Texas Gov. Abbott: Time to revisit requiring public schools to educate illegal immigrants:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wants to take a second look at a 1982 court ruling that required public schools to educate all children, including illegal immigrants.
Mr. Abbott, a Republican, said a diverse array of students are pouring over the border and speak multiple languages, placing a management and cost burden on schools.
During an interview on a conservative talk radio show, the governor pledged to revive the case known as Plyler v. Doe and “challenge this issue again.”
“The real crux of the challenge would be to say, listen, we are dealing with billions more a year just in education expenses, so you the federal government, it’s only because of you, and it’s your responsibility to pay for that,” Mr. Abbott said Joe Pagliarulo’s nationally syndicated radio show. --->READ MORE HERE
Texas' Abbott Targets Law That Guarantees Illegal Aliens a Right to American Education
Illegal aliens could soon lose a benefit reserved for American citizens and legal residents.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is considering challenging legal precedents that require states to fund the education of illegal alien minors.
Abbott was speaking earlier this week on The Joe Pags Show on the topic, addressing the legal implications of a potential reversal of the Roe v. Wade abortion precedent.
“Texas already long ago sued the federal government about having to incur the costs of the education program, in a case called Plyler versus Doe,” said Abbott in reference to a 1982 court case.
Plyler v. Doe overturned existing Texas law that barred state education funds from being used for illegal aliens.
“I think we will resurrect that case and challenge this issue again, because the expenses are extraordinary.” --->READ MORE HERE
