Government Finally Cracks Down on Illegals


I'm so happy to see good Democrats cracking down on illegals -- and using advanced technology to do so:
In case you needed further proof of the American education system's failings, especially in poor and minority communities, consider the latest crime to spread across the country: educational theft. That's the charge that has landed several parents, such as Ohio's Kelley Williams-Bolar, in jail this year.

An African-American mother of two, Ms. Williams-Bolar last year used her father's address to enroll her two daughters in a better public school outside of theirneighborhood. After spending nine days behind bars charged with grand theft, the single mother was convicted of two felony counts. Not only did this stain her spotless record, but it threatened her ability to earn the teacher's license she had been working on.

Ms. Williams-Bolar caught a break last month when Ohio Gov. John Kasich granted her clemency, reducing her charges to misdemeanors from felonies. His decision allows her to pursue her teacher's license, and it may provide hope to parents beyond the Buckeye State. In the last year, parents in Connecticut, Kentucky and Missouri have all been arrested—and await sentencing—for enrolling their children in better public schools outside of
their districts.
Now wait a minute -- we're talking about undocumented migrant students? But aren't they American citizens? I wonder what Rick Perry would say about this. I suppose the County Prosecutor who prosecuted Ms Williams-Bolar doesn't "have a heart."
County Prosecutor Sherri Walsh charged Williams-Bolar with grand theft and falsifying records — a third-degree felony. [Williams-Bolar] was convicted on the felony charge, and sentenced to five years in prison.
Sherry Walsh is a Democrat, by the way. Who knew Democrats could get tough on illegals who are simply looking for a better life?

You better believe this is serious business:
Other school districts use services like VerifyResidence.com, which provides "the latest in covert video technology and digital photographic equipment to photograph, videotape, and document" children going from their house to school. School districts can enroll in the company's rewards program, which awards anonymous tipsters $250 checks for reporting out-of-district students.
Where there's a will, there's a draconian way!

  1. Her father pays property taxes, I assume. Another example of government gone wild.

  2. That was my thought also Doo Doo Econ...(tax district)Not to mention that the father pays support to the kids that he does not get to write off on his taxes...
    And if the mother is in jail for five years, wouldn't the kids end up going to the school in the father's district?!

    Excellent point. I might add that whether one is a property owner or not, it's impossible to escape the cost of education imposed through property taxes.

  4. School have a responsibility to the people who fund them to reserve the schools resources for students with a legitimate right to be there. Vouchers would be a fine way to address these sorts of problems, but union gangs and their democrat enablers will never let that happen.

  5. @Chuck You make an important point. It's interesting to see how hypocritical Democrats (and Republicans) can be on this issue when you consider their approach to illegal immigration from Mexico.

  6. I fail to see how one has anything to do with the other. What am I missing?
