How can students attend school when they are not documented?
Residing in a state that has many undocumented immigrants. How can the children who are undocumented attend school? When I enrolled our son in school, we had to provide a list of U.S. documentation including a birth certificate. I believe all children are entitled to an education; but how are the able to enroll the students? If you can please write a hub.
You are reminding me that I also had to provide a birth certificate when my child registered for school, but remember that any child born in the U.S. is a citizen, even if the parents are not. So many of the children may be born here, and entitled by law to an education, even if their parents are illegal immigrants. I do know from my Mexican born sister-in-law that social workers on the border of CA do not have to ask for residency/citizenship in order to provide services. I'd have to do some more research for a Hub on this, but you've got me thinking.
I live in the UK and my Daughter has just started nursery (Kindergarten) and we to have to provide the child's birth certificate when enrolling them. I'll look into a hub that takes in info from all over the world.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Arizona cannot require proof of citizenship for voter registration. HUH???? Sorry, I'm all for legal immigration, but voting is a right reserved for U.S. citizens - not for illegal immigrants. When American citizens are convicted of drug crimes, their...
