San Fran Superintendent: Important to TEACH Kids OK to BREAK LAWS

Adults are supposed to be role models for children. Educators, teachers and Administrators need to be of the highest moral values. Yet the Superintendent of the San Fran schools (which is segregated with only 13% white students)is telling the 57,000 kids that laws are meant to be broken—and if you do not like a law—ignore it and say “ask someone else to enforce it”..

“Superintendent Richard Carranza reassured students and families Thursday that any request for access by Immigration and Customs Enforcement would need to go through a “thorough review process,” according to a statement from the district.

“The San Francisco Unified School District, like the city of San Francisco, is a sanctuary,” Carranza said in a statement. “We do not ask students or families about their immigration status. We are committed to serving all children and to maintaining a safe and productive learning environment.”

That means he wants to give a public warning to illegal aliens (that is what they are—they are NOT undocumented, the dog did not eat their papers) so they go take a short vacation till the ICE folks leave. When he says “review”, he means to make this public, to warn those breaking the law. In the law this is called a co-conspirator. In education he is a role model for future “Occupiers” or #blacklivesmatter. Carranza believes in protecting lawbreakers—isn’t that a lesson you want your children to learn?

SF superintendent responds to rumors of ICE raids at schools

The San Francisco Unified School District said immigration authorities will not be given immediate access to any of The City’s public schools in response to rumors of impending raids.

Superintendent Richard Carranza reassured students and families Thursday that any request for access by Immigration and Customs Enforcement would need to go through a “thorough review process,” according to a statement from the district.

“The San Francisco Unified School District, like the city of San Francisco, is a sanctuary,” Carranza said in a statement. “We do not ask students or families about their immigration status. We are committed to serving all children and to maintaining a safe and productive learning environment.”

Last weekend, ICE engaged in a nationwide enforcement operation to take into custody and return adults who entered the U.S. illegally with children, partly in response to an increased rate of migrants coming to the U.S. from Central America since the summer of 2014.

According to ICE, none of the related arrests occurred in California. There have been no confirmed raids anywhere in San Francisco.

But San Francisco leaders expressed concerns this week about potential raids in The City.

“We are hearing from different members of the community that families are very scared,” Supervisor David Campos said Wednesday. “The very real fear that we have is that if it happens here in San Francisco it will separate families and create havoc and turmoil in the community.”

The SFUSD reiterated its commitment Thursday to providing all students with a public education, regardless of their immigration status. The Board of Education in 2007 passed a resolution that summarizes the SFUSD’s policy regarding ICE raids, including that district employees will not ask about a student’s immigration status and that all requests for documents by ICE should be forwarded to the district’s legal office.

Board of Education Vice President Matt Haney said he too has heard from families concerned about the rumored raids, and emphasized that the district opposes immigration enforcement at schools.

“If there are raids, which we very much hope there are not, we’ll stand with our students and provide whatever support and assistance that we can to our families,” Haney wrote in an email to the San Francisco Examiner. “This is incredibly dangerous and disruptive to our schools, and to the social, emotional and academic well being of our students.”

The City came under fire for its sanctuary city policy last year after an undocumented immigrant fatally shot 32-year-old San Francisco resident Kathryn Steinle at Pier 14 on July 1. In October, the Board of Supervisors stood by its policy that orders deputies not to contact federal immigration officials unless the sheriff has authorized the communication.
