The same policy has practically bankrupted the Dallas Independent School District. I hope Martinez will weigh in on this. I'll be damned if our tax dollars should go to educate the children of people who are here illegally. Those who think this is a selfish motive should create the "New Mexican's Educational Guilt Relief Fund" and make donations according to their personal level of guilt. I guess this means I won't be making any donations.
