Teachers in San Diego are now under fire for providing in-person instruction to unaccompanied minors being housed at the San Diego convention center.
This in spite of the fact that the migrants have a much higher rate of Covid-19 infection than the rest of the population and the teacher’s own students, who are legal citizens, are currently being forced to receive instruction only online.
As Fox News reports:
EXCLUSIVE: 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.
