Students march on despite disciplinary warnings
— reported by KHOU CBS Channel 11
Students protesting proposed immigration reform continued their march again Wednesday, despite warnings of disiplinary action from school administrators.
HPD reports two protesters were arrested for disorderly conduct in the 1200 block of Alabama. It’s not clear what school they attend.
The largest protest Wednesday involved about 150 students who walked out of Galena Park High School and gathered in the stadium.
Alvin High School reported about 100 students meeting before the start of the school day to protest. They marched northbound on Highway 35 to the Pearland city limits with a police escort, spokeswoman Shirley Brothers said.
“The consequences for students who violate the standards of conduct will be more severe. A repeat of [Tuesday’s] demonstrations could cause students to be suspended for up to three days, or be removed,” a statement from HISD superintendent Dr. Abe Saavedra said.
