Texas teacher fired: Fort Worth school board votes to fire teacher Georgia Clark after Twitter rant to President Trump about “illegal” immigrant students

A Texas school district has fired a teacher who went on a Twitter rant about illegal immigrants. The Fort Worth Independent School District announced Wednesday they voted 8-0 to terminate the contract of Georgia Clark.

Clark posted a string of tweets to President Trump from a now-deleted Twitter account. Clark tried to expose the school district for being “loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” as she wrote in one tweet, CBS Dallas / Fort Worth reported.

“Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them,” Clark wrote to Mr. Trump. “Drug dealers are on our campus and nothing was done to them.”

Clark asked the president for a contact in Fort Worth “who should be actively investigating & removing illegals that are in the public school system.” The teacher admitted to the tweets, CBS Dallas Fort Worth reported.

Let me reiterate our commitment that every child in the District is welcome and is to be treated with dignity and respect.”

    Clark can appeal the decision to Texas Education Agency Commissioner within the next 15 days.
