ACLU Sues 3 South Jersey School Districts

ACLU Sues 3 South Jersey School Districts ACLU Sues 3 South Jersey School Districts For Immigrant Bias

A civil rights group has sued 12 New Jersey school districts over enrollment practices that it says discriminate against children of immigrants who are living in the country illegally.

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey claims Thursday in the lawsuit that the districts require forms of state-issued identification that can only be obtained by someone who is a citizen or has a Social Security number.

The districts are spread across the state and include one charter school district. The ACLU says the selected districts have the most restrictive policies, but that several others in the state also impose improper requirements.

Three of the twelve schools named in the suit are located in South Jersey:

Northern Valley Regional High School District (Bergen County)

Bellmawr School District (Camden County)

Sterling Regional High School District (Camden County)

Winslow Township School District (Camden County)
