Hundreds walk out of Stanford classes, demand ‘sanctuary campus’ – SFGate

TRUTH BOMBS: Then they should be fired, failed and replaced just like any other working American who walk out on their job!

ARTICLE: More than 500 Stanford University students, faculty and staff members walked out of classrooms and ducked out of jobs Tuesday in a protest of the policies of Donald Trump, the latest in a wave of Bay Area and national demonstrations against the president-elect. Some of the Stanford dissidents, though, came with a concrete demand for the university’s administrators: investigating the possibility of the South Bay campus serving as a sanctuary against the sort of millions of deportations Trump has said he’ll seek as president. Hundreds of people — students, faculty, staff and other supporters — had as of Tuesday evening signed an open letter addressed to President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Provost John Etchemendy urging the two leaders to “immediately develop a protocol for making itself a sanctuary campus.” Sanctuary cities, like San Francisco, have formally adopted policies for local law enforcement limiting their cooperation with federal immigration authorities when it comes to deporting individuals just for being undocumented. Emphasizing Stanford’s support for the Dream Act, which would allow undocumented students to attend the school and apply for citizenship if passed by Congress, Lapin added that “this is a time to reaffirm our commitment to free expression, diversity and inclusion.” California passed its own version of the Dream Act in July 2011, granting undocumented students access to private scholarships to attend state schools. In an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” Sunday, Trump said he would deport or arrest two million to three million undocumented immigrants, though adding that he would prioritize those with criminal records.
