Our U.S. public schools are overwhelmed and our children are paying for it. According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in the past fiscal year. 146,925 unaccompanied children and minors have crossed the US-Mexico border. In comparison, in FY 2020, there were only 33,239. These migrant children are being flown throughout the United States. This is all happening at the expense of American taxpayers.
Public school systems throughout the U.S. are dealing with this influx of illegal migrants. Many of these children need translators and are not at the same level as American students of the same age. Sometimes 19 and 20 year olds are placed with 9th and 10th graders. (Imagine your 14, 15 and 16-year olds being integrated with these students.) There’s an increased need for teachers, teacher aids, counselors, translators, support for the parents and (in many schools) gang prevention programs. Watch Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), Jessica Vaughan explains the impact that these children are having on our public schools on Justice with Judge Jeanine.
