By Fox News. A college professor in Georgia is drawing criticism for his online comments about illegal immigrants, including his contention that people in the U.S. illegally can be a drain on the nation’s economy.
“If you are going to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” Fang Zhou, an associate professor of history at Georgia Gwinnett College near Atlanta, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Zhou says he welcomes the criticism, including from those who say he should lose his job, according to the report.
“I am against political correctness,” Zhou, a legal immigrant from China, told the newspaper. “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.
“My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class,” he added.
While we celebrate the passage of the Dream Act, this @GeorgiaGwinnett professor uses hostile terms “ghetto thugs,” “libtards,” & spreads false narratives about immigrants.

Texas Teacher Fired for Asking Trump on Twitter to Remove Illegal-Alien Students
By National Review. A high-school teacher in Texas was fired this week after asking President Trump for his assistance in removing illegal-immigrant students from her school, in what she thought were private tweets.
Georgia Clark, who taught English at the Carter-Riverside High School for 20 years, was fired on Tuesday after eight members of the school board voted unanimously in favor of her termination. The vote came three weeks after Clark asked the president to deport students she believed to be in the country illegally.
“Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico,” Clark wrote May 17 on her now-deleted Twitter account, @Rebecca1939.
“Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated,” she wrote in another tweet.
A copy of the school board’s review of Clark’s conduct, obtained by the Washington Post, shows that she believed she was communicating privately with the president when she sent the public tweets.
