Photo's From Whittier, California
As the protests continue around Southern California by high school students here are some very interesting photographs.
Locking down all schools in Los Angeles County did not stop the students from walking out in protest yesterday, so what will school officials do next, to stem this protest from spreading to other schools throughtout Los Angeles?
I have had one of my children walk off campus last year, and I was threatened with a fine and jail time by school officials if it occurred again. I say fine all school administrators if they cannot control the children in their charge as well.
This may be off subject, but I hope my point is understood. How can I physically keep a child on school grounds while at work? It only angers me when I'm threatened with fines and jail time by school officials. So lets turn the tables and give the same punishments to the highly educated educators.
On the other side of the coin, what would the impact be if all illegal immigrants were sent back to their home countries? We have become dependant on immigrants to do many jobs, especially here in Los Angeles, from mowing our lawns, cleaning our homes, babysitting our children, keeping the prices down at fast food outlets, and cleaning our workplaces.
What is the spending power of the immigrants in Los Angeles, I'm sure it's somewhere near twenty-five percent if not higher?
There are no simple answers to this situation.
