Texas high school teacher Georgia Clark, who worked at the Fort Worth Independent School District for over 20 years, was fired by the board after posting tweets asking President Trump to remove illegal immigrants from her school.
Eight board members voted unanimously to terminate her contract.
The tweets created controversy at her school which reportedly consists of a student body that is 1/3 Hispanic.
“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” she wrote in a since-deleted post. “Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them.”
“Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated,” she added.
In another, she presciently noted “Texas will not protect whistleblowers” and “the Mexicans refuse to honor our flag.”
“This board has a strong record of supporting students and their quest for success, college, career and community leadership,” Superintendent Kent Scribner said. “Fort Worth serves 86,000 students, and it is our goal that we treat each one with dignity and respect, and based on the information that we have, we think this is the most responsible recommendation at this time.”
The teacher was not present at the meeting according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and nobody spoke in support of her during the public commentary period.
A school district review indicates Clark was being investigated for separate remarks, but the board’s vote was a clear-cut response to these social media posts.
Clark allegedly thought her tweets were private. She has two weeks to appeal the decision and receive a due process hearing. Until then, she remains on leave with pay.
In the offending tweets, Clark notes that the school has seen a rise in drug activity as illegal aliens continue to enter.
Texas, in general, has seen their fair share of other problems due to illegals entering the state.
In May, reports surfaced that illegals were being flown to California as a means to relieve overcrowding in the Rio Grande Valley. Also last month, an illegal immigrant from Kenya was charged with smothering and killing a dozen women ranging in age from 76 to 94 in the state of Texas.
While it remains to be seen what other problems their investigation uncovered, the fact that this school board voted specifically on these tweets, siding with illegal immigrants over the teacher, is troubling.

We really do need to run off all those carpet baggers if they want to bring their trash ideas with them. Want to be a Texan then act like one!!!
Yea sure from their payments in cash they receive!! No too bright are you!?
Guess you mean the 1st amendment!
Yep I agree.
How do they determine those numbers? Do they know how many criminal workers they have in these states? Do they know how much they are paid and how much they spend versus how much they send back to families in Mexico? If they have all that information then it seems that immigration authorities should be able to fine the businesses and round up the criminals for trial and deportation.
She has the right to say what she wants why is it ok for all the Democrats to say what they want and get away with it, free speech and I’m with her 😡
The school board should all be fired for using hearsay information against this good teacher!
Freedom of speech, she has a right to have her opinion.
My tax dollars can pay for a womans abortion I didn't even sleep with, let alone even know. My tax dollars can pay for illegal immigrants food and housing that wasn't invited here. Why can't my tax dollars pay for my 86 year old mothers hip replacement she so badly needs? Why?
So you finally woke up , Rumpelstiltskin? ALL of the major cities in Texas are leftist run. Texans are under the belief that they are immune to liberalism, so was Colorado at on time, and the same for Washington and Oregon, but not they are all suffering the consequences for not preventing it! Texans talk a lot of bovine excrement, but that is all it is. When your supposed conservatives wholeheartedly support an illegal alien in their senate seat and supported him for POTUS, you cn't possibly support the Constitution and will easily be taken down by the left. It won't be long now before Texas becomes mainland commiefornia!
