A university fired an employee for defending President Trump’s immigration executive order to one of her co-workers when the university president sent an email calling the executive order “very troubling.”
After she defended Trump’s order to a co-worker, the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, terminated Kim Dearman, a university law enforcement dispatcher, for “threatening or abusive language” and “conduct unbecoming a University employee,” according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“Your last day on campus is March 13, 2017,” said Madeline S. Holzem, UW La Crosse’s Chief Human Resources Officer, in a letter sent to Ms. Dearman on the same day.
“Ms. Dearman told a co-worker that she supported President Trump’s position on immigration,” said attorney Lee J. Fehr, who is representing the former UW La Crosse employee, in a letter to the school’s board of rectors. “She felt Trump was doing the correct thing by keeping terrorists out of the United States. She felt that those immigrants should go back where they came from. She was terminated because of her political speech in support of President Trump.”
