BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (AP) Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools in the wake of a court ruling that upheld the state's tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration.
Education officials say scores of immigrant families have withdrawn their children from classes or kept them home this week, afraid that sending the kids to school would draw attention from authorities.
There are no precise statewide numbers. But several districts with large immigrant enrollments from small towns to large urban districts reported a sudden exodus of children of Hispanic parents, some of whom told officials they planned to leave the state to avoid trouble with the law, which requires schools to check students' immigration status.
The anxiety has become so intense that the superintendent in one of the state's largest cities, Huntsville, went on a Spanish-language television show Thursday to try to calm widespread worries

Looks like it’s working great. Now every state has a model.
See also my posting from this morning. Same article, lots of comments...
They just moved to another State.This law needs to go national.
Get the northern and coastal states to pass these laws and working in and south they would all be squeezed right into Perry’s backyard...
If they are illegals, then great news.
Tax-payer money is saved.
It is not impossible to combat illegals. Take that Perry and RINO establishment!
They cleaned up NY when they started enforcing the little laws like squeegee guys and graffiti. It was not complex and it mostly affected the people doing the larger crimes.
Self-deportation...a wonderful thing!
No, sane people know it's quite easy. But listening to the looney Left, you'd think that it's impossible to ever even identify an illegal alien.
It’s not clear from the article whether this will really work. School officials are urging them to return, no problemo. We won’t report you to the police.
I’m not sure if they are concerned about the kids, or worried about union jobs, or working for the Democrat mafia that wants their votes. But I doubt whether this will work unless people keep the pressure on.
“””Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools”””
Meanwhile in Florida there is an unexpected surge in Hispanic enrollment.
Or to be really clear about what's going on: Children of Illegal Immigrants Vanish from Alabama Schools.
That's because schools get paid per capita (some of it federal money). They could care less if the student is illegal.
I’m sure they’ll be heading to NCarolina shortly.
For all those morons who say we can’t deport 11 million illegals, especially George Will, Rick Perry, and Newt Gingrich, and too many here on FR - we don’t have to - they will deport themselves.
Many would have already gone back given the bad economy and the lack of jobs, but they have stayed on because of the hope that Obama or a Bush/McCain like Republican will give them amnesty and citizenship. This belief is aided by the Alinsky organizations like Move-On and La Raza, who tell them hang around, amnesty is around the corner.
Once it becomes clear to them that amnesty is not around the corner and employers who hire them will be going to jail and paying big fines (the current but unenforced laws) you will see and exodus from the USA as a whole just like you are witnessing in Alabama and Arizona (and in Virginia, where local crackdowns have sent illegals into Maryland).
Two birds with one stone!
Theft of tax dollars and classroom overcrowding.
