Non-compliance with federal law isn't an act of compassion. What you give to an illegal you have taken from someone who earned it. They too might be an immigrant, in fact it is likely, but being here lawfully, they unlike the illegal have a right to it. They earned it. By forcing schools to comply or lose funding, we assure that benefit will be there for the rightful recipients but also that cannot be leveraged by unscrupulous administrators to coerce votes for the politicians who control them..
