DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Students at Moisés E. Molina High School in Dallas walked out of their classes Thursday as part of the Day Without Immigrants movement happening around the United States.

An estimated 200 students walked out of the school and into a parking lot.

The walkout was coordinated through social media as a walk in solidarity with others who wanted to make a statement about immigration.

Several students told CBS 11 that their parents didn’t have legal status and wanted to walk out to support their parents.

The Dallas school district said they allowed the students the opportunity to express their First Amendment rights.

The Day Without Immigrants movement was felt in North Texas and around the U.S. as many restaurants were either short-staffed or closed.

  1. Write them up. It’s against the rules to walk out of class and school during school hours. If possible suspend each one of them and let them miss 2 or 3 days of school for their little tantrum. Then, if they are breaking the law by disturbing the peace outside, write them a ticket and let their illegal parents pay for that too. Make sure causing good, hard working, Americans problems backfires on the lazy, entitled, illegals.

    A Day Without Immigrants = DWI. Maybe they should’ve come up with a different name for this event.
