Unaccompanied child migrants housed at the San Diego Convention Center have an alarmingly high COVID-19 infections rate – but local teachers will be providing them in-person instruction before their own students.
Hundreds of migrant girls have been housed at the facility as the Biden administration is trying to figure out how to handle a crisis of unaccompanied children flocking to the southern border.
Of more than 700 unaccompanied girls transferred to the center, at least 82 have tested positive for the virus as of Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services told Fox News Tuesday evening.
All of the girls had been tested before being transported to the temporary facility Monday, with 59 testing positive for coronavirus. They were being housed separately and anyone injured or ill was being treated on-site by staff from Rady’s Children’s Hospital, although children with serious illnesses are not taken to the facility to begin with and go right to a hospital.
Another 23 girls tested positive at the facility, and they were moved to a different floor from the negative-testing population. Anyone exposed but who has not tested positive was also quarantined in another area. Children who had not tested positive would continue to be tested every three days, according to HHS.
San Diego County reported roughly 1,800 new cases out of an estimated population of more than 3 million in the past week. Although none of the COVID-positive migrants required hospitalizations, 82 cases out of roughly 700 is about 9%, compared to the .0018% rate of to San Diego residents.
“That’s a case rate of 10,933 per 100,000 – or 437 times higher than the case rate threshold that schools are allowed to reopen in California,” said Scott Davison, who is suing the state to try and force a quicker school reopening. “Threshold for reopening in California is 25 per 100,000.”
A San Diego Unified School District spokeswoman said the teachers were giving up their vacation time to volunteer at the convention center but did not address the concerns about the facility’s coronavirus rate.
“Some of our educators have volunteered to give up their vacation time – this week is our spring break – to help hundreds of teenage girls who are sheltering in our city, away from their families and in some cases thousands of miles from home,” she told Fox News Tuesday.
“Our teachers have volunteered to help — we are not paying them in any way — because caring for children is central to who they are as human beings. The power of their example should inspire us all, and hopefully many others will be inspired to show these girls that we are a compassionate community.”
The district is the second-largest in the state and the largest in San Diego County. It plans to reopen on a hybrid basis on April 12, combining in-person and online learning.
Let me try to wrap my head around this.
These teachers are spending their Spring Break teaching children who are here illegally, some sick with the Chinese Coronavirus, after they and their bosses refused to open their schools last fall to teach American Children face-to-face.
Meanwhile, the education of American children is falling further and further behind the rest of the world, because Teacher Unions are refusing to allow schools to open and the teachers to go back, either out of panic over possible contagion or the prospect of being paid for doing next-to-nothing.
And, the thing about this is the fact that Medical Experts report that children get the virus at a much lower rate than adults do.
Several states have had children in school since fall while allowing those parents who want their kids to “attend” at home to do so.
What bothers me about this situation is the fact that if the teachers are unafraid to teach a bunch of illegal aliens, they should have the same caring feelngs and consideration toward the children who are supposed to be attending their classes in the school in which they should be working.
I guess, like most Liberals, they would rather put on a show than perform any actual work.
And, like the rest of today’s Far Left Democrats, including the Biden-Harris Administration and the fools on Capitol Hill, they believe in putting America last.
I wish they cared as much about the American children who are supposed to be in their classrooms as much as they care about those who came here illegally.
If they did, the schools would have been opened in the Fall.
