Teacher in race flap has defenders

A Jefferson High School teacher who was removed from her classroom after being accused of making racist remarks was defended Wednesday by several students, who said the complainant was late to class and missed crucial aspects of her lecture on Arizona's new immigration enforcement law.   “She said, ‘I'm not saying this is my opinion. ... Maybe this is the opinion of the people who passed the law,'” said Leslie Vasquez, 18.

Vasquez said the teacher brought up the Arizona legislation and posed an analogy: “Think about the United States being your home and you have control of what's happening in it.”

Unfettered immigration, the teacher told her students, could be perceived as losing control over one's home.
