Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools
1) CHIRLA came to Phoenix to "mobilize folks" and "The group's protesters gave the hundreds of high-school students lessons in civil disobedience" (see excerpt below)
2) CHIRLA has "close ties to the Mexican government" (http://www.americanpatrol.com/REFERENCE/CHIRLA.html)
3) CHIRLA is "A registered non-profit corporation that receives U.S. taxpayer funds" (www.discoverthenetworks.com)
4) CHIRLA promotes economic justice and amnesty for illegal alliens (www.discoverthenetworks.com)
1) How did CHIRLA "mobilize" hundreds of school children? Did they go into to the highschools to do this during school hours (which is when the"walkout" took place)?
2) How do school children "walkout"? Isn't that mass truency?
3) Where were the school officials during this "walkout"? Did the school officials try to stop them? It appears that our tax dollars were not only paying for CHIRLA to be there but we were also paying those teachers and school officials to be teaching our children at the time.
5) Did all those kids, during school hours, hop in their cars and drive down to the capitol in mass or did the schools use school buses to get the children to the Capitol (also on the tax payers dime)? The later seems to be the only plausible ansswer
6) Is anyone as outraged as i am that school children were exploited for political purposes on this field trip which later turned violent?
7) Is anyone outraged that school officials and teachers appeared to aid and abet this crime?

About 65 members from the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) arrived at the Capitol midday Thursday. The 26-year-old organization advocates for the constitutional rights of immigrants and refugees, spokesman Jorge Mario Cabrera said.
Their main goal for coming to Arizona was to mobilize folks and get them to empower themselves, Cabrera said.
The group's protesters gave the hundreds of high-school students lessons in civil disobedience, including teaching different chants and a unity clap.
"Go home and tell them why you walked out, so they can be here tomorrow," activist Maria Rodriguez of CHIRLA told the students.
