A Texas teacher lost her job after she took to Twitter to ask President Trump to remove the "illegal students from Mexico." Now after an appeal, she has her job back.
Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath ruled on Monday that the series of tweets Georgia Clark sent out were protected by the First Amendment. The English teacher at Carter-Riverside High School in Fort Worth can now get back to work.
Clark's Twitter account has since been deleted. She will be awarded back pay and employment benefits.
More on the story from Fox News:
The teacher was fired in June after seeking assistance from Trump in a barrage of tweets that she said she thought were private messages to the commander-in-chief, Clark later told a district investigator.
“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” one message sent on May 17 read. “Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them.”
In another tweet, Clark said her earlier attempts to “remove the illegals” were rebuffed by local and federal authorities in Fort Worth, where 34 percent of residents are Hispanic or Latino, census data shows.
All she is doing is asking for the laws of this country to be enforced by authorities. Unfortunately, the school district cowered to the outrage mob.

It's great to see that, ultimately, the school made the right decision and has now given her job back and compensated for the time she was unfairly suspended for.
