    A young valedictorian from Texas has stirred controversy after she tweeted that she will be attending the University of Texas-Austin with a full scholarship and that she is undocumented.

    Mayte Lara Ibarra, a graduate of Crockett High School in Austin, Texas, tweeted photos of herself after graduation and mentioned her 4.5 GPA, her 13 cords and medals and her immigration status.

    More than 9,400 retweets and almost 20,000 likes later, Ibarra deactivated her Twitter account due to the negative backlash and threats she received for her viral tweet.

    One tweet included a person's apparent tip to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's anonymous tip line.



    During Crockett High's recent graduation ceremony on June 3, Ibarra introduced the Pledge of Allegiance as well as the National Anthem.


    During her speech as class valedictorian, Ibarra spoke of the hard work her class put in and what their future might hold, but she didn't mention her immigration history.

    Texas is one of 17 states that allows undocumented students who graduated from an in-state high school or earned a GED to receive in-state tuition.

    "In accordance with state law, Texas universities — including the University of Texas schools —have for decades granted two-semester tuition waivers to valedictorians of Texas public high schools, without regard to their residency status," Kylie Fitzpatrick, a media relations specialist at UT Austin said in a statement. "State law also does not distinguish between documented and undocumented graduates of Texas high schools in admissions and financial aid decisions. University policies reflect that law."

    I hate how the media takes twitter comments so seriously. People talking shit behind a screen, not using their real names and they act like its to be taken seriously.

    I'm a Texas Ex and am bothered by it. I wish her well, but she should apply as foreign student.

    Also, she is in for culture shock. She was the one eyed man in the land of the blind at Crockett HS. What were her SAT and ACT scores?

    And if she thinks she's good looking and has nice legs she is really in for it. Shes a UT 2. Maybe she'll be the first Pi Phi or Tri Delt illegal alien. Lol. Good luck! Don't wait for a call. They send a lovely card.

    My wife is a US citizen and was not able to claim residency in the state she moved to for college for at least a year because of their rules and had to pay out of state tuition, which is about 4 times the resident rate. This cunt is not even a citizen and gets in state tuition?

    She admits she's illegal and we don't immediately FedEx her ass back to Mexico? Undocumented? Nice euphemism for illegal. What fucking planet are we on?

    That's largely my point.

    If people feel completely comfortable engaging in this kind of disgusting, anti-American behavior in a place like Texas, without the slightest fear of any negative repercussions, imagine what the prevailing attitudes must be in a single party rule, progressive shithole like California.
