School system vows to help undocumented students, families

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina’s largest school system is telling its undocumented students and their families that they will protect their rights in light of a recent surge in immigration arrests.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Wake County Superintendent Cathy Moore says she has met with the district’s principals and shared guidance on how to protect the rights of undocumented students.

Under the guidance, principals are directed to notify Moore if any federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers attempt to enter a school or seek information about students or their families. Moore said that no officers have ever attempted to enter a Wake school.

Concerns have risen since ICE agents detained more than 200 people in February across the state who are thought to be living in the country illegally.
