SALDAÑA AND THE DELAY TACTIC WHICH INCREASES ATTORNEYS FEES

These are excerpts from a letter by the Texas OAG to BISD Attorney Saldana. It speaks to his incompetence and use of delay tactics which increases attorney fees. Whether it is BISD or the City of Brownsville they do not want to hire competent counsel. They are looking for someone who will provide them cover under the guise of legal advice. I can assure you everyone applying for the position of City Attorney is turning over the key to their chastity belt as proof they will do whatever is asked of them.

"Although you raise section 552.101 of the Government Code in conjunction with rule 192.3, this office has concluded that section 552.101 does not encompass discovery privileges. See Open Records Decision Nos. 676 at 1-2 (2002), 575 at 2 (1990). Thus, we will not address your claim that the submitted information is confidential under section 552.101 in conjunction with rule 192.3."

"Next, we note that the United States Department of Education Family Policy Compliance
Office (the "DOE") has informed this office that the Family Education Rights and Privacy
Act ("FERPA"), section 1232g of title 20 of the United States Code, does not permit state
and local educational authorities to disclose to this office, without parental consent,
unredacted, personally identifiable information contained in education records for the
purposes of our review in the open records ruling process under the Act"

On the question in the herald about illegal students, let your readers get informed.

As long as they can prove residency, they can attend. It has nothing to do with legal status/IRS deductions etc.

Most of these students take advantage of the education. It is the thugs that are already here, using the system who are despised by most teachers.

B. Fair, where did I mistate anything. The case you refernce has nothing to do with the issue. Maybe I was not clear _ I will accept that.

Under US Supreme Court authority a student can be denied admission to a school if they do not live in the district.

Everyday parents who love in Matamoros drive their children into the US and drop them off at Lopez, for example. They do not have residency in the BISD District.

What they do have is a fraudulent address given to them by someone in Brownsville. Why would someone in Brownsville allow a child in Matamoros to use their address?

The deal is the Browsville resident is claiming them as a dependent. This means they get all of the tax credits given by the IRS at tax time.

The child tax credits paid by the taxpayer to this Brownsville resident are tax fraud. The child does not actually live with them.

If the district believes a child actually lives elsewhere than the district they have the right to investigate.

In big cities it is not unusual for football players to actually live in Dallas, but play for another city in the suburbs. The kid will open his big mouth to someone, it gets reported to the school whcih lost the gaem, an investigation follows, and the kid is sent back to Dallas.

These are the facts.

Each time progress reports/report cards are sent out those that are returned and there are many are checked by the home visitor. Some of the students live in Brownsville part of the time some none but they must use an address that is ar real one not like in the old days.

A bit more on our sister city: Matamoros, formally Heroic Matamoros, is a city in the northeast of the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. It is located at 25°52′N 97°30′W / 25.867, -97.5, across the Rio Grande from the U.S. state of Texas. In the 2005 census the city of Matamoros had a population of 422,711.

Matamoros is about 621 miles away from Mexico City and 354 miles from Houston, Texas, USA. The city was renamed for Independence War hero Mariano Matamoros in the early 19th century. The city also holds the "H" for "Heroic" or "Heroica" before the name because the city was defended from invaders trying to take it over.

"There is no doubt in my mind for some board members he crossed someone and is paying the price and it is political. But just because some Board Members are acting in political retaliation - should I ignore the lower TAKS scores which impact graduation rates? Should I ignore the problems in special services which Gonzales neglected just because some Board Members are playing politics"

However if in the process they exposed corruption, and make justice so be it.
They have my blessing and should have your too. Isn't that what you have been fighting for?
