Bummer: Fear Of ICE Causing School Kids To Live In Fear

They should be living in fear. They are breaking federal law by being unlawfully present in the United States

ICE raids put undocumented students in ‘fear,’ activists say. They’re asking Wake schools for help.

Community activists, including some teachers, are urging the Wake County school system to do more to reassure families of undocumented students who are worried about increased ICE arrests of illegal immigrants.

Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents detained more than 200 people this month across the state who are believed to be living in the country illegally. Several activists urged the Wake County school board on Tuesday to pass a resolution declaring schools as safe zones for undocumented students and to make it harder for ICE agents to get information from schools.

“We want you to assure our immigrant families that schools are a safe place and a sanctuary for them,” said Fernando Martinez, an organizer for the Education Justice Alliance, a group that advocates for minority students. “Not even their apartments or their houses are any longer safe for them. ICE is terrorizing our communities, literally terrorizing our communities.”

Well, that’s a shame. Too bad. If they want to blame someone, blame the parents who brought them to the nation illegally/overstayed visas. If the parent was a petty thief, low level drug dealer, or some other criminal, would we be worried about the kids “living in fear”? No, because we would say this is the fault of the parent.

In 1982, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that students are guaranteed the right to attend public schools regardless of their immigration status. But undocumented students and their family members can still be deported.

The Triangle area (which includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and all the surrounding municipalities) has seen tremendous growth over the decades, with so many people moving in and bringing their kids that schools are in constant flux. New ones are being built quickly, kids are constantly shifted around. How much money are we wasting on the children of illegal aliens that would be better spent on U.S. citizens? How many are taking up school slots that should go to citizens? How many kids end up being bused across the county because a seat is taken by an illegal?

Under ICE policy, schools are considered to be “sensitive locations,” where arrests or interviews are generally not made.

So, the entire “advocacy” thing is a farce, since ICE doesn’t go into schools. And they weren’t going to go into schools to detain children in the first place.

In a news conference this month, ICE Atlanta Field Office Director Sean Gallagher called ICE actions the “new normal,” The News & Observer previously reported.

“This is the direct conclusion of dangerous policies of not cooperating with ICE,” Gallagher said at the news conference. “This forces my officers to go out onto the street to conduct more enforcement.”

You reap what you sow, Open Borders advocates.

“What we’re experiencing isn’t a just and safe environment for all people,” Johnson-Hostler said. “The mayors who signed on to stand in solidarity against the ICE raids said it best. ‘Fear and terror harm everyone.’

“I think regardless of where people stand or what they believe, it’s important that we recognize that every singe person is being impacted.”

First, she’s actually claiming to be harmed herself, along with other parents and kids who are not illegals, because the illegals are living in fear. Beyond stupid. She’s making herself and others into Victims.

Second, who cares? If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. Illegals made their choice, and any fear is on themselves.

    Teach: Kids should be living in fear.

    If they were born here, they’re citizens. If they weren’t they’re entitled to due process before being deported. Agreed?

    Not that Cons care about children (even their own parents ignored them, that’s why they grew up to be bitter and cruel old men), but would you want your child to be living in fear? What criteria do ICE use to pick which kids on the street to snatch and interrogate? We all know that answer.

    Perhaps the combat-ready ICE agents should choose kids randomly to detain, as you never know if the parents might be English, Canadian, Aussie, Scottish or Irish who overstayed their visa. See how the white community likes it. “Hello, Mrs. McGillicutty? This is ICE agent Sergeant Baumann, and we have detained little Enid walking home from school and it appears she doesn’t have citizenship papers on her. We’ll hold her here until you can get down with papers proving your citizenship. She seems frightened and is crying for some reason.”

    Fortunately we’ll have regime change in Jan 2021 (unless the Russians find a new stooge to install), and ICE will no longer be the gestapo demanding the papers of school children.
