Those Who Suffer First Under Biden Immigration Policies

“Public schools will be the first place most Americans see, feel, and suffer from the Biden border crisis.”

This passage from a new book, Overrun: How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in U.S. History warns that Biden’s immigration policies will transform life for American children, and not for the better.

Book author Todd Bensman is the Texas-based National Security Fellow for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

Parents whose children attend public school need look no farther than Liberty County, Texas and the Cleveland Independent School District (CISD), about 50 miles northeast of Houston.

“The ills there take the form of classroom and school overcrowding that require portable classroom farms, sharp spending increases to hire new teachers and bus drivers, continual requests for voters to approve bonds to build new schools, fallouts from language barriers and uneven education levels, less individualized teacher time per student, poorer academic performances for all, and public safety concerns,” Bensman wrote.

Other school districts in America are also trying to cope with a surge in new illegal immigrant students, including those in New York City and Austin, Texas.

Bensman warned that, because of Biden, many more school districts will endure similar hardship. He said residents in school districts forced to take in a high number of illegal immigrant children will have to pay additional taxes to fund new schools. Teachers will struggle to communicate with parents who do not speak English.

RVIVIR reported in December that immigration enforcement throughout the United States has declined precipitously under Biden. The president’s policies have exempted nearly all but the most serious criminal aliens from arrest and removal and have imposed cumbersome new procedures and paperwork for ICE officers to complete cases.

According to ICE records, the number of removals nationwide declined from 186,000 in FY 2020 to 59,000 in FY 2021. Of the 50 U.S. counties that typically have the most criminal alien removals, 14 experienced extreme declines (greater than 80 percent) under Biden policies. About one-third of these high-volume counties are in Texas.
