People Who Shouldn’t Even Be In U.S. Upset Philly Is Not Ready For Them

One would think that the sanctuary city of Philadelphia would be uber-excited about illegal aliens

Migrant students in Philadelphia aren’t getting the support they need, advocacy group says

Zulma Guzman came to Philadelphia from El Salvador in 2019 and is a part of South Philadelphia’s Hispanic community. But she’s had a difficult time getting comfortable as the parent of three students in the city’s public schools.

She said through an interpreter that there’s been a lack of translation services in official school meetings that makes her feel unwelcome. When she and other Spanish-speaking parents have asked for interpreter services, Guzman said, they’ve often been told to “bring our students or children or another community member to interpret for us.”

In addition, she said she struggled to find people at her childrens’ schools to help make her aware of the resources available to her as a member of a newcomer family.

Guzman’s experience isn’t uncommon. In fact, it reflects complaints about significant shortcomings with how the district supports newly arrived migrants, refugees, and those seeking asylum, according to survey results collected by Juntos, an immigrant rights advocacy group, and shared with Chalkbeat.

Shows up illegally, brings three kids, and they make no attempt to learn English, but, it’s on SCP to provide the help and resources for someone who cares not a whit to assimilate? Anyone attempting to apply to go through the legal naturalization process must show competence in reading and writing English, otherwise they will not be accepted.

In the 152 responses from teachers, administrators, and counselors at 56 schools, just 17% said there were sufficient Bilingual Counseling Assistants or bilingual staff members to meet students’ needs in every language they speak. Only 19% said they had received newcomer-specific training that covered more than just interactions with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. And only 33% said they believe their schools are equipped to communicate with newcomers and their families.

“Newcomers.” The use of that idiotic word which replaced the also idiotic “undocumented immigrant” is gaining quite a bit of traction. Anyway, this means that schools, which are already having issues, must spend more time patronizing illegal alien kids rather than teaching kids who are citizens.

Philadelphia does have two “newcomer” academies at Franklin Learning Center and Frankford High School that are supposed to help these students. Students in grades 9-12 who have arrived to the U.S. within the past year can enroll in these academies. They are supposed to receive “an accelerated course of study” and unique support “so that they are able and expected” to get up to speed with their peers.

Ashley Tellez is a senior at Franklin Learning Center and a junior organizer at Juntos. Her family is from Mexico, but she was born and raised in South Philadelphia and has had a front seat to her school’s newcomer academy. She said in practice, students in these programs are not getting the support they need.

Why would someone born in SCP need to go to a newcomer school? Should she not have already learned English and assimilated? This is a big problem with illegals: they expect the U.S. to accommodate them, and teach their children the same.

  1. Professor Hale says:

    It is Unconscionable for the Biden/Clinton/Obama/Rice administration to institute a policy of open borders and not put in place the social infrastructure to support that decision. The chaos at teh Southern border is not a random act of God. Democrats invited aliens from all over the world to come here and made zero provision for them to actually accept that invitation. Not enough immigration judges, temporary housing, induction centers, social integration services or even tracking in an age when tracking for the rest of the population is unavoidable. But such planning ahead would require congressional approval and congress explicitely did not approve. So the Democrats decided to ignore the laws, the courts and the American people and do it anyway, without regard to adherence to even the most basic principles of a democratically elected government.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The good Professor makes some valid points. He’s calling for more immigration judges, temporary housing, induction centers and social integration services, all of which ex-president trump “vetoed”.

      What the Professor misses is that deteriorating conditions in Central and South America contribute to the migrations. The physical environments, crime, loss of jobs, drug wars, crop failures, crappy governments (theirs and ours!) are contributing.

      What laws are the Democrats ignoring? Our refugee and asylum laws are clear.

      It appears the good Professor another victim as the MAGAt/MAPAt cult “misinformates” and “disinformates” us. Thank linguist trump for giving us the verb forms for misinformation! covfefe

        More pedantic twaddle from the Rimjob.

      • Brother John says:

        Why spend stupid money we don’t have on judges, housing, induction centers and social integration services — absolutely NONE OF WHICH benefits the American people — and instead spend 15% of that on loading these people onto cargo ships and unloading them on some other continent, and making the southern border so secure that nothing larger than a fox can live to cross it?

        Your solutions are bullshit and good for elected Democrats and foreigners. Mine are effective and good for Americans.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Your twaddle is showing!

          Why not just shoot all the immigrants? Faster, cheaper and more effective than rounding them up and loading on cargo ships.

          • Brother John says:

            Well, since the “Brandon “administration’s” excuse is that they’ve got no money to do their jobs properly, then fine, if that’s what it takes.

            At the very least, the border should be the most heavily defended and fortified frontier on the planet.

            How about trying a real response sometime, instead of just snarky bullshit?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            BroJo twaddle.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    How could Ms Guzman be “illegal” since she arrived in 2019 during the iron-fisted reign of president Trump?

    Does Mr Teach have any notion at all about the legal status of Ms Guzman?

    Mr Teach and “Americans” like him seem to want the United States to tighten the refugee and asylum laws, as does the US Senate, but Trump’s boi in the House blocked it for his Master.

    It’s almost as if the Donnie and his MAPAts WANT a border crisis!!!

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Why was genocide Joe the pedo master holding a $500,000 gala last night while trump was visiting the widow of a fallen hero? We realize that you do not acknowledge military, police or firemen as heroes because that would require you to recognize some of our own contributors as such and that would cause you to vomit. Besides leftists are too weak to ever be heroes. Name a famous leftist hero. I guess you could consider Adolf and uncle Joe is leftist heroes.

      I’m curious that since biden’s popularity is lower than the balls on a worm how do you plan upon stealing the 2024 election this time? You gonna do another fake pandemic or you gonna start another war? Perhaps set your negro rioters out in the cities of The US?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        I would suspect that President Biden’s fundraiser with former two-term Presidents Obama and Clinton had been planned for some time. He added at least $26 million last night! That can buy a lot of votes! Ex-president Trump had little else to do, and visiting the funeral was a nice campaign move.

        No, not all firemen and cops are heroes. Some are. Paraphrasing ex-president Trump regarding actual captured war hero, John McCain, “He’s not a hero, he’s a hero because he was shot. I like people who weren’t shot, okay? I hate to tell you.” One the other hand, nearly all of our troops are heroes because of their sacrifices just to be in our military.

        Of course, our hero Mr Trump said that not getting an STD in the 70s was his “personal Vietnam”. “It’s amazing, I can’t even believe it. I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world, it is a dangerous world out there. It’s like Vietnam, sort of. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider.” He further elaborated to Howard Stern, calling women’s vaginas “potential landmines”.

        Rosa Parks was a hero. Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King Jr, Abraham Lincoln, JFK, FDR, Liz Cheney, Harriet Tubman, Susan B Anthony, Jefferson, John Lewis, John Kerry… But most American heroes are not famous. They get up, take care of their kids, go to work as firefighters, police officers, school teachers, store clerks, mechanics, doctors, nurses, dentists, carpenters, plumbers, garbage collectors, electricians, tree trimmers, gardeners, farmers, bus drivers and factory workers – they go home, take care of their kids, get up the next day and do it again.

        Polls don’t determine elections, votes do. The key in the 2024 election will be the turnout in PA, NC, MI, VA, AZ and WI. The few hundred million USD that President Biden has will be used to Get Out the Vote (GOTV) in those states.

        Hitler and Mussolini were right-wingers, as is The Donald. But yes, some of the worst were communists like Stalin and Mao whose bloodbaths murdered 10s of millions of their own citizens!

        In the US those dang modern liberals have left universal suffrage, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Voting Rights and Civil Rights Acts, Affordable Care Act, same-sex marriage, progressive taxation, trans rights, public education, abolishing capital punishment, environmental protection etc in their wakes.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          More nonsensical pedantic twaddling from the Rimjob.

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          First of all president trump was invited by the widow to come to them service Biden was not. That should tell you something right there and it was a campaign move then the widow did it. You calling the widow a liar? Probably because she’s conservative.

          BTW most of those loosers you named are hardly heroes. Maybe Jefferson JFK. But nowadays leftist heroes are always mass murderers. You know like a Workman and the guy who ran the the huge abortion clinic and people like that of course that would include Biden because he’s killed a lot of people.

          But it’s nice of you to point out that there’s filthy leftist are collecting $28 million instead of doing what they’re supposed to be doing and governing and the guy who’s not in power is governing and going around to see the people who need his help interesting isn’t it you guys are so compassionate ha ha ha ha ha.

          At least the Democrats are now proving that they’re all for the big guys and the millionaires and the rich with $500,000 a plate extravaganzas. They could have put that $28 million toward feeding the poor. But they can manufacture votes without feeding them so screw them.

          Those who now control our government, the criminal justice system, the media, and who are now the sole arbiters of right and wrong, and really good and evil, are themselves the greatest enemy of the United States. Far more than even Islam, the ChiComs, and the globalists. Probably because to one extent or another, they share the same goal: the destruction of America and nearly 2,000 years of societal and civilizational advancement from tyranny to individual liberty. If they achieve that goal by rotting our culture out from within, working in league with our mortal enemies or some combination of both, the end result is the same.

          “American exceptionalism” is not a boast of superiority, declaring we’re ubermenschen, but that our government and society as it was founded and intended was the exception to all others that came before it. One that was based on the “revolutionary” notion of putting the individual at the top of the heap and a government that was limited in its scope and power, to guarantee and safeguard the rights and liberties of the individual citizen.

          We sure as hell aren’t that now, and haven’t been that way for a long time. And now because of a combination of factors, the illusion “that our flag was still there” has been completely exploded. The actions of the junta against We The People are undeniable. We’re still enough of a threat to them, electoral and judicial shenanigans notwithstanding, by our mere presence that they have no compunction to resort “by any means necessary” whatsoever in preventing us from even trying to reverse course.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Don’t assume all conservaturds are liars just because your conservaturd in chief is. Officer Tiller’s widow is likely a very fine person.

            Do you think the MAGA/MAPA campaign alerted the media? LOL.

            New FBI statistics related earlier this month showed that overall violent crime in the U.S. dropped again last year, continuing a downward trend after a pandemic-era spike. The FBI data found murders dropped 13% in the last three months of 2023 compared with the same period the year before, and violent crime overall was down 6%.

            Meanwhile, the “law and order” campaigner is facing 88 charges (including criminal) in various jurisdictions.

            Why did Mr Trump choose to put the nation through this turmoil by running when he is facing so many charges? Is he really the best the Republicans can muster?? Almost any decent Republican would win handily against President Biden, while Mr Trump will lose the popular vote by millions again, and likely will lose PA, MI and WI, and thus the election. Trump’s ONLY imperative is to win the election and drop all the charges against him!! Guys like you are his “marks”. Send him some money. Vote for him. If he gets elected, he has no use for you anymore.

  3. Brother John says:

    Liz Cheney, John Kerry

    Are you fucking kidding me? Liz Cheney is a Karen with a raging case of TDS and Kerry should have been shot in 1971.

    The rest of your post is just idiotic twaddle. “Hitler was right wing like Trump.” Someday, you morons are going to have to spell out exactly how this axis in your mind works, because it’s completely incoherent to people who actually know history and political thought.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Arch-conservative Liz Cheney sacrificed her House seat and career to do the right thing. That’s heroic.

      John Kerry served in Vietnam on a Swift Boat. Hundreds were injured, some 50 were killed. Mr Kerry could have stayed home like Mr Trump, who was nightclubbing and having unprotected sex, sometimes with 13 year old girls. That’s your hero.

      My brother in law was a lib who was killed in Vietnam. He was a medivac (Dustoff) pilot, who took small arms fire while he was on a rescue mission. He was shot through the heart. He was a true hero and received the Distinguished Service Cross and Silver Star. He knew the risks of what he was doing and went anyway.

      • Brother John says:

        Liz Cheney torpedoed her career. Those she claimed to “represent” in a state she never visited threw her ass out.

        Kerry was a coward and a traitor. He betrayed the likes of your brother in law.

        Your commentary about Trump is too stupid to worry about, since obviously you’re fine with that since the campaign of ’92.

  4. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    It amazes me that you believe FBI statistics after they’ve done nothing but lie to all of us for the last eight years. In my opinion you have to be an idiot to believe that. I’m really sorry that you’re so seething with hate that you can’t even write a cogent sentence disagreeing with somebody without being a nasty SOB. The professor says Carolann has degenerated. you’re the one who is truly degenerated. We can see the panic in your comments the closer you get to the election.

    You know you’re gonna have to cheat to win and you know that we know it. And you know we’re gonna call you on it when you start cheating which you already have done by the way trying to put the opposing candidate in jail and tying him up in court during an election his election interference especially especially for a bunch of nonsense like what you’re doing.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Hi Brandon,

      From where do you get your information? Teach? Gateway Pudendum? Trump? Trump Social?

      Do you read any comments here other than mine? If you did, you’d understand I give it back to you idiots as needed.

      In your brief diatribe you referred to me as an 1) idiot 2)seething with hate 3) nasty SOB 4)panicked 5)degenerate 6) cheater etc

      This is just another right-wing hate site. Every post from Mr Teach mocks Democrats, liberals, environmentalists, non far-right media, scientists, children, Hispanics, Muslims, Blacks, cities, blue states, the US government, Ukraine, Palestinians, colleges, public schools, and on and on… It’s a hate site. Period.

      It’s not surprising that when Mr Teach is criticized, his acolytes come to his defense. Mind you, they rarely defend the merits of his “arguments” but rather to attack others personally. We get it. Far-right bloggers have their “posse” in the comments section. They usually have one or two who are attack dogs, and one or two who try to make literate, even logical, arguments but are limited by rigid ideology.

      No offense, but to me it’s like watching a band of violent primates trying to create a primitive society based on brute force – entertaining but potentially a threat to humans.

  5. Brother John says:


    From where do you get your information? Twitter? Facebook? Yahoo News? CNN? MSNBC? Major networks? The NYT? None of them are any better than Q-Anon. None of them.

    Talking of “hate” is just buzz words for children. It’s not to be taken seriously. What looks to you like an “attack” is just a response to your nonsense, since at least half of it is off-topic bitching and most of the rest is fables and lies. Get over yourself.

    If you want your band of violent primates, just look at what nearly 100 years of Democrat leadership has done to major cities all across the country, and what streams across the border.

    But that’s “haaaaaate,” isn’t it? Waaahhhhh!
