Internet Freaks Out When High School Valedictorian Reveals She’s Undocumented
Willa Frej Reporter, The Huffington Post
A high school valedictorian who tweeted seemingly innocuous photos of her graduation last week drew major backlash — and subsequent support — by mentioning that she is undocumented.
Mayte Lara Ibarra of Austin, Texas, said she graduated from Crockett High School with a 4.5 GPA and a full ride to the University of Texas.
“Oh and I’m undocumented,” she wrote, adding a Mexican flag emoji.
The tweet garnered more than 9,400 retweets and about 20,000 likes before she deactivated her account, according to NBC News.
