There is testing now for kindergarten "readiness" and not all make the cut. I would think a child that couldn't speak the language could not pass the test, but as we know, citizens are held to a MUCH higher standard than the law-breaking illegals. They no longer make them produce a birth certificate which mom did for me in 1954 and I did for my kids in the 70s and 90s.

The parents don't speak English either. Why bother? Call social services, Medicaid, health department and you can "press 2 for Espanol" One office that I called actually had 5 minutes of chatter in Spanish before I could access the extension that I needed. Most stores here have someone that speaks Spanish to call up to the front while I wait so that why they can't buy a certain item with the WIC coupon or something about their VISION cards.

I can tell you that illegals are pouring in right now. Lots of new kids just starting school. I see them coming from the slum rentals a couple of blocks away.

My own son was denied needed speech therapy in southern AZ because English as a Second Language was sucking down the funding. I told them "My son born a US citizen who has NO language is being denied while others are being funded for a "Second" language. I got very involved there learning what was going on with illegal aliens and that was 20 years ago and it it 10 times worse.

Let's just get Trump elected and start the recovery!

And, by the way, when I see 'em, I know who is and who isn't legal with a high rate of accuracy. It doesn't take long to learn to spot them!

Logistically, it'd be a nightmare, depending on where these situations will happen most frequently. It would put too much pressure on school districts just to try to figure out where to put the kids. And if these illegals don't speak English, then you'll have a hard time pulling up enough resources by which to help them.

Really, folks, this is not a win-win situation for anyone. Your incumbent federal government just wants to screw all of us.
