"...the most stunning statistic when it comes to school enrollment is the number of children from low income families. That number has increased by 893,055 over the past 10 years - exceeding the overall student enrollment growth".

Valid point. One might say this is by intent.
The gov tracks every statistic imaginable and yet do not track statisics in regards to illegals.
Crimes committed for example. They know what % whites do, Blacks, asians, and Hispanics. Yet they do not concern themselves with legal status. Why is this? Could it be that this would let the cat out of the bag in regards to just how bad illegal immigration is? How many citizens are harmed in 1 way or another by illegals? Maybe they fear the reaction?
Now as applied to legals or illegals enrolled in schools. Once again they track everything one can imagine. Average test scores, drop out rates based on race etc. And yet nothing in regards to illegals. In fact the fed prohibits schools from trying to find out and if they do they are not allowed to report it. Why would they neglect this data point? Could it be yet again that they fear the reaction of the tax paying citizen?

That added up to 11,200 babies for which Medicaid kicked in 34.5 million dollars to deliver these babies, the feds another 9.5 million and Dallas taxpayers tossed in 31.3 million. The average illegal patient is 25 years and giving birth to her second anchor baby
these numbers are incorrect...do the math.

the story says 70% of the births for the first 3 months of 2006. no percentage was given for the remainig 9 months, each 3 month period could be different. 20%, 100%, 2%...the article did not say and no percentages were quoted.

so if 16,000 total births were delieverd in 2006, then only 2900 births were to undocumented alien mothers for the first 3 month period... and not 11,200 babies. The 11,200 baby figure is for the 70% for the total 12 month period, and that is not what the article said.

So, if this easy of a mistakle was not caught, I dont have much trust in all the other figures quoted...could be just as wrong.

It would be very easy to track illegal vs legal in the schools.
American children now get a SS number at birth automatically filed by the hospitals.
All children have to return the free/reduced lunch form, even if they don't qualify.
All children are supposed to show proof of birth to verify their age to enter the school system for Kindergarten as well as their immunization records.

The data is there for the taking..the government just refuses to take it.
Illegals is a non issued with the government.
