The Obama administration has decreed that illegal alien children, at least 62,000 of them by the government’s count, must be absorbed into our public schools. These children, who are here illegally and who President Obama said would be sent home, do not speak English, have little or no relevant education, and will be “mainstreamed” into classes in your schools. They are also entitled to a long laundry list of benefits paid for my US taxpayers.
Existing resources that may be helpful to communities enrolling immigrant children, including newly arrived immigrant children, include:
• Services for Educationally Disadvantaged Children (Title I)
• Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
• English Language Acquisition Programs
• McKinney-Vento Act
• Migrant Education Programs (MEP)
• National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition
Many of these children will be enrolled as “homeless” rather than citing them as illegal aliens. It’s easier for the Federal Government to lose them that way.
With respect to the President’s “promise” to deport them, good luck with that.
The Obama administration issued a policy late last week telling immigration agents to try not to arrest and deport illegal immigrant parents of minor children — a move that adds to the categories of people the administration is trying not to deport.
In a nine-page memo issued Friday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said agents should use “prosecutorial discretion” to try to avoid detaining parents
Even if the administration was sincere about deporting them, there are hurdles.
WASHINGTON – The backlog of pending deportation cases in federal immigration court has risen to nearly 400,000 amid a crush of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children and families caught crossing the Mexican border illegally this year, according an analysis of court data released Friday.
The large and growing court backlog has led to years-long waits for immigration cases to be completed. Earlier this year, the Justice Department announced plans to move cases of unaccompanied immigrant children to the top of the docket.
Why does it take so long for simple cases to be completed and the illegal aliens to be deported?
President Barack Obama’s administration will spend $2 million dollars of taxpayer funds to provide illegal immigrant children with legal representation.
On Friday, the Justice Department announced a “justice AmeriCorps” program that will fund nearly 100 lawyers across 29 cities with one-year grants and stipends so they can represent illegal immigrants who have been flooding into the country and being warehoused, most notably in Texas.
“With the launch of justice AmeriCorps, we’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. “How we treat those in need, particularly young people who must appear in immigration proceedings – many of whom are fleeing violence, persecution, abuse or trafficking – goes to the core of who we are as a nation.”
Get used to having illegal aliens in your schools. The latest batch are supposed to be vaccinated against childhood disease that is uncommon in the US, but we know they’re carrying a variety of diseases that haven’t been seen in the US in decades if not generations.
Have a fun school year.
