It Costs How Much To Educate An Illegal Alien Student?
Montgomery County, Maryland homeowners were recently hit with an 8.7% property tax increase, a unanimous gift from the 9 member County Council and County Executive Ike Leggett. Many citizens wondered just where was the additional millions and millions going from this outrageous tax increase.
Here is a major part of the answer. New figures have been released on how much Montgomery County public schools spend on students per year. While Montgomery County is in the 10 ten nation-wide for total expenditures (over $2.5 billion per year), it is number three in spending per student ($18,073). That’s right, $18,073 per student per year for 13 years, or $234,949 for K-12 for one student (there are of course other expenses like free breakfast, lunch and dinner for more than half of all students, free health clinics in each school for non-citizen students and their families, etc).
And yet the quality of public education (test scores, school safety, national placement of individual schools) continue to decline year after year, despite spending these vast sums of $$$. Of course our public school system administrators conveniently forgot to average in the test scores of the non-citizens overwhelming our schools. No longer can our citizen students brag about graduating from Montgomery County Schools to college admission officers nation-wide, as our test scores are sinking fast.
The Montgomery County Council gave us another hint – construction of new schools, more teachers for the growing school population. The lawless group CASA of Maryland also gave us another hint — Hispanic students are now the largest minority in the Montgomery County school system.
Tax increase solved, with the promise of many more increases to come!
With a never ending migration of illegal aliens from Central America swarming to our county, our school system must handle these students who do not speak English, have never received healthcare and who come from families earning well below the poverty level, who are also in the same non-English, no healthcare situation.
In fact, Montgomery County Public School Officials have sadly leaked out another important financial figure.
Illegal alien students (and their Anchor Baby relatives) cost the about 1.8 times, yes 1.8 times as much as a black or white or Asian or Hispanic citizen students to educate.
So $18,073 per year, per student is actually $32,531 per student for illegal aliens (English classes, Bilingual teachers, translation costs, etc.).
From K-12 that figure of $234,949 per student for 13 years is actually $422,908 for each illegal alien student!
Do the math for the thousands of illegals in our public school system! How many of our citizens have opted, at great expense, to put their children in private schools or are home schooling to escape the collapse of our once proud public school system?
Add the non-stop flow refugees from the Muslim world on top of that, refugees our county vows to attract and care for.
It also means our children have less public funding for their K-12 education as resources are gobbled up by non-citizens – illegals and refugees. Same at the college level as the growing illegals qualify for In-State College Tuition as well. How much more is In-State College Tuition for illegals costing Maryland citizens?
This is why the State of Maryland spends about $2 Billion per year on education for refugees, illegal alien students and their Anchor Baby siblings. Costs that could be easily avoided.
Anyone still think the Border Wall across the Mexican Border is too expensive??
The Border Wall, by stopping the flow of illegals entering the country, will quickly pay for itself in lower taxes and outlays at the state and federal for public education (and in-state tuition, welfare, food stamps, law enforcement and incarceration, crime, prostitution, drugs, child trafficking, criminal justice system, healthcare and more). Less refugees mean even more savings for our citizens.
Howard County Executive to Veto Sanctuary Bill
Thank goodness there are still a few honest, law abiding politicians left in Maryland. After the Howard County Council passed a recent Sanctuary bill to allow criminal aliens to wander the streets of Howard with impunity from the law, Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said enough. Kittleman, concerned about the safety of Howard citizens and the growing lawlessness on the Council, has publically stated he will VETO the Sanctuary bill. Hear that Governor Hogan?
CASA of Maryland pushing for new laws in Maryland suburbs and around the state
Radical CASA of Maryland leader Torres continues to control the thinking of Black politicians across Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties when it comes to illegal immigration, funding of CASA and sanctuary status. County Executives Ike Leggett and Rushern Baker (and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser too) walk and talk States’ Rights over federal immigration laws and regulations like its the antebellum South.
Forget the negative financial, social and economic impacts of illegal immigration on Black citizens in both counties (and DC), these leaders would rather stand against the federal government on this issue, even if it means losing much needed federal funding. When it comes to the enforcement of federal immigration laws the Old Confederacy is seemingly alive and well in Maryland (and DC).
Now the Democrats in Annapolis have given the MD Attorney General the power to sue the Federal Government regarding immigration issues without the permission of MD Governor Hogan.
ICE Agents Doing Their Job
A rare event in the former Obama Administration. I am sure NYC Mayor De Blasio is having a fit as this criminal alien was arrested despite the Mayor’s wishes. If radical Maryland State Senator little Victor Ramirez (PG County) and even more radical MD Attorney General Brian Frosh get their way, Maryland will be like NYC and California — A cesspool of criminal illegal aliens swarming our State with impunity from the law.
NEW YORK — Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested a Mexican national after he was released from local custody when a detainer lodged with New York authorities was not honored. The man, who had previously been removed, has a prior conviction for forcible theft armed with a deadly weapon.
ICE IS IN ACTION ACROSS AT LEAST SIX STATES WITH OVER 700 ILLEGALS IN CUSTODY ALREADY!
Mexican Government in a Panic!
Contacting their citizens illegally in the U.S. via the 50 Mexican Consulates across America, telling them to be careful. The Mexican Government openly aids and abets illegal alien Mexicans in our country. How fast can we BUILD THAT WALL??
“Mexico warned its citizens living in the United States on Friday to “take precautions” and remain in contact with consular officials a day after the deportation of an undocumented mother following a routine visit with US immigration authorities Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, 35, was deported Thursday after she checked in with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Phoenix a day earlier”.
The action sparked protests by supporters of Garcia de Rayos and drew praise from proponents of stricter enforcement of immigration laws.
“The case involving Mrs. Garcia de Rayos illustrates a new reality for the Mexican community living in the United States, facing the most severe implementation of immigration control measures,” Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday.
Local “Pimp” Organization for Illegals also in a Panic
Look what tone one non-profit illegal immigrant organization said about our economic and national security. Frankly, who cares if the illegals are hard working? They should not be working as they encumber jobs for Americans. Can we deport their “pimps” as well?
As a native-born, second generation American, who loves legal immigrants, wants Federal ICE agents to do their job quickly and efficiently across our nation.
Ali Noorani, Executive Director of National Immigration Forum:
“Reports of raids in immigrant communities are a grave concern. The security of our nation depends on law enforcement gaining and maintaining the trust of all members of a community, regardless of immigration status. These actions, as reported, undermine that trust, decrease public safety and do very little to keep our nation secure”.
“These arrests and deportations, allegedly including those of otherwise law-abiding community members, separate families and tear apart communities. These law enforcement resources are best used to apprehend violent criminals, not hardworking families. The fear coursing through immigrant homes and the native-born Americans who love immigrants as friends and family is palpable.”
Help Save Maryland Participates in a Montgomery County Sentinel Newspaper Forum on Hate Crimes
Last month, Help Save Maryland’s Vice President Hessie Harris participated in a forum on Hate Crimes sponsored by the Montgomery County Sentinel Newspaper. Ms. Harris, a Black American, volunteered to participate despite the out of balance panel assembled by the Sentinel. It was a Hate Crimes forum alright, with most of the evening spent spewing hate at Ms. Harris by the other panelists and Sentinel moderator! I dare say it was a “verbal lynching” event by the leftist radicals on the panel. Seems enforcing immigration laws, protecting our citizens from illegal alien criminals and standing up for legal immigration and the rule of law is a Hate Crime in Montgomery County.
Panelist Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger- What a hypocrite. Manger continues his stance of defending his non-enforcement of immigration laws in the name of community safety. MoCo officers are not allowed to ask immigration status nor are they allowed to contact federal ICE. Recall that Manger in Congressional testimony last year told families of children killed by illegals that its more important to have illegals in the community feel safe then to protect citizens from criminal aliens.
Manger doesn’t think illegals should be deported for drunk driving offenses, yet last year he was on TV constantly when one of his officers was killed by a drunk driver, insisting that Maryland laws be tightened (they were). Manger also refuses to publically announce that he has been forced to dramatically increase his Gang Squad staffing due to the rampant increase in MS-13 gang violence across the county.
Nor did Manger adequately do his job when a 15 year old Hispanic immigrant girl recently went missing in Gaithersburg. Virginia Police are asking questions about the lack of MoCo support in a case of 10 Hispanic immigrant gang bangers (at least half illegals) that have been arrested for murder of this Gaithersburg girl. Why isn’t Manger on TV pleading for increased enforcement of immigration laws? Do young Hispanic lives not matter to Manger? Hopefully, like County Executive Ike Leggett, Manger will be term limited out in 2018. Maybe Sheriff Jenkins of Frederick County, who actually enforces immigration law can be our next police chief.
Panelist Ron Halber, Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of Greater Washington – A self anointed leader of the Jewish Community, Halber was vicious in his attacks on Ms. Harris which was stunning as Jews have historically supported Black citizen rights. No longer. Halber and his “partners” at the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) seemingly no longer support Jewish causes, instead focusing their attention (follow the money) on Muslim refugees and illegal immigrant rights. Halber is paid the ungodly sum with benefits of more than $300K per year. HIAS makes millions off Uncle Sam bringing in refugees and helping illegals. Yet both were caught completely off guard when Obama and Kerry stabbed Israel multiple times in the back at the UN as they were leaving office. Do your job and support actual Jewish issues. And apologize to Ms. Harris for your behavior.
Kapo – a Nazi concentration camp prisoner who was given privileges in return for supervising prisoner work gangs: often a common criminal and frequently brutal to fellow inmates.
Moderator – Brian Karem – Editor Montgomery County Sentinel – Most disappointing was the lack of moderation skills by editor Karem. Instead of controlling the overblown egos and comments of Manager and Halber, Karem seems to enjoy piling on the hate with the others. Hard to believe this guy actually served a 30 day jail sentence for protecting a source (1st Amendment) when he was a Playboy reporter many years ago. He did not protect Ms. Harris. And Brian, stop using Help Save Maryland in the same sentence as the KKK. You know better.
NEVER FORGET THE LEFT’S ULTIMATE PLAN – DESTROYING AMERICA
Former Governor Richard D. Lamm, an American Patriot, wrote this years ago. Still relevant today!
“I have a plan to destroy America”
I have a secret plan to destroy America. If you believe, as many do, that America is too smug, too white bread, too self-satisfied, too rich, let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. History shows that nations are more fragile than their citizens think. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and they all fall, and that “an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.” Here is my plan:
1. We must first make America a bilingual-bicultural country. History shows, in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. One scholar, Seymour Martin Lipset, put it this way: “The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with its Basques, Bretons and Corsicans.”
2. I would then invent “multiculturalism” and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal: that there are no cultural differences that are important. I would declare it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rate is only due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out-of-bounds.
3. We can make the United States a “Hispanic Quebec” without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently, “The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved, not by tolerance, but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically, and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.” I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with a salad bowl metaphor. It is important to insure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences, rather than Americans emphasizing their similarities.
4. Having done all this, I would make our fastest-growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50 percent dropout rate from school.
5. I would then get the big foundations and big business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of victimology. I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was all the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.
6. I would establish dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would “celebrate diversity.” “Diversity” is a wonderfully seductive word. It stresses differences rather than commonalities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other–that is, when they are not killing each other. A “diverse,” peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together, and we can take advantage of this myopia.
Look at the ancient Greeks. Dorf’s “World History” tells us: “The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games in honor of Zeus, and all Greeks venerated the shrine of Apollo at Delphi. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet, all of these bonds together were not strong enough to overcome two factors … (local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions …)” If we can put the emphasis on the “pluribus,” instead of the “unum,” we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.
7. Then I would place all these subjects off-limits–make it taboo to talk about. I would find a word similar to “heretic” in the 16th century that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like “racist”, “xenophobe” halt argument and conversation. Having made America a bilingual-bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of “victimology,” I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra –“because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good.” I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact.
8. Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson’s book “Mexifornia” –this book is dangerous; it exposes my plan to destroy America. So please, please–if you feel that America deserves to be destroyed–please, please–don’t buy this book! This guy is on to my plan.
“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” –Noam Chomsky, American linguist and U.S. media and foreign policy critic.
