This whole story is essentially a microcosm of why Trump is so popular among large segments of the American population. Let’s look more closely at what was actually stated in this piece:

I was working with students and their families at my high school, helping to lead workshops for children and families dealing with paperwork for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program…

She’s assisting others who have entered the country illegally and (apparently) getting paid to do it. Seems like a welfare state scam to me…

I persevered and overcame, eventually going on to the University of Texas, preparing for a career as a high school teacher. It was at the university that my great moment came — the chance to participate in the University Leadership Initiative and the struggle for immigrant rights.

So she went to a state school — probably under a scholarship, despite her nonresident status — and learned to combine her Open Borders activism with a job working in public education. Again, seems like a welfare state scam to me…

Areli Zarate teaches Spanish and facilitates AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) in Austin, Texas.

So, despite English being the historical, day-to-day language used in the US, she instead teaches Spanish, facilitating an ongoing failure to assimilate.

And the kicker comes from the AVID wikipage: AVID — yet another affirmative action program for ‘at risk’ and ‘traditionally underrepresented’ populations, and cash cow for groups like the NEA and AFT— earned this bon mot:

What Works Clearinghouse, under the Institute of Educational Sciences, reviewed 66 peer-reviewed studies and found that AVID shows no evidence of impact on student reading comprehension.

After working in the TX public schools and seeing this nonsense firsthand, I completely understand why many, many Americans are sick of all this pandering to the illegals.
