The Obama administration is now using the nation’s public schools to enroll as many illegal immigrants as possible in the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals amnesty program. The U.S. Department of Education issued the document “Resource Guide: Supporting Undocumented Youth” to public schools this week in “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.”

The document cites laws that require schools to educate all students, regardless of immigration status, as well as research and case studies that show illegal immigrants worry a lot about their undocumented status, which can affect academic performance.NIllegal immigrant students, and their family members, are constantly concerned with being deported, and do not have access to federal financial aid, making college unaffordable. “The resources and tips in this Guide, which were compiled based on a review of research and recommendations from stakeholders, may help educators, counselors, and others support student academic and social success, and to work collaboratively with youth and their families to find creative ways to finance college costs,” according to the guide.
