Valedictorian reveals undocumented status in speech

McKinney Boyd high school valedictorian Larissa Martinez reveals she's undocumented and illegal immigrant in graduation speech.
A Texas high school valedictorian has revealed she is an illegal immigrant in her graduation speech.
Larissa Martinez told classmates at McKinney Boyd High School that she was one of the 11million undocumented citizens living in the United States after she fled her abusive and alcoholic father in Mexico.
The 18-year-old, who has been offered a full scholarship to Yale, said she decided against giving her classmates the 'traditional Hallmark version' of the speech and instead opted for the truth.

The teenager told the crowd of thousands: 'Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are people too'.
'We are here without documentation because the US immigration system is broken and forces many families to live in fear.'She also used the speech to slam Donald Trump's plans to build a wall based on 'hate and prejudice'. @The Incredible World
