Carter-Riverside HS has been taken over by them” & “I really do need a contact here in FW who should be actively investigating & removing illegals that are in the public school system” pic.twitter.com/BO2kQLF3pK

Georgia Clark, a veteran high school English teacher in Fort Worth, had an urgent request for President Trump: She needed help pulling undocumented immigrants from her school.
“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” Clark wrote May 17 on her now-deleted Twitter account, @Rebecca1939, in tweets that led to her termination.
“Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated,” she wrote in another tweet.
Clark was careful in her approach, she believed, and told the president she needed guarantees her identity would be protected when action was taken. “Texas will not protect whistle blowers. The Mexicans refuse to honor our flag,” she wrote.
Clark says she didn’t mean for everyone to see her thoughts and requests on immigration. She says she believed the tweets were private between her and the president.
“Ms. Clark stated she did not realize the tweets were public,” the Fort Worth Independent School District said in a review, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post. Clark acknowledged that the tweets were hers, the review said.
The very public messages have now embroiled her school district in scandal — and less than three weeks after she authored them, they got her fired pending a potential appeal. At a Tuesday meeting, eight school board members voted unanimously to terminate Clark’s contract after more than a dozen people spoke out against her during public comments.
No one spoke in her defense.
I have to say that this just breaks my heart.
I support our public school teachers 100%, but in every field, you have those who just make everybody else look bad.
Having said that fuck this bitch, and I hope she never gets another teaching job.
Though I imagine that is a couple of those charter school that would just love to have her.
