School districts on border patrol

EVERY DAY, they sneak across borders, hundreds of them, hoping to blend in, hoping for a better future. Danger may lurk on the horizon, but they're determined to forge ahead. These illegals aren't crossing barbed-wire fences that guard the Mexican border, carrying everything they own on their backs. Instead, they carry backpacks filled with books and head to school - but still face a just-as-daunting reality if they get caught. Hundreds of students from different parts of the city breach the borders of suburban districts every day in pursuit of a better education.
