“Democratic politicians and the liberal media made the first day of school all about welcoming migrant children. That’s sheer propaganda. Parents deserve the truth. The migrant surge is a disaster for their kids. The surge will worsen our education system’s twin failures: plunging math and reading scores and the failure to ensure newly arriving kids learn English so they can succeed too. Kimberly Carchipulla, who came from Ecuador and has been living at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan with her son, brought him to school Thursday and said through a translator, ‘What I want for him is a future.’ That’s what all parents want. But when migrant children are added to the class, the rest of the kids get less of their teacher’s attention.” (09/11/23)
