Children of immigrants, many are staying in America illegally, account for the majority of students in 700 of the biggest school areas, according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies, the latest evidence of how uncontrolled immigration is putting a strain to our school and social programs.
Using data from the Census Bureau and Google Maps, the nonpartisan organization discovered that in areas including New York City, northern Virginia and Houston, children of immigrants comprise as much as 93 percent of all students.

“What’s more, immigration has added enormously to the number of public school students who are in poverty and the number who speak a foreign language. This cannot help but to create significant challenges for schools, often in areas already struggling to educate students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds,” it added.
Overall, 23 percent of the population in public schools comes from an immigrant household in 2015, the report showed. It is a sharp increase from 11 percent in 1990, and 7 percent in 1980.
The Democrats, who opened the floodgates for massive influx of immigrants, were only looking at immigrants as voters and not interested with how the huge growth in entitlement programs would impact our schools and social programs.
