U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services worker asks a school district for information about a student’s immigration status

A 14-year-old ninth-grader moved with her family to the United States when she was 6. The student’s parents have recently come under suspicion for housing undocumented relatives. A U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) worker contacts the school district’s superintendent to find out whether the student’s family has provided the district with documentation of the student’s immigration status. The superintendent forwards the request to the principal of the student’s school. The principal is aware that the student’s family does not have proper documentation, but feels uncomfortable sharing the information.
