(Biz Pac Review) - A Florida teacher has been reassigned after she wrote a Facebook status supporting President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
Veronica Fleming was removed from her role as a computer lab teacher and assigned to administrative duties after she wrote that “glad about massive deportation” because it means there will be “less mouths to feed.”
The principal at Parkside Elementary School, where Fleming works and where the students are 96 percent minorities, learned about her writing after parents called the school to complain, according to NBC 2.
The matter was given to the deputy superintendent and human resources who decided to reassign her while they investigate.
The teacher wrote the message along with an article she shared from the Chicago Tribune about immigrants protesting the president and his immigration policies.
