Democrats claim to love them some poor people, and poor people seem to return the favor by voting for Democrats.
That probably explains why Democrats work so hard to make, and keep, people poor:
HEMPSTEAD – The Hempstead school board won’t renew the contract of a principal who instructed her students not to speak Spanish, in a rapidly-evolving district where more than half of the students, like many Texas schools, are now Hispanic.
Hempstead Middle School Principal Amy Lacey was placed on paid administrative leave in December after reportedly announcing, via intercom, that students were not to speak Spanish on the school’s campus. The Hispanic population of the rural area, roughly 50 miles northwest of Houston, is growing quickly, and Latino advocates say that it’s important to allow Spanish in public schools.
If you can keep Latino kids from assimilating even to the point where they learn the rudiments of the dominant language of the dominant culture, you can pretty much guarantee that they will live their lives in poverty and hopelessnes.
In other words, they make excellent future Democrat voters.
