College Student Senator Facing Impeachment for Supporting Trump Immigration Policies

“a Change.org petition calling for Martinez’s impeachment has garnered over 230 signatures”

How is this for irony? This Loyola Marymount student appears to be a Latina and she is the “senator for diversity and inclusion.”

The College Fix reports:

Student senator faces impeachment petition for supporting Trump’s immigration policies

Left-leaning students at a private Los Angeles based university are calling for the impeachment of a newly elected student government senator after discovering she supports strict policies on immigration.

Stephanie Martinez was elected to the Loyola Marymount University student government as a “senator for diversity and inclusion” in early April after running an unopposed campaign, according to an independent student publication The Agency.

The Agency unearthed a number of tweets from Martinez that expressed support for President Donald Trump and hardline immigration policies such as the “safe third country” policy. She also said that a friend of hers worked for ICE in another tweet.

Kara Zupkus of Young America’s Foundation reported that a Change.org petition calling for Martinez’s impeachment has garnered over 230 signatures.

“These tweets used derogatory and dehumanizing language about immigrants, supported detention centers and also threatened to call ICE in her tweets- this is a serious offense as we have undocumented students on campus,” the petition states.

Martinez told YAF that she had no plans to resign and “to resign would only mean that I am giving up my identity and my ideals or that I don’t believe them enough to fight.”
