From the article:

Quote:
Raymond Landry, a local pastor, said he has no problem with people trying to do better for themselves, but that the idea of offering a less restrictive ID card got personal for his family when he could not register one of his two children in school because improperly identified students were already enrolled, leaving no room for other students. “So that’s what we’re looking forward to—people are going to get more cranky and edgy because lines for services are going to be going around the corner,” said Landry. “It’s become survival of the fittest.
I've been saying that all along. People who have NOT been affected by illegal immigration are starting to see it bleed into their lives. That's when they start caring.

I'm not understanding "improperly identified students". It sounds like his local school system failed to scale to the amount of students they had. Won't the ID actually solve that problem and others?

I have no idea what kind of school it is. My first thought was that most schools don't even ask for an ID because of our federal education laws. But, then I thought maybe it was a special school or a private school. So, who knows. However, back to your question: maybe it was the overpopulation created by illegal immigrant children that made them a failure in scaling ... because of that federal law.
