Texas high school students protest immigration arrest

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (WKOW) -- Students at Stephen F. Austin High School staged a walk-out protest yesterday, in response to a student being held by immigration agents.

Officials say the student was arrested after he was involved in physical altercations both on and off campus.

Authorities say he wasn't targeted by immigration agents until after his arrest.

School officials said his infractions were serious. Students at the protest said the altercations stemmed from the student being bullied about his immigration status.
