"The last seven years have been the highest period of immigration in American
history," the report said. "Immigrants and their young children (under 18) now
account for one-fifth of the school-age population, one-fourth of those in
poverty and nearly one-third of those without health insurance."
accounts for nearly all of the national increase in public school enrollment

If they were showing up in the ritzy suburbs of NY or LA instead of the poor sections of the country, would the response be different?
