A substitute teacher in Los Angeles is coming under fire after allegedly telling her sixth-grade students that their parents would be deported after Donald Trump‘s election on Tuesday!
The Donald, of course, just announced a plan to immediately deport up to three million people — and as shameful as that may be, it’s even worse that a teacher would blatantly announce it to CHILDREN!!
An audio recording of the teacher at Bret Harte Middle School in south Los Angeles was captured on a student’s cell phone, and it is now under review by the Los Angeles Unified School District!!!
Disturbingly, the words captured on the tape — by an unnamed individual reported to be that substitute teacher — towards an 11-year-old girl in the classroom are incredibly disturbing.
The teacher, apparently a substitute physical education teacher, said:
“If you were born here, then your parents got to go. Then they will leave you behind, and you will be in foster care … I have your phone numbers, your address, your mama’s address, your daddy’s address. It’s all in the system, sweetie.”
WHAT?! The teacher almost seemed to gloat about Trump’s candidacy, challenging the kids about the fact that their parents might be deported!!
Absolutely ridiculous — and unacceptable!!!
The 11-year-old’s mother, Jennifer Reynaga, was equally shocked at the tape, telling the media:
“I would think the kids would do it, but I never thought a teacher would do it.”
That teacher is under investigation, and hopefully VERY appropriate action will be taken, but it doesn’t change the fact that this is entirely unacceptable.
And it sounds like this is also what we should probably start to expect in Trump’s America.
