In October, the National School Boards Association labeled parents ‘domestic terrorists’ in a letter to President Biden’s administration. The letter received widespread backlash from people across the political spectrum and influenced the Department of Justice to target concerned parents who speak out on their childrens behalf at school board meetings. Attorney General Merrick Garland went so far as to recommend using the Patriot Act against parents. Now, it has been revealed that Biden’s Education Secretary, Miguel Cardona, actually solicited the NSBA letter in an email exchange with the NSBA CEO. FOX News Reports–
“Education Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited the much-criticized letter from the National School Boards Association that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists, according to an email exchange reviewed by Fox News.
The email exchange indicates Cardona was more involved with the letter’s creation than previously known.
President Biden’s Department of Justice relied on the NSBA letter, which suggested using the Patriot Act against parents, in creating its own memo directing the FBI to mobilize in support of local education officials.
A Department of Education spokesperson denied that Cardona solicited the NSBA letter, despite the email indicating he did. ”
Just hours after the shocking discovery was made, the Cardona is facing calls to resign for his role in the NSBA letter.
“The truth comes out…Woke @SecCardona asked @NSBAPublicEd to write the letter @TheJusticeDept used to mobilize the FBI to begin treating parents like domestic terrorists. Cardona should resign.” Senator Rick Scott (R-Fl.) Tweeted
Cardona should resign. https://t.co/jjjAnlMkTX

“It appears Biden’s Education Secretary may have helped initiate the NSBA’s now-retracted letter to the DOJ requesting they spy on parents under the Patriot Act,” Banks tweeted. “If true, he needs to resign.”
