Receiving the public education to which they are entitled should not be one of those challenges. However, a recent report from the Georgetown Law Human Rights Institute finds that undocumented immigrant children often face obstacles to school enrollment and difficulty accessing educational services.
Furthermore, children and their parents are fearful of attending school in light of recent ICE enforcement actions. Because unaccompanied children may arrive in the U. In other cases, these kids have been told that they must delay their enrollment until after testing periods because administrators fear they will negatively impact test performance.
The Departments of Education and Justice have reminded school districts of their responsibilities regarding immigrant students. For example, a May fact sheet reminded school administrators that they may not require students or their parents to provide a social security number.

Furthermore, schools have not taken advantage of tools and programs that could help this population. For example, many unaccompanied children qualify as homeless under the provisions of the McKinney Vento Act and, as such, should be immediately identified and permitted to enroll in school.
However, other school districts have not taken any actions regarding ICE activities in schools.
In Texas, the Fort Worth Independent School District and Arlington Public School District admitted they have no training programs addressing either non-discrimination towards undocumented students, or on whether and how employees should interact with ICE.
There is clearly a need for more clear information and policies regarding both access to education and immigration enforcement in or around schools.
