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.

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.

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.

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.....»»

Joe Biden Continues His Fight Against Sexual Violence On College Campuses With Inspiring Essay

Joe Biden. What a gem.

Earlier this week, the 47th (and arguably the best) Vice President penned an inspiring essay pledging to continue his life's work of ending sexual violence against women, and specifically, on college campuses. With funding for such programs in question under the current administration, the politician believes it's on us to "to change the culture and make colleges safer for everyone." Related: Barack Obama Shed Tears After Dropping Malia Off At Harvard The 74-year-old wrote: "Nothing was more important to me than continuing my life's work to end violence against women. This is a battle I've been fighting for more than 20 years—since before I wrote the Violence Against Women Act that was passed in 1994—and it's one I thought we'd been winning. Since 1994, domestic-violence rates have dropped by 63 percent. Rape crisis centers, battered-women's shelters, and survivor hotlines have sprung up across the country. But it seems like time has stood still on college campuses. I was heartbroken by some of the studies I read as vice president: Data showed that we have made virtually no progress for college-age women." It's true, he continued: "More than half of intimate-partner violence occurs before the victim has reached her 25th birthday, and one in five women will be sexually assaulted in her college career. We also know that sexual assault does not end with the attack: The physical, emotional, and interpersonal effects can last a lifetime. Without adequate support, survivors are at risk of suffering debilitating mental-health challenges and dropping out of school. As a result, campus sexual assault affects public health, diminishes quality of life, and reduces the earning potential of thousands of women." These startling statistics are exactly why Biden is "asking students to hold one another accountable and to intervene if they see someone being targeted for assault" -- especially now: "It baffles the mind that some federal officials believe this guidance is not necessary. Now is not the time to go backward. It is abundantly clear that we still live in a culture in which violence against women is allowed—even encouraged—to persist. There are still men who believe they have the right to hurt a woman, and women who believe they must have done something to deserve it." Biden will be traveling around the country speaking to college campuses this fall "to deliver a simple message: It's on all of us to stop sexual violence."

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.].....»»

Meanwhile we can't even get a look at Donald Trump's tax returns. Emory University has just made public nine very personal letters written by Barack Obama to his girlfriend Alexandra McNear from 1982 to 1984. The couple met when they were both students at Occidental College and attempted to keep their relationship going long-distance when Barack transferred across the country to Columbia University. Related: Barack Dated Another Woman At The Same Time As Michelle — And Asked Her To Marry Him First! While the letters serve as a fascinating chronicle for historians of Obama's time as a college student and recent graduate just getting started at Business International, they're also insanely personal, revealing details of a romance long before Michelle Obama! For instance, he describes a vivid memory of a moment they spent cuddling at a friend's home: "A young black man with his arm behind his head, staring at the ceiling with moist eyes, and a young white woman resting her head on his arm, alone and facing the swirling expanse, outside the room, inside themselves, separate in the eye of the storm." Dang. So poetic! The sentiments, written during a period when Barack and Alexandra are growing apart, are more sad and confused than the public servant we've known the last decade. See a few of the standout excerpts (below): On His Ending Relationship "I think of you often, though I stay confused about my feelings. It seems we will ever want what we cannot have; that's what binds us; that's what keeps us apart." "I am not so naïve as to believe that a distinct line exists between romantic love and the more quotidian, but perhaps finer bonds of friendship, but I can feel the progression from one to the other (in my mind)." "I trust you know that I miss you, that my concern for you is as wide as the air, my confidence in you as deep as the sea, my love rich and plentiful. Love, Barack." On Healthy Debate "[The challenge] lies in forging a unity, mixing it up, constructing the truth to be found between the seams of individual lives. All of which requires breaking some sweat. Like a good basketball game. Or a fine dance. Or making love." On Serving Mankind "I don't distinguish between struggling with the world and struggling with myself. … I enter a pact with other people, other forces in the world, that their problems are mine and mine are theirs. … The minute others imprint my senses, they become me and I must deal with them or else close part of myself off and make myself and the world smaller, lukewarm." On Visiting His Childhood Home Of Indonesia "I can't speak the language well anymore. I'm treated with a mixture of puzzlement, deference and scorn because I'm American, my money and my plane ticket back to the U.S. overriding my blackness. I see old dim roads, rickety homes winding back towards the fields, old routes of mine, routes I no longer have access to." On Being Broke After College "One week I can't pay postage to mail a resume and writing sample, the next I have to bounce a check to rent a typewriter..." "Salaries in the community organizations are too low to survive on right now, so I hope to work in some more conventional capacity for a year, allowing me to store up enough nuts to pursue those interests next." Tons of fascinating insights into the POTUS we miss the mostus. The letters are now officially public record at Emory's Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library.

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.
