According to Article 26 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, “Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory.” North Carolina would be saying: if you’re undocumented, education is not only not compulsory, it is discouraged.
When most North Carolinians continue to patronize business that make use of illegal labor, it shouldn’t surprise us that desperately poor families from other countries decide to come to America. The children of these workers belong in schools–not in the fields, not in restaurants, and not in the streets.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me about this issue.
