HB 2315 What Education Advocates Need to Know

On Mon­day May 21st, Gov­er­nor Haslam allowed a harsh anti-immi­grant bill to become law with­out his sig­na­ture. This mea­sure, now known as pub­lic char­ter 973, allows for law enforce­ment to car­ry out fed­er­al immi­gra­tion enforce­ment. Under this law, law enforce­ment includes School Resource offi­cers (SROs) at pub­lic schools, and cam­pus police at col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. Schools should be places of safe­ty and learn­ing for all stu­dents. Our team will work to provide you with updates of what imple­men­ta­tion of this law will mean in schools, and what you can do to help pro­tect immi­grant fam­i­lies.
