House Rep. Mike Ritze (R-OK) Suggests Handing Non-English Speaking Students Over to ICE

Oklahoma Republican House Representative, Mike Ritze, created chaos after suggesting that the state turn over non-English speakers to ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) as an alternative method of conserving money. He claims that Oklahoma would be able to save $60 million by handing over the 82,000 non-English speaking students to immigration to verify if they really are “U.S Citizens”.

“Identify them and then turn them over to ICE to see if they truly are citizens — and do we really have to educate noncitizens?” Ritze asked.

In 1982, the United States Supreme Court decided in the case Plyler Vs. Doe that states are strictly prohibited from denying undocumented students education

Ritze, who made the comments in an interview with KWTV-News9, claimed his comments were on behalf of the Oklahoma Republican Platform Caucus, who’s membership included some of the most conservative Republicans in the GOP, but countless members of the Oklahoma Republican Platform Caucus swiftly sided against the proposal. The group’s leader, Rep. Chuck Strohm, said the idea was never discussed at any of their meetings

Republican State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister called the idea “utterly shameful,” and House Speaker Charles McCall released a statement Friday saying the proposal had never been considered by House Republicans.
