ABSTRACT

Understanding the Impact of Immigration Enforcement on California Children in K-12 Schools   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The California Advisory Committee (Committee) in 2018 voted to examine the impact of federal immigration enforcement and more narrowly focused on the impact on California K-12 [kindergarten to 12th grade] students. Many students live in mixed immigration status households. The Committee also sought to understand the following: the impact of ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] enforcement practices on access to public education for California K-12 students; access to equal protection under the law for individuals based on their perceived national origin; and the extent to which due process is afforded to K-12 students and their families. [...] This report begins with introduction and background on legal authority surrounding immigration enforcement and relevant laws and policies that apply to the Committee's inquiry such as federal and state laws and a court case. A summary of themes based on testimony received follows. The report concludes with findings and recommendations issued to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to forward to appropriate federal and state entities."
