Free Education for Illegal Immigrants

Posted on August 12, 2014

The Department of Education released a fact sheet Monday about the availability of public school education for undocumented immigrant children — specifically the tens of thousands unaccompanied minors who have recently entered the U.S. illegally.

“We have begun to receive inquiries regarding educational services for a specific group of immigrant children who have been in the news – children from Central America who have recently crossed the U.S. – Mexico border,” the Department of Education explains.

“This new fact sheet provides information to help education leaders better understand the responsibilities of States and local educational agencies (LEAs) in connection with such students, and the existing resources available to help educate all immigrant students – including children who recently arrived in the United States,” it adds.

The fact sheet lays out the basics about the undocumented immigrant children’s rights and what communities can do to help with enrollment.

“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 fact sheet explains. “This includes recently arrived unaccompanied children, who are in immigration proceedings while residing in local communities with a parent, family member, or other appropriate adult sponsor.”

  1. The Department of Education is yet another government agency that needs to be shut down.

  2. My grandson informed me that a month before he graduated High School here in San Francisco, there was a large number of new students who showed up in his classes. These students were of hispanic decent and not one of them spoke our language. This was before the current invasion at our southern border started getting the news coverage it deserved. That's why I've been asking people to investigate what is going on here in this city of Pelosi. Doesn't seem to be much interest.

  3. why do we take better care of criminals than our own people?

  4. Odd….we send hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid to these illegal's countries of origin that's supposed to include education and yet they come here looking for free education? So we're paying for this twice? And where does this "fact sheet" get the idea that illegal immigrant children "have a right", and "are entitled to" a free education??

    Bag up all those, illegal dirt bags and send them back, to where they came from.

  6. Carmelo Junior says:

    Yeah right, they will still be pressing 1 for English. This scam is only to have these illegal children become citizens within the next 3 to 4 general elction cycles so they(and their future US born kids can vote Democrat. America must raise up and stop this.

  7. Shall we purchase a tent to live and give our homes to the illegals too?

  8. It is the law. They must be allowed to go to public school. This is again another exploitation of a law not being used as intended. The law was passed with the children of seasonal Mexican workers in mind. It was considered not a good idea to have them just hanging around the streets during the day while their parents worked. The ;law provides for basic education. It does not require services which illegal alien supporters are already clamoring for. The claim is that the children cannot be educated unless their underlying problems are addressed. There are now calls for psychological and mental services due to "what these children have been through and are facing." School districts should be firm and not allow themselves to be pressured to give services. In Montgomery County Maryland today, there are multi-million dollar health care clinics built and maintained in elementary, middle, and high schools for illegal alien children and their families as well as the costly "Maryland Cares" health care clinics in key areas of the of the county with high illegal alien populations. The reason these exists is because illegal aliens were filling hospital emergency rooms with minor ailments such as children with sniffles while Maryland citizens, with serious medical needs, were being forced to wait hours for service. Of course, the illegals came to the emergency rooms because they could get free care there. Several organizations press citizens to contribute for illegals' school supplies. School systems should hire attorneys to review the governing law against the government fact sheets as well as the demands from illegal alien supporters. They then should prepare to litigate if necessary and not be cowed. Litigation may be costly but giving into the demands will be far more costly first in funds expended and in then in the damage done to American students from funds being illegally directed to the support and benefit of illegal aliens.

    Because our politicians are only out for votes. They could care less that these illegals are a burden to us Americans. Not only monetarily but on social and criminal issues. Most politicians are rolling in dough, we have to make do. And to support their illegals they raise our taxes. Sign up with NumbersUSA, it is free. They are trying to do something. Also write/email/call Obama and your Congressmen/Senators/Representatives. I do often.

  10. CactusCookie says:

    Absolutely right. Throw them across the border and they can find their way back from where they came. Our border has to be secured first before sending aid to these countries.

  11. CactusCookie says:

    If Obama gets his way, it might come to that. Not only open borders but open homes too. Nothing is too good for Obama's illegals. I say DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS. Or cut off all freebies to them so they will deport themselves. That is what they are here for, the freebies politicians give them, at our expense.

  12. CactusCookie says:

    Somebody has to write/email/call Montgomery County in Maryland. They are encouraging more illegals to come. I also read that Chelsea, Mass welcomed the UAC's with open arms. How stupid can people be?

  13. sweetqueen777 says:

    True, most politicians probably send their kids to private schools, where their money and prestige buy them a better education for their own kids. We cannot afford to educate these kids. This is crazy. I plan to homeschool my grandson, as the schools will not be fit to be in by the time he goes.

  14. Government education is hardly a gift…

    If they knew what they were getting, they'd go back across the border.

  15. LC in Texas says:

    TAXPAYERS better speak up now or forever hold your peace. Governors, get you a back bone and take your republic back – the people demand it. Stop DC welfare, the states know what they need, and different states have different needs. All education should be under state control, you have what you can afford!

  16. Our federal laws about public education need to be reversed. The US Department of Education needs to be abolished and returned to the states. Government has a blank check and spends at will without regard to the tax payers. This will only get worse. We need to take care of citizens first and return illegals back to their homeland so that they can apply for citizenship and enter through the front door. As far as San Francisco goes, it operates as a Republic of its own. Forget about Ms. Pelosi, she is tuned out.

  17. Oh for cryin' out loud, don't give them any ideas they might not have thought of yet.

  18. Aren’t government-run schools reimbursed (paid) according to their average daily attendance? And don’t government-run schools train the youth to be good collectivists? . . . . So, why should we be surprised that bureaucrats and politicians want every available immigrant placed in government-run schools.

  19. CactusCookie says:

    You are absolutely right but we need to do something to let the politicians know that we do not just lay down and die and let them walk all over us. Please sign in to NumbersUSA and do some letter writing and emailing.

  20. Tfhis is true and we need to rise up and have these Illegal Immigrants deported immediately. I got an email the other day and it said there were 75 countries who have sent Illegal Immigrants into the US and it is time the American people rose up and stood up for the American people's education. If I had the money I would have gone to college, but as a poor white girl who had a mother and dadduy who cared nothing for them. My dad drank all us money up and mom didn't work and cared nothing about any of her children, so there fore we had no money. Why should we let these evil corrupt people come over to the U S and take everything we have worked our buns off all these years. If any of you voted for Obama and now you see what is taking place and you have to get up and vote for a responsible president and his goverment employees, but in the mean time call every day all day long if you can and tell the WH exactly what you mean and don't give up hounding them to death. I will be going in on Tweeter and saying what I need to say because if we do not stand up for ourselves, who will?. There is no one in the WH who will stand up for us, so time to rise up against these communist and terrorist and let them have it. If we can get millions of people to call the WH and even have townhall meeting and let your congressmen have it. NOT one of us will be helped if we don't do something. Obama hates America and the people in it, so he is going to do everything in his power to make sure he will take every dime and property from us, so America time to rise up against this evil corrupt communist/terrorist WH. Don't stop until we get these evil deported. Obama wants them to have everything we have, even though he could care less about them, he wants those people here so they can rob us of everything we have and so they can vote for the Democratic & RINO scumbags in the WH. So, please, please help your friends, neighbors, and family until we get these morons ran out of office and the Aliens deported. I will be doing as much as all of you'll are doing so let's get with it.

  21. And so, we have yet another UNFUNDED mandate from the federal government.

  22. If someone wants to be a homo that does not matter much to me, but what I object to is when they are hypocritical and play parts of normal people in their acting gigs.
