According to new projections from Princeton Policy Advisors, there could be as many as 1.28 million border apprehensions this calendar year. Of that number, up to 300,000 migrant children are expected by September, potentially wreaking havoc on public school systems in the new year that will be tasked with absorbing them. “Should the situation not be resolved and asylum seeking continue at the pace we anticipate for the coming year, by September 2020, nearly 1,000,000 asylum children could be in the US.” Whether the situation at the border is a crisis is now no longer up for debate. What’s still in question is whether or not Congress has the political will to do what’s necessary. We’re not laying down any chips in the direction of “yes.”

Nearly one million migrant children could enter the United States, either unaccompanied or with their border crossing parents, before the 2020 election if projected rates of illegal immigration pan out, new research finds.
Current illegal immigration projections by Princeton Policy Advisors researcher Steven Kopits predicts that there could be about 1.28 million border apprehensions this calendar year — a rate of illegal immigration that would exceed every fiscal year of former Presidents George W. Bush and Obama.
Kopits’ finds that up to 300,000 migrant children could enter the country by the time school begins in September for most students under a scenario where illegal immigration continues at projected rates throughout the next year and a half.
