Newsmax reports on the Obama administration’s efforts to prepare American schools for an influx of new students who are here illegally. At least 37,000 children have been placed with sponsors this summer. Texas expects more than 5,000 new students, and New York and California will have more than 4,000 each. Newly arrived children waiting for deportation hearings and currently under the care of the Department of Health and Human Services will go to school at 150 shelters located throughout the country.
