A Georgia professor is under fire for criticizing illegal immigration, and faces losing his job over simply expressing his first amendment rights.
Georgia Gwinnett College Professor Fang Zhou openly criticized illegal immigration, stating that he speaks truthfully to his students and doesn’t sugar coat anything.
Zhou, an immigrant from China, is facing students who demand to have him fired for his opposition to immigrants who come to America illegally.
“I am against political correctness. I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants,” the professor stated, “My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class.”
“If you are going to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” Zhou told the Atlantic Journal-Constitution.
Now, some Georgians are calling for his termination. Bee Nguyen, the State Representative for Georgia House District 89, posted screenshots from Zhou’s social media pages on her Twitter account. “Are these the values supported by Georgia Gwinnett College?” Nguyen wrote in the tweet.
“Those myths have been disputed many times,” Nguyen told the press. “I have concerns about him teaching those things in a classroom.”
While we celebrate the passage of the Dream Act, this @GeorgiaGwinnett professor uses hostile terms “ghetto thugs,” “libtards,” & spreads false narratives about immigrants.

Professor Zhou reiterated that Americans have the freedom of speech, covered by our First Amendment, and that he does not force anyone to share his opinion.
If the college chooses to terminate the professor for this, I hope he sues them for every penny they have. He is an immigrant who did things the right way, and yet he is being punished for speaking out against those who do it the wrong way.
People can post on social media all day long about killing the president, but the moment someone with some sense states an opinion, they are a “danger.”
