Obama Makes Plans to Send Illegal Kids to US Schools


immigrantsThe Obama administration is preparing the nation’s schools to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations.

A fact sheet from the Department of Education sent to states and schools on Monday highlights the children’s right to attend public school.

It says all children in the United States “are entitled to equal access to a public elementary and secondary education, regardless of their or their parents’ actual or perceived national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.”

The prospect of tens of thousands of children mostly from Central American countries attending school as they wait for their immigration status to be decided has the potential to be explosive after this summer’s emotional public debate about the border.

Several Republican governors have blasted the federal government for releasing many of the minors to sponsors in their home states, and protests in which demonstrators blocked buses from delivering immigrants to shelters erupted in June and July.

Now some state officials are worried about the additional costs they’ll endure from educating the children.

“There are many consequences of the federal government’s failure to secure the border and the fiscal impact of educating unaccompanied alien children is certainly one of them,” said Travis Considine, a spokesman for Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R).

Around 63,000 children, mostly from the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, have been apprehended this year trying to cross the border.

Many are in the 150 or so shelters operated around the country by the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Education said those children would attend classes in those facilities.

  1. these kids are not only from central american, they aprehended several hundred kids from counries like, nigeria, yemen, pakistan, somalia, afganistan…
    also these kids are unscreened, many have diseases like strep, stds, tuberculosis, lice, scabies, chicken pox….

  2. BHO must be removed from office promptly because he himself is not well enough to be the Chief Executive of the United States.

  3. All the kids get tested before they get released to a shelter. And many countries have higher rates of vaccination than the US, including several in C. America.
    There are plenty of issues with letting these kids get released by the government, disease isn’t one of them. Don’t fear monger.

  4. It may be their right to attend school -although I doubt there is such a right; Who pays for the extra classes, teachers, breakfast and lunch programs, the ESL and other staff? It’s not the Federal Government – it’s the local taxpayers. Even if the Feds cover the initial year’s (or two) costs, the local taxpayers have to cover the rest. Prepare for the property tax blast-off!

    What’s next – the right to own a car?
