CHRIS– DONALD TRUMP, BUILD THAT WALL TODAY, I TALKED TO HAIDE REYES…WHO SAYS HER DAUGHTER WAS ONE OF THE PLAYERS TARGETED… HAIDE REYES SAYS WHEN HER DAUGHTER CAME HOME FROM HER SOCCER MATCH IN ELKHORN THURSDAY NIGHT…SHE WASN’T HER USUAL SELF. 1 SOTW1 46 She said I’m a little tired, but my heart hurts a lot, because they said bad things about us. 2 VO TRACK DONALD TRUMP…BUILD THAT WALL. SOMETHING REYES SAYS… 2 SOTW3 43 I saw her, she was crying, and she went to her room. 3 VO TRACK …WAS A A PAINFUL THING FOR A MOTHER TO SEE. 3 SOTW5 43 I was sad, and I was angry too. 4 VO TRACK CECILIA RAMIREZ…WHO WORKS WITH — AND IS A PART OF — BELOIT’S LATINO COMMUNITY…SAYS WHAT HAPPENED AT ELKHORN DISAPPOINTED HER. 4 SOTW7 44 I feel like this should not be happening. I mean, it’s 2016. 5 VO TRACK RAMIREZ SAYS BELOIT’S DIVERSITY MEANS LATINOS IN THE CITY TEND TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT AND UNDERSTANDING. BUT SHE SAYS…THE CHANTS REFLECT MISCONCEPTIONS SOME IN OTHER WISCONSIN CITIES…AND IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY…MAY HAVE ABOUT LATINOS. 5 SOTW9 44 What the students were doing was totally stupid, because these girls are citizens. They were born here, they are USA citizens. 6 VO TRACK AND SHE SAYS SHE HOPES THIS INCIDENT CAN TEACH ELKHORN STUDENTS — AND PEOPLE ALL ACROSS WISCONSIN — A LESSON — IN RESPECT. 6 SOTW11 46 I would like them to learn about diversity, to learn about civics, and to learn what’s going on for the real in their country and in their neighbor’s schools.
