Services for Children of Undocumented Immigrants

Adopted January 1994 – Reaffirmed July 2012 – Community Concerns Commission

The California State PTA recognizes that the United States is a country of immigrants and that the resulting blend of cultures enriches our nation.

The California State PTA believes all children who reside in California, regardless of their parents’ immigration status, have the right of access to a quality public education, adequate food and shelter, and basic health services. PTA also believes the congressional and executive branches of the United States Government must bear full responsibility for federal immigration policies and the resulting fiscal impact on the states.

The California State PTA further believes that it is in the interest of all Californians to ensure that all children, including the children of undocumented immigrants, have the opportunity to reach their full potential and become productive members of society.
