For Urban School Children

Across America, school overcrowding threatens the education of millions of children. Massive building programs at immense taxpayer costs have not been able to keep up.

Congress and its immigration policies are responsible for much of this primarily inner-urban tragedy. Since 1976, virtually all the increase in student enrollments in the U.S. has been due to the rise in the number of children of immigrants – immigrants who on average don't begin to earn enough money to pay the taxes to cover the education costs of their children.

Americans do not want their Congress to use immigration next year to add tens of thousands more students into inadequate schools? Americans are FOR compassion toward the nation's children – including those of recent immigrants.
