“They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

 

Nov 8, 2016.  I was in my house playing Call of Duty Black Ops 2 on my PS3 and my mom got a text and it said, “your child must come to school tomorrow, and if he or she doesn’t come, you will lose $50.”  My mom did not say anything.  She asked my cousin David to translate the message, and he said, “Ivan necesita ir a la escuela mañana.”  If he doesn’t go, you will lose $50 and I was thinking was wtf I thought my school cared more about us then money so I went back to my game and I thought to myself so what if they don't like us what if they like us because they get want free money by just telling us “if your child does not come to school you will lose $50.

 

My mom was thinking to herself, “the school cares more about money than my child.”  I asked my mom if I could stay home, and she said no because she was mad that she would lose money from the school.  She thought that the school cared about our future so she told me what does this mean “if you don’t go to school I lose $50 that’s not fair what if I am sick tomorrow and don’t go did they think off that”  that day later my mom knew why did said that because it was a day without Mexicans because Trump did a speech on Mexicans.  So I went to school and it was just a little bit of students in the school and there was a teacher that in the day without Mexicans.

 

Later that day at school some students and I went to the office and told them can we go home and a fat noizy lazy lady came and said I will call Mrs. Griffith to go to your class so she came and told us you guys can go home but, you need a parent to be here. So after so told us that I felt so mad and I wanted to talk to Mr. Taylor and all that he told the class was trump is in the white house there is nothing that we can do about it. So later that day I came in lunch and I was talking to Mr.Taylor and Ms. Debe, two other people a man and a girl so we were talking about how to was not fair that we all Mexican can just not do it we can do it but we can not because we were at school and we can’t leave without someone in your house or your mom or dad but I don’t have a dad so I can’t go home. When I was walking home I thought to myself why did my mom make me stay home so I said “I will have a talk.” So when I got home I was talking to my Mom and I told her why did I go to school and that was the last I said...
