About 1,000 high school students in San Francisco apparently skipped class Tuesday to protest Donald Trump being elected president.

CNN reporter Dan Simon noted that many in the group are "not even old enough to vote" but still ditched school to march toward city hall.

Simon spoke with one of the protest organizers, a high school senior, who called Trump's plan to deport millions of illegal immigrants "unfair."

"A lot of my family, a lot of my friends are undocumented and it's not fair," the protester named Victoria said. "It's really not fair that [Trump] said he would deport every Mexican, every Central American. And he said that basically Mexicans are drug dealers and that's not true. That's very not true. We are a working class. We struggle in this city."

Victoria was referring to President-elect Trump saying in in the summer of 2015 that "when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," adding, "They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
