    SCHOOL TO BE NAMED AFTER JOURNALIST, UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT

    School to be named after journalist, undocumented immigrant

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – At a divisive time for U.S. immigration policies, a California school board has decided to name a new elementary school after an award-winning journalist who disclosed in 2011 that he had been living in the U.S. illegally.

    The Mountain View Whisman School District board voted Thursday to name the as-yet-unopened school after Jose AntonioVargas, bypassing Steve Jobs and other technology giants with ties to the SanFrancisco Bay Area's high-tech Silicon Valley.

    "We wanted to pick someone who embodied the values of what you can do with an education, as Jose does,"school board president Laura Blakely told the San Francisco Chronicle .

    The move comes as the Trump administration faces a growing backlash from human-rights adocates over its immigration practices.

    Nearly 2,000 minors have been separated from their families at the U.S. border over a six-week period during a crackdown on illegal crossings, the Associated Press found.

    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also announced that asylum protections will no longer be offered to victims of domestic violence and gang violence.

    Vargas emigrated with his family from the Philippines to the U.S. when he was 12 years old. The Chronicle was among the places he worked in his early career. Vargas went on to earn a Pulitzer Prize for journalism and then took on the role of immigration activist.

    He revealed his undocumented status in aNew York Times Magazine essay in 2011.

    "As a proud product of the Bay Area's public school system, I am overwhelmed by this totally unexpected and deeply meaningful honor," Vargas said in a statement.

    The school will open in August 2019. Blakely said Vargas' name was initially floated about a year ago.

    "He's been the face of the American dream for so many students who came here as children, and really grew up as Americans without having citizenship," she said.

    WHEN IS ICE GOING TO PICK THIS PERSON UP AND DEPORT HIM!

    OUTRAGES THAT A SCHOOL WOULD DO THIS AND TEACH OUR CHILDREN THAT IT IS OK TO BREAK OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS AND ANYBODY CAN DO WHAT THEY PLEASE IN THIS COUNTRY IF THEY SIMPLY MOUTH OFF AND DEMAND WE DO NOTHING TO THEM!

    OUR LAWS HAVE NO MEANING OR MERIT!!!

    THE PARENTS OF THIS SCHOOL SHOULD BE OUTRAGED!

    NOW WE ARE NAMING SCHOOLS AFTER LAW BREAKERS!!! WHAT MESSAGE DOES THIS SEND TO OUR CHILDREN? BREAK THE LAW AND GET REWARDED FOR IT!

    WHAT NEXT THE "EL CHAPO SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS"???

    The left is making them Icons, heroes, to be worshiped and followed. Our country is doomed unless we start enforcing our laws. Let's start by a high profile deportation of Jose Antonio Vargas!

    They are foreign outlaws. We need to get them out of here, not name schools after them.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
