Children Of Illegal Immigrants

House Republicans didn't go nearly far enough when they passed a bill denying education to the children of illegal immigrants. That's a half-baked measure that will just leave kids hanging around street corners, getting into trouble. To be consistent, they should have ordered that illegal kids be rounded up, forcibly separated from their parents and shipped in boxcars back to their countries of origin.

There will be no Son of Proposition 187 on the California ballot this fall. The so-called "Save Our State-2" initiative--crafted as a follow-up to Proposition 187--has failed to qualify for the November ballot, the California secretary of state's office confirmed Wednesday. Ron Prince, the Orange County activist who authored the proposal, did not submit any of the more than 433,000 signatures needed before last week's deadline, said Alfie Charles, a spokesman for Secretary of State Bill Jones.

On days when I wake up on the right side of the bed, the predicted passage of Proposition 187 hardly fazes me. On those days, its passage seems no more harmful than people voting for Ross Perot for President in 1992. They knew he wouldn't win, but if it made them feel better to blow off some steam in the voting booth, then God bless America. People may know that Proposition 187 will pass, but will it be enacted in any meaningful way?

Prop. 187 would prevent children of illegal immigrants from attending our public schools. Those who think this will save us money are fooling themselves. The children who are excluded from our schools will still get an education. It will not be a formal education obtained in the schoolroom; instead it will be an education obtained on the streets, and the cost to us will be many times greater than the cost of letting those children go to our schools. ALBERT L. ROCKLIN Laguna Hills It seems like the bleeding hearts that are against the proposition are looking at all the wrong reasons.

California's second-largest teachers union has refused to endorse Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Los Angeles) in the June 2 Democratic primary, labeling as "cheap politics" his support of a proposal to deny U. S. citizenship to American-born children of illegal immigrants. But the president of the California Federation of Teachers left open the possibility that the 35,000-member union may endorse Beilenson, a longtime ally, in the November general election.

Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Los Angeles), a longtime civil rights advocate running for reelection in a more conservative district, has announced his support for a controversial constitutional amendment that would deny U.S. citizenship to the American-born children of illegal immigrants. "It won't solve the problem; it will solve a tiny part of the problem," Beilenson told constituents at a town hall meeting in Canoga Park last week.

Finally, someone who is willing to address the controversial issue of immigration. I was starting to believe elected officials were afraid to speak out on this topic. Congressman Elton Gallegly is proposing legislation to update a portion of the 14th Amendment. This new legislation includes keeping U.S.--born children of illegal immigrants from automatically qualifying for costly medical and welfare services. This is not a racist issue because it is not limited to any one race, and will benefit Americans of all races.

Waving signs stating "Immigrants Pay Taxes" and "Gag Gallegly," about 75 people demonstrated outside the Chatsworth office of Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) Wednesday to protest his efforts in Congress to deny citizenship to children born in the United States to illegal immigrants. In legislation introduced in October, Gallegly proposed that only children born to mothers who are citizens or legal residents be granted citizenship.

Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) has proposed a constitutional amendment that would deny U. S. citizenship to children born in this country to illegal immigrants. Gallegly, in legislation introduced Tuesday, proposes that only children born to mothers who are citizens or legal residents be granted citizenship--a move that he said would save taxpayers billions of dollars a year in welfare payments.
