Separation of youngsters from their parents at border means influx of new students
from The Wall Street Journal
Some school districts are preparing for more immigrant students than usual this fall due to children who were separated from their parents at the border and others who came alone and are settling in their areas. Alberto Carvalho, superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Florida, wrote Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in June about not being told that 1,000 children were being housed at a shelter in his area. It isn't clear if the children were separated from parents or came unaccompanied, or both.
