The US government is looking for a way to ban illegal children from getting school
The anti-immigration policy of the Trump administration is developing new ways to combat illegal immigrants. To date, several attempts have been made to prohibit children who do not have the right to legally stay in the United States to attend schools.
This move is associated with a very large burden on the budget, since schooling spends more than 12 thousand dollars for each child per year. According to the latest data, the number of children of immigrants is almost 800 thousand people, and this entails expenses of more than $ 9 billion annually.
In US history, there have already been precedents for restricting undocumented children in 1996, but then this attempt failed. Bill Clinton opposed tuition fees and vetoed the bill.
Trump, as part of his new bill, which could easily ban the authorities from issuing green cards to people who have been using free social privileges for more than a year, can also ban children from families who also use social benefits for 12 months.
Activists advocating for the protection of the rights of immigrants strongly opposed the initiative, calling it "unacceptable" and "non-American." According to them, children should not suffer from the mistakes of their parents, emphasizing that this policy is racist and cruel.
