Dallas school board wants to hire illegal aliens; LULAC connection

Dallas Independent School District trustee Joe May wants to hire bilingual teachers who are here illegally. And, some other members of the DISD board think it's a good idea, just as long as it's handled delicately.

On the one hand, it would be good if they went through with this and then the feds stepped in and arrested them.

But, rather than waiting for that to happen, I'd suggest supporting a recall effort for all the board members who aren't vehemently opposed to this. Based on the news reports, it doesn't seem like any of them are:
Some Dallas Independent School District trustees said they look forward to discussing the issue while others are treading cautiously. The district's attorneys will also participate in the discussion at today's meeting.

"I'm open to listening to the legal points they might make," trustee Hollis Brashear said. "But I don't know if we can discuss something that involves not complying with U.S. law."

Trustee Jerome Garza said it's an interesting topic that should be discussed.

"We as trustees can no longer solve problems like we did 10 years ago," Mr. Garza said. "We have to be innovative."

...DISD Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said Mr. May's kind of grass-roots effort is how laws are changed. He said the hiring proposal is something he could support as long as it's done legally.

Dr. Hinojosa said he empathizes with young children who enter the U.S. illegally with their parents and find their job prospects limited in adulthood.

"It wasn't their fault they were brought here," Dr. Hinojosa said. "Their parents brought them."

...But Joe Campos, executive manager of the League of United Latin American Citizens, said DISD should push to get the residency requirement waived.

"They can be good productive citizens," Mr. Campos said. "Why not give them the opportunity?"

Mr. May believes it's time to change laws to address illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. for years.

"They're basically American people when you get down to it," he said.
What I'm wondering is whether May is an American or something else. Note that he was behind the vote requiring administrators to learn Spanish: "Responding to Dallas giving in to racial power".

And, from Joe May's bio:
Mr. May is a business opportunity specialist with the U.S. Small Business Administration, where he has been employed since 1980... From 1973 to 1980, Mr. May worked as an investigator for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission... Mr. May's history of community service in the Dallas community includes two terms as president of the League of United Latin American Citizens and as board member of Operation SER-Jobs for Progress.
The LULAC connection explains so much, doesn't it? Hopefully someone will start a recall campaign before he does any more damage.

Please call Superintendent Hinojosa at (972) 925-3700. You can contact the board here. UPDATE: This article has this drole bit:
One board member asked about possible penalties if the board were to hire illegal immigrants, NBC 5 reported. The board's attorney said the penalty would be a sentence up to six months in federal prison.


I have a relative who was born and raised in Texas. She is 50 years old and has lived in Dallas, Corpus Cristi, Austin (and other places that I can't remember). She tells me that everybody in Texas is an illegal alien. In order for the Dallas School District to hire somebody they classify as an "illegal alien," they would have to hire somebody from Idaho.

This is the logic and argument you can expect from President Bush and his supporters in their open borders/mass amnesty program, "They have been in the country so long that they are practically American...". So that's US citizenship on the cheap huh? Illegally enter, illegally stay and illegally work, and then demand citizenship and equal rights.

Odd that patriotic Americans are willing to die defending America and its precious citizenship while oters are willing to give it away and criminals (illegal immigrtion is a crime) demand it as a Mexican birth right. Holy Moly!
