Survey Shows Americans See Illegal Immigration Damaging Public Education

A recent Rasmussen Reports survey has revealed that a large percentage of working-class Americans believe illegal immigration has negatively impacted their local schools. The survey found that 40% of Americans earning under $30,000 believe that illegal immigration has made their local schools worse. Meanwhile, 41% of those earning $30,000 to $50,000 also hold the same view.

The survey was conducted on 1,000 likely voters from February 13 to 15, with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points and a 95% confidence level.

Among working-class, middle-class, and upper-middle-class Americans, less than 10% believe illegal immigration has positively impacted their local schools. In comparison, 34% to 45% say there has not been much impact.

The survey found that 37% of all Americans believe that illegal immigration is making their local schools worse. In comparison, only 9% believe that their schools have improved with the arrival of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) and other migrant children. In addition, only around 40% of respondents believed that illegal immigration had not significantly impacted their local schools.

The report has raised serious new questions about the Democrats’ policies regarding the country’s immigration system and American public education. “What the Democrats have never explained is how our schools are made better by packing classrooms with non-English speaking students,” said Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) in a recent congressional testimony.

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing last month, McClintock pointed to the number of border crossers and illegal aliens entering American communities who are very unlikely to be deported under Biden’s policies.

The impact of illegal immigration on America’s public school systems has been well-documented. Recent analysis shows that the cost of illegal immigration to public school systems is nearly $8 billion annually.

The survey comes as President Joe Biden’s administration has imposed a highly effective Catch and Release network, including a parole pipeline, which has allowed an estimated 2.9 million border crossers and illegal aliens to enter American communities from February 2021 through January 2023.

There have been at least 1.7 million illegal aliens admitted to the U.S. during the Biden administration as a result of policies such as ending “Remain in Mexico” and abandoning the border wall project. At least another 1.2 million illegal border crossers have been recorded as “got-aways” as Border Patrol agents are overwhelmed with tasks not related to protecting the border.
