The era of Big Government expands daily and one area of gratis goodies is free food. First the kiddies got free breakfast, then lunches and snacks so any unfortunate stomach rumbles would be prevented. In some places, free food is dispensed through the schools during the summer vacation months.
Now we learn that nearly a million [...]
In Oakland CA, the International High School educates nearly 100 border surge kiddies, as noted in a typically diversity-positive story from PBS. We learn about all the special services the junior illegal foreigners receive, but no dollar cost to the taxpayer is given. They get free meals, special language classes and lots of psychological counseling [...]
It’s bad enough that Democrat-run California has legislated driving permits for job-stealing illegal aliens, but that’s only the beginning of crazed uber-government run amok. It’s everywhere, from brightly colored toy guns to transgender rights. Sacramento has done its darndest to impose its nosey values into every area of life.
One non-existent liberal concern is public safety. [...]
In 1994, the Atlantic monthly published an article by then-reporter Roy Beck that was a wake-up call about extreme immigration diversity being foisted on America: The Ordeal of Immigration in Wausau. I remember reading it around that time and thinking Hmmm…
Now a pro-immigration writer has looked under the Hmong immigration rock, and he probably shouldn’t [...]
The New York Times analyzed the California experience with illegal immigration on Sunday, with the usual slant that diversity happens and American citizens should just lay back and enjoy the tacos.
Apparently, the paper believes that Obama’s unilateral action was Not Enough Amnesty because all 11-20 million weren’t covered, hinted in a prominent photo:
As is often [...]
Every city news outlet should replicate the New York Post’s detailed report on the effects on local schools, including dollar costs, from the flood of illegal alien kiddies from Central America.
Sunday’s Post front page directed readers to the story:
Educating backward children from the Third World is an expensive project. One example is Lynn Massachusetts, where [...]
The Golden State remains #1 in a most unfortunate category: poverty. Democrat regulatory policies strangling business certainly cause a lot of joblessness which keeps millions poor. Plus, the purposeful admission of millions immigrants and illegal aliens is a tremendous poverty driver.
California is particularly welcoming to illegal aliens. Democrat Governor Jerry Brown reportedly told a room [...]
Washington liberal elites love the fable that welcoming foreign students into US universities spreads American values on the cheap. The State Department in particular promotes student visas that directly harm US young people by displacing them from jobs (J-1 visa) to college slots.
The universities depend on foreign students writing checks for full tuition. And of [...]
Race remains the prime issue of leftists who use it daily as a club against their political enemies from Washington to Ferguson MO.
But as psychological identifiers go, language is more important. A person of any race can be a loyal and enthusiastic American, but someone who doesn’t speak English cannot be, because non-English speakers remain [...]
When National Public Radio covers the thousands of illegal alien kids now expensively cluttering up the nation’s classrooms, it likes to emphasize the sob story hook of gang violence in Central America. So when the diverse kiddies end up in New Orleans, there is some irony, since the Crescent City is known for violent crime. [...]
The boilerplate Associated Press story about schools struggling to cope with illegal alien children dumped on them had little to recommend it, except for a fascinating new category of language instruction: Accelerating Preliterate English Language Learners (A.P.E.L.L) which appeared in a caption only.
AP caption: “In this photo taken Sept. 11, 2014, teacher Lori Ott, center, [...]
The federal government continues to redistribute illegal alien children around the country where local schools are forced to pay for their special extended needs beyond mere classroom education. A recent estimate from FAIR puts the price tag at $761 million for this school year, but that amount does not include a myriad of associated costs.
