LAUSD votes to ban Federal immigration agents from campuses

LA Unified Schools are now declared 'no ICE' zones. The school board has banned Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from setting foot on any campus without the district's permission.

The new resolution brought forth by the school board instructs all staff members to not let any ICE agents on campus for any reason, including evaluation of exchange or non-immigrant students until approved and cleared by the Superintendent of Schools and LAUSD lawyers.

ICE claims that they do not come to schools looking for students, but parents fear sending their kids to school after information they received of ICE agents conducting a series of raids across the U.S. in January targeting Central American immigrants.
