A civil rights groups said it's getting more calls than usual about racist comments aimed at Hispanic students from their peers across Wisconsin and the country. One of the incidents happened at Marquette University High School in Milwaukee.
One student, Jair Santiago, said he heard comments like "I'll visit you in Mexico."
The principal of MUHS said he was hurt and angry to hear his students had aimed such comments at their peers, but Santiago said he's heard those comments his whole life and has grown a thick skin for it. Still, he's upset to find his classmates making the hurtful statements.
"That's morally not right and I just think that's outrageous," Santiago said.
Santiago is first-generation American, whose parents are from Mexico. He said he has Trump-supporter friends who respect him and his differences, but he feels comments about Latino students have ramped up since Tuesday.
"I can say it too because he holds the highest power in the country," Santiago said.
"Immediately following the election, some students came forward to say that they heard offensive, inappropriate comments," Principal Jeff Monday said.
Monday gathered each class of students at MUHS Thursday.
