"Illegal children"? Your terms don't link. Read the original quoted article, to find out that the father and daughter featured are both U.S. citizens (the mother was a Legal Permanent Resident, applying for the re-issue of a lost Resident Card).

That's why I said "but I have no clue why we allow this." I was pointing out that this is a different situation entirely, whether the children are US citizens or not. Kids who don't live in the US, regardless of whether they are citizens, shouldn't be allowed to attend school in the US.

Illegal children, even if they live in the US, shouldn't be allowed to attend school in the US IMO.

I had all three of my Mexican National stepchildren enrolled in school here, while they were on their non-immigrant visas for eight months. Sometimes you can't wait around for the system to catch up on immigration statuses, and have to move on as best you can. U.S. citizen children that will eventually reside (or like my children, that will eventually become U.S. citizens) in the United States are prime candidates to educate here, in my opinion.
