Youth For Tomorrow: An Inevitable Expansion

By Greg L | 24 July 2014 | Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 23 Comments

The federal government conservatively estimates we’re going to have 60,000 “Unaccompanied Alien Children” showing up on our southern border this year, and historically 5% of those children are ultimately placed with “sponsors” in Virginia.  Right now we have program space available through grants with the US Department of Health and Human Services to handle only 1,533 of the expected 3,000 illegal alien juveniles that are coming this year.  So where are the rest going to go?

Right here.

Solicitation HHS-2015-ACF-ORR-ZU-0833 is being hastily rammed through to solve just that problem with a response deadline of August 5th, and you can bet the federal government is begging Youth For Tomorrow to file an application.  The other two detention facilities for UACs in Virginia have no more space, and despite the lure of offering non-profits between $86,647 - $113,203 per illegal alien to participate in this program only three facilities in Virginia took the bait.  There just aren’t any other facilities available.

Under the terms of their Special use Permit, Youth For Tomorrow can accommodate 180 program participants on their site.  That apparently wasn’t enough capacity, as they’ve been evaluating five off-campus properties to expand to and filed applications to the Virginia Department of Social Services to establish two group homes in Marshall, Virginia.  If they’re going to fill the gap, they need to expand their “Unaccompanied Alien Children”program to process an additional 1,500 illegal aliens per year on top of the space they have now.

Youth For Tomorrow has to expand capacity to at least 205 juvenile illegal aliens in order to meet this need.  If they convert their main campus on Linton Hall Road entirely to this program and abandon what they initially founded their organization upon, they’re still going to be short 25 spaces.  Under VDSS regulations a group home can house a maximum of eight program participants, so they’re going to need at least four additional off-campus residential properties that can be turned into detention centers for juvenile illegal aliens.  Should they try to retain any semblance of their former self, they’re going to need a lot more.

Let’s just see what happens when we add another 205 non-English speaking students to Northern Virginia schools every month as they’re processed through Youth For Tomorrow’s obscene money-making operation and handed over to local “sponsors”.  Last year Prince William County Schools added over 700 ESOL students mid-year to our enrollment numbers, which amounts to 70-80 per month.  When that rate of increase doubles, what’s going to happen to our already-overcrowded schools?  How can we possibly handle a mid-year enrollment increase of as much as 2,000 ESOL students on top of the increase we’re already going to be surprised with in September?

Of course neither Youth For Tomorrow nor our state or local governments are much interested in telling us this.  If word gets out what Youth For Tomorrow intends to do before it gets done, it’s possible that their plans could be thwarted.  Apparently some in our state and local government have some sort of personal or financial interest in seeing this happen, as this certainly can’t be news to them as YFT works on the planning and permitting process for this expansion with state and local government agencies.

When is our government going to start telling us the truth?  We’re going to discover the truth eventually, no matter how they try to hide it.

UPDATE: Here’s the response from a spokesman for Rep. Frank Wolf when asked about Youth For Tomorrow’s plans:

“They’ve been operating the program for children who have potentially been trafficked and they are providing a service, and they’ve been doing it for well over a year. I’m not aware of any plans to expand the program at Youth for Tomorrow.”

Is anyone swallowing this?

    YFT responded to the County’s FOIA request and among other assurances, YFT stated that:

    1. They’ve participated in the UAC program since June, 2012. Two years! And nobody, not one person in County government was remotely aware of this? Are we to believe that in their quarterly meeting with the Chief of Police, it was never disclosed that UAC’s were being housed there?
    2. In those two years, YTD aid there were no runaways and no issues involving contagious illnesses. Really? Not one incident? Its very easy to check the Call for Services records of the County. Interesting they didn’t report any instances of abuse as the State Dept. of Social Services has at least four investigations into alleged sexual abuse.
    3. No local, state or Medicaid funds are being used to support these UACs. Isn’t that special! I don’t believe one word of that. Oh really?
    4. All these UAC’s attend school at the YFT facility. None go or will go to PWC schools.

    YFT has essentially changed its mission from a publicly supported charity to provide needed services for At-Risk teenagers, a laudable goal, to one in which it receives federal funds to provide basically a detention facility to illegal immigrants. Why should they retain the real estate tax exemption on their multi-acre land holdings? Don’t tell me PWC taxpayers aren’t subsidizing this function. And when it happens and public safety officers are called to the facility, don’t tell me YFT is going to reimburse the County for those costs.

    Two frigging years YFT has operated this program and nobody knew. Politely stated: boulder-dash.

    I’m sitting here contemplating YFT’s answers to the FOIA and coming to the conclusion: Do they really think we’re that stupid? The answer to the question as to schooling of these UAC’s causes me cognitive dissonance, which is a polite way of saying “Are you kidding me?”. YFT states the average stay of these UAC’s is 35 days and if they average 80 UAC’s per day, that equates to roughly 835 UAC’s being processed a year. After 35 days, where do these UAC’s go? They are between 11 and 17 years of age. They’re not going into the work force folks. They’re going to foster homes where the foster parents can be paid something like $6,700 PER MONTH. Then logically, they’re not being home schooled and the UAC’s aren’t being transported back to YFT for schooling. They can only go to our public schools. Last year school year wasn’t there something like an 700-800 unaccounted for increase in ESOL students? Well, now we know where that increase came from - YFT! Thank you very much sir, may I have some more. The Derecho once worded it perfectly - BOHICA! How anyone on the BoCS can accept these answers as remotely coming close to reality is beyond my comprehension. As I said: Cognitive Dissonance.

    You got it, John. How can YFT claim to provide academic instruction at their facility (and imply this is for a significant number of the kids there) when they also claim the kids are only there an average of 35 days? The answer to this puzzle is they are over-stating their contribution to education, and understating the responsibility they are handing off to our public schools.

    This is a bad situation all around, and I’m probably in the minority by acknowledging we do have to take of these kids. But… it sure would be nice to have local and higher leaders who could at least be honest about what we are being forced to take on here.

    The above comments are great! I find it a tad ironic that YFT is located on the same road that this illegal alien crashed, drunk, into a car of liberal nuns (who no doubt are on board with harboring illegals), killing one. Does anyone know if he was eventually released? http://www.vdare.com/posts/nun-killing-drunk-driving-illegal-alien-to-face-a-judge

    Is it any wonder that over 50% of the students in Manassas City schools are Hispanic? Even though Manassas is 1,700 miles from the Mexican border?

    Several years ago when I ran for the School Board, I FOIA’ed each Manassas school to see if they were obeying the law and obtaining “Original Birth Certificates” to enroll students. All schools responded, but only two schools said they were obeying this law! The rest used photocopies, or utility bills, etc. Many teachers knew there were illegals in the schools, including many being dropped off at schools with out-of-state licence plates on the cars. When I took this matter up with the police department, they said “It’s the schools’ responsibility” (even though there’s a campus cop at OHS). When I contacted the school superintendent (then, Mrs. Pope), she said it was “a police matter.” No one is ever responsible for anything.

    A reality observation: Socialist governments like regulations, but these same regulations can be used to paralyze the government. I know of this because of Russian friends years ago who would file petitions and lawsuits against the Soviet government — to which the government would have to respond, and which caused them to decease some activities. So, question: if a lawyer can sue MacDonald’s for $1 million because some clumsy woman spilled hot coffee on herself, why can’t legal actions be filed against YFT for any and all costs incurred by the citizens for any negligence of YFT… e.g. cost of apprehending escapees, medical costs, education costs, etc.? And also include the federal government as a Defendant for its negligence in selecting an irresponsible contractual partner? Even if some lawsuits are ultimately ‘dismissed’ by a judge, they would cause so much havoc that the parties would not want to be involved in this.

    I assume some lawyer has enough cleverness to be able to find adequate justifications for such action. I mean, lawyers sue people for spilled coffee, barking dogs, clothes hanging on a clothes line which disturbs neighbors, etc. etc. Perhaps a socially conscious attorney could come up with something.

    Of course, the alternative is to get out your check book to pay for the illegals, and, of course, to learn to speak Spanish.

    We are already paying for the illegals. And, for this you can thank the whimpering wimp voters who elect and continue to elect our scum politicians.

    Maybe Congress can pass legislation creating a program which provides grants to communities to teach Spanish as a second language to non Spanish speaking citizens.

    RIP - former USA.

    Superintendent’s Memo No. 194-14

    State seal, Commonwealth of Virginia

    COMMONWEALTH of VIRGINIA
    Department of Education

    July 25, 2014

    TO: Division Superintendents

    FROM: Steven R. Staples, Superintendent of Public Instruction

    SUBJECT: Student Enrollment Requirements
    As you prepare for the 2014-2015 school year, I want to take the opportunity to remind you about certain enrollment requirements. Please distribute this information as widely as possible throughout your school division.

    Residency

    Section 22.1-3 of the Code of Virginia provides that the public schools in each school division shall be free to each person of school age who resides within the school division. A student is deemed a resident of a school division and entitled to enroll in school if he or she is living with a natural parent. A court order or proof of custody cannot be required of a natural parent for the enrollment of a student who is living with him/her. The student is also deemed to reside within the school division when the student is living with an adult relative providing temporary kinship care as defined in § 63.2-100 of the Code. The school division may require one or both of the parents and the adult relative providing kinship care to submit certain documents and verifications in order to enroll the child. Please see § 22.1-3 for more information on kinship care and the other instances under which a student is deemed a resident and entitled to enrollment.

    Questions have arisen regarding a local school board’s authority to inquire into a prospective student’s citizenship or visa status and to bar enrollment to those students who reside within the school division but do not hold a student visa. Pursuant to a decision by the United States Supreme Court, Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982), school divisions are required to accept students who meet residency requirements under § 22.1-3 of the Code and may not deny a free public education to undocumented school-age children who reside within their jurisdiction because they do not hold valid United States citizenship or a student visa.

    On May 6, 2011, the United States Department of Education (USED) in conjunction with the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) issued an advisory letter reminding educational agencies that under Federal law, state and local educational agencies are required to provide all children with equal access to public education at the elementary and secondary levels. In the advisory letter, USED and USDOJ indicated that they had become aware of student enrollment practices that may discourage or lead to the exclusion of students based on their or their parents’ or guardians’ citizenship or immigration status. We shared this guidance with you via Superintendent’s E-mail on May 16, 2011, and this guidance is applicable to the 2014-2015 school year.

    Yes, legally, the school district is obligated to enroll the children even if they are in an illegal status.

    However - there is nothing that states we the taxpayer must allow the children to CONTINUE in the school.

    If we had a Commonwealth Attorney and Law Enforcement with actual cajones and the will to do what is right by the people who pay their vig, there is nothing to stop them from interviewing these non-speaking fresh ESOL students to determine how they arrived at the doorstep of PWC Public schools. The parent / caregivers / sponsors - whatever you want to call them - should then be charged with child endangerment. I believe the Holder DOJ is working hard to close the door on any attempts of local jurisdications to file actual trafficking charges, but certainly Child Endangerment is within the baliwick.

    We need to stop make it so uncomfortable for those who aid and abet the flouting of our country’s laws and who materially contribute to the dangers this policy poses to not only American citizens and legal residents, but to the children themselves who are pawns being cynically exploited by the far Left for no other purposes but for raw power.

    The other thing that could be done is to concentrate these new arrivals into one school set-up to provide the specific services they need and which the far-Left advocates would scream they get, and get by the bucketfuls. There is nothing to state that we, the taxpayer, must provide transportation to this localized center or after school care, etc. Many school districts now require students to pay out of pocket for transportation - depending on the system, the parents either buy a pass for the whole school year or chits/tickets to be redeemed on an as-needed basis.

    It’s time for us to stop being so “nice” and rolling over and showing this anti-American communists our bellies.

    Virginia statute 22.1-3.1 mandates that the first time any student enters a public school “… the pupil shall present, upon admission, a certified copy of the pupil’s birth record.”

    If the student does not provide a certified copy of the pupil’s birth record, then “… the principal of the school in which the pupil is being enrolled or his designee shall immediately notify the local law enforcement agency. The notice to the local law-enforcement shall include copies of the submitted proof of the pupil’s identity and age and the affidavit explaining the inability to produce a certified copy of the birth record.”

    When I did my FOIA requests (as indicated above), I also FOIA’ed the police department. They had no records, even those are required by this law. The police were not bothered by the fact that the law was not being honored.

    I had suggested to others almost two years ago that I could undertake to address this issue, if I had some support, and if a lawyer could be found to participate. I was ignored.

    If someone undertakes to address this issue, and to hold the schools and police departments accountable, it would start to put some pressure on all relevant parties, i.e. illegals, parents, school principals, School Board, superintendent of schools, and the police. (BTW, I am no longer willing to do it. It is clear that there’s too much lethargy around to get anything done. However, I thought I would at least mention that it COULD be done, if anyone were willing.)

    Trying to get things accomplished with the politics in Manassas is like sending feathers to a glue factory.

    PWCGal-Interesting. we should have a “separate but equal” school? We should ignore the law and take it into our own hands? What basis would the Commonwealth attorney or PD have for interviewing these kids? Just because they are foreign? Or because they are brown? What about an asian student? Also, what school districts have students pay out of pocket for transport?

    Cute. It is the local governments which are choosing to ignore the law. I am an immigrant, and I came here lawfully and through the right channels. America is a country that is very welcoming to immigrants from all over the globe. I have no empathy for those who do otherwise, let alone those deliberatively imported by the federal government as political chess pieces.

    There is already a basis for reporting children who can not present with evidence of lawful residency and/or an original birth certificate to be reporting to law enforcement. It needs to be enforced, vigorously.

    Both school districts we lived in in California required students to pay for their own transportation. You need to get out more.

    Charles,

    It’s not too much lethargy it’s too much money on the other side which is targeting and then burying popular, legitimate criticism of government agencies, its senior managers and the Congress who refuse to protect Americans and America’s communities from the negative impact of broken borders and a broken government.

    Doug, things could be done locally, and they are NOT.

    That’s largely because the current regime in Washington is well aware that people are too spineless, timid and lethargic to do anything except complain. And the local politicians bend over to the federal government to acquiesce in order to avoid any criticism or controversy.

    The US was set up for the local governments, and states, to have the power. Lethargic people in local governments surrender to the federal government, and hide behind it, instead of taking action.

    It’s all one big act. Or as Shakespeare once said, “A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

    Charles,

    Things are being done locally and those things are being funded by federal dollars and an immigration industry which borders on engaging in human trafficking. Localities and states are being bought by the ‘economics’ of immigration, much of which is thoroughly infiltrated by organized crime and foreign influence. I guess you can call it lethargy, but money has been known to get people to look the other way, and do nothing even though something is obviously in need of being done. Whether it is due to distraction, getting what one can, or simply subsidized loafing, the moral and ethical impact it has had on our community and state is not good, and just as it is now destroying families down in Central America it has destroyed American families here in Manassas and around the country and looks like it will continue to do so.

    YFT is reaping big bucks for taking care of the immigrants, yet can’t seem to afford basic necessities. Where is the money going? Why is this plea, published today in the Centre View, being sent out to the people of Fairfax County?

    The Centreville Labor Resource Center (CLRC) is collecting donations for the 70 immigrant children and 15 young mothers being housed at a secure facility in Bristow while awaiting hearings. The children need health and hygiene supplies, clothing and bedding. Donations may be brought to CLRC, 5956 Centreville Crest Lane in Centreville.

    #Items may also be delivered during the CIF celebration at Coyote Grille on July 31, from 6-7:30 p.m. “The CIF Board encourages generosity toward the children, many of whom have fled desperate situations in their home countries,” said CIF President Alice Foltz.

    #Especially needed are clothing and underwear for both boys and girls, ages 7-17; white towels, twin-sized blankets, sheets and bedspreads; new pillows and personal-hygiene products including shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, lotion, deodorant, hair brushes, tooth paste and toothbrushes.
    #For more information call CLRC Director Roberto Fernández at 703-543-6272, Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m.-noon, or Foltz at 703-346-6030.

    Yes. Learn to speak Spanish. Seriously, just except the reality that the world is changing and we English-speaking white people or a smaller and smaller part of it. If you want to compete in this world do need to speak Spanish and Chinese as well as English. And accept the fact that will need a lot more immigrants to keep everything going

    Besides a lot of people have grandparents or great-grandparents who didn’t have papers so what is the big deal?
