“If we’re going to do this for Ashleigh, there needs to be a policy change,” Leigh Allison said.

GRAPEVINE — While the rest of her fifth-grade class was taking Spanish classes mandated by the Grapevine-Colleyville school district curriculum, Ashleigh Allison sat in the Timberline Elementary School library writing a report about France.Ashleigh and her mother, Leigh Allison, say teaching elementary school Spanish only makes life easier for Hispanic immigrants in the community who do not learn or speak English. And Ashleigh shouldn’t be forced to conform, they say.”She wants to be that one voice that forces them to learn English,” Allison said. “We’re not going to turn America into a bilingual country to accommodate you.”

National debate

The Allisons’ stance reflects a larger national debate about immigration and the rising number of Spanish speakers in the United States.

“On the one hand, we’re all for teaching foreign languages,” said K.C. McAlpin, executive director of Virginia-based ProEnglish, which works to preserve English as the common language of the U.S.

“But it would be naive to think that the country does not face the growing threat of bilingualism because of the massive influx of mostly Spanish-speaking immigrants. They’re coming in faster than the country can absorb them.”

Language of choice

Texas’ curriculum requires a school district to offer, “to the extent possible, languages other than English” for elementary- and middle school-age children.

Most districts offer some level of language instruction, said Monica Martinez, curriculum director with the Texas Education Agency. And for most, Spanish is the language of choice. It’s easier to learn and speak than many other languages, and school districts can hire more experienced Spanish teachers than teachers of other languages.

“But it could be French. It could be American Sign Language,” Martinez said. “It’s left to local district discretion to determine what they offer.”

‘Best for kids’

Grapevine-Colleyville elementary students must take Spanish two days a week in nine-week rotations with art classes. It has been a part of the district’s curriculum for 15 years, said district spokeswoman Megan Overman.

“The whole intent is to give students a foundation that we believe broadens their experiences and prepares them for success in our diverse world,” Overman said. “You’re not going to get language acquisition out of elementary Spanish.”

Overman said there has been “little or no objection” to the curriculum from parents or the community. “Our goal is to try to do what we believe is best for kids,” she said.

Views of bilingualism

McAlpin said he worries that in the long run, forcing Spanish on students, and in effect promoting bilingualism, will harm the country.

“Every place in the world where societies have been divided about language, there have been conflicts that many times lead to violence or antagonism that we have so far been able to avoid in this country,” he said. “Why break the successful mold of the melting pot?”

Rudy Rodriguez, retired director of the bilingual education program at the University of North Texas, said exposure to foreign languages at an early age helps children become more comfortable interacting with people from other countries and cultures.

He also said that there are benefits to the “bilingual brain” and that learning a second language actually improves a child’s brain function.

“It is a wonderful, enriching experience for children to have the opportunity to learn a language other than English,” he said. “We’re moving very rapidly into a global economy where boundaries between countries are becoming less distinct.”

Allison said she and her daughter aren’t anti-immigration. They are pro-English language for immigrants.

“This is not saying, you cannot speak your native tongue,” Allison said. “Grasp your tradition and your culture. But when you are outside your front door, you must speak English. We have to understand you.”

Compromise

Ashleigh said she knew the day that she enrolled at Timberline that she didn’t want to take the required Spanish classes.

“There was a lot of Spanish kids and not a lot of other kinds of kids,” she said.

Her mother said: “We were very much the minority. She couldn’t understand anybody and really felt isolated.”

The percentage of Hispanic students at Timberline has increased from 13 percent in 1996 to 54 percent of the school’s 706 students last school year.

At the beginning of November, Allison e-mailed the counselor saying she was “not interested” in Ashleigh’s taking Spanish. Timberline Principal Cody Spielmann replied that Spanish is required by the curriculum and that there were no other options.

“Ashleigh feels the course would be a waste of her time since she has no aspirations in the future to have a career requiring bilingual talents,” Allison wrote to the principal, “nor does she feel compelled to accommodate those who live in our country who refuse to learn the primary and current native tongue of English.”

Allison wanted her daughter to be allowed to study in the library or to take a different foreign language. Allison then appealed to district administrators but got the same response: Ashleigh had to go to class.

Allison kept her daughter out of Spanish class for three weeks, sending her to school an hour late twice a week with a note stating that she was absent because of a “moral objection” to the class.

At the end of December, Allison filed a grievance with the Grapevine-Colleyville school board. But in a pre-hearing meeting, she and Deputy Superintendent Jim Chadwell reached a compromise to allow Ashleigh to study in the library and write a report on a country of her choice.

She learned about the government and food of France and tried to teach herself some common French phrases, but without a teacher, the language is difficult to master. “I was kind of bored because there wasn’t anybody else there,” she said.

‘Policy change’

The curriculum rotation has moved from Spanish to art class at Timberline. But before the year is out, Ashleigh will be faced with the same situation.

Does she plan to take Spanish then? Absolutely not.

Allison said she is scheduled to meet next week with Spielmann and other district administrators to hammer out a better plan for Ashleigh’s alternative class. Instruction in any other language would be acceptable, she said.

Allison suggests an online language course, such as Rosetta Stone. She’ll even pay for it. And she hopes that the discussion yields an option for other students who oppose learning Spanish.

“If we’re going to do this for Ashleigh, there needs to be a policy change,” Allison said.

Overman said the district is willing to work with parents to make decisions about educating their children. While parents shouldn’t expect an overhaul of the district’s world languages curriculum, the district will review it.

ILLEGAL ALIEN MIGRANTS: WHY HERE, WHY THEY STAY

By Frosty Wooldridge
In this third and final interview, Michael Folkerth’s book: “THE BIGGEST LIE EVER BELIEVED” exposes Frosty WooldridgeAmerica’s greatest crisis—unending growth.

Trying to corner Clinton, Obama, Romney and McCain into addressing America’s immigration invasion proves harder than arm wrestling an octopus! Trying to get our apathetic American public to force definitive answers from this presidential quartet proves tougher than bringing an Egyptian mummy back to life. Once the full impact of adding endless millions of people hits, the devastation to American society will make Hurricane Katrina look like a Sunday picnic. It’ll make Mount Saint Helens look like a puff of smoke from Humphrey Bogart’s cigarette. It’ll make Briteny Spears’ life resemble a “Father Knows Best” happy ending. What’s the big difference for our entire society? Immigration, both legal and illegal, will create carnage and consequences that affect every state forever.

In other words, before the Titanic hit the iceberg, all seemed well. Once it hit, everything changed for the worst.

Folkerth examines why our corporations demand unending immigration to force-feed growth. “Today we will once more work through the actual root cause of illegal immigration as it relates to the economy,” he said. “To avoid having to descend into the dismal science of conventional economics, we’ll apply my patented ‘Mikeronomics’ and take a shortcut to the truth.

“Consumer spending represents two-thirds of our domestic U.S. economy, and is responsible for some 62 percent of the jobs that have thus far, not gone off to China. The necessity of keeping such consumer spending whipped up to a brisk pace is well up in the red zone of the alert scale for those seeking reelection.

“And, since our economy is based on the impossible basis of ever increasing growth, the necessity of adding a few million new consumers to our buyers club from time to time becomes imperative. Here’s the rub. The current birthrate in the U.S. doesn’t get the consumption job done.

“No problem; we have the I.N.S., often thought to mean Immigration and Naturalization Service, but actually meaning “Instant Necessary Shoppers,” which allows 1.2 million foreign folks to join our club each and every year, legally.

“However, with all things ever expanding some years back we reached that unfortunate, but predicable, point where the birthrate and legal immigration combined didn’t trip the trigger.”

That’s when the brilliant, foghorn-leghorn rooster, alcoholic Senator Teddy Kennedy of Massachusetts dumped the 1965 Immigration Reform Act onto the American public. He raised immigration rates from a stable 175,000 annually to 1.1 to 1.5 million. That single bill drove consumption into high gear. Corporations busted unions and wages declined because millions of immigrants moved into the work place to undercut Americans. Soon, illegal aliens followed to work slave wages off the books. Result? Farmers and corporations raked-in unheard-of profits. Our economic engine roared with production, consumption, sales and pollution.

“We also reached the point where the good citizens of this country were reluctant that immigration continued at high numbers,” Folkerth said. “Therefore we had a conundrum. Congress doesn’t like conundrums. It forced them to either tell the American people that the false economy that they have come to love and enjoy was no longer an option, or let a few thousand illegal immigrants sneak in each night to reinvigorate the activity at the mall.

“Given the above choice and with election coming up, the decision for a person who is desperately seeking reelection becomes quite clear; never face south.

“We have noticed that nearly all politicians have denied the personal knowledge that 12 to 20 million illegals lived and worked our country. I remind you that these are the same politicians who are protecting you from terrorists sneaking into the country.

“If a federal or state politician says he or she didn’t know these folks were here, throw the bums out. If they did know it and didn’t tell us, throw the bums out.

“They all knew we had illegal immigration because it was encouraged. Allowing thousands of illegal people to invade the U.S. on a daily basis and remain here for years without any measure of enforcement against such activity, is encouragement; plain and simple.

“Imagine a consumption based society that is already teetering on the brink of recession due to a lack of consumer spending. Teetering may not be the correct word when our president and Congress are so desperate for Americans to spend money, that both agree to sending checks out to the good taxpayers (and non-taxpayers) to provide the money for that purpose.

“Continue to imagine that in the middle of this mess, 12 to 20 million of those consumers would leave overnight, due to being deported. Politicians imagine this event occurring all the time; it’s called a hideous nightmare.

“Now, given the above information, can you spell a m n e s t y? Your faithful representatives sure can. After all, if there is a fine, it’s not amnesty, it’s then spelled ‘collusion.’

“So what’s the answer? Should we just continue to increase population until the whole thing flies into a million pieces? Should we keep on expanding until our natural resources can no longer support us? Or should we work toward a sustainable economy that is not based on ever expanding population growth?

“Unfortunately, it is possible to add millions of people to these United States. However, have you ever seen pictures that exhibit the living conditions of the average people in China and India? A picture is worth a thousand words. That picture may well represent Middle America, just a few years down the road.”

To be certain, it’s not pretty.

Congress Poised to Give Tax Rebates to Illegal Aliens
Call Your Senators Now!

January 30, 2008

The economic stimulus package traveling through Congress right now does nothing to stop the IRS from issuing rebate checks to illegal aliens. Please call your Senators now and urge them to take action!

Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed H.R.5140, the economic stimulus package, by a vote of 385-35. As many of you have already learned from news outlets, the economic package includes tax rebates of $600 for individual taxpayers and $1,200 for couples. However, this package—thrown together within days—allows the IRS to send tax rebate checks to illegal aliens!

The issue stems from defining who is eligible for a tax rebate. In drafting H.R.5140, Congress left gaping loopholes. Section 101 excludes “nonresident aliens” from being eligible, but this is essentially meaningless as the IRS does not determine whether an individual is a “nonresident alien” based on his or her immigration status. Moreover, it does not address the eligibility of illegal aliens who send in tax returns using stolen or false social security numbers.

At a minimum, the IRS should be required to screen the numbers (whether individual taxpayer identification numbers (ITINs) or social security numbers (SSNs)) used to issue the checks to ensure they match the name of the taxpayer in question. If a name and number do not match, the IRS should be prohibited from issuing a tax rebate check. Senator John Ensign (R-NV) has filed an amendment to affect this change, but we do not know whether he will even be allowed to offer it.

H.R.5140 is now in the Senate and will go through the Senate Finance Committee this afternoon. From there, Senate staffers indicate it will go quickly to the floor. PLEASE TAKE ACTION NOW!

We urge all FAIR members, activists and friends to call their Senators now and urge them to fix the loopholes in H.R. 5140 that allow illegal aliens to get tax rebate checks. After calling your own Senators, please call the Senators who sit on the Finance Committee and urge them to take action too.

If anyone represents the spirit that infuses the new Mexican administration, it would have to be Juan Hernández.

A hybrid of two cultures, he is the first Mexican American to hold a Mexican Cabinet position, heading the presidential Office for Mexicans Abroad. The office, newly created by President Vicente Fox, seems tailor-made for Hernández, a trusted aide handpicked by the president to protect the rights of Mexican émigrés and their families, and, perhaps just as importantly, to reach out to the millions of Americans of Mexican ancestry.

HispanicOnline spoke with Hernández at length on the goals of his office and of the new Mexican order being forged by the government of Vicente Fox. Tops on Hernández’s agenda: legal status for migrant workers in the U.S., fair treatment for them and their families on both sides of the border, galvanizing employment opportunities at home to curb emigration, spurring Mexico-U.S. trade development, and forging stronger bonds with Mexican Americans, for starters.


“There are twenty million people, like myself, who have one foot in Mexico and one foot in the United States, and we’re very proud of it.”

The concept is simple. “There are twenty million people, like myself, who have one foot in Mexico and one foot in the United States, and we’re very proud of it,” he said. And it is this straddling of cultures, this symbiotic relationship, that, as Hernández sees it, must be cast in a new light and used for the benefit of both countries. “What we are trying to do, what this president is trying to do, is show that the twenty million Mexicans living in the United States are important to Mexico and are important to the United States,” he said.Hernández speaks in earnest. The role of these Mexicans living—and working—in the U.S. has emerged as the lynchpin of the Fox administration’s strategy to refashion Mexico into a true democracy, on a par with its North American neighbors and the European powers.

Not only does the new Mexico recognize the enormous financial import of the Mexican American community (individual remittances back home—nearly $10 billion annually—rank third behind tourism and oil export receipts as a major source of revenue): It is taking steps to harness the political and entrepreneurial savvy of Mexicans abroad to reverse the flow of migration, encourage direct investment, and spearhead political change at home and in the United States.

For Hernández, a Ph.D. in Mexican and English literature equally at home in both cultures, his role as point man for Fox’s ambitious plan is a natural fit.

Born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1955 to an American mother and a Mexican father, Hernández grew up in his father’s home state of Guanajuato. He led a life of privilege, measured not in material possessions, but in freedom: The freedom to move easily across the border without risk; the freedom to learn, to have access to the best Mexican and American schools; the freedom to implement his ideas. A freedom not shared by all Mexicans, he quickly learned, and which early on awakened in him a strong sense of social responsibility.

“Leaving my home to go to the United States really opened my eyes,” he said. “Seeing so many people having to live in the shadows as criminals for doing the same thing that I was doing, but I had a little piece of paper that said it was OK.

“Seeing the need, people dying at the border, people not having their health needs met in the United States, seeing the need of education of Mexicans living over there, and realizing that these are people who are fueling the economy, but no one would speak for them,” he underscored.

“And then suddenly I hear Vicente Fox talking about them being heroes, and immediately, of course, I felt a kin spirit in someone who motivated me and then empowered me to go to work for these wonderful people.”

It was to be a fateful alliance. In March 1996, Fox, newly elected governor of Guanajuato, already advocated a radical change in Mexican politics that would lead him, four years later, to a stunning electoral victory that ended 71 years of rule by the Institutional Revolutionary Party. Hernández, then director of the Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies at the University of Texas in Dallas, invited him to speak at the university. He also arranged a meeting with the Texas governor at the time, George W. Bush.

“The first conversation they had was related to migrants, to Mexicans abroad,” said Hernández. “Vicente Fox proposed to him that Texas and Guanajuato become partners in creating opportunities for Mexicans abroad and for the migrant-sending regions, as they call them.”


“There are several million Mexican people in the United States that are creating wealth for the United States and Mexico. These are all good people who have gone up there to work, they have found jobs, they are the builders of the country.”

That conversation, a scheduled five-minute meeting that stretched into 45, led to the creation of the Guanajuato Trade Office in Texas, a facility that Hernández initially directed and that serves as an “incubator for small and micro businesses from Guanajuato to do business in Texas” that is still operating today, Hernández said.Fox must have been impressed with the enterprising young professor, for, Hernández tells, as he was about to board his plane back to Guanajuato that day, the future president turned to him and asked: “Have you got any other ideas, Juan Hernández?”

“And I had written down four ideas, in case he asked, and so I said ‘Well, I sure do,’” Hernández recalled. “So he got back down off the plane, and there off the runway we went over ideas … and there on the spot he hired me to be his U.S. advisor and open up these types of trade [initiatives].” And so the Dallas professor became one of Fox’s most trusted allies, later joining Fox’s presidential campaign as his chief of staff and stumping for him among the Mexican communities in the U.S.

The groundwork during those years paid off; and with the election of George W. Bush in the United States, the understanding forged at that first meeting evolved into a “commitment for a partnership for progress” cemented when now presidents Bush and Fox met in February at Fox’s ranch in San Cristóbal. And Hernández, as in 1996, was there.

An articulate man who switches effortlessly from Spanish into English and back again, Hernández has embraced his task as cultural and political liaison, lobbying personally for increased labor rights, health benefits, and education for Mexicans in the U.S. “Texas just passed a law for the migrants; they can now go to the university and pay state tuition. It is the first state to open up,” he noted.

He travels often to the United States, visiting Mexican American communities throughout the U.S. at least once a week. Although he is now on leave from the Texas university system, he continues to speak once or twice a semester and is putting together a course on U.S.-Mexico relations. The author of seven books on literary and political subjects, he is currently working on a bilingual oral history of the Mexican emigrant experience to be titled Heroes: Mexican Migrants.


“We must not only have a free flow of goods and services, but also start working for a free flow of people.”

He argues passionately about the need to obtain legal status for all Mexican workers in the U.S., although he shuns the political vocabulary, preferring to stay away from what he calls “explosive terms” such as “guest worker” programs. “There are several million Mexican people in the United States that are creating wealth for the United States and Mexico. These are all good people who have gone up there to work, they have found jobs, they are the builders of the country.

“These individuals need to be legalized, they need to be able to come home and see their families and not have to cross a dangerous border; they need to be able to complain if the boss is not paying them for the amount of hours that they worked; they need to be able to have living conditions that are proper, with dignity; to have driver’s licenses; to use the banks in the United States. They need their dignity, instead of having to live like criminals.”

The U.S. urgently needs people to fill the several thousand new jobs available yearly in the United States, he added. “We need to find a win-win agreement between the two countries to provide people for those jobs,” he said.

In the meantime, the border remains a thorny issue. Just a few weeks ago, Hernández came under fire for appearing to endorse the distribution of first aid kits, quickly dubbed “survival kits,” to help illegal border crossers survive the dangers of the rugged frontier line. Not so, he said. While the government does distribute basic first aid kits to impoverished rural areas in seventeen states (not coincidentally the heaviest exporters of migrants), and has done so for the last ten years, the objective is not to encourage illegal emigration. As if to prove it, Hernández has just filmed a series of public-service videos, to be shown on the bus line that transports some 350,000 passengers a month to northern Mexico, near the U.S. border, exhorting Mexicans not to fall prey to smugglers or risk an illegal crossing, but to look for opportunities at home.

In typical fashion, he does the job himself, addressing his countrymen directly. The videos complement spots on national TV also warning of the dangers of crossing illegally, and are part of the most recent U.S.-Mexico agreement on migration reached in June following the deaths of fourteen illegal immigrants in the Arizona desert. “My conscience forces me to do all I can to save lives, even if it’s just one life,” he said.

He is also working side by side with Fox to ensure that Mexican émigrés, when they return to Mexico, are treated well on the Mexican side of the border-that they are not shaken down for bribes or harassed by unscrupulous officials, and that the families in Mexico of migrants in the U.S. have social security and health benefits.

Equally important is to create opportunities in Mexico so that people do not feel the need to leave, Hernández said. To achieve that, his office has put together a multi-pronged approach that includes incentives such as matching government subsidies, for Mexican American entrepreneurs who establish businesses in their home communities; and it is encouraging successful Mexicans abroad to “adopt” areas of great poverty, especially 90 micro-regions with a high rate of emigration to the United States. Known as the Proyecto Padrino, the program grew out of Hernández’s contact with over 500 hometown associations of Mexican Americans who were already providing aid to their churches and communities back home.

“It’s very exciting. We have gotten an incredible response,” said Hernández, who confesses that “the padrino idea came from successful Mexicans abroad; it was really not my idea.”

They are padrinos like Jaime Lucero, who slipped into the U.S. illegally in 1975 and found work in the kitchen of a New York restaurant. Twenty-five years later, he has his own clothing distribution company, Gold & Silver, Inc., and has now invested four million dollars in his home state of Puebla, money that will generate 7,000 new jobs in a new women’s clothing factory.

Then there is Eduardo Nájera, of the Dallas Mavericks, who has become a padrino for education. Through his efforts, Hernández said, companies that sponsor the NBA star are paying for 5,000 scholarships for students in these 90 micro-regions at the middle, high school, and university levels.

Hispanic American organizations are also linking up with Hernández’s office to sponsor his projects. The League of United Latin American Citizens has agreed to create a network of attorneys throughout the United States to defend the legal rights of migrants in the U.S., Hernández said. This will complement a migrants-rights office within the Mexican attorney general’s office to prosecute offenders on both sides of the border.

But a lot of these problems would simply disappear if there were simply more open policies in place, he said.

Hernández is emphatic. “We must not only have a free flow of goods and services, but also start working for a free flow of people.

“The border seems to become more and more a limitation the farther away you get from the border. But those who live in El Paso, those who live in Laredo, those who live in Nuevo Laredo, those who live in Ciudad Juárez, know that the border, in many senses, is an imaginary line,” he pointed out.

He takes the idea further. “The United States, Mexico, and Canada should be seen really as a single economic bloc, not as competitors.” But while looking at the big picture, his focus is, again, on the building blocks. While praising the success of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Hernández advocates taking NAFTA a step beyond to “help the small and micro companies to link up between the United States, Canada, and Mexico; then you will see, for example, job development just skyrocketing.”

He continues to implement tried and true tactics. Based on the success of the Guanajuato Trade Office in Texas, “we have now created the Mexico Trade Centers, for all 32 Mexican states,” the first of which was inaugurated recently in Santa Ana, California, he said. Because one of the pre-requisites of participation in this project is that the Mexican companies incorporate in the U.S., they become, in a sense, American corporations “with all the responsibilities and benefits that provides,” he noted.

Hernández is confident the changes will come. Already there’s momentum building in the United States and in Mexico toward positive change that won’t be stopped, he said, a drive he attributed in great part to the election of two presidents who share a deep understanding of the migration issue. Indeed, the two nations are set to announce new migration agreements come September.

And Mexico is ready to take its place at the table, he said. “We are not going to pretend that these issues do not exist; on the contrary, we are going to put them on the table and discuss them.”

“Before, we pretended like we were not even neighbors.”
