Comments about illegal immigrants and over crowding at Sussex Central High School leading up to the failed referendum had me investigating the issue a little further.
I found this eye-opening testimony by Pattiva Cathell Ed. D. the English Language Learner school counselor and coordinator at Sussex Central High School. This report was given to the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, last year, in April of 2018.
Her testimony explains how unaccompanied minors enter the United States illegally and are re-settled to Georgetown, Delaware. Most are males, and the general age is 17 years old according to her report, although the age range is 14 to 20 years old.
These immigrants face great trials, but her testimony also reveals the tremendous cost to the local school district and the community.
I am posting audio of her testimony, and the very important 18 page written report given to the Senate and now a part of the public record.
