Students at Fresno High are seen going over the fence at Fresno High on the first day of the walkout. This clip was taken by a student on a phone that has the capability of shooting video. It is uncut and gives you a sense of the excitement that was happening at the start of the walkouts that took place last week.

Yes, I'm satisfied with almost all walkouts that had emerged, despite the fact that a great portion of students who walked out only did so to take a day off! At the cost of losing valuable education, schools have been drain of their economic status! According to recent articles found on the "Daily Bulletin", a school district in any part Southern California had an estimated loss of 2-3 million in just one day! Why would this be important? Because it's a supplement to our Immigration reform, as well as the previous protests and bussiness walkouts! If we confirm our success, we will had taken a step forward to abolishing the existing racism that still lurks around the corners of America! We must all coexist with each other, and confirm the reality that "MOST IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT ASSOCITATED WITH THE 9/11 ATTACK, NOR DO THEY COFISCATE AN AMERICAN'S EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES. DO AMERICANS REALLY WANNA TAKE THE CHALLENGE OF CLEANING THE TOILETS, OR BEING ENSLAVED IN THE FARM FIELDS FROM DAWN TO DUSK?

As a hispanic teenager, I'm a major advocate of the immigration reform bill! If you oppose this, become informed here: http://www.cnn.com or http://www.immigrantsolidarity.org , a major pro-immigration organization!

For all those who support, why not discuss this with your president here:
