The schools superintendent of DeKalb County, Ga., says he and his family have received death threats after a conservative news and opinion website published a story saying the district prohibits "pro-Trump immigration rhetoric."

The WorldNetDaily website piece claimed that schools chief R. Stephen Green fired three school employees for supporting President Donald Trump.

The district maintains that the employees voluntarily resigned, knowing that they were likely to be dismissed. The employees allegedly made derogatory statements about undocumented students and parents at a heavily Hispanic high school.
