Since 2021, the Journal reports, “as many as one million children … have arrived with their families or on their own” to the United States …

As a result, public schools where migrant children are resettling have been hit with financial and staffing burdens they have not experienced before. Specifically, the Journal chronicles the school district of Stoughton, Massachusetts, “a suburb of Boston,” where more than 500 migrant children are enrolled in English as a Second Language (ESL) programs — twice as many compared to three years prior. …

As the Stoughton school district has had to add staff, with almost 20 ESL teachers now, and pay for school buses to pick up and drop off migrant children from the hotels they are living in, the financial burdens have been enormous.

For Stoughton, with fewer than 30,000 residents, the mass immigration to their community has made the school district dish out at least half a million dollars in additional costs. …

Researchers with the Center for Immigration Studies analyzed the impact of mass immigration under the Biden administration, finding that in 2021, 1 in 4 public school students in the United States were from immigrant households — more than double the share in 1990 and over triple from 1980. …

Father, I continue to pray for the closing of our border, knowing you are working. May the overflow of children come to believe in you and if they return to their country, may they be witnesses for you of life in Jesus.
