Biden’s Border Chaos Damages America’s Schools

By now almost every American child starts a new school year. Many challenges confront families seeking solid formations for their children — from school violence, to radical secular humanist indoctrination, to the ongoing severe harm inflicted by the 2020-2021 lockdowns.

But Biden’s created border crisis now adds to that list of hurdles, as schools across the country – not just in border areas – grapple to deal with an illegal influx that prioritizes foreign migrants above our own American children.

Of course, most of corporate media prefers to either ignore or explain away the broader border crisis that Biden and the Democrats inflict upon America. But credit to the normally dependably biased Washington Post for conceding the intensifying scale of the current chaos, running a recent article titled: “Families Crossing the Border Illegally Reached All-Time High in August.”

Through some good reporting, WaPo secured the Customs and Border Protection numbers early, which showed a staggering 91,000 illegal migrants crossing in America as part of family groups in August. That total marks the highest monthly crossing ever. What makes this dubious new record even more alarming is that it unfolded during the most scorching temperature days of summer, which normally temper the stream of illegals at the US Southern Border.

This fresh record for lawlessness also upsets the prevailing narrative because Mayorkas and Biden’s Department of Homeland Security were supposedly going to improve the optics of the chaos there by streamlining a lot of the mass influx via an online app.

But the underlying reality remains: America’s front door is wide open. Our government not only allows, but aggressively incentivizes, a human tsunami of unvetted illegal migrants to pour into our homeland.

Here is the 2023 data, presented in my latest “Chalk Talk,” showing the steady progression higher this year: https://twitter.com/CortesSteve/status/1699170054858772521

This accelerating trend is not our friend, clearly. So, what are the tangible consequences of not just allowing, but actually aiding, this torrent of millions of illegals into America?

As usual with the leftists, our children bear a disproportionate burden.

Children in the United States already face huge education challenges because of the lost year (or years) due to draconian lockdowns and unscientific school closures during the created Covid crisis. Reading and math scores for students in America dropped by stunning amounts since 2020, to the lowest levels in decades. Nationally, 13 year old Americans children saw a 4 point decline reading and a 9 point drop in math compared to pre-lockdown scores, per NPR reporting. Among black students, math scores plunged by 13 points.

Given the hard work ahead for students, teachers, and parents to try to close these massive learning deficits, the last thing America needs is a wave of largely uneducated foreign children. Few of these illegal migrant children speak English, of course – and many of them are illiterate even in their native languages.

For this upcoming school year, New York City strains to accommodate a staggering 19,000 new illegal migrant students being housed by taxpayers there. Even biased CBS News concedes that the system is “overwhelmed” with the “influx” as the school system struggles to hire a whopping 3,400 English as a second language teachers.

Adding to the insult to American families, this wave of illegal migrant children is exempt from the onerous vaccine requirements compelled upon citizen children. The “science” of vaccine mandates bends for politics, apparently.

Of course, young migrant children did not decide to violate US law and disregard our sovereignty as a nation. In addition, many of these parents make a rational risk/reward calculus to break-and-enter into the United States, because they are quite literally being waved right in by our federal government and affiliated NGOs.

The blame lies squarely with Joe Biden, the Democrat Party, and allies like the corporate media and Big Business which seeks a constant flow of cheap labor. Many of these migrant children are abused, in fact, in the process of crossing a border that is now controlled by the vicious Mexican cartels.

On our side of the border, the open borders globalists debase the welfare of millions of American children, and this madness must stop.

    This kind of faux compassion echoes the holding in Plyler v. Doe. It led to the current morass of no illegal child being left behind. On some level, there must be an active deportation hearing or other state process to remove these people before they can seek out services intended only for citizens, by citizens. Compassion is not a virtue where millions upon millions of foreign invaders are concerned. It’s state-sponsored suicide. There is no reasonable expectation by foreigners to free services, money or any rights in this country. The federal government has abandoned its obligations and is therefore not legitimate.

    Plyler v. Doe should have been challenged when Obama attempted to give legal status to illegal aliens (some in their 30s) and work permits. Not one R governor or state challenged it then. What about now? Where is Ron DeSantis now? How far does Plyler’s holding extend? If 19,000 illegal alien children show up in NYC schools and displace educational offerings and services for American citizens, while being exempted from the same public health requirements as citizen children, is that not a substantial state interest? Public health? Public fisc? Exactly what IS a “substantial state interest” if NOT health?

    That the case ever reached the SCOTUS demonstrates how far down the globalist path America has travelled. There is no logic to that holding. The only expectations which can be considered “legitimate” in any sovereign country are those of citizens. That’s it. There is no consent of the foreign where government is concerned. This is a compact. It has been violated over and over every time a foreign citizen remains in this country illegally and therefore the compact between citizens and government no longer exists if this is what Plyler’s holding accomplishes.

    Foreigners now occupy workplaces, universities, corporate boards, etc… They own assets, farmland, businesses, homes, etc… This will not do. Americans who protest these policies and prerogatives, are criticized and maligned. Such misplaced enmity towards citizens where the presence of foreigners overwhelms the public good could lead one to argue the SCOTUS does not recognize “citizenship” at all.

    New York has extorted homeowners’ property for an illegitimate purpose: educating illegally-present foreign citizens without any representation of homeowners’ property interests. If one’s property and interests in that property are not a “substantial state interest”, what is? Of course government employees for life such as justices cannot comprehend the intangible bond among and between citizen owners, rights and property. If illegal aliens can assert rights to citizens’ property in order to steal an education, what else can they assert? Just administration of the laws of this country are no longer the priority of any court, the judicial branch or any government office in this country.

  2. Southern California (and of course the entire state) has now become a dumping ground for illegals. Where once there were thriving, clean and orderly towns and cities, one can observe litter everywhere. Illegals populate all stores, parking lots, neighborhoods, highways, and parks. A visit to a local Wal Mart might lead one to feel he had just crossed the border into Mexico. Invariably, there is always at least a slight majority of Spanish speaking customers. Our freeways and surface streets, once easily and quickly navigated, are now always congested. Of course, our crime rates, in particular in urban areas, are high and going higher. We in our county, however, are fortunate to have a sheriff who bucks the regime in Sacramento.

    Growing up here in the 50s and 60s, I noted about 5 percent of the population was Latino (this was confirmed by census numbers). I have no doubt that they (illegals) now constitute a (perhaps small) majority. And our despicable governor, along with the solid and overwhelmingly Democrat legislature, cannot welcome them in fast enough.

    It seems clear that these illegal aliens are given preferential treatment. They are often seen pushing their carts containing food and ice cream to be sold in neighborhoods. Further, there are trucks parked along highways which sell food to motorists, food which is prepared, legally, in homes not licensed by county health departments. Yes, the same departments which require restaurants to be licensed and inspected on a regular basis. And lately I have noticed a cart set up on the sidewalk in front of the high school I once attended. Here, the students purchase ice cream, etc. from a (presumably) illegal alien.

    California’s future appears bleak as long as the government continues on its current trajectory: high taxes and going higher; a high cost of living and going higher; more and increasingly burdensome regulations; and leaders who ignore what’s left of the middle class, those fortunate enough to have survived the lockdowns.
