Texas district votes to fire teacher who tried to report illegal students to Trump on Twitter

The Fort Worth Independent School District unanimously voted 8-0 to terminate the employment of Georgia Clark at a special meeting Tuesday. She still has an opportunity to appeal the vote with the state, NBC Dallas-Fort worth reports.

Clark,an English teacher at Carter-Riverside High School, tweeted that the school she worked at had been “taken over” by “illegal students from Mexico,” that Trump was elected “on the promise that a wall would be built to protect our borders” and tweeted multiple statements referencing “illegals.”

The tweets started gaining attention on social media last week, and Clark’s account was deleted May 29. She was placed on administrative leave after the school district became aware of the tweets.
