In a photo shared on Instagram earlier this week, a few dozen senior students from McDowell High School in Marion, North Carolina, posed in front of a wall made of cardboard boxes, blocking access to a common area in the school with the caption, “We built the wall first.” According to ABC affiliate WLOS, students were allowed into the school to perform a senior prank with a teacher supervising them, and despite complaints from Latinos students at McDowell and many social media users, the students will not be disciplined. WLOS has more about the story here.
Here is a re-post of the photo from Instagram by @studentsfortrump:

shame on these students, the administration and the teacher that was present. These students should be reprimanded and should apologize for their disrepectful intentional message, it wasn’t a prank since they are obviously trump supporters. the fact that it was on school grounds and a teacher was present makes the school culpable. so is the school supporting this hateful message? What a horrible message ment to hurt certain students and create division within their own school. all for an idiot and his stupid ideas- trump. grow up kids, the world is much bigger than NC and trump. and the world does not support your stance
Since when is a “senior prank” supposed to be something that supports a political candidate? It’s supposed to be something that represents the entire senior student body. This was done to try and minimize a part of the senior class population. Nice prank guys.
Can there be one thing done today that doesn’t offend somebody? It was a high school prank for Christ sakes.. Simple as that..
Trump won’t be representing any of these kids. It’s not a private school. He is part of the oligarchy. Idiot kids.
Since when is Trump building a wall racist?
I laugh at the word ‘hateful’ used here in these comments. Most of the people saying this would not use the same criteria to judge these students if it had been a Hillary supporting group……And using name calling like ‘stupid’ (referring to people) also allows one to know the true nature of such opposition.
As for it being hateful, stupid is a word that should be used for an ideology, otherwise it would be the same issue..HATE FOR PEOPLE…hate is a strong word for calling a group or individual……..it should be a thought process that is wise or stupid…not people……it is stupid for an ideal to be opposed that allows every illegal person coming in to our country to do so as it affects the ‘whole’…..and as there are so many who try to do it legally and work hard at such. The reason it could be a ‘hate’ idealology issue is if one is trying to beat the system and come in under illegal circumstances..that is disrespectful of the very laws of the nation they are becoming part of….If I were hispanic that would gall me!
BUILD THE WALL, TRUMP 2016!!!
There is no difference between this senior prank, and the one a few years ago where they hung nooses from the quad tree. Disgusting.
Folks, this was NEVER a racial insult. It was a PRANK!!! Look up the definition of prank
For those reading this that aren’t aware…like much of the rest of North Carolina, Marion, North Carolina is not a hot spot and/or bastion of intelligence and intellectual thinking.
What candidate Trump represents is bigotry, hatred and discrimination. He is not a person that should be lauded, honored or celebrated…because he is not an honorable person.
I assume–perhaps wrongly–that many of these students have been raised in Christian households. I must ask that age-old question: What would Jesus do? Would he think building a wall to keep people out is a good idea? Jesus, of course, was an immigrant. . . . .
Take a good look at these young people so that when they want to join your company you will know exactly what you are getting..
I would hire them all in a second. Great job
