WAKE COUNTY – The push to protect illegal immigrants has now extended from ‘Sanctuary Sheriff’ to ‘Sanctuary Superintendent.’ Wake County Superintendent Cathy Moore issued guidelines to the district’s principals earlier this week that instructed school officials to protect ‘undocumented students’ from immigration officials to the ‘fullest extent of the law.’
From Raleigh News & Observer:
“Wake County Superintendent Cathy Moore announced Tuesday that she had met this week with the district’s principals and had shared with them guidance on how to protect the rights of undocumented students. The guidance directs principals to notify Moore if any immigration officers attempt to enter a school or seek information about students or their families.
“We strive to provide a welcoming environment every day where children and families feel safe and supported in the pursuit of learning,” Moore said at the board meeting. “Our counselors, principals and teachers play a critical role in making that happen.
“While we are unable to control immigration issues beyond our campus boundaries, we can ensure a learning environment where legal and educational rights of students and families are protected to the fullest extent of the law.” […]”
Funny thing, applying the nation’s laws to their FULLEST extent would mean holding the illegal students’ parents accountable for breaking immigration laws, but we digress.
To follow up her gloating announcement about protecting illegal immigrants from federal immigration law, Moore, the first Latina superintendent of Wake County, gave her statement again…in Spanish.
What kind of Wild West scenario are we living in that municipalities and school officials can willfully and publicly rebuke federal law in deference to people residing in our country illegally?
