Parents in Illinois are outraged over a move by a local high school to scrap its girls basketball team's trip to Arizona over the Grand Canyon State’s new immigration law.
The Highland Park High School varsity basketball team has been selling cookies for months to raise money for a tournament in Arizona.
Now, after winning their first conference title in 26 years, the girls are being denied the opportunity to play in the tournament due to uncertainty over how a new Arizona law that makes it a crime to be in the country illegally will be enforced -- and because the trip “would not be aligned” with the school's “beliefs and values,” Assistant Superintendent Suzan Hebson told the Chicago Tribune.
This parent summed the whole thing up very well.
“The school has sent children to China, they’ve sent children to South America, they’ve sent children to the Czech Republic, but somehow Arizona is more unsafe for them than those places,” he said.
“The beliefs and values of China are apparently aligned since they approved that trip,” he added.
So there you have it - the practices of China, forced abortions, totalitarian government, and suppression of virtually every freedom known to man is not in conflict with this schools values but a state in the US attempting to prevent people from illegally entering the country, bringing drugs with them, killing American citizens and law-enforcement personnel, and sucking our economy dry is.
As the title says, there is a simple solution to this - recall the school board and replace it with one that will clean house of these anti-American, criminal-supporting bastards.
