Jeb Bush isn’t concerned with immigration status.

Instead of deporting this family of illegal aliens, everyone came to their rescue including Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

María Ordoñez went to register her teenage daughter and son at an Orange County middle school, hoping they would get a first-rate education, but instead they were threatened with deportation.

Ordoñez, her husband and two children returned Tuesday to Glenridge Middle School, joined by advocacy group Latino Leadership and surrounded by a swarm of mostly Spanish-language media. School officials, however, said it was all a misunderstanding.

The children were referred to Lee Middle School, where they will start school today, because Glenridge lacks a bilingual program.

Still, the Ordoñezes and the advocacy group were not happy with the way they say the school — straddling the higher-income neighborhoods of Baldwin Park and Winter Park — treated the family last week. Even Gov. Jeb Bush chimed in, commenting that schools should not be concerned with immigration status.

I guess Jeb didn’t read the report on how educating illegal children is costing Floridians more than $4 billion a year!
