A school district in Texas placed one of its teachers on administrative leave this week after officials said the instructor directed a series of anti-immigrant tweets to President Trump.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that Georgia Clark, a teacher in the Fort Worth Independent School District, was placed on paid administrative leave late Wednesday morning in response to numerous tweets from a Twitter account with the same display name that asked Trump to crack down on immigration.
Fort Worth schools placed Clark on leave after determining the account belonged to her and she wrote the posts.
The paper reported that one post listed Clark’s phone numbers and sought Trump’s help in removing “illegals from Fort Worth.”
In one post, the account stated: “@realDonaldTrump Mr. President, I asked for assistance in reporting illegal immigrants in the FWISD public school system and what I received was an alarming tweet from someone identifying himself as one of your assistants followed by a second tweet from the same person — cont.”
“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School district is loaded with illegal students from Mexico. Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them. Drug dealers are on our campus and nothing was done to them when the drug dogs found the evidence,” Clark, who teaches at the Carter-Riverside High School, continued in another tweet, according to the local paper.
The tweets have since been deleted, according to the Star-Telegram.
The paper reported that employees are responsible for content posted on their personal social media accounts.
A spokesperson for the school district told the paper after Clarke was placed on leave that the “district is reviewing its options,” after people reported the tweets to officials.
According to the newspaper, the majority of students enrolled in the Fort Worth school district are Hispanic.
The report comes as the Trump administration looks to ramp up efforts to crack down on immigration.
