Lawlessness run amuck…Yes, Los Angeles Schools are a safe haven for illegals. Pull funding or let these ICE agents do their job. California is broke already but the illegals are draining the budget big time Do you know the cost to your state for illegals? Here’s the report for California:
THE COST TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR ILLEGALS IS ASTOUNDING -$25.3 BILLION IN 2014!
HERE’S THE REPORT FROM 2014:
Californians bear an enormous fiscal burden as a result of an illegal alien population estimated at almost 3 million residents. The annual expenditure of state and local tax dollars on services for that population is $25.3 billion. That total amounts to a yearly burden of about $2,370 for a household headed by a U.S. citizen.
Nearly half of those expenditures ($12.3 billion) result from the costs of K-12 education for the children of illegal aliens — both those illegally in the country and those born in the United States. Another major outlay ($2.1 billion) results from the need to provide supplemental English language instruction to Limited English Proficient students, many of whom are children of illegal aliens. Together, these educational costs are 57.1 percent of total expenditures.
Other fiscal outlays result from the costs of medical care ($4.0 billion), public assistance services ($800 million), administration of justice functions ($4.4 billion), and general governmental services ($1.6 billion).
The school board of the Los Angeles Unified School District unanimously adopted a resolution on Tuesday that bans US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from coming onto school property without permission — a move meant to signal to immigrant students and their families that they are secure while on campus.
ICE agents haven’t attempted to look for students at the district’s schools, but board members said that some families expressed concern after ICE detained more than 120 people last month in raids across the country that were meant to identify and deport illegal immigrants. This sparked rumors that raids were planned on Los Angeles schools, prompting LA Unified Superintendent Michelle King to issue a statement that said, “Neither the Los Angeles Unified School District nor the Los Angeles School Police Department is aware of any planned raids or other action by Immigration and Customs Enforcement at any LA Unified school site. The District welcomes all students and all families and is committed to supporting their right to live, learn and work in their communities.”
LAUSD is the country’s largest school district by enrollment, and has frequently advocated on behalf of its immigrant students, including calling on the federal government to pass immigration reform legislation.
Steve Zimmer, president of the LAUSD Board of Education, said that he and the other board members wanted to reassure worried families in passing the resolution.
“The vitriol and hate that presently permeates the immigration debate, combined with a regrettable change in US Immigration and Customs Enforcement practices, made it necessary for the Board of Education to take a strong stand in solidarity with our families and our communities,” Zimmer said in a statement released after the vote. “Our message is simple and direct: our schools are safe, welcoming and embracing for all families.”
