District Votes to Keep Immigration Officers Off Campuses

March 23, 2012  | 

The board of the Roaring Fork School District in Carbondale, Colo., voted this month to ask local police departments not to assign to its schools officers who participate in federal immigration enforcement activities.

In fall 2011, community activists spoke out about a police officer who they believe had led ICE officials to illegal immigrant families with children in district schools, Fierce Homeland Security reports. The district is 52% Latino.

The accusations led the U.S. Homeland Security Department office of civil rights and civil liberties to open an investigation into potential civil rights abuses.

OMG enforcing Federal laws against illegal entry, and having an officer report it to ICE. WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO, where we don't allow illegal acts?

All LEOs need to realize that being an ILLEGAL ALIEN in the United States IS NOW LEGAL, and grounds for automatic US citizenship (or at least a right to vote)
