Texas students chant ‘build a wall’ at border town opponents

A Texas school apologized after students chanted “Build a Wall” during a volleyball match.

SNYDER, Texas (AP) — A school official in a small North Texas town has apologized to administrators of a Texas-Mexico border school district after his students chanted “build a wall” during a volleyball match between teams from the two districts.

Archer City school Superintendent C.D. Knobloch said he apologized to Fort Hancock district administrators. He said Archer City students also held Donald Trump campaign signs at the Friday regional tournament match in the West Texas town of Snyder.

Knobloch said heated emotions after the election probably were a factor and said “the whole community is torn up about it.”

Fort Hancock school Superintendent Jose Franco says he accepted the apology and told his volleyball players that there “are a lot more good people than ignorant people out there.”
