Eric Holder’s Justice Department, along with the Department of Education, have decided that they need to forcefully remind public schools around the nation that they’re required to provide the children of illegal aliens with an education.
The letter was a bold move by the federal government to let schools know what the existing guidelines are, saying that the agencies are “aware of student enrollment practices that may chill or discourage the participation, or lead to the exclusion, of students.”
It also reminds administrators how loose the restrictions are surrounding the documentation requirements for acceptance into public schools.
The last guidance letter that was sent out was in 2011, and the latest one stresses the need for “flexibility when it comes to what types of documents schools can accept as well as lists off the guidelines for them.
According to KGWN, “While schools may accept a parents’ drivers license as evidence, they may not require it to establish residency since it would unlawfully bar a student whose parents in the U.S. illegally and do not have a drivers’ license.”
“We want to be sure every school leader understand the legal requirements under the Constitution and federal laws,” the letter states, “and it is our hope that this update will address some of the misperceptions out there.”
Eric Holder said that he would “vigilantly enforce the law to ensure the schoolhouse door remains open to all.”
Administrators aren’t allowed under any circumstances to inquire about a student’s immigration or citizenship status or they’ll face the wrath of the Justice Department.
While many will be outraged about the letter and forceful intentions behind it, nobody should really be surprised considering both Obama and his gang of liberal followers will do everything within their power to assure that illegals are integrated into our society.
“The message here is clear,” the letter read, “let all children who live in your district enroll in your public schools.”
Should we be paying for the children of illegals to go to school when the Obama Administration has done nothing to secure the borders? Let us know with a comment!
