Can anyone tell me the percentage of children of illegal immigrants who attend college? Specifically in Texas. We are arguing the HB 104 (in state tuition bill) in my government class and I need to know how many children of illegal immigrants who were not born in the US actually attend institutions of higher education....

What is your favorite book or DVD series about Mexico? Particularly historical fiction or contemporary fiction. Preferably in English, but if you have a great recommendation in Spanish, I'd take that too! My grandmother thanks you! [more inside]

Calling all Crohnies! I'm helping to throw a traditional New Mexican dinner party for a group of students on Thursday night. We'd planned for the vegetarian contingency, but have found out that one young woman has a bad case of Crohn's Disease. [more inside]

Idiom filter: Party Pants.
I was watching Cien Mexicanos Dijeron (the Unavision version of Family Fued) with my girlfriend, when they got to the final stage, where two people try to answer quick questions with the most popular answers.
We didn't manage to catch the first contestant's answer, nor the question, and the second contestant was clearly just spitballing with her answer of what we believe was "cepillo de dientes" (toothbrush). According to the the host, the most popular answer was "pantalones festivos."
Festive pants? What the hell? [more inside]

What specific laws are illegal immigrants breaking while being here illegally? What laws are broken if they hop the border, and what laws are broken if they over-stay a visa? Are violating these laws crimes, or civil infractions? Are there any state laws on immigration violations? [more inside]

Day laborers. You know, the guys hanging around Home Depot (or Chavez Street in San Francisco) waiting for work. What's the protocol for hiring them for a day? What's the going rate? There's got to be a lunch break, but they don't seem to be carring lunch. Besides being paid in cash, what else is expected? If your Spanish is muy malo like mine, what do I need to know? How do I choose? Does anyone here have any experience in hiring a day laborer?

Looking for information on a painting commonly seen on the walls of Mexican restaurants and sometimes sprayed on the hoods of low-riders. It is a scene of what I believe is an Aztec warrior holding a naked woman above his head. It might be a sacrifice scene.
What is the name and origin of this painting? Link to a picture would be appreciated. Muchas gracias.

Name That Band: Mexican punk band featured on NPR two days ago (Wednesday); fun music aimed at kids, but kind of "anti-fairy tale" stuff with in-your-face references to corrupt police officers and politics and such, no mollycoddling whatsoever. Who are they? They're cool (and fun for adults too). Google and Search NPR are not helping.
