TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey may be about to take another huge step towards formal Sanctuary Statehood.
This week, the ACLU of New Jersey announced that it is filing suit against a dozen new Jersey school districts to compel the admittance of illegal immigrant children:
- Northern Valley Regional High School District (Bergen County)
- Bellmawr School District (Camden County)
- Sterling Regional High School District (Camden County)
- Winslow Township School District (Camden County)
- East Orange Community Charter School (Essex County)
- West New York School District (Hudson County)
- Sea Girt School District (Monmouth County)
- Harding Township School District (Morris County)
- Watchung Hills Regional High School District (Somerset County)
- Montague School District (Sussex County)
- Cranford School District (Union County)
- Allamuchy School District (Warren County)
The alleged “discriminatory” policies?
Those requiring state-issued identification for enrollment.
“New Jersey’s state Constitution calls for free public education, and that applies to every single child – no exceptions,” said ACLU-NJ Staff Attorney Elyla Huertas. “In a state where one in five residents is foreign-born, at a time when our president has made the exclusion of immigrants a key part of his policy agenda, it’s more important than ever for every school district in New Jersey to meet its obligations, both to New Jersey’s families and to the Constitution.”
The ACLU’s suits may soon prove moot; New Jersey legislators are currently working on legislation to permit illegal aliens to obtain New Jersey driver’s licenses.
