Deportation threat looms in schools

Stamford Advocate - EDITORIAL

June 18, 2017

Maybe you believe the immigration debate has no impact on your life. Perhaps your own family’s arrival in the United States is so many generations past that commonalities with new families crossing borders have become opaque.

A meeting last week between Stamford Superintendent of Schools Earl Kim and a parent group offered a lucid reminder of why this issue grips all our communities.

The group was Building One Community, a resource center for immigrants. The conversation was about how the school district responds when Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrive at schools to question students.
