House Passes Bill to Protect Students from Biden’s Open Border Policies
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 19, 2023
WASHINGTON – Today, the House passed H.R. 3941, the Schools Not Shelters Act, sending a message to sanctuary states and cities that educational facilities should be used for educating students, not housing illegal aliens.
During debate on the legislation, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) gave the following remarks on the House Floor:
“Housing illegal aliens in public educational facilities is downright dangerous, drains educational resources, and distracts school districts and universities from their primary mission of educating students.
"This chamber sees many rigorous debates about all types of issues facing the American people. I never imagined there would be debate over the primary function of schools.
“Since when did schools being used for learning become a novel idea?
“The Schools Not Shelters Act delivers a dose of reality to the Biden administration and the Left who are putting students second to their open border policies.”
