Chicago Public Schools Keep ICE Agents Out
In an attempt to protect undocumented students, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) have claimed that they will not allow US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents access into their buildings unless they are in possession of a criminal warrant. CPS released a resolution this past December to create “a safe and welcome” learning environment for all students. In addition to Chicago, other school districts, including places like Pennsylvania and California, have stepped up against recent policies and actions that are directly targeted towards immigrant communities. According to a Pew Research Center estimate, 1.3% of all the students enrolled in grades K-12 in the US are undocumented citizens.
