School Busing with a new twist

Remember when the Liberals decided that integration in the public schools could best be achieved by the forced busing of students? Gee, how did that work out for everyone? The Deming, New Mexico Public School District has been busing students 30 miles each way for decades and until just recently there has been little if any controversy. The district's mission statement reads.

The Board of Education, staff and community join forces to provide a high quality comprehensive education for all Deming Public School students so that they will have the opportunity to prepare themselves to become productive, responsible and culturally enriched citizens allowing them to meet the challenges of an ever-changing, global society.

In achieving their mission to develop "culturally enriched citizens" for the new utopia of the "global society," the Deming Public School District has adopted an aggressive "open borders" busing program. For many years a large number of families in Palomas, Mexico have been sending their children across the border to attend school in Deming. According to Gateway Pundit.


Judicial Watch investigated this matter of "free" education. For school year 2008-2009, 506 students were transported from the Port of Entry to Deming Public Schools (and this number has been increasing for the past three years). Typically, the students cross the border where a public school bus waits for them and then transports then 30 miles to the schools in Deming. The source of funding for these students is part of the district allotment which is based on services (busing, English as a senond language, etc.). Based on an average district enrollment of 5447, total operational cost of $36,254,672, and 460 students bused from the port of entry in 2007-2008, on average $3,061,712.71 was spent on students picked up at the Port of Entry.

By using Pelosian Economics we can clearly see that by busing in a few hundred students the Deming Public School District has created real permanent union jobs for bi-lingual school teachers, bus drivers and support staff. Further economic stimulus is created when the district purchases additional school buses, books, food for school lunches and other necessary supplies. Talk about your win-win situations!


With over half a billion dollars of stimulus money pouring into New Mexico we can all feel a sense of pride in knowing that our federal tax dollars are being redistributed to support such a worthy program. Then again...maybe we should boycott New Mexico.
