Forest Grove students protest 'Build A Wall' banner; Hillsboro joins in

Dual protests occurred at Forest Grove High and Hillsboro High Thursday morning, sparked by a "Build A Wall" banner that appeared inside FGHS Wednesday afternoon, a reference to a wall presidential candidate Donald Trump has said he wants to build along the Mexican-Texas border to prevent illegal immigration. The incident was one of many student activists pointed to as indications of racial bias on their campuses. Also joining in were Glencoe and Liberty high schools, which staged rallies of their own.
