According to the Princeton Policy Advisors, they anticipate that the continued border crossings from Central America (illegal aliens) will lead to hundreds of thousands being released into the United States under ‘catch and release,’ which most likely will cause a drain on our school system to the likes of 300,000 illegal students been enrolled.
“We anticipate more than 700,000 migrants will successfully enter the country, increasing the unauthorized Hispanic population by nearly 10%”
Someone has to understand this is a drain on the American education system. This projected increase places a huge burden on local school districts and states — many of which are already struggling to provide a good education for the children who live there legally.
Under the Obama Administration, if an illegal family couldn’t prove they lived in the district or parent or guardian showed up with them to the school or didn’t have valid identification, the school officials were directed to treat the children as homeless students.
Kopits: “By year-end, nearly 300,000 migrant children are expected to enter the U.S. Over time, these will show up in the U.S. public school system.
“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.
“Because apprehensions have been growing over time, forecasts for calendar year 2019 are higher than for the fiscal year. For the calendar year, we anticipate 1,040,000 apprehensions (v. 1,072,000 last month), with more than 400,000 of these children.”
This week, we announced how apprehensions were down in June 2019 (105K) to May 2019 (144K) but Kopits said that he still felt that over one million illegal aliens will be caught at the border and later released in the United States to appear at a court on a certain date, which we won’t see them ever again.
