Do Democrats really care about violence or our schools?

Pratt on TexasI’ve commented on Texas Democrats, from statehouse to congressional candidates, who act as if funding our enhanced security at the Mexican border is a waste by almost universally claiming that if elected they would take the money away from border security and spend it on schools.

A truly informed reporter along the way would have questioned these Democrats by pointing out that the flood of illegal aliens into Texas is behind the massive student growth in most of our public schools.

The illegal alien waves Democrats want to ignore is what has most put pressure on public schools by increasing costs heavily…

The illegal alien waves Democrats want to ignore is what has most put pressure on public schools by increasing costs heavily through student growth without bringing immediate tax base increases to pay for such. This is because most all illegal aliens are poor and remain so for many years.

And then you have Democrats grandstanding before any camera they can find expressing their anger and concern over so-called “gun violence” but choosing to ignore the so-called “gun violence” and much more other violence and inhumane treatment such as human smuggling, sex trafficking, rape, robbery, beatings, hostage taking, blackmail, and on and on allowed by our porous border with Mexico.

Near Brownsville, Border Patrol agents came under attack by drug smugglers a few days ago.

Violence is unquestionably increased by a porous border and public schools made poorer by the influx of people who are not supposed be here.

Then you have this story reported by Breitbart Texas: “Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Sector stopped sex offenders and gang members from making their way to their U.S. destinations over the weekend. During a four-day period, agents arrested four child molesters and three gang members after they illegally crossed the border. The arrests include fugitives who fled the country to avoid prosecution and previously deported criminal aliens.”

Violence is unquestionably increased by a porous border and public schools made poorer by the influx of people who are not supposed be here. So do Texas Democrats actually care about violence or our schools?

What do you think?...
