Catalina H.S. Student Deported for Marijuana

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2007 at 5:53 PM

Here's a sad story about a high school student whose backpack was searched because he was incoherent. They found "what looked like marijuana," and the whole family has now been deported to Mexico because they were here illegally. They had been living here for six years.

I think there could've been a different punishment for the student without dragging the whole family into it.

This article doesn't address whether the family was hard-working or employed, whether they contributed to the community or society, what kind of students their children were, etc.

One hundred students marched peacefully from the high school to the police station as a protest.
