Questions must be asked about residency verification

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I took great interest in a recent article about the residency verification process that’s ongoing in the Greenwich Public Schools. The article claimed that “15% of (Greenwich) elementary students have not verified residency.”

When I was a member of the Republican Town Committee, a few years ago I remember that the chairman of the Board of Education at that time, Steve Anderson, addressed us. He announced the “good news” that “the children of Port Chester, N.Y., will no longer be crossing the border to enter into our schools.”

I raised my hand and asked him, “What about the illegal aliens?”

At that time there was no effort to stop illegals from entering into our school system. So I said, “Let me understand, the children from Port Chester can’t cross the border and enter into our schools, but the children of Mexico can?”

There was no response.
