Student Walkouts and Arpaio Raids Reported Throughout Phoenix

Reports of spontaneous walkouts from high schools throughout the city are spreading. Carrying homemade signs reading "Education, not Deportation," "Educate, don't hate," and "We are Human," groups of students are walking along sidewalks, singing songs, chanting, texting, and tweeting.
