The Daily Show's Senior Latino Correspondent Al Madrigal (also known as their Señor Latino Correspondent) went down to Tucson on Monday to investigate the city's recently instated Mexican-American studies ban.
Madrigal spoke with local proponents of the law which has outlawed the Mexican-American study program in K-12 public schools. School board member Michael Hicks gave justifications for the ban which were... err, underwhelming.
School board member Michael Hicks says he's never sat in on a Mexican-American studies class, but based on "hearsay" he presumes that they teach a violent anti-"gringo" message.
"I chose not to go to any of their classes. Why even go? Why even go? I base my thoughts off of hearsay of others," Hicks said to Madrigal.
