This is a tough one — do you feel sorry for Rachel Dolezal?
Or did she create her own issues with that almost unbelievable controversy two years ago when it came to light she was a white woman pretending to be black?
Now two years after her memorable and almost surreal scandal broke, Dolezal is nearly homeless, unable to find any kind of work, and living off food stamps.

Sara Beltran-Hernandez, a 26-year-old mother-of-two, was awaiting an emergency surgery for a brain tumor this week — but was instead forcibly moved by federal agents from the hospital to a detention center following Donald Trump's immigration ban.
A little background: Beltran-Hernandez was seeking asylum in the United States as a victim of domestic abuse in El Salvador back in November 2015 when she was picked up by immigration agents on her way to New York to visit her mother.
She's been detained in Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas ever since — until she was hospitalized in Fort Worth after a doctor discovered the brain tumor.
