Stunning percentage of U.S. school students are illegal aliens
A recent report by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed that children of immigrants, many in the United States illegally, compose the majority of the student population in 700 of the country’s largest school areas.
The report, compiled using Census Bureau statistics and Google Maps, exposed an unexpected trend that is reshaping education and society in America.
In areas including northern Virginia, Houston, and New York City, 93 percent of all students are the children of immigrants.
“The number of children from immigrant households in schools is now so high in some areas that it raises profound questions about assimilation,” the report noted.
“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.”
The report disclosed city and county numbers in the “Public Use Micro Areas” used in Census studies, and focused on those with 20,600 students or more.
