Clark says the bill was meant as political satire.

A former police officer and head of security a the University Schools Charter School in Greeley, Clark was elected last year partly because of his anti-illegal immigration stance.

The age of the student he showed the bill to is unclear. University Schools offers classes from kindergarten to high school.

Clark reportedly showed the bill to the girl Nov. 14, who later showed it to classmates.
