Ennis students involved in immigration protests barred from prom
KTEN Local News
ENNIS, Texas Some students won’t be allowed into Ennis High School’s senior prom tonight.
School officials say that’s because they were suspended for taking part in immigration protests earlier this week.
As many as 130 students at Ennis High School, Ennis Junior High and the Sixth Grade Center were suspended yesterday for taking part in Thursday’s march.
There have been similar protests around the country against federal immigration proposals that call for a crackdown on illegal immigrants.
Many students say they’re upset that the suspensions — which end Monday — preclude them from attending the prom.
But district officials [in Ennis] say the students were warned beforehand and knew what the consequences would be.
