Vitter: Costs, Number of Illegals in Louisiana Schools Higher than Reported

(Metairie, La.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) recently reached out to John White, Louisiana Superintendent of Education, regarding the state’s ability to handle the influx of the 1,275 unaccompanied alien children (UACs) relocated to Louisiana. Since White’s initial response, the number of UACs relocated to the state has increased to 1,652, and he estimated it will cost Louisiana nearly $7 million, if not more, to educate them in the 2014-2015 school year.
