Skip to comments.Honduran children lead immigrant enrollment spike in Waukegan schools
Posted on 08/02/2014 6:22:45 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Evidence of the Central American refugee crisis has crossed into Waukegan public schools, where 77 children from Honduras have enrolled as of the last week of July for the 2014-15 school year.
According to Sharon Aguina, director of School District 60s English Language Learners program, the Honduran influx has combined with a spike in new arrivals from Mexico and other nations to produce an overall 40 percent increase in immigrant students.
Also contributing to the 40 percent increase are 289 new immigrant children from Mexico, compared to 206 new students from Mexico last school year. Aguino added that while some numbers have remained static, such as the ranks of students from the Philippines, the districts ELL program has new and existing clientele representing some 16 different languages.

Do people understand how vile and cynical this is? Many people don’t want to deport children, so Obama deliberately brought hundreds of thousands in and dispersed them.
This really is a racist takeover of the United States.
Target the funding.
When they inevitably accuse you of harming children for a political reason, remind them that if schools are in such dire shape, those importing illegals are the ones harming children.
Pure and simple- dilute America with non Americans who will breed like pigs.
The demographic position of blacks will decline, until they are a smaller and smaller portion of the minority community (and hence have less clout).
Latinos will in turn demand the places blacks have, in the affirmative action rota.
And, if these immigrants grow up with Catholic instruction, they may turn out to oppose abortion, same-sex marriage, etc.
Changes may be underway, but the results cannot be foreseen in totality at the moment.
Damn that bush and his 4th term. /s
I wonder what the local residents have to say now about classroom overcrowding and property taxes.
There are 10.4 million students from immigrant households in public schools, accounting for one in five public school students. Of these students, 78 percent speak a language other than English at home.
Overall, one in four public school students now speaks a language other than English at home.
Meanwhile, the Hispanic population would more than double, from 53.3 million in 2012 to 128.8 million in 2060. Consequently, by the end of the period, nearly one in three U.S. residents would be Hispanic, up from about one in six today.
The black population is expected to increase from 41.2 million to 61.8 million over the same period. Its share of the total population would rise slightly, from 13.1 percent in 2012 to 14.7 percent in 2060.
The Asian population is projected to more than double, from 15.9 million in 2012 to 34.4 million in 2060, with its share of nation's total population climbing from 5.1 percent to 8.2 percent in the same period.
Among the remaining race groups, American Indians and Alaska Natives would increase by more than half from now to 2060, from 3.9 million to 6.3 million, with their share of the total population edging up from 1.2 percent to 1.5 percent. The Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander population is expected to nearly double, from 706,000 to 1.4 million. The number of people who identify themselves as being of two or more races is projected to more than triple, from 7.5 million to 26.7 million over the same period.
The U.S. is projected to become a majority-minority nation for the first time in 2043. While the non-Hispanic white population will remain the largest single group, no group will make up a majority.
All in all, minorities, now 37 percent of the U.S. population, are projected to comprise 57 percent of the population in 2060. (Minorities consist of all but the single-race, non-Hispanic white population.) The total minority population would more than double, from 116.2 million to 241.3 million over the period.
Projections show the older population would continue to be predominately non-Hispanic white, while younger ages are increasingly minority. Of those age 65 and older in 2060, 56.0 percent are expected to be non-Hispanic white, 21.2 percent Hispanic and 12.5 percent non-Hispanic black. In contrast, while 52.7 percent of those younger than 18 were non-Hispanic white in 2012, that number would drop to 32.9 percent by 2060. Hispanics are projected to make up 38.0 percent of this group in 2060, up from 23.9 percent in 2012.
I think that is the plan. Where are the black going to go politically? Its back of the bus or under the bus. See tagline
It's like Ann Coulter said. If this is such a racist, sexist, homophobic, terrible country, then let's do the illegals a favor and keep them out. We wouldn't want to be cruel by bringing them to such a crummy country.
Not pigs. Vermin. Pigs can produce something of value.
Yeah, I think you’re right on this one.
Not unless we drive their a$$e$ out.
We have just had the two largest decades of immigration in our history. In 1970 there were 9.7 million foreign born in this country; today, there are almost 45 million. In 1970 one in 21 was foreign born; today it is one in 8, the highest in more than 90 years; and within a decade it will be one in 7 the highest in our history. Illegal aliens are a problem, but legal immigration will destroy us unless it is changed.
Yeah, we’re going to deport them, sure. That’s the ticket.
But first let’s get them enrolled in school .....
Waukegan. That figures. This ought to balloon their Free Lunch program numbers very nicely.
