So doesn't that mean that maybe we should ramp up efforts to provide more education?

Most major cities if not all, already suffer from school overcrowding. Sending illegals back and the fewer offsprings attending schools will help alleviate the situation. It is also important to keep limits on the number of legal immigrnts admitted in the country for this same reason.

If the education of immigrants is so important to some, why don't they volunteer to teach in the countries these people originate from?

Exactly! Education doesn't necessarily breed assimilation either which is evidenced by the number of immigrants turned citizens that still won't use English as their primary langauge of usage no matter how many years they have been here.

All studies contradict that. People that have a higher education level are more likely to use English than those with less education. They may not use it at home (which is the measure of primary language) but what language you use at home is personal.

One way to offset school crowding is education reform. Charter schools, more federal funding, and revamping property taxes. Limiting legal immigrants can actually do more harm in the long term economically. We are a global economy. We're seeing that nations are increasingly diverse. Japan and Korea, though may never be at the level of the US, are starting to have significant immigrant populations. Exchanging of cultural norms and ideas is crucial in a global economy.

Sounds like you are a globalist.

There's this thing called "legal immigration". Let them get on the list and do it the legal way.

Except that not everyone can enter legally which is why there is illegal immigration.
