    Some Immigration Marchers Pay High Price

    By ANNA JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

    CHICAGO - Six employees at a seafood restaurant in Houston were fired this week after skipping work to take part in a pro-immigration march. In Detroit, 21 immigrants lost their jobs as meat cutters after attending a similar protest last month.

    And several students at a high school near Tampa, Fla., were suspended this week for walking out of class to go to a demonstration.

    Across the country, workers and students have paid a price for attending the immigration rallies that have recently swept the nation. They have lost jobs or been cited for truancy for joining the hundreds of thousands who have protested proposed federal legislation that would crack down on illegal immigrants.
