California Leading the Way
|American Patrol Report Comment -- August 25
Half of the students in the California school system are Hispanic, and half of them don't speak English well.
Click here to see the history of this catastrophe.
Hispanics make up about 30 percent of the prison population , and violent crime is the most likely reason for being there.
In 2006, median household for all Whites in the U.S. about $52,000, but for Hispanics it was $38,000.
Hispanics are almost three times more likely to live in poverty than Whites.
The bulk of California's state budget is spent on education and incarceration.
A complex financial system finds that local school districts such as that in Los Angeles get almost all their funding from the state.
With the support of extreme left-wing liberals, California has been importing poverty for more than 30 years. Yesterday, the California governor said he must hold back $3 billion in payments to schools and county governments.
As California leads the rest of the nation into a depression, remember to thank the Los Angeles Times.
