Two fences on either side of John Carroll University’s campus representing a “mock border wall” are causing controversy on campus and online.
The fences were put up on Monday by a social justice student group as part of a senior project, meant to showcase stories and statistics about the country’s immigration policies and practices.
One is by the library, the other 36-foot-wide wire fence stands in front of the student center. Both were approved by the school ahead of time.
But a day after they went up, students said they were vandalized by Donald Trump supporters, who put up their own signs by the fences and then chalked the campus in support of the Republican presidential candidate.
