About a hundred students demonstrated outside their Tucson high school, then marched five miles downtown to protest against the removal to Mexico of a classmate and his family.
School officials searched the backpack of a 17-year-old Catalina High School freshman who was incoherent last week, and say they found suspected marijuana and called police.
When the boy's parents arrived, police asked to see their drivers' licenses.
The parents acknowledged living in the United States illegally with their two sons, including a sixth-grader.
Police notified the Border Patrol, who took the parents and the sons into custody. The mother and boys were voluntarily returned to Mexico and the father was held for deportation proceedings.
So just out of curiosity, because the article doesn't mention, did they actually have driver's licenses...?
Tough. That’s what happens when you break the law. Oh, yeah, and get high. Idiots.
A like happy endings like this.
Are they checking the protester’s status?
I guess I’m supposed to have sympathy right?
Is the MSM telling me to feel bad that a dope smoking illegal who was going to public school, who used other social services, whose parents probably have under the table jobs and pay little to no taxes, who is here “illegally” was sent back to his home? Ahhhhhh, o how terrible!
Good old high school student, “let’s ditch class and call it a protest”, heck if they play it right they might even get class credit. I bet most of the “protesters” never even met the kid.
I wonder how much tax money these students have contributed to the health, education, etc. of illegal immigrants?
To bad they weren’t protesting for the removal.
The student's only comment was a very slow "HUHHHH?" which he followed by trying to dial a phone number on a television remote.

“Police notified the Border Patrol, who took the parents and the sons into custody. The mother and boys were voluntarily returned to Mexico and the father was held for deportation proceedings.”
And this is a problem, how????
Hard queso, kiddies. Even legal immigrants can be deported for just cause.
The kids accent was probably bad enough to begin with and after smoking that Wacky tabbacco, he definately became tounge-tied and incoherent :D that must have been some really good illegal grass
If he was smart, he’d better dissapear before his dad gets back to mexico cause i guarantee he’s gonna get it for wrecking the family dream of free education and what ever else they were getting.
Formulaic leftist diatribe.
