Texas Just Ended It For All Illegal Children Effective Immediately – Don’t Care Who It Offends

Published

As the left continues to evoke the words of Holocaust survivor and author of “Night” Elie Wiesel in stating that “No human being is illegal” in their misguided crusade for open borders, states are beginning to fight back. In the wake of the deaths of Kate Steinle and Mollie Tibbetts at the hands of illegal aliens, it is important to understand just what these people mean with the words they use.

Illegal is defined as “contrary to or forbidden by law, especially criminal law.” Alien is defined as belonging to a foreign country or nation. A foreigner, especially one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living.” By the very definition of the words, these people who defy immigration laws and cross U.S. borders without invitation and in defiance of the laws, can be nothing else.

They are not legally here, nor are they immigrants by definition as they have not immigrated. They have invaded without invitation.

In 2017, Federation for American Immigration Reform or FAIR’s “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers” report put the total cost of illegal immigration at $135 billion a year, while claiming undocumented immigrants paid only $19 billion a year in taxes. That leaves a net cost to local, state and federal governments of $116 billion a year. FAIR estimates that there are roughly 12.5 million illegal aliens in the country.

That cost often comes at the expense of our own children and their education when much-needed resources are diverted to educate illegal alien children who many times do not speak English, have very little formal education, and are served through free lunch programs and other taxpayer-funded services. Now the state of Texas is fighting back, refusing to allow state funding to educate illegal alien children housed in federal detention centers.

According to the Houston Chronicle

Texas school districts and charter school groups cannot use state funding to provide teachers and other resources to school-aged children housed in migrant shelters, the Texas Education Agency said, throwing into question whether states have a role in educating minors who cross the border illegally.

Officials with Southwest Key, one of the largest nonprofits operating shelters for migrant children in Texas, said the agency’s stance jeopardizes partnerships the shelters have formed with at least two traditional school districts, one of which began in 2013.

Prior to the TEA letter sent to the Promesa Public Schools on Aug. 21, the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District had received about five years of state funding to place one teacher and one paraprofessional in a Southwest Key shelter located within their boundary. This year, the Associated Press reported San Benito CISD sent 18 of its teachers and technological resources to Southwest Key’s Casa Padre shelter, hoping to receive an additional $2.8 million in state funding by including the shelter’s students in its enrollment numbers.

Salvador Cavazos, vice president for education services for Southwest Key, said the shelter group has nixed its agreement with San Benito CISD, meaning all 18 teachers will leave the shelter. Cavazos is working with Harlingen CISD to work out a possible cost-sharing arrangement.

Cavazos said most of the students at his group’s shelters eventually will transfer to traditional or charter schools once they are released to family members and await asylum or immigration hearings. Partnerships with education groups would have helped ease that transition, he said.

“I think the ones that ultimately are affected adversely are the youth that are in the shelters,” Cavazos said. “Because we’re in a partnership, we would have been able to provide additional resources, partner with credit-bearing institutions, provide grades and help them achieve credits go to other public schools.”

The TEA’s decision comes after President Donald Trump’s administration separated families under a “zero tolerance” policy for migrants who cross the border illegally. Parents served brief prison time for the misdemeanor before being transferred to immigration detention and their children were placed in federal shelters for unaccompanied minors.

Facing widespread condemnation, Trump rescinded the policy in June, but reuniting parents with their children has proved difficult and nearly 600 children remain separated from their parents and in federal shelters.

That has added to an already high number of unaccompanied children in shelters, an influx which began in 2013 as many came here escaping violence and poverty in Central America. Between October and July, more than 41,300 children have come here alone, according to federal statistics, and usually stay in government shelters for about a month before many are released to family members here. Some can stay for longer if they do not have relatives here or the government decides it is not in their best interest to release them.

The wave of minors across the southern border has raised questions about what role, if any, states should play in educating those children. In a statement, the TEA said that responsibility falls squarely on the shoulders of the federal government. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement mandates school-aged children housed in shelters must have their educational needs assessed within three days of arrival, receive six hours of structured instruction on weekdays and receive special education services if they are eligible.

While the TEA said schools still could voluntarily provide help to shelters, school leaders across the state say their schools have been dealing with declining state funding for years, circumstances that make it infeasible to pay to provide services to students who are not technically enrolled in their districts.

Cavazos said Southwest Key and other shelters already provide education services to school-aged children in their care. At the shelters he oversees, students receive six hours of instruction during weekdays. The classes are self-paced, and Cavazos said the teachers who work with migrant students all hold bachelor degrees.

Michael A. Olivas, who teaches immigration and education law at the University of Houston, said the services provided by Southwest Key alone are inadequate to meet students’ needs.

“It is a detestable lie that they’re being educated. They have some books, they have some adults who are not always certified teachers, but they’re not offering real classes,” Olivas said. “Would you put your kid in a class like that, that is self-paced with no certified teachers?”

Cavazos disagreed. He said that as a former teacher, principal and superintendent — including at Goose Creek CISD in greater Houston — he knows what a good education looks like and has seen excellent teaching in Southwest Key’s shelters.

“We have to remember the structure of how these young people enter the country and end up in a shelter. It is the structure that is in place in the U.S. It isn’t an option for them to go to a public school,” Cavazos said. “I’m not sure it’s such a good thing for them to go into regular high school and middle school, with the trauma they’ve experienced by being in country unaccompanied, without wraparound services.”

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Three Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers Will Testify This Coming Week, “Explosive” Allegations to Come…

“With regard to the investigation, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, into the Clinton foundation, the DOJ designated John Huber to look into this. They have 6,000 pages of evidence that they’ve gone through. The foundation raised $2.5 billion, and they’re looking into potential improprieties. What’s next on this investigation?” the Fox News host questioned Congressman Meadows.

“Well, I think for the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this,” Meadows answered.

The Gateway Pundit reports:

Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive, Martha and as we just look at the contributions — now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year, but if you look at it, you know, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as Secretary of State — then it dipped down when she was no longer there and then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of you know, pay-to-play and that kind of thing, “Meadows said.

Take a look:

In the three years following Hillary Clinton’s departure from her position in the State Department, the Clinton Foundation donations dropped by 90%.

The Gateway Pundit writes, “Hillary Clinton left the State Department in 2013 and it looks like nobody wants to pay since she can no longer play.”

Currently, the Clinton Foundation is being put under investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI for a whole plethora of reasons.

The Hill reports that the Clinton Foundation is also being investigated by the IRS in order to find out whether or not any “tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use.”

Numerous Clinton emails backing up the idea that the Clinton Foundation was involved in “pay-to-play” schemes during Clinton’s time serving as the head of the Department of State have been found by Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
