Teacher Fired for Tweets about Illegals Wins Appeal to Get Job Back

(Liberty Headlines) An English teacher who was fired after tweeting that her Texas high school was full of students who are in the country illegally has won an appeal to get her job back.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath ruled Monday that Carter-Riverside High School teacher Georgia Clark’s tweet was protected by the First Amendment.

Clark can either receive back pay and employment benefits or the Fort Worth Independent School District can pay her a year’s salary.

District spokeswoman Barbara Griffith says Morath’s ruling was a technicality and the district is exploring its options..

Clark’s attorney didn’t respond for a comment.

The district board voted in June to fire Clark.

“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” she wrote in a since-deleted post. “Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them.”

“Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated,” she added.

In another post, she wrote “the Mexicans refuse to honor our flag.”

She told a district investigator that her tweet was meant only for President Donald Trump and that she didn’t realize her postings were public.
