A resolution declaring the Fairfield-Suisun School District a “safe haven” and reminding families about laws that protect students from questions about their immigration status won support Thursday from trustees and most public speakers.
“Every student is our student no matter the circumstances. Period,” Trustee Jonathan Richardson said.
“Our job is to provide education,” he said. “We’re not the education police.”
Trustee John Silva recalled being sent to Mexico twice because his parents weren’t documented and had to get papers together for the family’s return.
