    I would like to point out one of the more troubling trends of waste and damage caused by sanctuary cities. By creating a safe zone, many families from south of our US border have begun sending their children to live with relations here in the US. The result is that the US is paying to educate millions of foreign children here illegally and at our own expense.

    Most money for education comes from the state level of government and the result of sanctuary cities, is that they require a disproportionate of the states coffers for children whose education is really the burden & responsibility of a foreign government. It does not take much effort to understand, how children who come here, only speaking a foreign language, then drag on the resources of a school district and even redirect its level of scholastic accomplishment, as intended for our own children.

    This sending of unaccompanied minors to the US has become the new Illegal Alien invasion. It comes with the emotional blackmail of putting the American government of it’s back foot, as we don’t wish to be seen as indifferent or callous towards children. The truth is, America decide what to do with unaccompanied minors in 2000 with the Elián González custody and immigration story. These Sanctuary cities are creating a false paradigm of where we spend, how we spend & on what we spend money for education. It is being done at the expense of the scholastic achievement of our very own children.

    At the very least, there should be a law that all current, sanctuary cities have their sanctuary charters expire by state mandate and that any city or county that desires to reintroduce Sanctuary cities regulations may only do so through a voter referendum of the ballot. Further, school districts should have to prove that the children they are educating are the children of the parents residing in the district. While there are obvious legal exceptions, the unaccompanied illegal minor living with relations so as to harvest and education that some one else is paying for should be strongly discourage & come with the genuine possibility of the hosting family being assessed the cost to the district.
