Duncan: Illegal Crossings 'Inspiring'

Ed. Secretary praises unlawful crossings.

Apr. 17, 2014

According to Education Secretary Arne Duncan, “it’s frankly inspiring” observing children of illegal immigrants crossing the border on a daily basis to attend American schools. In an Education Department video, Duncan says that “at [a] local elementary school, Columbus Elementary in New Mexico, the majority of the kids travel back and forth across the border every single day.” He then praises “parents [for having] the courage to drop their six-, seven- and eight-year olds off to send them here to chase the American dream, to get a better education, to contribute to society.” We’re not sure what’s worse – deliberately breaking immigration laws that aren’t being enforced, or Democrats encouraging such unlawful behavior.
