A veteran high school English teacher who asked President Trump in a tweet to help her remove the “illegal students from Mexico” that had “taken over” her Fort Worth, Texas, school, has been officially fired, reports CBS News.
“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” Georgia Clark wrote May 17 on her now-deleted Twitter account, @Rebecca1939.
“Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated,” she wrote in another tweet.
In another tweet, she 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.”
Clark said she didn’t mean for everyone to see her tweets because she believed they were a private communication channel 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.
The school board voted on Tuesday to fire Clark “immediately,” the board reported Tuesday evening on its Twitter feed.
Board approves motion by Rep Ashley Paz to terminate the continuing contract of Georgia Clark immediately. Board has adjourned.

According to The Washington Post, Clark has a long history of violations, including insulting her students’ ethnicity.
Even before the tweets came to light, the district was already investigating separate allegations of derogatory remarks by Clark in the classroom.
Last month, when one student asked to go to the bathroom, Clark told the student to “show me your papers that are saying you are legal,” a student told investigators in an account corroborated by another student.
In 2007, Clark kicked a student, the review said, though an investigation determined it was “without malice.” In 2013, she was disciplined for referring to a group of students as “little Mexico” and called another student “white bread.” Those allegations proved to be true, according to the review.
1. Georgia Clark is too cruel to be a teacher.
2. She’s also too dumb to be a teacher.
3. Sharing students’ personal info is a violation of fed law.
4. Given that this woman had already physically assaulted students, why was she still at @FortWorthISD? https://t.co/AiWG2pXlDI
