Democrats once again prove that Americans come last in their book.
With the border crisis continuing to unfold, the aftermath is spilling into the United States public education system.
More unaccompanied children are crossing the border than ever before and the Biden Administration is desperate for places to house them.
In San Diego, migrant children will be sent to the San Diego Convention Center for free in-person public education from local teachers.
But there’s one problem with that.
Many local schools in San Diego remain closed to in-person schooling.
So, San Diego officials don’t mind giving undocumented immigrants in-person education but at the expense of U.S. children from taxpaying families.
Do they intend on reimbursing the families who have children that still have to attend Zoom classes?
The hypocrisy is mind-boggling and it continues to show Democrats don’t know how to put their own constituents first.
And just so we’re clear, it’s great for the unaccompanied children that they’re receiving the instruction.
But it shouldn’t come at the expense of children from hard-working American families.
That’s what makes this so deaf tone from San Diego officials.
Here’s the latest:
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.

I just read this:
"The system is broken when San Diego teachers are teaching migrant children in person, but the 100k students of taxpaying families at San Diego Unified School District are stuck learning in Zoom school," Emily Diaz, an SDUSD parent.

From Fox News:
Teachers from San Diego Unified School District are teaching migrant children in-person before their own students get to experience in-person learning, Fox News has learned.
SDUSD students are currently learning in an online-only format and are expected to move into a hybrid model on April 12, where they will be learning in a combination of in-person and online formats, according to the school district’s website.
“We have 130,000 kids who haven’t been allowed in a classroom for over a year in the San Diego United School District. It’s great that there’s in-person learning for those unaccompanied minors from Central America, but I wish every child in San Diego Country was allowed the same opportunity for in-person teaching,” San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond told Fox News.
“The system is broken when San Diego teachers are teaching migrant children in person, but the 100k students of taxpaying families at San Diego Unified School District are stuck learning in Zoom school,” Emily Diaz, an SDUSD parent, told Fox News in an email.
“We agree that every child deserves an in-person education, but why are taxpaying students put last? If this is a humanitarian issue then who is rescuing San Diego Unified students, because our leaders have failed them,” Diaz. added.
SDUSD spokeswoman confirmed to Fox News that district has shared the information about the opportunity for teachers to volunteer teaching migrant children in-person during their spring break this week, but said she doesn’t know if teachers are getting paid, saying that it’s up to the county.
The spokesperson added that she does not know if teachers will be reimbursed for their expenses.
“The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is providing the educational program for the unaccompanied migrant children who will be staying at the San Diego Convention Center through July. All children in California, regardless of immigration status, have a constitutional right to education. We also have a moral obligation to ensure a bright future for our children,” an SDCOE spokesperson told Fox News in an emailed statement.
