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.
FAIR has produced an estimate of the cost of illegal alien kids dumped onto American schools and social services — $761 million, including a map of state costs:
Fox reported the story on Tuesday:

It’s good to have a specific estimate of the education costs, however that’s just the tip of the [...]
Student visas are the perfect scam for any youngish-lookng person to enter the United States for whatever reason: simply enroll in some sort of educational institution from genuine accredited universities to low-rent visa mills, then never show up for classes and disappear into stupid-open America. The current estimate is that 6,000 foreigners considered concerning have [...]
Now self-liberated from CBS News, ace investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson is digging up facts on important topics like government secrecy.
The feds are particularly silent about the whereabouts of tens of thousands of illegal alien children it has redistributed all around the country, she has learned. The little lawbreakers have privacy rights, the bureaucrats argue.
Nobody cares [...]
Fox News took some basic facts from a Baltimore Sun news story and plugged in the dollars: 2804 illegal alien kids from Central America, at $13,609 per Maryland student comes out to $38,159,636. But that’s the cost for normal citizen students: the newbies also need Spanish-speaking teachers, special counselors and psychological treatment for trauma incurred [...]
The administration’s dumping of thousands of illegal alien kids all across America ends up being strongly felt in local schools. Parents reasonably object to resources being redirected from citizen students toward aliens, plus they have concerns of communicable disease and crime. Diversity may sound laudable in the abstract, but when it appears in your kid’s [...]
The University of California continues to increase its numbers of out-of-state and foreign students to pay full tuition. Each non-Californian pays an extra $23,000 annually, and the UC bean counters like that.
Monday’s Los Angeles Times article did not mention one unsightly ball and chain on UC’s finances, namely the subsidies provided by unwilling taxpayers to [...]
