A WSJ Refugee Meets A Patriot Telemarketer
From: A Public School Parent
Reading your Education and Immigration piece this morning was like having a huge light turned on. Of course every alarmed non-English speaking child introduced into a class room means a direct transfer of a teacher's time and energy from the native English speakers there—particularly since what the teacher will be trying to teach, the American children already know.
Can there be any more direct example of the cost to US citizens of immigration?
I sort of sensed this before. But seeing it in cold pixels brought it home. And I acted!
All us parents now have access to the e-mail addresses of teachers and school principals. I went further. I googled on my District's School Board name, and yes! there was a web site, with email addresses of the Board Members. In less than 30 minutes, I had sent off 20 emails, politely asking the addressees to read the article and tell me their opinion on the impact of immigration on our school district.
Most will be too lazy or frightened to respond. The Politically Correct will no doubt have heart attacks (how sad). But here and there, illumination will occur.
So I urge VDARE.COM readers to do the same. Put in half an hour this weekend! As the man said:
"If not now, when? If not you, who?"
