DON'T LIKE THOSE?) are 4 or 5 generations from FOREIGN ANCESTORS.

    Brain, much?

    Most of our ancestors came to the United States LEGALLY, via whatever LEGAL immigration laws were in place at the time.

    Do you not understand the difference between LEGAL and ILLEGAL "immigration"? Do you believe in the sovereignty of the United States? Do you believe that countries should have defined borders?

    You're such a SMART ASS, I doubt you can answer my simple questions. I fully expect you to come back with some cheesy sophomoric reply.

    Since you're such a smart ass, maybe you can point out where ILLEGAL was even brought into the conversation................cuz from where I'm sitting, he said MEXICANS, not ILLEGAL Mexicans, SMART ASS.

    I wonder how many Irish, or Italian, or Chinese immigrants (legal or not) were eligible for in-state tuition:

    Essentially, every excuse, including being ILLEGAL, has been removed as obsticles to Mexican scholastic achievement, yet "about 41 percent of all Mexicans between ages 16 and 19 in the city have dropped out of school, according to census data."

    Why?

    Here is the non-PC POV: 50% of Mexicans between ages 16 and 19 are females; At LEAST 41% of them become pregnate and choose to get married (or not), but either way, they drop out as mothers.

    Obviously, the OTHER 50% of Mexicans are male, and come from a culture that has little or no use for education beyond 9th grade (the last year of the Mexican basic compulsory education system). In Mexico, "High School" means "College Preparatory School." Frankly this is an exceedingly sensible route given the number of kids whose brains simply rot away in our absurd system.

    Perhaps the NYT would do well to help facilitate changes in labor laws that would allow 15-18 year olds to find gainful employment rather the blithering away about an "unsettling crisis."
