(KHOU-TV) HOUSTON—Carolina Osorio and her three children recently arrived in Houston from Honduras with her three children. The young mother was surprised to learn that the U.S. government requires her children to be enrolled in school.

They will attend Las Americas Newcomer School on Bellaire in southwest Houston.

“I pretty much enroll students every single day,” said Principal Marie D. Moreno. “We don’t turn any students away.”
