HILLSBORO, Ore. — A Liberty High School student filed a lawsuit against his school, contending his First Amendment rights were violated after an assistant principal made him cover up a political T-shirt he was wearing or face suspension.

The T-shirt says “Border Wall Construction Company” and featured President Trump’s quote, “The wall just got 10 feet taller.”

Senior Addison Barnes wore the shirt to his People and Politics class last January. He said he knew they would be discussing immigration that day.

The article goes on to state the following:

Barnes said his school tolerated other political views without issue.

“I had a teacher who had a pro-sanctuary city poster in her room which was up all year,” Barnes said, “yet as I wear a pro-border wall shirt I get silenced and suspended for wearing that.”

Barnes said after two students and a teacher complained about his shirt, an assistant principal pulled him out of the classroom.

According to the report, Barnes filed a lawsuit against Liberty High school for nominal damages.
