Donald Trump ran on a platform that was based on ‘America First,’ and that mantra has been the subject of many a debate. But for one Californian, it should be taken even a step further, to benefit the leaders of tomorrow.
Joseph Turner is the founder of American Children First, a non-profit organization whose tag line is “Building a better future for our children,” and he filed a Notice of Intent to Circulate (a) Petition in the Yucaipa Calimesa Joint Unified School District for “the purpose of ensuring that American children born to American citizens and legal residents of the United States have access to the best education possible,” according to the request.
Part of that includes an initiative to “bar illegal aliens from attending public schools in the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District (YCJUSD) and also require illegal alien parents of American citizens to pay a ‘non-resident’ tuition to enroll their children in our schools.”
Turner sites case law from 1982 (Phyler v Doe) and calls it “one of the worst decisions in the history of the Supreme Court” because it allowed illegal aliens “to attend our public schools and that American taxpayers must sacrifice the quality of education their children receive because it was their responsibility to educate anyone who came here illegally.”
The petition would need approximately 3,200 signatures (one-tenth of the amount of registered voters in the area of interest) for it to qualify for the ballot. Turner is a Los Angeles resident but has admitted that he chose this school district due to it being comprised of mostly conservative residents.
