A public high school teacher became frustrated after the state he works in refused to follow President Trump’s immigration ban and dumped the problem in his classroom. It’s easy for people to make a decision when they don’t have to deal with the outcome, but this bold educator isn’t taking it anymore. He just royally enraged illegal students and liberals in town with what he’s forcing on them now.
Teaching adolescent high school teens is not a job for the faint at heart, that’s challenging enough without adding entitled immigrants into the mix who bring a new array of issues. John Sullivan knows this first-hand, teaching social studies at Campbell High School in Hawaii. The liberal island state was among those in the nation who refused to follow our president’s orders and announced this week that they plan to sue Trump over it. The lawsuit was apparently the last straw for Sullivan who doesn’t want to — nor should have to — deal with all of the undocumented immigrants causing problems in his classroom.
Fed-up with his concerns being ignored on the issue and having to take a backseat to the state’s liberal agenda of catering to immigrants, Sullivan sent out an email about what he’s doing about it now. Forcing these kids to find a different classroom or perhaps even a new school, the blunt teach has refused to teach any undocumented immigrant, Hawaii News Now reported.
After a district-wide e-mail circulated to garner sympathy for illegal students in other states who were intentionally staying home to avoid deportation, Sullivan had the perfect response that pissed everyone off. “Their parents need to apply for immigration like anyone else,” Sullivan said in his controversial reply. “If they are here in the U.S. illegally, I won’t teach them.”
As is the case in any liberal situation, only the left is entitled to their opinion and if anyone disagrees, they’re punished for it. Sullivan soon heard from the school’s principal, Jon Henry Lee over his honest response. “I just reminded him again that we don’t discriminate against any individuals,” Lee told the news outlet, also adding that the teacher broke the school’s rule about using the department’s email system to share political opinions. Sullivan now potentially faces disciplinary action for it.
Sullivan defended his remarks by saying they were taken out of context, clarifying that all he meant was that if illegal students choose to stay home, he doesn’t have the opportunity to teach them.
However, he’s right to feel the way that it came across in the first place. He didn’t sign on to teach English as a second language or be a babysitter to difficult immigrants who don’t respect our country’s laws or anyone’s rules. Teachers don’t get paid enough to have to deal with everything that’s dumped on them by people who just think they’re supposed to take it, then criticize them if they don’t.
