One more example of adults using children to highlight their agenda and get their 15 mins of fame. These people know full well that these girls will be "safe" if they would go to Az. The only thing they have done is call to the attention of "ICE" that they do, or will have members of the team that are illegal immigrants. Seems to me like they may have called attention to the ,so called ,"safety problem" themselves. If this is not the case,how silly is this?

.....and once again,a prime example for the young students at this school that laws need not be followed in this country. Have funs kids,break all the laws you can,then remind your school and parents who supported this endeavor about this little support of law breakers. However I ask that you be safe!

What business does this school official have using a position to further a personal belief.

A job that is publically funded with Illinois tax dollars.

One student, Marissa Medansky, was just on Fox News. I hate to tell Marissa, but no one in L.E. would want to stop her for anything. Good grief, ask your parents for facial surgery......whew! And then leave politics to the adults. You're little opinion is just that, little!

And so help me those parents had better get all their money back - some of these trips are very expensive even with fundraising and such to help supplement.

Punish the girls for their hard work because someone is angry at someone else.

The Diplomacy of Cringing, Craven Groveling
During talks on human rights, Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner actually apologized to his Chinese counterparts for the Arizona anti illegal immigration law, among other things.
Eyebrows are already being raised by the spectacle.

Mexicans are not "the enemy", many LEGAL immigrants and/or their children have died protecting this country, and that kind of talk takes away moral high ground from the position of securing the borders and enforcing the law. That said, childrens' opportunities such as a national basketball tournament should NOT be used as political cannon fodder, regardless as to it's political leanings (and I personally don't like Az's law).

Red China was okay, and AZ is not. How skewed is that? The girls worked hard for the privilege, and if their parents have given their consent, what is the problem?

Gee, why do we not ask the mothers of the student hikers who accidentally crossed a border how safe travel abroad to some areas is... I'll bet they have a different take.

It's a sanctuary state
It's a state full of liberal pillow biting, capitulating citizens.
It's a state of corrupt politicians.
It's a state where politicians learn to run their office like a mob boss e.g. Obammy.
TERRIBLE state to live in if you need a law enforced.
And I have to live here.

If these parents don't FORCE the school board to back down then I don't fell sorry for them at all. Unless they go the extra mile for theirkids then it's all just a show.
