School Launches Investigation Into Staffer Who Told Student Trump Will Deport Him For Violating Dress Code
A school staffer employed by the Lancaster Independent School District’s Obama 9th Grade Center is now being investigated after threatening a student with deportation after he violated the school’s dress code.
According to CBS News, a staff member told a 14-year-old that he would be deported for not wearing a belt to school.
The report stated that the student was serving an in-school suspension for the dress code violation when the staffer confronted him.
The staffer showed the student a coin with the logo of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on it and told him that he faced deportation if he didn’t shape up.
“He told him, ‘even though you are a citizen, Trump is working on a law where he can deport you, too, because of your mom’s status,’” explained the teen’s mother, who is in the country legally but is not an American citizen.
“Basically, he was afraid,” she said of her son’s reaction. “You show him this ICE thing. He doesn’t know what that is. All he knows, he knows what’s going on right now.”
“Lancaster ISD is aware of the comments made by a staff member to a student,” the district tells CBS 11. “We are working to gather all of the information so that we can conduct a thorough investigation.”
The staffer has been put on leave while the investigation is being conducted.
