March 2020In June 2019, Georgia Clark was fired from her high school teaching position after taking to Twitter with a plea for President Donald Trump to remove illegal aliens from her school district. However, in November, she was given her job back with back pay.

The Texas Education Agency ruled Clark’s comments were protected by the First Amendment. Clark claimed her attempts at removing illegal immigrants had been stymied by the local government, so she reached out to the president, writing, “Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated.” Her Twitter account has since been deleted.
