"The barriers to higher education they face, which include ... legal restrictions, are well documented."

"Generally, that meant girls who had limited English language skills..."

"A parent's limited English skills can also be a barrier."

"The newly divorced factory worker had a 3rd grade education."


It is a shame the Deseret News is once again tacitly condoning illegal immigration.

"The most important role models for young girls, especially in the Hispanic community, is found with the family system," she said. "Hispanic mothers have a huge impact on how their daughters make decisions."

And these mothers should be setting a good example and should be teaching their children respect for the law and for one's fellow man. Such is the foundation of a solid education.

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.
