Pro-Trump Student Tries To Get Classmate Expelled—And It Backfired In The Best Possible Way

We hold “Dreamers” to higher standards than most American citizens.

Regardless of how you feel about undocumented immigrants or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), it takes a special kind of hate to cheer for the deportation of people who came to the U.S. as children and have known no other country. In exchange for protected status, DACA participants, or “Dreamers,” voluntarily identify themselves as undocumented, promise to commit no crimes, and actively contribute to society via scholarship, military service or entrepreneurship.

With President Trump threatening to rescind the protected status of 800,000 young Americans, a lot of people are terrified — for good reason. A Transylvania University student, Taylor Ragg, targeted fellow student and “Dreamer” Paola Garcia on social media. Ragg, the kind of Trump supporter who probably sleeps in his Chinese-made Make America Great Again hat, publicly harassed Paola, saying he was going to “send her back.”

Ragg posted this screenshot (since deleted) in a Facebook group called “10th Crusade Enthusiasts”:

A wave of harassment and threats followed. Garcia said she received messages like, “I can’t wait to get your f*****g c**t a** gone,” and, “You and your n****r boyfriend need to leave.” One person sent a picture of himself filling out a Homeland Security tip sheet.

In response, Garcia gave a voice and a face to the real human toll of newly-emboldened white nationalists:

Ragg has deleted his Facebook account, probably a wise move since he became a poster child for racist bullying once the story made national news. University officials were not happy with the harassment or the negative attention, and they allegedly expelled Ragg. Ironically, the school can’t legally share details of their actions due to privacy concerns. 

This brief message from the school will have to do:

Will other bullies, racists, and white nationalists get the message?

This Harry Potter Birthday Party Made Pretty Much Every 'HP' Reference Possible

In a world where ‘Harry Potter’ reigns supreme, it’s not uncommon to have a Harry Potter-themed birthday party. In fact, most 2000s kids have attended at least one party where fake glasses and scars were required. However, not all Wizarding World parties are created equal. 

Imgurian  might take the cake (poor pun intended) for the most intricate birthday party that even J.K. Rowling herself would envy. “I’ve never had a surprise birthday party, let alone a Harry Potter themed party,” she wrote. “I’m stationed in Germany and leaving to go back to the US 5 days before my birthday. My friends decided to throw me a birthday party before I leave, and the party they threw was so amazing!” 

As any true ‘Harry Potter’ fans will see, “amazing” is actually an understatement. 

Guests began by running through platform nine and three-quarters.

“I cried. A lot. I can’t believe they did this all for me. They truly are my family away from home,” she wrote. 

We’d cry too… Check out the extravaganza. 

Then they hopped on the Hogwarts Express.

The whole set up was pretty impressive.

Wizarding world newspapers (and important HP quotes) were framed on the walls.

Not all the decorations were cutesy, though.

The Chamber of Secrets is no joke.

Guests came in costume.

That had to have taken some time. Do they even make dark mark flash tats?

All we have to say is: A+ attention to detail.

J.K. Rowling would be proud. 

Only question is: how will her friends top this next year?
