A group of Trump-loving Idaho teachers mocked Mexicans and dressed up as President Donald Trump's proposed wall along the U.S. -Mexico border during a Halloween party this week.

Photos of 14 employees of Middleton Heights Elementary, posing in front of a cardboard wall that said, "Make America Great Again", went viral after the images were posted on the school district's Facebook page.

The Idaho DACA Students Facebook group denounced the Halloween costumes in a Friday morning Facebook post, shared via Elizabeth Almanza, a member of immigrant advocacy group PODER (Protecting our Dreams and Empowering Resilience) of Idaho.

Josh Middleton, superintendent for the school district, on Friday apologized to school families and described the teachers' costumes as "insensitive and inappropriate". "The messages conveyed are the antithesis of the beliefs and values of the Idaho Education Association and its dedicated members throughout the state". No, I don't. was there poor judgment involved?

In a statement provided to the Statesman, Middleton said he was contacted Thursday evening by a parent who was concerned about the photos.

Middleton also indicated he did not believe there was any malicious intent. Supt. Middleton had also previously offered an apology on the district's Facebook page, but that video is no longer available as the district's entire page has been deleted.

"We have received calls from concerned citizens, wondering what are their rights and what their protections are", said Benjamin Earwicker, administrator for the Idaho Human Rights Commission. We have a responsibility to teach all students. Imagine how some of the students felt when they walked into their classrooms on Halloween and saw their teachers (people they look up to) dressed like this? "This is heartbreaking. Students deserve better".

According to U.S. Census Bureau data, almost 10% of Middleton's population are Hispanic, and the school district offers a migrant education program. "Again, we are so much better than this".

News Radio 1310 has reached out to the school district for comment.
