East Texas Librarian Suspended over Trump, Clinton Cutouts

An East Texas school librarian has been suspended after posting life-size cutouts of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and adding modified campaign comments that some patrons found offensive.

Trustees of the Longview Independent School District on Monday night suspended the Longview High School librarian for two days without pay.

The Longview News-Journal reports the employee recently displayed the cutouts of the presidential candidates at the library entrance.

A remark on a sign for Republican Trump said: "Sign in or you will be deported."

The comment displayed for Democrat Clinton was: "This is the only door to use. Only deplorables use the other door."

The district issued an apology last Thursday. Longview immigration attorney Jose Sanchez called the cutouts "offensive and definitely not appropriate."

Longview is 120 miles east of Dallas.
