College Trump Supporter Tried To Get His 'Dreamer' Classmate Deported

In September 2017, a student at Kentucky's Transylvania University tried to get a 'Dreamer' classmate deported.

In September 2017, Taylor Ragg, a student at Kentucky's Transylvania University, attempted to rally fellow students to assist in his efforts to get Paola Garcia, a fellow classmate and 'Dreamer', deported from the United States.

Garcia's legal immigration status is derived from President Obama's DACA program according to the Herald-Leader.

A student at Transylvania University says the school refused to help her after she was targeted on Facebook by a fellow student because of her status under an Obama-era policy that allows the children of undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States for school and work. In a tearful six-minute video posted to YouTube on Sunday, Transy senior Paola Garcia said fellow student Taylor Ragg posted a picture of her Facebook profile, saying, “Everyone go report this illegal at my school bragging about breaking the law.” The profile shows Garcia under a picture of President Donald Trump, which says “Not My President.”

The student who harassed Garcia told the young woman:

Hope you enjoyed your visit. Back to them dirt floors of your homeland, stinky ass,” she said one commenter posted. Another posted a video of someone filling out a tip form for immigration authorities.

When Garcia reported Ragg for violating Transylvania University's anti-discrimination policy, the school claimed Ragg's conduct was not in violation. Ragg escalated his attacks against Garcia by granting an interview with a far-right periodical where he chose to denigrate her further. In the interview, Ragg referred to Garcia in a vile, hate-filled manner.

He did apparently speak with a website called The Narrative Times, which published excerpts of emails to him from Carey’s office, requesting a conversation with him about the impact of social media. The Narrative Times wrote a story sympathetic to Ragg with the headline: “ILLEGAL ALIEN Boast’s About Being Here ILLEGAL and Suddenly Get’s A REALITY CHECK!”

This is a terrible thing, but Trump supporters do terrible things routinely.

What a vile individual... I hope karma gets the best of him. For a "pro-life Christian," he does not seem keen on helping someone who has (likely) had to overcome more obstacles in life than he ever will.
