LA teachers union advocates for illegals, then complains of overcrowded classrooms

About 30,000 Los Angeles teachers and school employees are holding education hostage to demand higher pay and “smaller class sizes” – a popular phrase that equates to more dues paying union employees.

On picket lines across the district Monday, striking teachers toted protest signs in the rain as they swapped horror stories about classes with 40 or more students packed in “like sardines.” What they didn’t discuss: How the United Teachers Los Angeles union’s immigration policies contribute to overcrowded schools and its demands for more staff to handle the situation.

“It’s absolutely not about the pay raise. It’s about class size reduction. In other words, hire more teachers,” teacher Andrea Cohen told CNN. “We want to have fully staffed schools. That means librarians, nurses, psychiatric social workers and their interns. We have 46, 45, 50 students in a class. That’s unacceptable.”

Well can those idiots expect when they want to let anyone in schools whether they belong in this country or not. Many years ago I went to elementary school in San Jose Calif. and it was hard to learn anything as over half of the classes were mexican kids who spoke broken english and some of them couldn't speak any english at all.

Sorry we can't hire more teachers or give you a pay raise, that kinda stuff comes from your taxes. You know, the same taxes that all those illegal immigrants you love so much don't pay. Maybe more people will change their views on immigration when it starts directly affecting them. Looks like the teacher's union is going to have to learn the hard way.

It wasn't that long ago an illegal from south of the border was revealed to actually be 22 years old and assigned to the freshman class in a California high school. He was charged with raping a 14 year old female in a hallway.

Pelosi and Schumer ignored a request to meet with her parents.
