The Massive Immigration Wave Hits America’s Schools and Shelters (2024)

– School systems complain about the rising costs of handling illegal immigrants.
> I would not use the word complain, as they ask for more raises, less hours, and extras along the way. I would use the word blackmail, as it fits the grift much better. If they truly cared about the children, then they wouldn’t allow this to occur. It’s called a walkout! Because the School System (ie. Teachers), truly only care about $$ and Benefits, they use these opportunities to do a money grab, and to be codified. They would never stand up for the kids and refuse to teach, or Not Teach, under the circ*mstances. That doesn’t pay nearly as well…

– In Stoughton, Mass., students arrive with traumatic pasts and little English. The same is happening in Denver.
> Everywhere is the same. Some way more traumatized by the time they arrive, depending on the path they were forced to take.

– Millions of migrants, most seeking asylum, have crossed the border in recent years and have been allowed to settle in the U.S. until a federal immigration judge decides their fate, a process that can take years. Among the record numbers, federal data suggest, are as many as one million children who have arrived with their families or on their own since 2021.
> Very few seek asylum, and the first entry is the place you must/should go. Most have their last stop in America, but the Teachers (Unions) say Nothing, as do the Politicians who get the benefits, and of course the children, who are used in all sorts of ways.

– They are settling in cities and entering public schools around the U.S., adding financial and logistical strains in communities where they have arrived in large numbers. Districts are faced with the need for additional teachers and staff who can teach English and space for new students, often while waiting for promised supplemental federal or state funding.
> See above, don’t fall for promises, and watch your backs.

– Denver schools, for example, earlier this year announced a $17.5 million budget shortfall because of new migrant students.
> Nobody saw that coming, except EVERYONE Not In On The Grift, but they couldn’t do anything about it.

– Haitians have flocked to Massachusetts, which has an established population from the long-troubled Caribbean country.
> Long Troubled, uneducated, sick, etc. so Let Them In (Illegally) says Biden Inc.

– Massachusetts is legally mandated to offer shelter to any family that seeks it. Migrant families recently comprised about half of the 7,477 homeless families recently living in state shelters, which are at capacity. The state since October 2022 has spent roughly $26 million to reimburse school districts for costs associated with students living in shelters.
> So we have tens of thousands of homeless Americans, and they DO NOT GET mandated shelter and educations, and healthcare, but are left homeless and drugged out in tent cities on the streets of crime. No mandates for them, as they just live here legally, so let them figure it out.

– I was wondering when we would start seeing stories like this. No doubt this is happening all over the country.
> It most certainly is, and the MSM will not (not allowed) report anything negative (as discussed above) about it. Those in charge want it kept as quiet as possible, until they reach 30M or so. You speak, you lose (Freedom, Job, License, rights, etc.) and in these times, on purpose of course, you don’t want to be on the losing side of this administration, Just Ask Trump!

– I pity any of these kids who end up in hopeless Chicago schools.
> I couldn’t agree more, and the education they leave with, will be more suited for the streets. Hmm… I wonder if that’s also part of the overall plan of Chaos?

– Biden’s energy policy is inflationary; student loan cancellations are inflationary; the push for union wages are inflationary; the inflation reduction act is inflationary; tariffs (both Trump and Biden are guilty) are inflationary; deficit spending is inflationary; and the need to shelter millions of migrants is inflationary.
> Everything right now is inflationary, and this happens when you’re out of ideas, made some really bad choices, and other peoples money is starting to run out.

– This is not a pretty mix.
> Nope, not at all, and it isn’t even bad just yet. Wait until Summer… “Idle minds are the playground of the Devil” and this summer will prove that out with immense destruction to our streets, schools, and neighborhoods… for starters!!!
