Public school teachers in San Diego are now being sent to the San Diego Convention Center to provide in-person instruction to migrant children being temporarily housed there at taxpayer expense, while district public schools continue to remain closed to its own American children after more than a year.
According to KSUI, “Teachers will be sent to the San Diego Convention Center to provide in-person learning for the migrants being sheltered there.”
As the Biden administration struggles under the weight of a massive migrant crisis created by Biden’s open-border policies, the city of San Diego offered its convention center to help relieve overcrowded border facilities. Some 500 migrant teen girls were dropped off at the convention center over the weekend, marking the second dump of kids to arrive at the location. Another 250 girls were expected to arrive at the center on Monday. The space has reportedly been committed to the effort for the next three months and will house children for an average of 30-35 days – at federal, state and local taxpayer expense, of course.
In a statement, San Diego County Board of Supervisors Chairman Nathan Fletcher called it “the right thing to do.”
“When HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra requested our help to house some of the unaccompanied minors at the border, we knew it was the right thing to do. Over the weekend, we agreed to open our convention center to the federal government for use as a temporary shelter. The city and county will support this federally funded effort by providing vital services to these vulnerable children who came to our country seeking safety.”
KSUI also reports more than 30 of the girls who’ve been transferred to the convention center have already tested positive for COVID, the disease that's keeping public schools closed because it's supposedly a threat to children, faculty and staff.
According to Fox5 San Diego, the San Diego County Office of Education said it’s reached out to teachers who’re interested in volunteering to teach the girls, who are being offered “education, enrichment, family reunification and religious services” through a slew of public services and private organizations.
Meanwhile, earlier this month San Diego schools marked one full year of having been closed to students for in-person learning. Despite having met requirements to reopen, San Diego Unified School District has so far refused to open its schools back up to the district’s 121,000 or so students, even as reports show significantly more students are now failing classes than during the same time frame in 2020.
San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond sarcastically quipped on Twitter about the ridiculousness of giving illegal alien children an in-person education while denying American children of taxpaying citizens the same opportunity (that they're actually paying for).
The San Diego County Board of Education will be sending teachers for in-person learning for the migrant children at the convention center. It's great there's in-person learning for them, I wish every child in San Diego County was allowed the same opportunity.— Supervisor Jim Desmond (@jim_desmond) March 29, 2021
