Pro-Trump Student Tries To Get Classmate Expelled—And It Backfired In The Best Possible Way

By Chet Dawson

We hold "Dreamers" to higher standards than most American citizens.

Regardless of how you feel about undocumented immigrants or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), it takes a special kind of hate to cheer for the deportation of people who came to the U.S. as children and have known no other country. In exchange for protected status, DACA participants, or "Dreamers," voluntarily identify themselves as undocumented, promise to commit no crimes, and actively contribute to society via scholarship, military service or entrepreneurship.

With President Trump threatening to rescind the protected status of 800,000 young Americans, a lot of people are terrified — for good reason. A Transylvania University student, Taylor Ragg, targeted fellow student and "Dreamer" Paola Garcia on social media. Ragg, the kind of Trump supporter who probably sleeps in his Chinese-made Make America Great Again hat, publicly harassed Paola, saying he was going to "send her back."

Ragg posted this screenshot (since deleted) in a Facebook group called "10th Crusade Enthusiasts":
