Census: Half of kids in top 700 school systems from immigrant homes, 30% illegally

Written by  Paul Bedard

Children of immigrants, many in the United States illegally, make up the bulk of students in 700 of the biggest school areas, a huge and unexpected wave that is changing education and society in America, according to a groundbreaking new report.

Using Census Bureau statistics and Google Maps, the Center for Immigration Studies found that in areas including northern Virginia, New York City and Houston, children of immigrants made up to 93 percent of all students.

"The number of children from immigrant households in schools is now so high in some areas that it raises profound questions about assimilation," said the report provided to Secrets.

"What's more, immigration has added enormously to the number of public school students who are in poverty and the number who speak a foreign language. This cannot help but to create significant challenges for schools, often in areas already struggling to educate students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds," it added.

The interactive report allows users to drill down to counties and cities to see the immigrant numbers in the "Public Use Micro Areas" used in Census studies. It focuses on PUMAs of 20,600 students or more.

Overall, 23 percent of all public school students were from an immigrant household in 2015.

They want to bring their country with them..not the regular immigrants from long ago that wanted to become American

Our San Diego school district teachers and administrators are whining that their budget will be cut. These are the same dolts that wanted illegal kids in the schools so they would get more $$$. Public Ed. is now indoctrination not education. Common commie Core will be tossed out and school vouchers to help poor kids will be an option. Nick G. is right on. The Teachers Union wants illegal kids to pad the numbers for more tax $$$ .

This is designed to destroy Western society. Don't take anyone else's word for it.. Read it, or hear it in speeches and book by the leftist scum. THEY ARE TELLING YOU THIS... "By any means".. And every one of them needs to be in prison where they belong. Safely away from society.

Obviously the best and brightest are coming to America. Thankfully we have an infusion of intelligence in this country coming from abroad. Judging by many of the comments from others it is obvious that we desperately need it.

Finally someone else on this site with a fully functional mind!

Need to be deported. My son inlaw works 60 to 80 hrs a week just to pay rent and bills. They can never get help even with school lunches. BUT ILLEGALS GET MORE THAN US CITIZENS AND VETERANS. DEPORT!

The students also get meals year around and they do not even have to prove they are students. There are also places for the families to get clothes, shoes, etc., and there is no charge. I'm as charitable as the next guy but our property taxes are through the roof and I feed and clothe my kids - by working. Imagine that. The liberals are all for open borders but none of them are stepping up to sponsor anyone.

Time I guess is here for the people to rebel over these higher taxes for a bunch of illegals/not legal to get a free education to later want to take the country over. I don't have kids in school anymore but I still pay taxes for those in school and that's ok but to raise my taxes for a kid who is not a citizen with parents who aren't citizens all on welfare that doesn't set well. The old term was wet backs and when I was a kid there weren't this many only in Kalifornicate or Arizona. Today there everywhere living on OUR buck laughing at us as where they came from they had to work or go hungry. This is a disgrace to we the American tax payer to have to put up with this. They wave the Mexican flag and chant LaRaza as they go cash thier welfare checks laughing at us. This pisses me off to no end.

In Ca. they can now get tuition grants through the govt to go to college.I think the liberals have a great idea,considering there isn't enough money for those that ARE citizens to get help.

We set around screwing ourselves to look good to the world of Illegals/not legal. We are fools to make life here in America good for them while snubbing our own people. Liberals who ran the show all should be fired after they serve 18mo in jail for this crap and waste of tax payers money on non citizens while looking the other way to screw our own people

This means that 23% (nearly 1/4) of all education costs for OUR country are illegitimate and unnecessary. How many $millions is that in your district. Most of your property taxes are for schools. That means YOUR TAXES SHOULD BE REDUCED BY 1/4. Property taxes of $4000, = $1000 stolen from you.

Property taxes on the east coast almost always in excess of $8000. That's $2000 lifted right out of your pockets.

The reason for illegals is to keep classrooms filled and union teachers employed. This keeps union leaders in their vacation homes and cadillacs and money flowing to the democrat party. Its a way to funnel property tax revenue to the democrat party.

The cost of educating all these illegals is staggering. They need ESL, interpreters, etc. Who do you think is footing this bill? We are! My property taxes in NJ are already astronomical and 80% of my taxes goes to fund the schools! This is getting out of hand . Trump is trying to halt some immigration but is stonewall ed by the states and courts. He does need to shut down all immigration for at least 1 year. No new applications accepted - this way they can't call it a Muslim ban.

Here is the unanswered question I have been asking for so many years now: If it is so clearly known that all of these kids are here illegally (which also almost certainly means their parents are here illegally), and we obviously know where they live, why are they not being arrested and deported? Why?
