Teacher Fired For Tweeting Trump About Removing “Illegals” From School
Georgia Clark, a high school English teacher in Fort Worth, Texas, has been fired from her position after sending out tweets asking for Donald Trump to help her in “investigating and removing the illegals,” from her school district. According to reports from BuzzFeed News, she was fired on Tuesday after the board of the Fort Worth Independent School District unanimously voted to terminate her contract.
“We wish to ensure these students that all children and their parents and/or guardians, that all children are welcome in Fort Worth ISD,” school board President Jacinto Ramos Jr. commented.
According to Clark, she says that she thought the tweets she sent out last month were private. “Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” the former teacher wrote in one of the tweets. The account from which she sent out the hateful pleas has since been deleted.
“I do not know what to do,” Clark wrote in another tweet. “Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated,” she wrote before giving out two of her phone numbers along with her actual name.
According to reports from The New York Times, Clark plans on contesting the decision.
