California is in keeping with the Democratic Platform of treating Americans as second-class citizens. How many years have the Democrats fought to eliminate prayer from the schools?
You cannot even think the words, God and Christ. But, now they are about to an influx of Afghan refugees and they are giving them a room of their own where they can pray. Christians are offensive, but Muslims are just fine.
Joe Biden purposely turned Afghanistan over to the Taliban and packed evacuation planes with unvetted and now unvaccinated Afghanis. California agreed to take 5,000 of them.
Sacramento is gearing up for many of them to start school this fall. I have no problem with what the Afghans will be doing at school.
My problem is that Americans are strictly forbidden to do the same thing. The same goes for vaccinations. Why should Biden attempt to make them mandatory for Americans only?
It makes me wonder just how much of the rules or for the sake of health and how much is Democrats trying to gain control of the great unwashed?
Why do you think we keep seeing pictures of the Democrats partying without face masks?
Elk Grove Unified School District began offering culturally appropriate meals and setting aside rooms in many of its middle and high schools for prayer during Muslim holidays in preparation for the additional Afghan students it expects in the next month. San Juan Unified is offering Saturday school for English learners, and Fremont Unified is planning to hire more translators.
Sacramento school officials have been meeting weekly with representatives from resettlement agencies to prepare for the students. Resettlement agencies partner with the federal government to ensure refugees have food, clothing and housing, as well as medical and mental health services, among other things, for 90 days after their arrival in a city. After that, school districts often take on the role of liaison between the family and social service organizations, offering translators and guidance.
California school districts with Afghan student populations are offering wraparound services for refugee families, including dedicated staff to enroll students in school, language classes for parents and students, and translators to help explain schoolwork or make medical appointments. Districts also refer families to community resources that provide food, housing and medical care, among other services.
