“Over the last few months, it has been difficult to focus on school.
Just last week in class, a student joked, “Let’s round up all the illegals and deport them.”
For me, my safety and my family’s safety is not a joke.
I am tired of feeling isolated and upset because some of my classmates are unsympathetic to those who are affected. And when I see that my classmates have taken sides in the classroom, I wonder what kind of world we are trying to create when we allow kids to be taunted or when school safety and support becomes a political debate.” – Mayahuel Garcia, CFJ Youth Leader
