“I personally think they should shoot them all at the border and call it good… it’ll save us hardworking AMERICANS billions of dollars on our taxes!! ;),” Oregon Department of Transportation employee, Lori McAllen, wrote in a vile Facebook post where she was calling for immigrants to be killed in order to help the country save tax money.
Her cruel post soon went viral, and hundreds of people called her employer and demanded that she gets fired. In the meanwhile, she broke down due to the pressure of the public and closed all of her social media accounts.
While she was immediately placed on leave, the ODOT announced that they are still investigating the issue and that Lori is suspended until further notice.
“An employee linked to an offensive Facebook post is on leave while we investigate. We take this matter very seriously and very personally,” the statement read. “The comment doesn’t reflect our agency values and is disturbing and hurtful. Thank you for your patience as we complete the investigation.”
The agency also thanked everyone who assisted them in the investigation. ”We’re aware of a post that has been rapidly circulating through social channels espousing views offensive & abhorrent to the values of our agency. There is an active investigation into the matter. Thank you to those who have shared your concerns and we take this matter seriously.”
According to the reports, Lori currently earns $2,883 monthly and has been employed for less than a year.
Her comment was based on news about 2,300 children being separated from adults earlier this month. In her comment, therefore, she was referring to killing the innocent kids.
Just last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared that there would be a “zero tolerance” policy for anyone who gets apprehended for entering the States illegally, regardless of whether they are seeking asylum or not.
All illegal immigrants would be criminally charged, leading to inevitable separation of parents and their children.
After the public was outraged by the new laws, President Trump backed down a bit by signing an executive order in which the part about the separation of children and parents was reversed.
“What we have done today is we are keeping families together,” Donald said. “I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated.”
