By not allowing education we are condemning those children to life without hope, which leads directly to crime and severe social problems; and we legals will be paying a much, much larger bill than the cost of education would be. Extortion? Yeah, in a way, but it's also a clear choice.

We can't even afford the tax payer's children at this point.

So send them with their parents to get educated in their native country. Hey, look....I have empathy, I really do, but it has to start at the root of the problem. Why is no one discussing helping the citizens of the country they came from so they don't feel they need to flee? We can't afford to help them. In a perfect world everyone would have all the free knowledge they want, but this is reality. So, you think "Heck they're not going to leave, so we might as well educate them?" No. They need to follow the law, as we do.
