A group of elementary school teachers in Middleton, Idaho, have found themselves in hot water after one set dressed up as President Trump's border wall and another donned cartoonishly stereotypical "Mexican" costumes, including sombreros, ponchos, and fake mustaches.
Another day, another racist costume. This is from Middletown School District in Idaho. Please call (208) 585-3027 to say
1) racism is unacceptable
2) they are creating and promoting a hostile learning environment to children
3) what is their plan to make it right? pic.twitter.com/DqUwvP3ROL

Asked about the costume in conversation with host Chris Cuomo, CNN's Don Lemon was briefly struck speechless. "I don't know what to say. It's a sign of the times," he finally answered.
Cuomo pressed Lemon to explain "why is the wall crossing a line." Watch him make his case below. Bonnie Kristian
