    Trump supporters here have been crying foul over their treatment by the left ad nauseum. Well, their no angels:

    http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/06/...torian-admits-shes-undocumented-imagestweets/

    Valedictorian Mayte Lara Ibarra has been facing an onslaught of vile hate speech on Twitter after proudly tweeting that she, an intelligent and successful young woman with a full-ride scholarship to University of Texas, is an undocumented Mexican immigrant. Verbal assaults have ranged from attacks on her for using U.S. taxpayer money to fund her education, and accusations of her being “a criminal,” to straight up racism. Ibarra has been thrown under the bus for having a public scholarship out of sheer ignorance and unjust hostility; in Texas, scholarships for undocumented immigrants is nothing new.

    Media relations specialist for UT, Kylie Fitzpatrick, gave a statement that, “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. 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.” Ibarra is facing vicious attacks from right-wing internet zealots because she was brave enough to identify herself as undocumented in a particularly contentious time in immigration politics, especially as Donald Trump continues to spew racist attacks on Hispanics and other minority groups.

    Ibarra’s outstanding achievements and promise to be a great benefit to American society and economic progress for years to come, has been undermined and belittled by the ignorant online hive-mind, who have stooped so low as to call a young woman who was brought to America as a minor a “criminal.” Donald Trump’s infamous “Mexican wall” diatribe has fueled the furor as internet conservatives level insulting memes at the poor girl, like one featuring agrotesque caricature of a Mexican immigrant being thrown over the wall by a grinning Trump. Lately, conservative immigration “policy” has become visibly less about policy and more about inaccurate and racistportrayals of Hispanics. The Hispanic community has been turned into a scapegoat by right-wing xenophobes who try to compensate for their own sense of inadequacy by lying to themselves, and the country, about the richness, importance, and value of Hispanics in America.

    Scholarships for undocumented illegals? I don't give a shit if she turns out to be King of the goddamned universe. If you're an undocumented illegal, get the fuck out.

    Well what exactly is your point? Because she takes tests well we should ignore the fact that she doesn't belong here? I don't care if she's a rapist or a valedictorian...she is here illegally.

    She's not a "criminal", but her parents are. They knowingly broke the law for their own benefit...what else do you call that?

    ONCE...JUST ONCE I would love one of these people to go try this shit in ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH. I Go walk into another country, enroll your kid in their schools with ZERO documentation, expect your child to get everything that school can offer...and then also free college tuition. All the while, no one is allowed to ask you for papers, proof of citizenship, any money whatsoever...and if they do they are racist!

    Let an American family try that. Move to Japan and just squat their for 18 years with your hand out...and then be offended.

    Did they punch her in the face, burn the Mexican flag in front of her and have hundreds of men corner her and throw eggs at her?

    Typical liberal - the rules dont apply to me because I'm special.

    Because shes a typical political rabble-rouser (both sides have them). Do something "brave", then whine like a little bitch when people call her out.

    Every Canadian I've met here in the USA is always terrified of having to go back to Canada because they ultimately want to stay here. I guess they only enforce the whole "immigration" thing on White Canadians...

    I grew up in a small town in NJ. 2 years ago the local barber was killed by 2 illegal Mexican men for less than 100 dollars he had in his register. This guy was a staple of the community for more than 50 years and he was murdered in his shop by these 2 animals. This would bother me regardless of the heritage of the killers but the fact that they were here illegally and killed this man makes my blood boil even more so.

    I have a Mexican guy that has worked for me for the last 5 years. He is one of the nicest, most honest, hardworking men I know. He is here in America legally with a green card and is working on becoming a US citizen. It's a long process and it isn't easy but he is taking all the necessary steps required.

    Big deal. She graduated a shitty high school that is probably half filled with mutants. She'll be pregnant with her 3rd kid within 5 years and all her high school accolades won't mean dick. Maybe she'll land a mid level job in human resources or some bullshit like that. Start tweeting when you cure cancer or start a Fortune 500 company. Then the people who fund your entire life might not get so irritated.

    Gets provided an education paid for by the taxpayers. Gets a scholarship from a public university. Free healthcare subsidized by people who had insurance. Etc etc etc

    Tweets braggadociously about her accomplishment of valedictorian, her legs, her free scholarship. being an illegal getting all of this and to top it off throws up the Mexican flag to end the Tweet.

    How about some goddamn appreciation for the country that gave you the opportunity to do this instead of throwing you and your entire family back to the shithole country ya Tweet the flag of? You know, that shithole country your family fled yet you're apparently so goddamn proud of.
