condoning illegal immigration. "The most important role models

system," she said. "Hispanic mothers have a huge impact on how their

Why do you assume limited language skills automatically means a person is an
illegal immigrant? I work with students every day who are here legally and
struggle with the language. They come from all over the world. Your sort of
stereotyping serves no positive purpose.
