I have little opinion about immigration, but as a matter of law, how is it legal for the school to expel him for reporting illegal activity to ICE? As far as I can tell, the school is public.


by Harry Shukman

Here's concrete proof that life comes at you fast: Cory Carnley, the guy who boasted about trying to get an undocumented classmate deported, appears to have been booted out of school.

Cory, until recently a senior at Gainesville High School, posted: "MFW I report an illegal who goes to my school to ICE," posing in a MAGA hat under a picture of Donald Trump.

Speaking to babe, David Shelnutt, Gainesville High Principal said: "The student who made the postings is no longer attending GHS."

I am not a lawyer... but... Sounds like grounds for a lawsuit to me.

Of course, the Principal will use the multitude of hateful things the teen wrote on social media as the real reason for the expulsion. I'd kick him out over those things as well.

Now, if a non-foul-mouthed kid made a good-faith report to ICE, I'd hope they'd sue and win big for getting expelled merely for working with Federal agents to help enforce immigration law.

That's not legal either. The kid has a First Amendment right to post whatever 'hate' he feels like on his extracurricular accounts so long as it's not threats of violence toward specific persons or the school.

While he should not have been expelled for reporting the illegal to ICE. Nor for his freedom of speech on his racist views. This child does need some serious help. And/or a good spanking to go with it. From my chair it's worth checking out.

Kids filled with hate are the ones that shoot their classmates in school. Was he a danger to himself and others? Who knows? Do you wait until after he takes a few people out or do you err on the side of "we've seen this before in the aftermath"? Maybe this is foresight instead of hind sight?

The Morse v. Frederick case stands only for the proposition that the First Amendment does not protect the school taking action in response to speech at a school event advocating participating in an unlawful activity.

Has this case been extended to schools taking action against students advocating, while away from school and not at a school event, enforcing the law?

This is not a rhetorical question. I do not know the answer, as I have not kept up with this area of case law.

"Cory had an active Reddit account that often posted the n-word, fantasized about torturing immigrants, and bemoaned how white women sleep with people of color. Yesterday he posted a photo of himself to a Donald Trump-supporting subreddit and bragged about how he reported one of his classmates to ICE."

I guarantee black students have posted worse with NO action taken by any school. This is not an opinion on the morality of such writing. I am just pointing out the crooked double standard.

Is it ok to ruin a life (the kid will not be a high school graduate, almost a necessity to rise above poverty and lower working class status) over being repulsed by another's ideas, when the other has taken no action on those ideas?

Even :censored: have rights and, while he certainly appears to be an :censored: I believe that his expulsion from the school was illegal and he should seek legal corrective actions. Hopefully he will end up somewhere that can teach him basic human decency, like not judging people by the color of their skin.

Public school administrators genuinely believe that they are a law unto themselves all too often. In Georgia we recently had a State Supreme Court ruling, that was unanimous btw, that told Henry county schools that state law applies both on campus (gasp) and even more radically to students. The County lost at EVERY level but was arrogant enough to argue that administrators and the board could make up their own rules on campus that ran in direct and unambiguous contradiction to state law.
