(SNews) – Thousands of American children have been turned away from schools in New York City as districts make room for illegal aliens.
When the children of NYC went back to school, many were reported told that there is “no more room” due to the influx of illegal border crossers in the “sanctuary city.”
A staggering 21,000 American kids were turned away to make way for the arrival of migrant children.
A line to enter a high school in Long Island City stretched around the block.
“But don’t worry, a 15-year-old illegal immigrant from Venezuela said he’s excited for his first day of high school,” Blaze TV’s Sara Gonzales reported.
“Not so great, though, if you’re a child, an American child, in New York City being displaced by illegals,” she adds.
YouTube political commentator Eric July notes that open-border advocates believe immigration won’t affect the country because they never come face-to-face with the issue.
However, he warns that America does have a finite amount of space.
“Folks act like this isn’t even a thing, right?” July says.
“It’s just, ‘It’s okay, America’s big, has all this land, just bring each and every individual over here. These folks are seeking better lives and that’s it.’”
“But they don’t ever look at the short-term and especially the long-term issues, even cultural issues, cultural conflict, that can and has stemmed from this,” he adds.
YouTuber John Doyle agrees, noting that cities like NYC don’t have the infrastructure to handle large influxes of migrants.
“We don’t need this many people,” Doyle says.
“They’re clogging up the housing markets, the highway system.”
“That’s not why we built this country.
“We didn’t build it for Venezuelans, we built it for Americans.
“I’m sorry, but like, that just happens to be the case,” he adds.
Gonzales acknowledges that those who disagree might believe it’s not a compassionate way to look at the situation.
However, she notes that they are overlooking those who were born and raised in America and actually need that compassion.
“We’ve got all of these homeless people who are being displaced again in New York City,” she says.
“We’re choosing as a nation to not be compassionate to our own in exchange for being compassionate for citizens of other countries.”
