‘Astounding ignorance of the law’: Civil rights groups slam DeVos for saying schools can report undocumented students

This week, Education Secretary Betsy Devos said that school officials should report undocumented students to immigration officials. This is outrageous. First, teachers and school administration officials should never be used as immigration enforcement agents. Second, this is morally reprehensible that we would deny educational opportunities to children of undocumented immigrants. If the Trump administration makes this official policy, I will do everything I can to stop it as Attorney General. We are better than this as a nation and Connecticut will stand as a firewall against this hatred. I call on my opponents to join me in opposing this disgusting and bigoted attempt to target school children. http://ow.ly/uQMb30kbfRK
