PRESS RELEASE: Initiative Barring Illegal Aliens from Public Schools Filed with San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters #WakeUpAmerica #StopRewardingStartDeporting #Trump
(San Bernardino, CA, April 3, 2017) – Today, proponents of a local initiative that would prohibit illegal aliens from attending public schools in the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District (YCJUSD) took the first step by filing paperwork with the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters. The “American Children First Initiative” would also require illegal alien parents of American citizen children to pay a “non-resident” tuition rate as a condition of enrollment.
Though the Supreme Court ruled in Plyler v Doe (1982) that American taxpayers were obligated to pay for the education of illegal aliens, the author of the initiative believes it’s time to revisit that decision.
“California spends billions educating the children of illegal aliens while per pupil spending and performance lags the rest of the nation,” said Joseph Turner, Founder and Executive Director of American Children First. “Fake Americans in Sacramento would rather help foreigners and real Americans are tired of watching their children get treated like second-class citizens.”
The Federation for American Immigration Reform found that California spent nearly $14.5 billion educating the children of illegal aliens and more than $25 billion on all services combined in 2014. The California Department of Education reports that nearly 25 percent of all students (1.4 million) in K-12 are classified as “English Learners.”
In 1982 the court ruled that in order for Texas to bar illegal aliens from their schools, it must further “some substantial state interest.” It also expressed skepticism that barring illegal aliens would produce any significant improvement in education since state funding was allocated on a per pupil basis.
“I think protecting American children from being raped by illegal alien students in our schools is a pretty damn compelling state interest,” said Turner, alluding to the recent rape of a 14-year-old student by an illegal alien classmate at Rockville High School in Maryland last month……..
