Flood of Illegal Immigrants to Pour into NYC Schools

Susan Edelman and Isabel Vincent, New York Post, November 23, 2014

New York has sent a warning to its schools: Expect more illegal immigrants.

The city Department of Education has told principals it plans this year to enroll 2,350 migrant children from Central America who crossed into the United States unaccompanied–with many more to come.

“It is expected that children will continue to arrive in large numbers in the coming years,” says a DOE memo to principals obtained by The Post.

The notice comes as the city rolls out a $50 million red carpet for 1,662 minors who crossed the border this summer to escape ­violence and gangs in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

In the “surge,” 5,000 of the 63,000 migrant kids caught trying to cross US borders–or who turned themselves in for refuge–have been released to relatives or other “sponsors” in New York state. Most live with other illegal immigrants.

The recent arrivals join an estimated 350,000 children of illegal immigrants already in New York state–about 12 percent of the public-school population.

The city’s per-pupil spending in the 2012-2013 academic year averaged $20,749, which would bring the total for the migrant kids to $48.7 million.

But the costs could soar, because the youths–many of them victims of poverty and abuse–will need state-mandated English-language instruction, free or reduced-price lunch, and a range of other services, including psychological counseling, medical and dental.

“Unless the mayor, governor or president announces that funds will be made available immediately, our already-struggling schools will have to provide more,” said Sam Pirozzolo, vice president of the New York City Parents Union.

“NYC public schools are already failing to meet the needs of the students they have–70 percent cannot read, write and do math at grade level. How can they handle thousands of new students competing for the same services without things getting worse?”

    This is a never ending invasion

  • Alexandra1973

    Let them empty out Mexico and we can go there and have our White ethnostate. The liberals can stay here and deal with the mess they helped create.

    We can build something out of the wasteland known as Mexico. Look what Whites did for Iceland.

    • none of your business

      Look at what Whites did for Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Colorado and other areas after the Mexicans left. Of course 50 years after we create a great place to live south of the Rio Grande the messicans will invade from the north fleeing Tx., Ca. Ar, Co etc they destroyed.

    “The recent arrivals join an estimated 350,000 children of illegal immigrants already in New York state–about 12 percent of the public-school population.”
    One of every 8 students are illegal!!! Probably even a higher ratio in other states! And will be expecting (and probably getting) medical, dental, tutoring, English language classes, free meals, counseling etc, etc.! Truly, truth IS stranger than fiction! When, in history, has there ever been such a crazy invasion!

    • mobilebay

      You are so right, Sentry. I often think of the many wars and conflicts that our country has withstood. We’ve fought well-mechanized foreign armies and tangled with foreign leaders bent on destroying us and we’ve been victorious. Today, however, our leaders have invited an army of poverty-sticken, low-skilled, drains on our economy invaders to come in and colonize. Amazing. Wish I could stick around to see the outcome, but sadly, it will be my four great-granddaughters who will bear the brunt of this insanity.

      • SentryattheGate

        Yes, it’s crazy, but part of the planned take down of a “too-successful” nation! The John Birch Society was correct when they warned of a Communist infiltration in the federal government, media and entertainment! And Kruschev promised to “bury us” by rotting the “apple” from within (by means of the communist worms)! These poor minorities & invaders are the useful idiots in the plan!

    Should not illegal immigrants “pour into” custody centers to await repatriation?

  • See The Future

    Remove all incentives. No school, no health care, no welfare, no sponsors, no church sanctuaries, no legal employment, no driving, no amnesty, no human rights bs. Give reasonable notice to leave, provide assistance for those leaving voluntarily. Those refusing to leave or returning need to be executed. Harsh words………but we are in a war for our very survival. Failure to act with overwhelming force will result in extinction. These actions will not take place until we have nothing left to lose…….desperate times ahead.

    Dearest Yankees,
    Now you know how it felt to be a Southerner in 1865. Sleep tight!

    • saxonsun

      Good one!

  • evilsandmich

    Not enough dead/crippled white kids from central american diseases yet I suppose.

    At that kind of ratio New York is about to go the way of California in becoming yet another third kelptocracy (well, more so)

  • dd121

    Notice how the dems crafted the flood of illegals so the states would be stuck with the bill? Welcome to Obamaland.

    “Flood of Illegal Immigrants to Pour into NYC Schools,”

    Good.

    Keep them in the brown urban areas and don’t let them come out.

    I Imagine they’ll be sharing a lot of space with blacks, so let’s wait and see how much rioting eventually takes place and how many more gangs are formed to fight each other.

    Mara Salvatrucha is a way of life in Central America and gang life is the norm.

    This debacle could be the final straw for blacks, causing the community organizer to realize his biggest mistake so far. They’re being overwhelmed just as they are in California.

    I wouldn’t be surprised either if Hispanics step in and assume black places when blacks go to jail at an accelerated rate.

      I just read an old article on Amren:
      amren com/news/2013/07/race-and-crime-in-america/

      The Hidden Motive for Heavy Immigration?

      “America’s ruling financial, media, and political elites are largely concentrated in three major urban centers—New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.—and all three have contained large black populations, including a violent underclass. […] In each city, the violence and crime were overwhelmingly committed by black males, and although white elites were rarely the victims, their fears were quite palpable.

      One obvious reaction to these concerns was strong political support for a massive national crackdown on crime, and the prison incarceration of black men increased by almost 500% during the two decades after 1980. But even after such enormous rates of imprisonment, official FBI statistics indicate that blacks today are still over 1,000% more likely to commit homicide than non-blacks and their robbery rate is nearly 1,500% larger; these disparities seem just as high with respect to Hispanic or Asian immigrants as they are for whites. Thus, replacing a city’s blacks with immigrants would tend to lower local crime rates by as much as 90%, […]

      According to Census data, between 1990 and 2010 the number of Hispanics and Asians increased by one-third in Los Angeles, by nearly 50% in New York City, and by over 70% in Washington, D.C. The inevitable result was to squeeze out much of the local black population, which declined, often substantially, in each location. And all three cities experienced enormous drops in local crime, with homicide rates falling by 73%, 79%, and 72% respectively, perhaps partly as a result of these underlying demographic changes. Meanwhile, the white population increasingly shifted toward the affluent, who were best able to afford the sharp rise in housing prices. It is an undeniable fact that American elites,
      conservative and liberal alike, are today almost universally in favor of very high levels of immigration, and their possible recognition of the direct demographic impact upon their own urban circumstances may be an important but unspoken factor in shaping their views.”

      • none of your business

        It is very true that crime in Los Angeles has declined sharply since about 1998 when the black exodus really got going. Of course the towns south and east of Los Angeles are getting the blacks so black crime is just moving.
        70 years ago affluent Whites deserted the cities because of blacks and heaped scorn on the Whites left in the cities because they were “bigoted and prejudiced” against the blacks that destroyed the cities block by block school by school, park by park. Now the affluent Whites want the cities back and are section 8ing the suburbs with the black plague.

    I sure Sam Pirozzolo is a Democrat. Well, Mr. Pirozzolo, you Democrats love illegal immigration. So pay for the brats’ education out of you own pocket. Or we could deduct it from the money put aside for your pension.

    These types of immigrants just give white women other options for marriage, so it’s good for the black family.

  • shmo123

    Who would be able to tell the difference if thousands of illegals pour into their school system? They’re already overloaded and the student body has long since passed to minority majority. From what I glean reading articles regarding inner city schools, there are few if any whites left in the system at all. The white kids in NYC go to private schools; their liberal parents wouldn’t think of sending them to the dysfunctional hell holes so many of them were instrumental in creating.

    • mobilebay

      I’m surprised that this administration hasn’t outlawed private schools – Oh, wait! That would eliminate where the first daughters attend classes.

  • Paleoconn

    It couldn’t happen to a better city. They should send some to DC too.
