Obama Tells US Schools All Kids Are Entitled to a Public Education, Even Those Who Just Sneaked Across the Border
The Department of Education has a message for all the US schools: – get ready for a flood of illegal immigrant children:
The Obama administration is preparing the nation’s schools to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations.
A fact sheet from the Department of Education tweeted out on Tuesday highlights the children’s right to attend public school.
It says all children in the United States “are entitled to equal access to a public elementary and secondary education, regardless of their or their parents’ actual or perceived national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.”
The prospect of tens of thousands of children mostly from Central American countries attending school as they wait for their immigration status to be decided has the potential to be explosive after this summer’s emotional public debate about the border.
Around 63,000 children, mostly from the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, have been apprehended this year trying to cross the border.
I wonder how the the NEA is going to react to this, considering they are having a lovers quarrel with Obama now.
This will probably go over like a lead balloon.
What do you think?
