But now, thanks to Donald Trump and his hateful rhetoric, she's being made to feel threatened somewhere she should be perfectly safe -- her campus. Related: The Chainsmokers Are Just The Latest Famous Faces To Be Accused Of Racism In an emotional video posted to YouTube, Paola -- who is undocumented but protected by DACA -- says she is now being harassed by racist students telling her to "back to them dirt floors of your homeland." It apparently started when a fellow student named Taylor Ragg posted this inciting message on Facebook: Disgusting. Paola says that started a deluge of messages, including a photo of someone filling out a tip form reporting her to Homeland Security. Paola tells the Lexington Herald Leader she complained to the school that Ragg was in violation of their anti-discrimination policy, but that President Seamus Carey told her Ragg was just "making a recommendation to his readers" which didn't violate the rules. SMH. Related: Miss Texas DRAGGED Donald Trump For Failing To Properly Condemn White Supremacy When the paper reached out to Ragg for his comment on the matter, he wrote back simply: "Lexington Herald Leader is Fake News." Tell us again this has nothing to do with Trump. Go on. In her video, Garcia asks the public for their help in swaying the opinion of the school to protect her by punishing Ragg.

Cowardly Donald Trump Sends Jeff Sessions Out To Officially Announce Plans To Phase Out Obama"s DACA Program!

Don't dream it's over yet, Dreamers. The Trump administration has officially announced it is phasing out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program over the next six months.

The Trump administration has officially announced it is phasing out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program over the next six months. This policy protects almost 800,000 people -- young people raised in America, mind you -- from deportation, and Trump's promise to take it away has been regarded as one of the cruelest decisions made by a president in modern history. Related: Trump Spends Labor Day Highlighting Non-USA Made Products! Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the decision on Tuesday at the Department of Justice, saying Homeland Security had been asked to conduct an "orderly, lawful wind-down" of the "unconstitutional" program implemented by Barack Obama in 2012. Those who were brought into the US illegally as children had been granted temporary protection from deportation due to Obama's executive action. Now, it looks like their fates are in the hands of Congress, which has six months to pass a law that would regulate the status of these Dreamers -- and POTUS is already counting down the days: Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA! — Donald J.

One Of The Dreamers Trump Wants To Deport Died Saving Hurricane Harvey Survivors

If you weren't already disgusted at reports Donald Trump was planning to end DACA, the program that protects child immigrants from deportation, let us tell you the story of just one of these Dreamers.

He hadn't achieved U.S. citizenship, [...] If you weren't already disgusted at reports Donald Trump was planning to end DACA, the program that protects child immigrants from deportation, let us tell you the story of just one of these Dreamers. His name was Alonso Guillen. He was 31 but had entered the United States as a teenager. He hadn't achieved U.S. citizenship, but thanks to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, he had a work permit allowing him to work as a DJ on SuperMix 101.9 FM in Huntington, Texas. Photos: Things Donald Trump Supporters Just Don't Know! When Hurricane Harvey hit, Alonso decided to go the extra mile to try to help his fellow Texans. He and a couple friends borrowed a boat and set out to rescue flood survivors. Authorities say their boat capsized after hitting a bridge around midnight last Wednesday. Only one of the three survived. Tomas Carreon Jr.'s body was discovered on Friday; Alonso's was recovered on Sunday. Even sadder still, Alonso's mother, Rita Ruiz de Guillen -- who lived across the border in Piedras Negras, Mexico -- told the Houston Chronicle she was turned away at the border trying to get a humanitarian visa to bury her son. She said: "When we are with God, there are no borders. Man made borders on this earth." Alonso's sacrifice highlights the problem with ending DACA. We'd be losing hundreds of thousands of good, hardworking Americans. Because that's what these Dreamers are. [Image via Facebook.].....»»

The program allows illegal immigrants who came into the country as children a way to stay in the country without being deported. “It’s incredible to me that you’ll pardon a man who is known for running his prison as a Latino concentration camp and call him a patriot, but then deport kids with a dream to be successful citizens with safe lives,” Lauren wrote on Twitter. “You disgust me. You and your squad of Republican elite/cowards are truly sick humans. Pardoning criminals and criminalizing the vulnerable.” It has been shown that the U.S. government could lose $460 billion in revenue over the next decade if DACA is shut down and 700,000 people could lose their jobs. .@realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/kPWOUWhlWF — Lauren Jauregui (@LaurenJauregui) September 4, 2017.....»»

On Tuesday, the Stratford High School principal gave a speech to her 10th grade class where she made body shaming comments against girls wearing leggings who are not a "size zero or a two." Related: Coach Who Forced Cheerleaders Into Agonizing Splits Has Been Fired Based on a recording obtained by ABC News 4, the South Carolina educator told the students: "(Leggings are) meant to wear underneath a long shirt that covers your heiny, or a long sweater of some type, or a dress. It is not meant to be your actual pants, and if you have a shirt that comes to here, then you are showing everything. Yes, everything... The sad thing is with that, ladies — if someone has not told you this before, I'm going to tell you this now — unless you are a size zero or a two, and you wear something like that, even though you are not fat, you look fat." Once the quote went viral, the Berkeley County School District employee received a flood of backlash for her "poor choice of words." One commenter wrote on a now-deleted Facebook post: "I hope your comment about the kids weight didn't push them over to committing unthinkable actions... You are responsible for all of the kids that go to your school. Due to your poor choice of words you may have instilled a lot of horrible things in the student community." On Thursday, Taylor released the following statement saying she did not intend "to hurt or offend any of my students in any way": "Yesterday and this morning, I met with each class of the Stratford High School student body. I addressed a comment made during a 10th grade assembly and shared from my heart that my intention was not to hurt or offend any of my students in any way. I assured them all that I am one of their biggest fans and invested in their success. After speaking with our students and receiving their support, I am confident that, together, we are ready to move forward and have a wonderful year. Stratford High is a very caring community, and I want to thank all of our parents and students who have offered their support to me and provided me with an opportunity to directly address their concern. I am very proud to be a Stratford Knight." On Friday, a group of senior students wrote and recited a letter of support to their principal where they acknowledge she is "human" and can "make mistakes" just like anybody else. The exchange was filmed and posted on Facebook. See it (below): [Image via Berkeley County School District.].....»»

Yup, an actual candidate touted herself as qualified to be the mayor of Charlotte because she's caucasian. Video: Late Night Slams Trump's Decision To Rescind DACA! Needless to say, Barnette received a ton of backlash for the now-deleted Facebook post, in which she wrote: "VOTE FOR ME…REPUBLICAN & SMART, WHITE, TRADITIONAL." To be fair, other Republican campaign taglines boil down to a similar message -- but at least Donald Trump has the decency will to mask it behind a snappy catchphrase! Barnette, who is running in the September 12 primary, reportedly edited the message and posted a status that read: "There is a group called Congressional Black Caucus. I'm sorry if I described myself as white and it offended others." But the half-baked apology wasn't enough. Even after deleting the now-viral post, Barnette's comments sparked responses from the rest of the state's GOP. Related: Cher SAVAGELY Claps Back At Hater Over DACA GOP Chairman Robin Hayes responded to the viral mess, telling The Charlotte Observer: "Any suggestion that a candidate is more or less qualified for political office based on their skin color alone, is offensive to North Carolina Republicans and we condemn it.
