DEL RIO, Texas (AP) - Mexican children have crossed the border in Del Rio for years to attend public school, using U.S. addresses to enroll illegally. But this year, school officials plan to kick them out.
Officials from the San Felipe Del Rio Consolidated Independent School District stood at the border port that separates Del Rio from Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, and watched for school children entering the U.S. on Wednesday morning.
Parents were handed a letter, warning that their children will be withdrawn from school unless they provide proof of residence in the United States immediately.
