(Scroll down for video) A student claims that he was expelled from college after calling on others to get an illegal student deported.

Paola Garcia of Kentucky, said that her classmate, Taylor Ragg, who is a Trump supporter, tried to get her deported from the United States.

Garcia said that Ragg posted her information to a Facebook group called 10 Crusade Enthusiasts.

He added the message: “Everyone go report this illegal at my school bragging about breaking the law.”

Garcia, who is a DACA student, receives messages from people who threatened to report her in order to get her deported.

Furthermore, Garcia said that she received photos of someone who was filling out a tip form for ICE to have her deported.

Garcia turned to school officials at Transylvania University for help, claiming she was being harassed and discriminated against due to the actions of Ragg.

However, according to Garcia, she was told that Ragg’s actions “did not violate school policies because he only made a recommendation to his readers about how to respond to her undocumented status.”

Garcia then turned to YouTube, where she posted an emotional video, asking people for help. She asked viewers to call her school and demand that they expel Raggs so that she does not have to see his face everyday.

After her video went viral, Transylvania University released a statement, saying that Ragg was no longer at the school.

Michele Sparks, a spokesperson for the university, said that Ragg, who is a senior, left campus following a grievance process performed by school administrators.

Citing federal privacy laws, Sparks said she could not disclose whether Ragg was expelled or left voluntarily.

Garcia said that she was brought to the U.S. by her parents when she was two years old. Her family never went through the process of getting citizenship.

She now fears that she and her family will be deported.
