New York City's Department of Education is this year enrolling 2,350 illegal immigrant children who crossed the U.S. border unaccompanied — with "large numbers" anticipated in the future, the New York Post reported.
“It is expected that children will continue to arrive in large numbers in the coming years,” according to a DOE memo to principals obtained by The Post.

The notice comes as the city rolls out a $50 million red carpet for 1,662 minors who crossed the border this summer to escape violence and gangs in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
In the “surge,” 5,000 of the 63,000 migrant kids caught trying to cross U.S. borders — or who turned themselves in for refuge — have been released to relatives or other “sponsors” in New York state. Most live with other illegal immigrants.
