Student Government Leader at Seattle U. Resigns Due to Stress Over Trump

Student Government Leader at Seattle U. Resigns Due to Stress Over Trump

“I had a nightmare that I was shot in a school shooting at SU.”

The student is an illegal immigrant and apparently, he’s having violent nightmares that cause him to wake up screaming.

NBC’s KING 5 reports:

Seattle University student leader lacking legal status resigns

The president of Seattle University’s student government, who was brought to the U.S. illegally as a child, announced his resignation on Monday. His decision to step down was made, in part, because of stress induced by the presidential election.

As the governing leader of the university’s student body, Carlos Rodriguez is required to attend weekly meetings with the university’s Board of Regents and the Board of Trustees, among other administrative bodies. As a senior public affairs major with two jobs—one with campus public safety and the other as an intern with the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s office—he has little time to himself. Lately, he’s had trouble sleeping. Violent dreams wake him up abruptly at night and keep him from falling back to sleep.

“I will wake up in the middle of the night just screaming for no reason,” Carlos Rodriguez told the Seattle University Spectator. “I had a nightmare that I was shot in a school shooting at SU.”

While the stress, anxiety, and paranoia associated with his status as an undocumented citizen has followed him closely for years, Rodriguez said things “became real” when President Donald Trump issued his first batch of executive orders. Namely, those which banned travel from seven Muslim-majority countries and initiated the process of constructing a wall along the border between Mexico and the U.S.

OK, I’m glad that you’re suffering. Leave. It’ll make us all feel better. Take your parents with you.

There’s no such status under the law as an’undocumented citizen.’ In the United States, you are a U.S. citizen, a lawful (or legal) permanent resident, an alien with status giving you legal authority to be in the U.S. for a specified period of time, or an alien with no authority to be in the U.S., which makes you an illegal alien subject to prosecution for violating U.S. immigration law and deported. If you were not born here, naturalized, or been granted a visa, you have no right to be here. If you have no more respect for our laws, we don’t want you here. GO HOME!

What is going ON with the males (I won’t say “men”) in this country? This can’t ALL be indoctrination by male-hating school teachers or feminist mothers.

So glad you’re having nightmares, tacosnowflake. Now you know how American citizens feel about YOU and other criminal-Illegal Aliens.
Leave—or be deported.

And hopefully the 14th Amendment will very soon be clarified to dump ALL Anchor Babies back where mama y papa came from. They are the responsibility of their and their parents’ home country—NOT OURS.
