ANTIS NEXT TARGET: PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION FOR ALL CHILDREN

Rate this Entry

While abolishing birthright citizenship is a long-shot issue for anti-immigrants, some are setting their hopes on a target that they hope is easier to hit - the right of all children in the US to a public school education.


But you say that the Supreme Court ended the discussion on this nearly 30 years ago in the Plyler case when they held that all children in the US - even those illegally present - have the right to attend public schools under the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. Silly you, the antis are hoping that enough conservatives have been appointed to the court in the years since to overturn this case. Plyler was decided by a 5-4 margin so maybe they're hoping some of the more conservative Justices will go their way. Fortunately, the Supreme Court of today has not fallen in to traditional left-right divisions on immigration issues and has shown a fair amount of respect for precedent so I'm not too worried. But we need to be vigilant to defend against these assaults on our freedoms.

    Republicans have given enough ammo to Hispanics to get out and vote this November, the dems need to do get out the vote efforts...

    Perhaps the low IQ idiots in the GOP and even some in the Dem party dont understand that this would lead to shortage of skills and need for more foreign workers or shipping of jobs from abroad. Perhaps people such as Jack should fight against it...because he does not want foreigners taking jobs here!

    "would lead to shortage of skills and need for more foreign workers or shipping of jobs from abroad."

    Not to mention that free time on their hands at young age will attract them to illegal activities.

    Will the antis put the money where their mouth is and fight for higher education spending?

    http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Education/2010/0809/Obama-aims-to-lift-college-graduation-rates-but-his-tools-are-few

    That kind of money isn't out there for the president's higher education plans, says Patrick Callan, president of the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education.

    ""Obama had planned a pretty well-funded initiative incentivizing college completion rates, but he lost that money during the legislative process of health-care reform," Mr. Callan says. "So he doesn't have a lot of money, and there aren't many ways to put more federal money in it.""

    Or do the antis want to destroy the economy by doubling pay and accelerating inflation and bankruptcy which will destroy the US economy?

    Immigrants or locals, education should be fair and deal with everyone equally. Based on a few wrting services reviews it is derived that there are many talented children who are doing labor due to lack of education. The Government should look out for those as well so that everyone is treated equally.

    It is very difficult to learn without the teacher. A child learns from his teacher and adopts the characteristics and qualities which teachers guide http://www.excellentacademichelp.com/essay-writing/ .
