Betsy DeVos says schools can call ICE on undocumented students.

Various groups pointed out that a 1982 Supreme Court decision guarantees education for all kids.

Immigration attorneys warn that Devos’ comments could have a chilling impact on attendance by immigrant students.

The ACLU joined the chorus of protests, saying in a statement: “Let’s be clear: Any school that reports a child to ICE would violate the Constitution.”

President Trump on Thursday nominated a fellow at an anti-immigrant group, known as the Center for Immigration Studies, to run federal refugee program.

Mortensen has written often against undocumented immigrants, referring to the “myth of the noble, law-abiding illegal alien.”

He has accused undocumented immigrants of “destroying the lives of American men, women, and children.”

Mortensen is awaiting approval by the Senate.

The requirement comes from an April 13th agreement signed between ICE and the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

But critics note that it could have a chilling effect on potential sponsors, leading many children remaining in detention.

And we began a long-term commitment to examining business and social responsibility.

Here are 10 series and stories from 2017 that offer a window into how Capital & Main made sense of an extraordinary year in the history of our nation and state.
