    N.Y. - Hampton schools go to war with town over $10M in costs to teach illegal immigr

    Hampton schools go to war with town over $10M in costs to teach illegal immigrant kids

    By Selim Algar February 2, 2018 | 11:24am


    Not all East End hotels are sun-splashed seasonal playgrounds.

    More than a dozen grim guest properties in the Long Island hamlet of Hampton Bays are populated in large part by families of illegal immigrants — and now a local school board wants compensation to teach their kids.

    Hampton Bays Union Free School District is demanding more than $10 million from Southampton Town for the cost of educating children living in the transient hotels, where no one is supposed to live year-round, according to a notice of claim filed last week.

    The properties have done “damage to the Hampton Bays Union Free School District (and consequently, its taxpayers) in unrecovered pupil costs of over $10,682,923 expended to provide services to the students,” the Suffolk County court filing claims.

    The notice does not say how many students from the hotels attend district schools, but it says the $10.6 million estimate is for costs dating back to 2013.

    The notice also accuses local officials of “failure to enforce the Town’s Zoning Code by permitting long-term residential use of transient hotels or motels.”

    Local schools have been saddled with more students — and costs — as a result, the district says.

    “There is only so much we can deal with in such a small place,” said a parent with a child in the local elementary school. “We’re asking for laws to be enforced. It’s that simple. We don’t want these people out on the street, but we also can’t continue like this.”

    Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said he was taken aback by the legal action.

    “This took me by surprise because we are aggressively enforcing the code and doing far more than that,” he said, adding that he has initiated a revitalization campaign for Hampton Bays.

    “There is a feeling that things are out of control — but they’re going in the right direction,” he said.

    Schneiderman said property values have actually been rising in the hamlet in recent years while school enrollment is on the decline.

    A mostly working-class area for decades, Hampton Bays has in recent years seen an influx of illegal immigrants — many of whom labor for the affluent East End residents and businesses.

    Most of the hamlet’s hotels once served summer tourist crowds but many have struggled in recent years and property owners have instead rented rooms to local workers.

    School Superintendent Lars Clemensen did not return a phone call seeking comment.

    Hampton Bays Board of Ed may sue Southampton to recoup $10.6M

    The Hampton Bays Board of Education is seeking $10.6 million in damages from Southampton Town to recoup the costs of services provided for school-age children in the district living with their families in transient motels.

    The notice, the first step in a potential lawsuit, lists 18 properties where the board alleges the town failed to enforce its zoning code in the hamlet.

    The board filed the two-page notice of claim in the Southampton Town Clerk’s office on Jan. 23, seeking the money “expended to provide services to the students illegally living in the aforesaid transient hotels or motels,” the notice states.

    Illegal and overcrowded rentals have been a continuing issue in the town’s most populous hamlet, with many immigrant families living in those properties. The board says its problem started during the 2012-13 school year.

    Kevin Springer, president of the school board, who signed the notice, declined to comment on Tuesday, as did Superintendent Lars Clemensen. Town Attorney James M. Burke did not respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.

    Last summer, the town hired former FBI agent Steven Troyd to lead its new public safety and emergency preparedness department as part of efforts to strengthen code enforcement. In October, a nearly weeklong code enforcement sweep of 42 residences and three motels in Hampton Bays resulted in 215 code violations issued against more than two dozen landlords.

    At the time, the Bel-Aire Cove Motel at 20 Shinnecock Rd., one of the properties listed in the board’s notice of claim, was found to have several units with bedbugs, electrical violations, missing smoke detectors, overcrowding and property maintenance issues. It is not clear how many families were living in the motel during the enforcement sweep.

    Immigrant advocates have urged officials to find a solution that doesn’t leave families homeless.

    “I have to point out that the people who are in these housing situations are part of the economic engine of the East End,” said Sister Mary Beth Moore of Centro Corazon de Maria, an organization that aids immigrants.

    LOL...then WHY does the school need $10 MILLION in costs to teach these ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    Sister Mary Beth Moore needs to go back to school and take some MATH and ECONOMIC classes in English!

    Sister Mary Beth Moore does NOT aid legal "immigrants".

    Sister Mary Beth Moore harbors, aids and abets ILLEGAL ALIENS and needs to lose her tax exempt status...add up the MATH on that you lawbreaker and see how that affects your "economic engine"!

    CHURCHES ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW! STOP THE CHURCHES HARBORING, AIDING AND ABETTING ILLEGAL ALIENS!
