Texas Governor Greg Abbott set to challenge Supreme Court ruling mandating public education for illegal immigrants

America has always been generous to immigrants. However, those who enter the country illegally may find that goodwill has run out.

Gov. Greg Abbott could challenge the 1982 Supreme Court ruling that granted all children the right to public education regardless of immigration status, the Austin-American Statesman reported. The Texas Republican made these remarks on “The Joe Pags Show” Wednesday.

“I think we will resurrect that case and challenge this issue again because the expenses are extraordinary and the times are different than when Plyler versus Doe was issued many decades ago,” Abbott told host Joe Pagliarulo regarding the Plyler v. Doe decision. The case was decided over a Texas law that sought to deny funding to children in the country illegally.

Pagliarulo set up a question for Abbott by pointing out that “public property tax dollars going to fund these schools to teach children who are 5, 6, 7, 10 years old, who don’t even have remedial English skills,” the host said.  “This is a real burden on communities. What can you do about that?” Pagliarulo asked.

“The challenge put on our public systems is extraordinary,” Abbott replied. The governor further added that the decision made Texas “bear that burden” of educating children of illegal immigrants.

This issue is especially relevant as President Joe Biden seeks to end Title 42 provision that permitted the government to turn away illegal immigrants at the border over COVID-19 health concerns. This will likely lead to another influx of illegal immigrants streaming into the border state.

“That leads to education obligations, as well as other obligations, that are simply unsustainable and unaffordable,” Abbott said during an appearance in Houston Thursday. The White House criticized Abbott as being outside the “mainstream point of view.”

Educating the children of illegal immigrants would be a responsibility worth taking on if the borders were secured to the point where the number of children would be negligible. However, Democrats’ desire for open borders means a constant stream of children packing Texas schools without commensurate tax revenue — and that is simply unsustainable.
