‘Govt. encouraging fraud’: Summer’s flood of illegal immigrant children swamping US schools

Unaccompanied minors are pouring into America’s classrooms at an alarming rate, and many are unable to read or speak English.

Teachers and school districts across the country are being forced to accommodate tens of thousands of children, Fox News reported Saturday.

“They may have only gone to second or third grade [and] have limited literacy in their first language,” Kelly Reider, county administrator for Anne Arundel County, Md., told Fox. “That does create a different kind of teaching impact on a school than our traditional immigrant families.”

About 63,000 children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have been apprehended this year, and each deportation proceeding takes an average of 500 days, according to The Hill.

The Obama administration sent 1,000 undocumented children to Louisiana “without telling us, without telling social services, without telling the schools,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Wednesday on the “Laura Ingraham Show.”

Nassau County on Long Island, N.Y., received 1,096 children, and Harris County, Texas, took in 2,866, Fox News reported.

“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 U.S. Department of Education said in a fact sheet sent to administrators this month, estimating that there are “more than 840,000 immigrant students in the United States, and more than 4.6 million English learners.”

U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. — the two top Republican lawmakers on congressional judiciary committees — told the Department of Homeland Security that immigration officials are fraudulently allowing children to stay in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to Fox News.

“The American people deserve to understand why their own government would be encouraging fraud and potentially even helping some who want to do us harm [and] game the system in order to do so,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Homeland Security.

The deferred action program was meant as a reprieve to children who were already in the country, the lawmakers wrote, and immigration officials are not verifying that requirement.

Meanwhile, President Obama believes the surge is over.

“The number of apprehensions in August are down from July, and they’re actually lower than they were August of last year,” Obama said, according to Fox. “Apprehensions in July were half of what they were in June.”

Not true, according to Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Tx. “There is a downturn with all categories of illegal immigrants in the summer. It’s the hottest month, it’s probably the most dangerous time to cross hundreds of miles of desert, and so this is not unusual,” Smith said. “I do think there will be an uptick again,” the lawmaker told Fox.

    It would not matter if there were a Border Patrol agent on the entirety of the border who was there to stop illegal immigration if we just jailed employers who employed them. They would not come here if there were no jobs for them.

    1. JoJo says:

      Don’t forget about the ones that come here and do not work, including teens, older illegal aliens and criminals. Just jailing employers will not stop these types.

    I am waiting with my family for my green card(GC) since 2004. Before arriving here I waited for several years patiently in my home country to process my work visa. I am a high tech stem graduate , I never tried to cross fence, I never cut a line to jump forward, I never broke any law (not even a DMV law) . I am working for a US firm , I got best employee award in my firm in rows, I have potential to earn 10 times more like my other colleagues by accepting higher promotions and contribute more to US economy with my quality services. I was told that my kids who are waiting for their GC might have to return back if they become adult before they get their GC. Is there any single sensible politician in USA who care about law abiding legal people like us? Are we not even worth even discussing because we don’t form a vote bank? Any one single person please?

      Actually he lost both times!!! If you remove all the Proven Fraud in over 200 districts, of course that is Holders job that will NEVER do. If he enforced the LAW he would have had to arrest Barry 5 years ago, and would have lost his job.
