Skip to comments.Group of students protest against classmate's deportation
Posted on 11/06/2007 1:32:02 PM PST by radar101
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.
Let me just save these “journalists some time. Next occasion you have for writing one of these hand-wringing boo-hoo stories about deportations, just use the following template:
D) Jesus Christo
B) babysitting her dozen helpless children
C) discovering a cure for cancer
D) roving hordes
A) the INS
B) government hit squads
show up at the
A) tiny but impeccable bungalow
B) business gates
C) lettuce patch
and haul away the terrified
A) mother of nine
B) hardworking man who was merely searching for a better life
A) gasps of horror
B) howls of outrage
C) beatific calls for forgiveness for “they know not what they do”.
Great! ... Laughed uncontrollably ...
how many protesters were arrested for truancy?
Should read when their drug supplier got busted
5 will get you 10 that the 100 “protestors” and/or their parents were also illegals.
Anybody have a notion of how many students attend this high school.
I am curious as to how many of these protesting students would have been illegals themselves.
You do know that’s a “classic” don’t you?! Mind if I start it winding it’s way around the world in an email?
Did they run out of worthwhile causes and have a mandatory protest requirement they had to fulfill for class? Or were they simply allowed to get out of class to join the protest?
This kid probably does have friends in school that will miss him even though he is apparently an idiot. However, they can always go visit him in Mexico.
Ya just damn well know that if you followed every one of these hundred kids home, mommy and daddy would either be illegals or liberals....
Catalina High School
It’s a fairly large school in the center of Tucson.
It is so nice to be OUT of Tucson, a liberal bastion in an otherwise beautiful part of the country.
God Bless Texas
“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 doubt if these kids thought this up on their own. I’d bet money one of their “activist” teachers put this idea in their heads.
A solution to all the problems...you go back to Mexico and we'll drop all drug charges against your son...so that when he comes back, he won't have any strikes against him.
Meanwhile...daddy stays here....gets a court date for deportation hearings...is released on his own recognizance...goes back to work and sends money back to Mexico...where it helps THEIR economy instead of ours.
Yep...that'll work just fine.
"Hey look Americans...we're doing something. Remember us, November 8th." /s
In the meantime, the picture painted by the media is.... those mean and crazy Republicans demonstrate once again how much they hate Hispanics. The Democrats are our friends.
And that's a damned shame, IMO.
He learned a valuable life lesson:
walked 5 miles in protest. probably the most exercise they have done since the school year started or since they illegally crossed the border.
Or an activist parent, who’s not going to ditch class if mom says you should ditch class... and get your friends to join you even.
I think you underestimate the power of friendship and causes at such an age.
If it had happened to one of my friends back when I was in high school, we'd had the entire student body of 1200 strong marching. The Franciscans teachers would have given it their blessing. That was back in the early sixties.
“Good old high school student, lets ditch class and call it a protest.”
My thought exactly. I’ve seen it happen many times. Seldom does a good student participate in such as this. Heck, many of them will do anything to get out of class, even give blood at the bloodmobile.
Make that 1554 and counting.
I love happy stories.

Maybe I do. I went to school back in the 50’s and 60’s and they would have kicked us out of school for that sort of thing.
Are they checking the protesters status?
I was thinking the same thing....
Just being the stoner that American students don’t want to be. (/sarcasm)
A 17 year old incoherent *freshman* was deported? This is a huge loss for our great land.
Boo-hoo and Bye-bye.
Inner city School?
Most likely highly Hispanic with goodly dusting of illegal Hispanics.
Does there exist any community of Franciscans that doesn’t have some whack jobs among them?
You’re not supposed to drink the BONG water dude!
