Tamar Jacoby, you lied.....again!

Tamar Jacoby, joined at the hip with all those other 'comprehensive' reform traitors, was on the Lars Larson Radio show last night. Among other distortions, she argued with Larson that Hispanic illegal aliens have an 85% graduation rate! NOT!

High School Graduation Rates in the United States
This study examines high school graduates rates in the US. It reports that the national graduation rate for the class of 1998 was 71%. For white students the rate was 78%, while it was 56% for African-American students and 54% for Latino students. (NOTE! This study is from the the Manhatten Inst. - the same group Jacoby works out of!)
From the Pew Hispanic Center:
Foreign-born youths are significant contributors to the nation's teen school dropout population. Only 8 percent of the nation's teens are foreign born, but nearly 25 percent of teen school dropouts were born outside the United States, according to a Pew Hispanic Center analysis of data from the 2000 U.S. Census.

Many of these foreign-born school dropouts–nearly 40 percent–are recent arrivals to this country who were already behind in school before they left for the United States.
According to NCES produced data on dropout rates for 2002 by race and ethnicity, one third of dropouts were Hispanics.
