Prosser Teacher Suspended Over Facebook Posting
A Prosser elementary school teacher has been suspended over a posting on her personal Facebook page.
The teacher, from Keene-Riverview Elementary School, posted a message on her Facebook page that urged people to report undocumented immigrants and included phone numbers to call to report them. The post, apparently connected to Thursday's Day Without Immigrants activities, prompted a number of angry emails, phone calls and visits to the Prosser School District.
Here is an excerpt from the post that has since been blocked or taken down
"if you would like to report illegal aliens, please call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at 1-866-DHS-2ICE."
"If this offended you in anyway do me a favor and unfriend my American ass"
"This was going viral on my daughters Snap Chap...TRUMP all the way!"
The post also includes a meme that says "A Day Without Immigrants - Boycott - undocumented residents and citizens"
The teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.
