Department of Education:
Unaccompanied Illegal Immigrant
Minors ´Entitled to´ Public Education

Breitbart Big Government, by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/11/2014 5:36:30 PM

The Department of Education released a fact sheet Monday about the availability of public school education for undocumented immigrant children — specifically the tens of thousands unaccompanied minors who have recently entered the U.S. illegally. “We have begun to receive inquiries regarding educational services for a specific group of immigrant children who have been in the news – children from Central America who have recently crossed the U.S. - Mexico border,” the Department of Education explains. “This new fact sheet provides information to help education leaders better understand the responsibilities of States and local educational agencies (LEAs) in connection with

Can´t find that in the Constitution. Then again, can´t find the Dept of Ed in the Constitution either so it looks like both party´s are illegal.

And who paid the school district taxes that support public education.....not theirs.

They need to be sent back to their own country and complete the steps to immigrate to the USA.

That is the fact. Its really time to start reeling in these Federal Agencies. Dept. of Education is as worthless and the EPA.

Which means that these illegals are also entitled to free school meals, free bus service, free books, free school counseling, free medical services, free computers, free Cinco de Mayo tee shirts, and everything else that public schools provide to tax paying families. Got to question the sanity of a country to have a government and its court system looking out for people who have broken our laws and ignored our status as a sovereign country.

They´re entitled to be deported, period. If someone breaks into my home, am I suddenly responsible for their shelter? Send them back to where they came from, and then charge them for the transportation and inconvenience. Then secure our borders!!!! I am sick of this brazen behavior!!!

It is terrible how we are reaping the harvest from all the poor and short-sighted decisions made by former legislators and Presidents. The formation of the DOE --huge mistake. The GOP refusing to fight the fight necessary to abolish this employment agency for liberal educators -- just as big a mistake. Conservatives warned decades ago that the Department of Education was moving us quickly toward Washington-centered decision-making for all local public schools. Did the GOP listen? Nah. It would have been so much easier to downsize it at least long ago. Yes, the table was set for a Barack Obama quite a long time ago. Now - this stunning article lays out where we are in 2014. The media as well as D.C. just yawn at the Constitution. The taxpayers are told we owe the world´s children a free education.

Defund the Cabinet level Dept. of ´Education´ asap!!! Public education in this country has gone downhill since this bad central-planning Dept. began a few decades ago!!! -Horrible concept in the first place.

early American history is no longer even required but American taxpayers are still funding this regulated/regimented BIG Gov´t. overreach. Public education flourished when decisions were made at the local and State level.

Department of Education has nothing to do this at all. Sure if given ammesty, illegals would no longer be illegals so they would be able to attend public schools. As for entitled to an education, even tax payers are not entitled to that, has to be earned. As far as the DOE is concerned illegals are being permitted to illegally cross the boardor everyday to attend schools illegally so this is not anything new for them.

Perhaps they are "entitled" in their own country, just not in the USA.
We tax paying citizens are not going to tolerate demands from illegals. Time for them to go home. They have worn out the welcome mat and there will NEVER be good will for people who break our laws to get here, and demand our resources and demonstrate and wave their flags in our faces. GO HOME.

All these "rights" for illegal alien children came about as the result of a US Supreme Court case of a couple of decades ago, which essentially said that until those children are removed out of the USA they have the "right" to a free public education. It does not matter if the individual school district across the country have to raise up taxes to build new schools, and to hire teachers who can effectively communicate with the illegal alien children. Right now the only way those illegal alien children can be kept out of the public schools is to deport them and that is about the last thing that Obama and his very liberal administrative immigration courts are going to do. The only way the states can get any relief is to send another case up to the US Supreme Court and hope they get a new more favorable decision. If not as it stands now 50 million illegal alien children could come here, and all the school district where they land could do is raise up more taxes to build enough schools and hire enough of the right kind of teachers. Don´t think that the Obama Administration did not know all that when they and their political allies, the very liberal Mexico and Central American centric ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups who contrived this latest mass influx of young illegal aliens with assistance Mexico and the Banana Republic governments who want to see the effectiveness of the US borderline greatly diminished so that they can dump their criminal and surplus population groups into the USA.

Ok lets try that one on for size. Open border and we owe the children an education.

There are about 1 billion children living in poverty on the planet. http://www.globalissues.org/article/26/poverty-facts-and-stats

Since we haven´t defined limits as to who comes in and who gets the entitlement I´m free to argue that the assertion is we owe 1 billion children a "free" education.

The annual cost of a public education is about $10,000. http://www.governing.com/gov-data/education-data/state-education-spending-per-pupil-data.html

That´s 10 Trillion we owe annually or about $30,000 for every man woman and child in the US. Or if you prefer that´s about $90,000 for every "working age" American.

Can we rid ourselves of this entitlement presumption and begin a serious conversation?

How is invasion of dependent "children" (a majority of whom are boys over 15 years old with gang tattoos) any less of a financial/social drain on this country than an invading army that blows up infrastructure??

Criminal alien invaders are entitled to "3 hots and a cot" in a detention center only so long as it takes to get their deportation hearing scheduled. They´re entitled to emergency medical care/first aid only as far as necessary to get them to the deportation hearing. They are entitled to giving up biometric identifying data so they can be identified if/when they attempt another illegal crossing into is country.

They are not entitled to any welfare, education, medical care, or any other program including a "free" attorney, at taxpayer expense.

Military gets ´sensitive´ under Obama
The Hill (Washington DC), by Tim Devaney    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/20/2014 9:56:26 AM     Post Reply
The military is growing more “sensitive” under the Obama administration, Pentagon observers say, by relaxing long-standing restrictions on soldiers’ religious and personal liberties. The efforts by the Defense Department to adapt to cultural change go beyond the moves to end the controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and allow women in combat. In recent weeks, the Pentagon has backed off controversial hairstyle regulations that critics said discriminated against black women and made the phrase “so help me god” optional in the oath for airmen. Earlier this year, the military loosened its rules for soldiers who want to wear turbans or

Not the ones on breathing tubes suffering from Enterovirus 68, mind you, but non-contagious patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. After admitting that she dislikes “selfies” but agreeing to be part of an “ussie,” and after discussing flying her dogs around on Air Force One, the first lady became painfully honest.

WASHINGTON – A look at four Americans who became jihadis, and what motivated them to fight: Moner Mohammad Abusalha, who liked to cuddle cats, blew himself up in May in Syria. He was the first American suicide bomber in that civil war. Abusalha, 22, was a community college student who grew up playing basketball in Vero Beach, Florida. But Abusalha, the son of a Palestinian father and Italian-American mother, became increasingly consumed with religious fervor. He said he was influenced by a close, radical friend, according to a video he made before he killed himself and 16 others while fighting

One of America’s most patriotic beers has defected. A Russian company has purchased Pabst Blue Ribbon, an iconic brew that’s been in production in the U.S. since 1844. New York aficionados of the beer — traditionally sold with a red-white-and-blue label — said “nyet” to the news when it was announced Friday. “I don’t think I will ever f-----g drink another Pabst Blue Ribbon in my entire life,” said construction worker Danny Kelly, 34. “That is an American company, it is an American beer for God knows how many years and now it’s going over to Russia.

The craft did not enter United States or Canadian airspace, but were located in an Air Defense Identification Zone that sits roughly 200 miles from the Alaskan coast, Smith said.

Roberts told an audience at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law that the partisan atmosphere in Washington would make it unlikely for justices such as Antonin Scalia, widely viewed as a conservative, or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is seen as liberal, to win confirmation today.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

(Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.
