Obama Pledges “Equal Education” for ILLEGALS

THE HILL | The Obama administration announced Wednesday it would issue new guidance requiring U.S. schools to provide equal education to all children, regardless of their immigration status.

Attorney Gen. Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan are expected to detail the proposal Thursday morning during a conference call with reporters.

The Justice and Education departments sought through 2011 guidance to ensure equal treatment for undocumented children in accordance with the Supreme Court’s 1982 Plyler vs. Doe ruling, which prohibited a school district from charging illegal immigrants extra tuition fees.

“The Obama administration continues to receive reports that school districts are adopting policies and practices that have the effect of discouraging, and in some cases preventing, undocumented children and children from immigrant families from enrolling in public schools,” the Justice Department said in announcing the follow-up guidance. “The new guidance is intended to help address these issues.“

The updated guidance is intended to help schools understand their responsibilities under Plyler vs. Doe, and other federal civil rights laws.

    This is why they want cheap labor. They pay half the wages and the taxpayers pay the other half. And still they have billions of dollars to send back home. They take our jobs and we have to pay them to do it without the benefit of their labor.

    This is not my country anymore and it represents nothing I believe in and it certainly does not represent me.

    It’s way past time for secession.
