Ah, the old wetback license-plate ploy, again, eh?

I can recall when Elsmere wanted to pass an ordinance allowing the police to troll apartment house parking lots on the look-out for Pennsylvania license plates...

Now Homegrown Boy at Resolute Determination sees further evidence of society's deterioration in those self-same license plates:

This morning was the 4th car I’ve seen with PA tags on it yet sporting a bumper sticker announcing that their child is a superstar at the area public school.

Hmmmmm……………………if you’ve been in Delaware long enough to get your kid in school shouldn’t you have had time to get to motor v?

Or maybe school choice has really expanded it’s definition or …

the cynic in me said they’re here illegally using our tax dollars to teach their kid. (for the record American’s in Mexico get NO state funded services)


OK, HGB, let's see if we can't find a few plausible reasons (aside from wetback invasion) why a car sporting PA plates might have a Delaware honor student bumper sticker:

1. The kid used to go to DE schools before the family moved into PA, and they never took the damn sticker off.

2. The car in question is being driven by grandma or grandpa who happen to live in PA and wanted to recognize their oh-so-talent child.

3. The car in question is being driven by a divorced parent who doesn't have custody of the child and doesn't live in-State.

4. The car in question is being driven by a member of the US Armed Forces who is not required (according to Federal law) to retag the vehicle away from the home state of record.

5. The parent in question is actually paying tuition to send the child over the State border in search of a specific school or type of school.

6. The parent in question was busier helping the kid with the homework that won the award than worrying about getting the car retagged.

The cynic in you is free to believe whatever the hell you want to believe, but before you move onto the next step of suggesting that for purposes of law and order [read: fewer brown people in our State] that the police should begin examining such discrepancies, please remember: probable cause this ain't.

When I moved from PA back to DE it took me 4 years to change my plates, LOL. Pure laziness. I guess that could be considered a crime.

One problem with illegals is that they have taken over the local horse racing business. I was a foreman at Winbak breeding farm on the Bohemian in 2003 and when an issue rose with another foreman, I was told I was expendable because of the need to keep these 150 Mexicans happy (they were flown in every season).

Illegals are present in large numbers, especially at Fair Hill but also Delaware Park's backside. The help is almost exclusively hispanic and you can't get a job in these barns without speaking Spanish. That prohibits me and many others who worked with horses all our lives from easily obtaining work in this industry.

That we do nothing to put illegals out of the country is a problem for US workers.

These immigrants aren't picking jobs in NCC that US workers don't want. They are filling the ranks in cleaning, landscaping, dry-walling, framing and etc. and illegals are definately keeping wages down by virtue of their inability to fight back against 'the system'.

I know one guy who just got a job after looking for two solid months for a groom job. He is a former trainer and came into this area for a foreman's job. Now he finally has a grooming job but time after time he was turned away for not being able to speak spanish.

Apparently there's no concern (or reality), that the inundation of the common working class by illegal aliens will ever have a negative impact on the elitists in the halls of academia. Careful Ms. Willing, stating a practical, non-academic perspective may get you labeled as "anti-brown person".
