Hispanic students vanishing from Alabama schools

Via Statesman — Alabama is another state that has passed new laws to crack down on immigration. Not only do these laws have an effect on daily life, but they are taking a toll on children’s education as well.

Hispanic students have started vanishing from Alabama public schools just days after a court ruling that upheld the state’s tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration.

Education officials said scores of immigrant families have withdrawn their children from classes or kept them home this week, afraid that sending the kids to school would draw attention from authorities.

  1. F#ckin’ horrible! I hate to say it, but I hope these racist, xenophobic f*cks suffer for the crap they’re doing.

    The alabama law is indicative of mob politics, ignorant politicians, even tribal politics. It demonstrates a lack of understanding of the Latino communities positive contribution to american society and the potential they have politically. The problem lies in Washington DC failure to put in a postive immigration policy between Mexico and the US.
    Immigration to better live conditions has been a fact of life through out history. This will not stop. If it means leaving Mexico and coming to the US for a better life or suffer economically, coming to US will seem a better solution. What needs to happen is to have Hispanic Leadership at the National Level. Without leadership, we will have to suffer this ignorance for a bit longer.
    La Raza, USHCC, etc, not have exhibited any leadership. They have all exhibited submission, a willing to except good words not good policy or actions. We don’t want “give me” programs. Our people want to get an education, work and contribute!!
