The Big Surprise This Upcoming School Year

In Education, Front Page, Illegal immigration by Allen West

Summer is winding down, and soon school will be back in session. I remember as a kid growing up, we’d always wonder what the big surprise would be for the upcoming school year? Would there be some new teachers? Would the cafeteria food miraculously not suck anymore? Who broke up and hooked up over the summer? Who would be made the captain of the varsity football team? C’mon, think back to your fond memories of school, or not so fond, and what were the questions you would ponder that last week before school resumed?

Well, I can tell y’all that some of our schools are going to be in for a really big surprise, courtesy of the open borders cabal that exists in our US Congress.

As reported by the Washington Examiner:

“The continued surge of Latin American illegal immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border will lead to hundreds of thousands being released into the country, increasing the already massive population of migrants [illegal immigrants] by some 10%, according to a new analysis. 

“We anticipate more than 700,000 migrants will successfully enter the country, increasing the unauthorized Hispanic population by nearly 10%,” said the influential Princeton Policy Advisors. 

What’s more, wrote the group’s president Steve Kopits in a memo provided to Secrets, “By year-end, nearly 300,000 migrant [illegal immigrant] children are expected to enter the U.S. Over time, these will show up in the U.S. public school system.”

While apprehensions slowed last month, Kopits said that over 1 million illegal immigrants will be caught at the border, with most getting a pass into the United States while awaiting a court hearing on their status. An estimated 7 million to 9 million illegal immigrants are in the U.S., and are the focus of new federal efforts to find and deport those with criminal records and orders to leave.

Looking ahead, he said:

“Forecasting in the current environment is all but impossible, but at the moment it appears we are past the year’s peak and anticipate slightly lower, but still elevated, apprehensions levels going forward. This yields 937,000 apprehensions for FY 2019. Of these, we anticipate 538,000 will be adults traveling alone or in family units, and 354,000 will be minors. Given that we are three-quarters of the way through the fiscal year now, these numbers may be considered indicative.”

Now, some of you are saying, “so what, no big deal.” Hmm, you may wanna reconsider that. The public school system is funded by the tax dollars of legal citizens. Here in Texas, that is done primarily through property taxes, and we all know that — to borrow a once-popular phrase — “the property taxes are too damn high.”

One thing that 49 out of 50 States in our Union must do is balance their budgets, and as we know, based upon recent news outta DC, the federal government does not. Thus the reason we are running an almost $22T debt, and incessant annual budget deficit spending. Here in Texas, they just finished their 86th legislative session, and the budget has been set. Ask yourselves: does the new budget include a spike in school services for illegal immigrant children?

Imagine the potential increase in qualified bilingual students, and what this will mean for the advancement of our own children in classes? What happens to the rate of “education” when the greatest amount of time will be spent with translation? This influx will undoubtedly have an adverse effect on the overall teaching of our children.

Hmm, I don’t think you can just show up in Mexico, or France, illegally, and expect a free education for your children, not to mention free healthcare and other benefits.

Recently, we shared a report with you about the diseases our US Border Patrol agents, and their families are being exposed to. Yep, you know where I am going. The big surprise for this upcoming school year will be knowing if these illegal immigrant students  are up on their immunizations? What are their medical histories? Heck, we are already facing some interesting times for the public at large since these illegal immigrants are being released into our communities. Let’s be honest: we all know what kind of germ incubators schools can be. One kid comes down with it, the next thing you know, it has spread to other children, and into the home . . . then to other workplaces. I find it very disconcerting when these progressive socialist leftists grab their chests and express faux tears and disgust about illegal immigrant children. But they will willingly and knowingly expose our children to any amount of unseen, dangerous diseases.

They only care about children that can advance their delusional and deranged ideological agenda. It will not be long before they will be murdering the unborn babies of illegal immigrant women, oops, that is already happening. So much for caring about the babies, the children. Isn’t that right, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Yes, there will be some surprises this coming school year. Perhaps you, parents, should be asking the hard questions: how many illegal immigrant children will be starting the school year at your school? Even more so, in middle and high school, how many of these unaccompanied young males may have a criminal, gang-related, background? Anyone checking for MS-13 associations and tattoos? Heck, who is even verifying the ages of these young boys, or perhaps men?

I remember the story of a woman in England who took in a “migrant” young boy from Afghanistan, during the migrant flood that overtook Europe. She ended up dead as the so-called little boy was a man with a background as an Islamic jihadist. Yeah, so much for that goodwill thing.

If there is anything that should anger us all, it is that the progressive socialist left will endanger our children for their political and electoral gain. For them, it is all about their ideological agenda, and a key plank is that they want — demand — open borders.

Never forget young Kate Steinle, gunned down by a five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant in the sanctuary city of San Francisco. The judge in the case did not allow his previous deportation record to be introduced as evidence. A jury or leftists found him not guilty, not even on criminal possession of a firearm, and he was set free. Two young teenage girls, Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas were brutally beaten and hacked to death by MS-13 gang members on Long Island. When President Trump introduced the families of those two girls at his State of the Union Address, the left responded by saying they were just pawns, with no remorse for the loss of their daughters.

Do any of you believe that the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse — Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley — give a damn about your child being exposed to illegal immigrant children this coming school year?

The progressive socialist left has a surprise for our kids this coming school year, and it is nothing like those questions we used to ponder growing up.

To the left I must ask, doggone folks, you may hate President Trump, but do y’all hate your kids as well . . . ?
