More than two dozen Houston students detained after walkout
Associated Press

Houston police have taken at least 26 Houston public school students into custody after dozens of students walked out of classes today.

That's as a week of student walkouts continues to protest congressional efforts to crack down on illegal immigrants.

A Houston school district spokesman says about 150 students left classes at Madison High and Dowling Middle School.

Police say 26 students were arrested on daytime curfew violations and taken to the Harris County juvenile detention center. Buses were sent to take the others back to school.

Near El Paso, estimates ranged from 100 to 250 students who walked out of Canutillo (kan-yoo-TEE'-yoh) High School today.

Near Dallas, about 60 students walked out of R-L Turner High School in Carrollton.
