The problem is NOT IMMIGRANTS, but regulation and GOVERNMENT excess are throttling business and individual initiative
U.S. citizen or not, Texas valedictorians should make us proud
We need more immigrants, and less government clogging up the economy.
"McKinney Boyd High School valedictorian Larissa Martinez had a 4.95 GPA and took 17 AP classes. Soon, she’s heading to Yale on a full scholarship. In her graduation speech, Larissa declared, “I am one of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the shadows of the United States.” Her speech received a well-deserved standing ovation."
The only reason to kick her out is that she is smarter than your kid, and will take her posh job! Too bad.
"Down in Austin, Mayte Lara Ibarra recently graduated from Crockett High School. She was the valedictorian, with a 4.5 GPA, and graduated with 13 cords and medals. At her graduation June 3, before giving her valedictorian speech, she introduced the Pledge of Allegiance and the national anthem. Soon, she’ll be headed to my alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin, on a full-ride scholarship."
Boy howdy, do I see a trend here?
You think I jest? No!
"Some criticized her for making less room available at UT for citizens:
@maytelara29 So you stole the spot of a legal citizen and the possible scholarship for a legal citizen?"
See, US citizens are all about the meritocracy until the damn beaners are smarter than our kids then, "Oh my God, you're stealing our scholarships." You are a loser, to steal a Trumpism. We need these kids, and if yours can cut the mustard, too effen bad!
"Not only should Texans be proud of Mayte, we should be proud to live in one of 17 states that allow unauthorized students to receive in-state tuition.
Texas has a lot of things it needs to fix, but its version of the DREAM Act is not one of them. We can be proud that Texas welcomes talented students like Mayte, regardless of where they happen to have been born.
Summoning the spirit of Davy Crockett, after whom her high school was named, Mayte Lara Ibarra should tell her critics that they can go to hell, but she’s going to Texas."
Raise the bar, don't lower it. If that means yours have go work harder, so be it, they live pampered lives already, yes all of them, even America's poor live better than the lower class in Europe and the middle class for nearly everywhere outside of the first world.
