February 23, 2017 By Diane Smith More than 15,000 students were absent from Fort Worth schools on “A Day Without Immigrants” on Feb. 16, an indication that immigrant families responded to President Donald Trump’s immigration strategy by keeping their children at home.

Overall, nearly 15,200 students... Continue »
