Nearly 1 in 3 schoolchildren in CA are illegal or don’t speak English…

They’re really cute! You want them to have the best life and best opportunities possible, but a United States with “open borders” is not the answer.
And CA Governor Jerry Brown is an IDIOT!! His DNC-run state now has the highest poverty rate in the nation. 30% are undocumented OR don’t speak English. That’s not an and/or situation. That is an odd statement. I would assume that the undocumented ones don’t speak English. It’s odd reporting. If they are undocumented, how do they know how many there are? Do they mean 30% of their kids, some of whom are undocumented don’t speak English? I realize it’s hard to keep up when people come (I’m talking legally now) year after year, but if he’s just talking about the school system at large and some have been here for years, and they still don’t speak English, then the schools are horrible and those taxpayers should get their money back. I thought that CA did away with bi-lingual ed, so that can’t be the problem. None of those things Brown did that he’s so proud of helped at all. That money could have gone into ESL for adults, and the schools probably have enough money thrown at them for each child to be completely bi-lingual in the language of their choice, up to and including Klingon.

During Thursday night’s California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state’s schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English.

Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were “all welcome in California,” praised his administration’s immigration policies. He said that California is “setting the pace” on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act). Brown then said that these policies were necessary because “about 30%” of schoolchildren in California are “either undocumented or don’t speak English.”
California Immigrant Policy Center found that there are 2.6 million illegal immigrants in California (or 26% of all immigrants) while illegal immigrants make up nearly 10% of the state’s workforce, including “38% of the agriculture industry and 14% of the construction industry.”
28% of Californians were born outside the United States in 2012 and, “Latinos make up nearly 40% of the state’s population and have made California ‘only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality.'”
