Rep. Grijalva Condemns Secretary DeVos’ Remarks on Reporting Undocumented Students to ICE

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) released the following statement this morning on Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ remarks that each school should decide for itself whether to report students to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE):

“Secretary DeVos seems almost intentionally unaware of the environment in which she operates. This is not a call she gets to make, however far above the law she imagines herself. The Supreme Court decided in Plyler v. Doe in 1982 that we don’t block children from attending K-12 public schools in this country. She needs to rescind her statement immediately or resign in favor of someone who understands how our education system actually works, and the constitutional protections that children in our nation have.”
