Some Still Mad Over New Mexico Teen's Deportation

Some teachers at Roswell High School and members of the Roswell, N.M., community are still upset over how a high school senior was sent back to Mexico three months ago after a local policeman assigned to the school ticketed her for driving without a license.

A March 4 article published by the Associated Press provides details not reported earlier about the debate in that community over whether it was appropriate for a police officer to call immigration authorities to a school campus. See "New Mexico Teen Detained at School and Deported." For an Education Week article on the subject of school authorities' responsibilities in relating to immigration authorities, see "With Immigrants, Districts Balance Safety, Legalities."
