A group of students in Newport Beach are being allowed to wear their “Dump Trump” shirts on-campus.
This after sisters Angelina and Alexcia Alvarez say they were asked to take the shirts off by the principal of Newport Harbor High School after pro-Trump teens on-campus harassed them.
“They repeatedly would state that it was for our own safety and that they didn’t want kids to harass us,” said Alexcia Alvarez.
But, on Friday, the Alvarez sisters plan to wear the shirts with the support of the administration.
For the girls, it’s about fairness and free speech.
They say students who have worn pro-Trump shirts all year weren’t told to remove them.
“I feel like they’re saying that we can wear the shirt makes me feel equal with them now. That I have the same privileges as they do. I didn’t feel that before,” said Angelina Alvarez.
