A teacher in Texas has been suspended after allegedly sending tweets to President Donald Trump imploring him to do something about an overflow of illegal immigrants at her school, according to Yahoo Lifestyle.

The teacher's name is Georgia Clark, and she is employed at Carter-Riverside High School in Fort Worth. Using a now-deleted Twitter account, Clark requested assistance from the president to deal with "illegal students" and "drug dealers" that she said were taking over the school.

"Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico," Clark allegedly wrote on May 17, tagging Pres. Trump. "Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them. Drug dealers are on our campus and nothing was done to them when the drug dogs found the evidence."

The school district has placed Clark on administrative leave with pay as they investigate the matter. The district has not detailed what specific policy or regulation the teacher may have violated by sending the tweets, about illegal immigrants, none of which identified specific students.

"I do not know what to do. Anything you can do to remove the illegals from Fort Worth would be greatly appreciated," another tweet from Clark read. Some of the tweets included phone numbers to contact her.

"Mr. President, I asked for assistance in reporting illegal immigrants in the FWISD public school system and what I received was an alarming tweet from someone identifying himself as one of your assistants followed by a second tweet from the same person," Clark wrote in another post.

"Our mission is to prepare ALL students for success in college, career and community leadership," FWISD superintendent Kent Scribner said in a statement. "Let me reiterate our commitment that every child in the District is welcome and is to be treated with dignity and respect. As we conclude the school year this Friday, please know we take this promise very seriously and your child's safety and well-being are always our number-one priority. Thank you."
