SALT LAKE CITY, Utah –  School districts in Utah say they are having to fend off a new wave of bullying following the end of the election.

According to KSL, a parent told administrators at Farnsworth Elementary School that they saw two kindergartners telling a Hispanic classmate that he would be going back to Mexico after Trump’s victory.

Angelica and Aylin Gomez are American citizens whose parents immigrated to the United States. However, they have been dealing with bullying since the election results were announced.

“You wetbacks need to go back to Mexico,” Aylin told KSTU, regarding some of the comments she has heard from classmates.

“There was a lot of rude and negative comments toward Latinos,” Angelica Gomez said.

However, the issue isn’t limited to Utah.

In a video that is spreading on social media, students at a Pennsylvania high school are seen carrying a Trump sign and yelling “white power.”

District leaders in York say they are investigating the incidents.
