The Department of Education is out with a new resource guide encouraging schools and educators to help illegal aliens apply for amnesty under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The document, which was released on Tuesday, also urges schools to provide welcoming environments for illegal alien students by hosting events such as “Undocumented Week.”
“The Department hopes that educators, schools, and campuses will, as they see fit, draw upon the tips and examples in this Guide to better support undocumented youth and, ultimately, move us closer to the promise of college and career readiness for all,” reads the 63-page report.
Under a section entitled “DACA Consideration Fact Sheet,” the agency encourages educators to inform illegal aliens of the DACA program, which Obama enacted by executive action in 2012.
The program has extended amnesty protection to 680,000 illegal aliens who were brought to the U.S. by their parents. Another 1.5 million are eligible for protection, and another 400,000 will become eligible within the next few years. The Obama administration, including the Education Department, hopes to maximize the number of illegal aliens protected under the law.

“Besides providing high-quality instruction and supports, another important way that schools, colleges, and education professionals can help undocumented youth is by sharing information about DACA with youth and their families,” the guide reads.
“Providing this information at the early childhood and elementary school levels may be helpful because, though the children would not meet DACA’s threshold age guideline, their parents or family members may meet the guidelines,” it continues.
The resource guide provides instructions on how and when to apply for DACA or renewal of protected status under the law.Read the Rest of the story HERE.
