Tejada, Violand-Sanchez Reportedly Agree for Arlington to Accept 'Several Thousand' Unaccompanied Minors from Central America



Hey, Yupette,

Latest news about the influx of 'unaccompanied minors' from Central America is that County Board member Walter Tejada and School Board member Emma Violand-Sanchez have negotiated with several Central American governments, including Guatemala, about Arlington accepting several thousand 'unaccompanied minors' and an unknown, but substantial number, of their family members.

This comes at the time when the School Board just finalized APS's 10 year CIP and Arlington County is about to finalize the County's 10 year CIP. County Manager is going to announce her plans for streetcar financing this week.

Unfortunately, it's 2014, not 1984.There is little affordable housing left in the County for anyone who earns $30,000 to $40,000 per year.Arlington's school system is already strained, as is Arlington's food assistance network.

Appears that about 50,000 unaccompanied minors have already crossed into the United States from Central America and 60,000 to 100,000 more will be entering the United States within a year.

It's unknown to what extent the County Board and School Board approved Tejada's and Violand-Sanchez's communications with Central American governments.

Arlington needs several thousand young and poorly-paid workers to serve the wants of Arlington's urban hipster pub crawlers.

Emma's and Walter's upscale neighbors need more cheap domestic labor.

U.S. Secretary of State is John Kerry (previously Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee). His predecessor was Hillary R. Clinton.

Supposed to be a big secret. We're not supposed to know until the School Board asks the County Board for a $75 million supplemental appropriation next year to deal with an unexpected increase in the school population.

Arlington Chamber is so happy they're throwing a Gala to celebrate. Only trendy people invited, of course.

Media Chamber of Commerce boosters (Post, ArlNow, Sun Gazette) are also happy.

The 80's are back. Good old days when a subcontractor could pick up a 17 year old illegal immigrant on Four Mile Run Drive and pay him $20 for 8 or 9 hours of backbreaking labor.

Yeah, pressure was building on the PlutoCrats to raise Virginia's minimum wage. What to do? No brainer. De-stabilize Central America again.

I guess this means the Great Recession is finally over.

Meanwhile, at the Sun Fisette, Wacky Scotty is so happy he's stopping at WalMart to buy a couple bottles of diet cola so the office staff can celebrate.

Several thousand? Is that enough to provide child care and lawn care for all Arlington's Yuppie families?

We don't have tens of thousands of affordable apartments like 30 years ago. We don't have ANY affordable apartments.

Walter Tejada is another irresponsible Plutocrat (he and his wife are millionaires several times over based on their investments in the USA alone, never mind what investments he has going in El Salvador). No way I would vote for him if he runs for County Board next year.

Reality Check: New Urbanism has been a social and economic disaster for Arlington County.

New Urbanism = haves exploiting have-nots. Middle Class pays for welfare for both.

"Education" received at Wakefield during the years I attended (1990 to 1994)? WHAT "Education"?

What's a thousand more illegal immigrants enrolled in APS? There's already a thousand born in the USA non-resident kids illegally attending APS.

APS doesn't collect enough information about residency to estimate how many K-12 students are non-residents.

Thanks for this. I will not be surprised if there is an 'unexpectedly large' increase in the number of APS students over the next year.

Speaking of school capacity, APS Facilities is holding a meeting this afternoon at 2 PM at Abingdon School to discuss school construction.
