I ran across this comment on FB and searched for the article. Washington State school district halts international trips: https://www.usnews.com/news/best-sta...national-trips

Imagine having planned to go to British Columbia or Japan and suddenly you are told no in the name of protecting illegal aliens. This should go down well. Maybe if we keep punishing citizens this way, it will start to rub some of those sympathizers in the wrong way. Whose America is this?

That's liberal King County for you. Someday, there may be a backlash.

Classic... They're going to have to end all of their trips abroad and foreign exchange student programs to protect illegals. Nice going, liberals... you've just narrowed inquiring and growing minds' perspectives. /smirk

It is sad that the group cannot go on the trip due to one or two undocumented students but hasn't that always been the case?
I have traveled abroad under Bush, Obama and Trump and nothing has changed. If any of us cross a border or hop a plane for another country we need to have ID in the form of a passport.


SO for the sake of a few students the rest have to suffer. A trip like that is a once in a life time adventure for those kids and it is not fair that it was cancelled.

Why don't they ask the kids that are preventing the rest from going how they feel?

Why don't they just stipulate a no participation rule: No US passport or foreign passport with proof of legal US residency, no participation in the trip/program?

I was a foreign exchange student in high school. I had to have a valid US passport to participate in the exchange program.

Maybe this work in the end. The kids being denied might just wake up to the reality of all the costs of illegal immigration. Yeah, once in a lifetime. I can't imagine this has made the illegal aliens in school very popular.

This move will certainly build resentment against illegals. It is one thing to tolerate their presence. It is entirely another to have their presence infringe on your ability to do these kinds of traditional kinds of school trips. It is a sad that the interests of the illegals rank higher than that of American kids.

Another article which brings up a good point, anyone "undocumented" wouldn't be going into Canada anyway. Seattle-area School Cancels Student Trips Because of Trump

The way I see it, if you have a personal issue, it is yours to deal with. If I didn't have money for lunch, I'd decline to go. If I wasn't of an age to be doing something lawfully, I would avoid doing it, but of course, I'm not criminal and neither is my family.

They shouldn't have cancelled the trip. If the illegals couldn't make it, well---too darn bad! Why should kids that are American citizens and legal immigrants have to suffer to accommodate lawbreakers?
