    Illegal Aliens Sleep Out to Enroll in School

    Illegal Aliens Sleep Out to Enroll in School

    STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — Dozens of families with young children are sleeping outside to try to register their kids for school in DeKalb County. Some of the families say they have been outside DeKalb County School Board headquarters for a couple nights in a row, but their child has been turned away once so many students are registered.
    Nearly 100 people lined up at the Stone Mountain headquarters by 4:30 a.m. Friday. Vilma Lopez and her 7-year-old daughter is a so-called “unaccompanied minor,” one of thousands of children who recently fled Central America and made their way to the U.S./Mexico border alone. She said she has spent three nights outside the headquarters, arriving Thursday night at 9:30 p.m.
    “I want the opportunity for my daughter to study here in this county, but yesterday I had to go back to my house without the space, because according to these people, it’s only 50 people per day,” the mother said with the help of a translator. Lopez said she wants a better future for her daughter.
    Not all of the children lined up to register are unaccompanied minors. Philippe Alexis said the school district told his wife, who showed up at 10 a.m. Thursday, she should try to arrive around 1 or 2 a.m. Friday and sleep there to secure her spot. He said his two teenage sons came to DeKalb County from Haiti.
    “It doesn’t make sense to me,” Alexis said. “At least they could have somebody talk to us.” The district says most students register at their schools, but immigrants, refugees and children of non-English speaking families must register at the headquarters so they can be evaluated. The school district said the evaluation process takes time and their staffing only allows for 50- to 60 children each day.
    The school district did not have a suggestion for the parents, but noted this is likely not related to the surge of unaccompanied minors. The district routinely consists of thousands of immigrant students, making up about 20 percent of enrollment. Students return to school in DeKalb County on Monday.

    You do not generally think of Georgia as Mexico, Guatemala, El Savador, India, the third world, but with the "fundamental transformation of America," the demographic changes are swift and orchestrated.

    Illegal aliens should not be allowed in the schools. This has done so much damage to our schools and served as a big magnet to more illegal immigration.

    Had Plyer vs. Doe been 5-4 against allowing illegal aliens in schools, we would not be enduring this ongoing disaster or the exorbitant costs and other problems associated with it.

    Balkanization coming to a town near all of us.

    More immigrant students swarm DeKalb’s school registration center


    John Spink
    Hoping to get their children enrolled in DeKalb County Schools, immigrant families spent Thursday night and early Friday lined up with their children outside district headquarters.







    By Ty Tagami
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Nearly two hundred families with immigrant children had lined up outside a school registration facility in DeKalb County Monday by the time officials arrived around 7:30 a.m., a reminder of the crowd that swamped the building Friday.

    “We got here and there was a long line,” said Sandra Nunez, who runs the school district’s International Welcome Center.

    People camped outside the building from Thursday night to Friday morning, apparently because of a rumor that if they didn’t register by then their kids wouldn’t get into school this year. Nunez said facility workers heard that falsehood repeated by numerous families. In reality, the district registers students as they arrive year round, though school started Monday in DeKalb so late registrants are missing class time.

    Nunez said the district registered about 300 immigrant students last week. The time-consuming process of testing and checking medical and other documents limits daily capacity to about 60 new students, she said. Early Monday, officials handed out about 180 sequentially-numbered cards. Those with the first 60 cards were to be processed that day, and the rest were asked to return Tuesday or Wednesday. But new students kept trickling in as the morning progressed.

    Kimberly Knight is hosting an exchange student from France and arrived late in the morning. She left after 11 a.m. clutching a card with the number “14” and a note to return Thursday. She faulted herself for the tardy registration, saying she shouldn’t have waited until the last minute to file the paperwork. “The system is probably completely overloaded,” she said, adding that the staff were “very kind and polite.” Knight works at Agnes Scott College and plans to take her 15-year-old charge to the French department to mingle with college students and do some reading.

    Officials have no way of knowing whether the rush on the center has any connection to the national humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, where children have been crossing without their parents. School officials are not allowed to ask for immigration documents. “We don’t know their immigration status,” Nunez said. She said, though, that there does not seem to be a change in the proportion of Spanish-speaking immigrants registering for school. The center has been open for much of the summer, registering nearly 900 students, about half of them since July 29. Another 300 or so were registered at elementary schools during spring registration drives and at a high school at the start of summer.

    The center is new. It opened late last summer, so there is no comparison registration figure for last year, when much of the processing took place within schools instead. However, DeKalb typically registers about 2,000 new immigrants a year, and the tally for this school year is about 1,300 so far.

    Good thing DeKalb has unlimited funds to spend on educating citizens of other countries. Some folks think it'd be great if the county could afford to handle all the education needs of its own resident/citizen students. But that's why economics is called the "dismal science." Someone has to make hard choices to allocate scarce resources.







    Kasim Reed needs to come down and help out. He's the one responsible for 1500 shiny new faces all ready for school. Reed's kowtowing to the great O by taking 1500 from the mess on the border is costing us all. Hizzoner ought to man up and help out.







    You voted for CHANGE and you got it. Now YOU PAY FOR IT. Stop stealing my savings. I want to keep my money. Not be forced to give it to Illegal Thieves that steal it through education and health care.







    The Dekalb County Schools have a teacher shortage. Back in May, at the end of the last school year, hundreds of DCS teachers declined to sign a contract to work in DCS for another year. Over the summer several hundred more teachers resigned. (You can confirm that many teachers left Dekalb County by going to the school system's website and reading the HR reports attached to the agendas for the monthly school board meetings.)

    DCS has not been able to replace all the teachers that have left. I expect the AJC and other media outlets to start reporting about the teacher shortage and its repercussions in another two or three weeks.

    I personally suspect the delay in registering "immigrant" children is an intentional tactic to minimize the teacher shortage. Not registering these students helps DCS hide its teacher shortage for a few weeks.

    Ty's article indicates that DCS has registered 700 fewer "immigrant" students than normal. At the 60 students a day that DCS is registering them, it will will take DCS nearly three full weeks to register all those 700 missing students. While those 700 students are not enrolled, DCS can get by with 28 fewer teachers (if each teacher were to have 25 students in his/her class.)








    Headline should be corrected to "Illegal Immigrant" but that would not be PC.

    "Officials have no way of knowing whether the rush on the center has any connection to the national humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, where children have been crossing without their parents." Well, I bet 90% of us out here in the real world recognize the connection of this "humanitarian crisis".

    The words used and not used in this article are a prime example of the liberal bias of our media. I do feel for these kids, but I also feel for those of us who are picking up the pieces and truly paying the price of this political disaster.








    This is hilarious. All the liberals kids now have to fight for the scraps with illegal alien kids. Illegal aliens get more than average Americans. The AJC is a complete void of reasoning and a liberal shill sheet for Obama. I hope you are all happy when your kids don't get the education and have to live at him till they are 85 because you gave it all away to illegals. HAHAHAHAHAHA







    This will never end as long as this county is providing free education and free healthcare for illegal immigrants. This situation is only getting worse and will continue. The way this country is run truly makes me sick!!







    What a snow job of an article. Yes, Ty. French foreign exchange students are the BIG problem for DeKalb schools and immigrant (illegal) kids. What a joke. Makes me shake my head and say "Que?"







    @ Lexi3.

    Let's remember that it's federal law that all public schools must educate the children who appear before them, as well as that all hospital ERs must treat those who appear---whether citizens or not. And let's remember the legal rationale in both cases: it's for the greater good of those who ARE citizens. Would you want a large group of people in the country who can't read English, can't do any math, and don't know any of the things one learns in school? Would you want untreated people with contagious diseases wandering around infecting our citizenry?








    The problem is not that the department can only process 60 immigrant children each day. The problem is WHY are so many of these kids flooding the school system, and WHY are tax payers having to foot the bill?







    oh well.







    Still don't live in DeKalb County?
    That's a shame!
    For what it's worth we don't mind educating children here.
    Unlike some other counties, we prefer educated youths.








    @Original Prof,

    By your logic, when the cirminals break into my home, I should just say, "Well, now that you are here, I will help you load your vehicle with all of my belongings."

    We need to stop allowing people to illegally enter this country and if they are already here, and did not follow proper immigration preocedures, deport them. It really is that simple, if our Government would just enforce the law.








    Some might ask where Ronald Reagan is when we need him, giving amnesty to 3 million illegals, as opposed to “Deporter-inChief” Obama, with a 2 million and counting tally back out. There’s an immigration bill sitting in Congress that would resolve a lot of this, but they have refused to even vote on it. In any case, the reality is that it will cost taxpayers something. Pay to stem the tide, pay to send them back or pay to ignore them, pick one – Congress has already made that choice by doing nothing.







    @GottaComment - can't stop them from coming when we won't pay for the necessary personnel to do the enforcement that we don't really want to do that much of anyway. Cheap labor is still quite an incentive.







    The parents are welcomed here by the wealthy corporations that want to depress wages. It these rich (Republicans) actually followed the law and refused to hire them, they would not be here. Exactly how many of these illegals are being hired by the welfare riding Democrats? We have to care for and educate these children or we will create a bigger problem in the end.







    A big line of illegals. If we'd require a line at the border, we wouldn't have to deal with this crap. Glad I'm not in Dekalb.







    We're all looking for simple answers, but there are none. Most employers follow the law, and there are file cabinets full of high quality fake ID's that they have been given. The "lines" at the border are rivers, tunnels, planes, boats, trucks, you name it. This is everyone's problem, not just DeKalb's. Call your Congressidiot and suggest that they return from their month long vacation and do their jobs - that would be a good starting point.

    Immigrant Students Flood Georgia School Registration Office

    by Caroline May 13 Aug 2014, 11:18 AM PDT
    breitbart



    Immigrant students inundated a Georgia school district registration center this week seeking to sign up for classes.

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reports that nearly 200 families with immigrant students were waiting outside the DeKalb County registration facility early Monday morning.

    “We got here, and there was a long line,” Sandra Nunez, head of the school district’s International Welcome Center, told AJC.

    The report comes as the Department of Education has made it clear that illegal immigrant students are “entitled to” public eduction and the southern border is in crisis with tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors entering the country illegally — many of whom are later placed with a sponsor in the U.S. as they await immigration hearings.

    School districts are not permitted to inquire about students’ immigration status.

    Additionally, AJC reports that Thursday night people spent the night outside the registration facility believing a false rumor that they needed to sign up their students for classes by Friday. Students can, in fact, register year-round.

    Nunez told AJC that last week the school registered about 300 immigrant students.

    According to AJC, the DeKalb center can only handle about 60 new registrants a day. The registration office dealt with the run on the facility by handing out 180 numbered cards; the first 60 were to be processed Monday, the rest the following days.

    Given the inability of school districts to request information about students’ immigration status, officials could not tell AJC whether the line was directly correlated with the ongoing crisis at the border.

    Since October, more than 62,900 unaccompanied minors have been detained illegally entering the United States through the southern border. The vast majority of these youths are from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

    AJC reports that Nunez said that the proportion of Spanish-speaking students is about the same as last year. According to the paper, DeKalb County usually sees about 2,000 new immigrants registered a year. This year to date the district has seen about 1,300.
