What a silly/foolish man. He went to all the trouble of covering up the sign when all he needed to do was remove it if that's what he wanted to do in the first place.

All illegals in our Country come in a rainbow of colors and from many countries - China, Russia, India, Pakistan, Irland, and others. While everyone's focus is on the Hispanic illegals others get a "free ride" and they remain "quiet" while we attack Hispanics. I wish all Hispanics would go back to their countries! What would we do? No more salads or fruits at the low price we get them today, no more wine, no more clean sheets/rooms when we stay in hotels, no more car washes, no more favorite restaurants, etc. The only reason we have a problem with these individuals is that they are Hispanic and they are the "more vulnerable" group.
I'm sure that Ms. Scott lives in the vacinity of where the proposed treatment plant is being considered - so, as she shares, "save us money, save us time, and get this thing going"...what she really means is, "get this thing going before the subject dies"...I believe that the whole issue would "go away" if this plant were being considered "right smack" in the Victoria mayor's backyard. That would be progress. He seems to be in a hurry too.
I would have probably reacted in the very same way if I had witnessed ANY helpless child being molested - Imagine this happening to your very own. Also, now, one of the worries is whether the child has been exposed to any sexually transmitted disease. How very sad that such a small child has been hurt possibly for life. Father justified.
Where is the child's mother in all this?
Sylvia Garza, the individual interviewed, also shared with the reporter for the Advocate that there were thousands of Mexican and Tejano soldiers who participated in the Civil War. The Confederate Army recruited many Mexicans from Mexico to fight in the War and many Tejanos (from Texas). So, there are individuals in Mexico today, who have ancestors who fought in the Civil War in our Country...also, the ceremony was attended by the Granddaughters in honor of the Rubio Grandfather who served and is buried in Goliad. We must not forget that Tejanos also served - a history which needs further exploration.
"If You Give a Girl an Education" - Yep - went to Victoria College 47 years ago and then UH in Houston - continued on to MEd. and 30+hours towards a doctorate, etc., etc.,... If I had not begun at Victoria College no telling if I would have continued on...met many people and wonderful instructors at VC - everyone was treated with fairness and as though we were all important not just like a "few select" in high school. I was encouraged to "move on" and "move on" I did. No regrets here!
My family has been in Texas since the 1600's/1700's (Spanish/Mexican) and I consider myself "Tejana" because they've lived in this area - original vaqueros (cowboys) and ranchers in this beautiful land - interesting - we don't consider ourselves as Hispanic or Latino - nope, not in Texas/Southwest - maybe Mexican-American and yes, we were considered "white" to integrate our schools in Texas years ago -
What a beautiful group of children! I attended Hopkins when it first opened in 1953 - have nothing but wonderful memories - although we never celebrated Cinco de Mayo we participated in lots of activities and I'll never forget singing in the choir - I felt so special - I am a retired elementary school principal, 65 years old and have nothing but beautiful "Hopkins Elementary memories"! I hope that I too have made positive memories for my schoolchildren.
Victoria doesn't need anymore distracting "stuff" - it all looks so ugly!
