The Burden of Plyler v. Doe - Cites

1 Household data is used to insure that the costs associated with U.S.-born children living in illegal alien households are included in the analysis. This is perfectly reasonable since these children would not be in the country if their parents had not been allowed to enter and remain here illegally. Thus counting the cost of K-12 services provided to these children, as well as to their foreign-born siblings, allows for a full accounting the public education costs associated with illegal immigration.
