The boy's mother says that her son is an American citizen and, contrary to what the employee had told him, she also legally lives in the country. She chose to protect her identity for fear of retribution
While in suspension, an employee, described as an African-American man, reportedly told the US-born teenager that he could undergo deportation.
& # 39; He said to him: & # 39; Although you are a citizen, Trump is working on a law in which he can also deport you because of your mother's status, & said the boy's mother.
The woman says she lives legally in the US, but she didn't want to reveal her identity for fear of retribution.
According to the mother, the school employee also showed her son a coin with the acronym & # 39; ICE & # 39; and an eagle in flight.
& # 39; In fact, he was scared. You show him this ice cream, & said her teenage son's wife. & # 39; He doesn't know what that is. Everything he knows, he knows what's going on right now. & # 39;
The woman said she felt humiliated and embarrassed on behalf of her son.
The employee, described as a black man, would have shown the student this coin with the acronym & # 39; ICE & # 39; on it. The mother said the experience scared her son
When the family went to high school to confront officials about the incident, the mother said they were told the employee was trying to teach her son a lesson because he & # 39; yes & # 39; replied instead of & # 39; yes, sir & # 39 ;.
The independent school district of Lancaster has placed the employee pending an internal investigation with administrative leave.
& # 39; Lancaster ISD neither supports nor will we tolerate behavior that promotes distribution, & # 39; said the district in a statement. & # 39; Our district is proud to be an inclusive district that puts students first, regardless of their background.
