IMMIGRATION AND OUR SCHOOLS

Report: Record Immigration Transforming Americans’ School Districts

 The flood of legal and illegal immigration is overcrowding the schoolrooms which Americans built for their children, according to government data published by the non-partisan Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).  While working-age Americans face increased workplace challenges in a global market from overseas workers, professionals, and researchers, CIS shows how Americans’ children are losing classroom resources to the children of migrants invited by the federal government.
Immigrants and the children of immigrants comprise 93 percent of the student population Miami’s Northeast Dade County, 91 percent in Jackson Heights plus North Corona near New York City, 85 percent in Westpark Tollway, in Houston, Texas 78 percent in Annandale and West Falls Church, in northern Virginia. The districts are dubbed “Public Use Micro Areas.” and average roughly 20,600 students.
Nearly one-in-four students enrolled in taxpayer-funded schools in 2015 were from “an immigrant household.” In 1980, that share stood at only one-in-thirteen.  Over 59 million migrants entered the U.S. in the past five decades. The foreign-born population stood at roughly 42.4 million, or 13.3 percent of the U.S. population, in 2014, according to a 2015 CIS estimate. The Census bureau predicts that the foreign-born population is set to increase 85 percent by 2060. The U.S. is the most popular destination in the world for immigrants and attracts 20 percent of all the world’s migrants.  These are extraordinary numbers. But for decades, the political class has permitted mass immigration and looked the other way when it came to enforcing immigration laws on the books.

Canadian Border Authorities Detaining Record Number of Mexicans

 Canada’s border authorities detained more Mexicans in the first 67 days of 2017 than they did annually in any of the three previous years, according to statistics obtained by Reuters.   The spike comes immediately after Canada’s federal government lifted its visa requirement for Mexican citizens in December.
 Many Mexicans looking north have shifted their focus from the United States to Canada as President Donald Trump vows to crack down on America’s undocumented immigrants, about half of whom are Mexican. On Friday, Reuters reported, immigration judges were reassigned to 12 U.S. cities to speed up deportation.   The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said it detained 444 Mexican nationals between Jan. 1 and March 8, compared with 410 for all of 2016, 351 for 2015, and 399 for 2014.    The CBSA can detain foreign nationals if it is believed they pose a danger to the public, if their identity is unclear or if they are deemed unlikely to appear for removal or for a proceeding.    NEWSMAX – Read On>>>>>
