POLL: Should U.S. taxpayers have to fund education for illegal alien children?
U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos stirred up a firestorm from the left on Tuesday, after she stated during a House committee hearing that it should be up to the local school as to whether they would report undocumented students and their families to ICE.
Outraged Democrats, including the ACLU, slammed DeVos for the statement, saying any school who reports a child to ICE would violate the Constitution.
Civil rights and pro-immigrant advocates point back to the Supreme Court’s decision in Plyler v. Doe, saying that ruling “made clear … that public schools have a constitutional obligation to provide schooling for children, regardless of immigration status.”
When interviewed about why they come to America, many illegal aliens have stated it’s because they want their children to get a good education.
