Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S.202 (1982), was a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States struck down a state statute denying funding for education to children who were illegal immigrants. The Court found that where states limit the rights afforded to people based on their status as aliens, this limitation must be examined under an intermediate scrutiny standard to determine whether it furthers a substantial goal of the State.

The Court believes that its better to have an educated populace of the state regardless if the members are legal or not.

Denying education does not further the goal of the State

Yep, if all the children of the illegals got good educations, they would pay more in taxes.

I know a family, they came here illegally, one son is a college professor, one son runs a business, one son teaches high school. They contribute to society. If they had been prohibited from an education, no telling what would have happened, but certainly not much good would have been accomplished.

If all illegal alien children and their parents left the country, we wouldn’t have to worry about them paying taxes. . . . or abusing tax-funded services.

Why do the pro illegals forget all the data regarding the monies spent for illegal activity? Our country is bled dry! Send the illegal parents home, take their anchor babies with them and let that country educate them. We owe them NOTHING. The taxes paid by Americans can rigthfully go where needed instead of them. Sheesh

If all the children of illegal aliens went back home with their parents they could get an education in their own countries and not on our dime. They wouldn't be overcrowding our classrooms and needing special attention because they don't speak English.

That college professor probably took the place of an American in need of a teaching job same goes for his son. If they couldn't have gotten an education in our country they probably would have gone back home to get one, taught in the schools of their homeland and opened a business there instead. In otherwords helping their own homeland.

You can't ask if someone is illegal or not. There was a case like this in Colorado a while ago.

That's why the BP is our only line of defense from the parasitic actions of those that come to clean out our wallets. They will take and take until they are somehow stopped from taking.

Speaking of education, you did not read my post correctly. The "son" you refer to is the brother of the professor. They are helping their homeland. Their homeland is America. Maybe your people didn't immigrate here, but most peoples did.

Holy mackeral, I guess you are right, there is some forlorn college professor living in a homeless shelter because some Mexican took his job.

Denying education does not further the goal of the State
Yes, we are all aware of the law which mandates the squandering of our tax dollars on illegal aliens. This law also has contributed to the overcrowding of schools, and huge budget deficits. Not only are we paying for the education of people whose mere presence is a violation of our laws, but also Mexicans who exploit this asinine law by commuting daily from Mexico to “get a better education.” Yes, we realize we are being abused. Thanks for the reminder.

Denying them an education does not further the goal of the state? Really? Does insolvency further the goal of the state?

For years, Mexican children from nearby Ciudad Acuna have crossed a bridge north to attend public schools in Del Rio Texas as administrators and immigration officials looked the other way. Meanwhile U.S. taxpayers pick up the nearly $3 million annual tab to educate the Mexican kids whose parents have no regard for the nation’s laws.
