A Group Of Students Win The Right To Wear 'DUMP TRUMP' Shirts To School After They Were Ordered To Take Them Off

A group of students at Newport Harbor High School in southern California wore 'Dump Trump' t-shirts to school on Friday, a week after administrators ordered them to take the shirts off.

The group of 10 mostly Hispanic students was told by the administration last week that it was for their own protection, since pro-Trump students at the school had issued threats.

In addition to the bullying, the students say racist messages like 'wetbacks' and 'go back to Mexico' have been graffitied with chalk throughout the campus recently.

After they came to school last Friday wearing the shirts, they were called one by one into the principal's office and asked to take them off.


They felt this was unfair since the other students at the school had been allowed to wear 'Make America Great Again' gear all year without consequence.

'The principal told us how he was afraid of what was going to happen to us, but we told him he couldn't silence us like that,' student Anthony Agama told NBC. 'We told him we have a right to wear them.'

The students protested the decision, and on Friday, were allowed to wear their shirts to school again.

'I feel like they’re saying that we can wear the shirt makes me feel equal with them now. That I have the same privileges as they do. I didn’t feel that before,' Angelina Alvarez told CBS Los Angeles.

While the students have since won the right to wear their 'Dump Trump' shirts again, the administration is standing behind their earlier decision ordering the students to take the shirts off.

'Regardless of what side you’re on, we do allow students to wear their political attire as long as safety and security of our students is not comprised and that we maintain focus on learning,' Newport-Mesa Unified School District spokesman Annette Franco said.
