President Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education has been falsely accused of calling for ICE roundups of undocumented students. She didn’t, but guess who did.
“That isn’t to say that ICE never picks up kids at schools or closely related locations (such as school bus stops) that meet the agency’s definition of a ‘sensitive location,'” Nick Gillespie writes in Reason magazine “In 2016, for instance, ThinkProgress described agents picking up an 18-year-old high school student at his bus stop in North Carolina. That happened on Barack Obama’s watch.”
“In all, ThinkProgress reported over 300 students were picked up in a coordinated raid that ‘ignited controversy over the Obama administration’s longstanding struggle between enforcing border security and allowing undocumented immigrants with roots in the country to continue living without the fear of deportation.'”
