Thousands of students are pouring out of class to resist pending federal legistlation designed to curb various aspects of illegal immigration. High schools all over Southern California report children leaving class. One young activist told students to educate themselves on the matter before walking out, if you're just doing it to ditch, save yourself the embarrassment. Still, having once been a teenager who walked out of class myself a few times, I know a good chunk of kids are just along for the ride.
In other news, a select group of student leaders were granted audiences with Mayor Villaraigosa and Lt. Governor Bustamante.
Summer is not too far off. It will be interesting to see if the protests peter out before then, or if we have a repeat of 1968.
