A teacher at a California magnet school has been placed on leave after allegedly telling her students she wanted to "bring back slavery," among other racially-charged remarks.

Students at the Space and Aeronautics Gateway to Exploration Magnet Academy in Palmdale, California, allege that the unnamed educator is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump and displayed Trump memorabilia in her classroom, the Los Angeles Times reports.

According to students, the teacher frequently gave them assignments pertaining to Trump and immigration, and praised the president's proposed plan for a border wall between the US and Mexico. The students also allege that the teacher said she wanted to "bring back slavery."

The school district is comprised of primarily Latino students (70%), the Los Angeles Times reports. Counselors are being made available to students.

According to the Los Angeles Times, this is the second time the teacher in question has been placed on leave for her remarks.
