During my time in academia, I rebuffed a lot of garbage petition solicitations, but I never saw anything as ridiculous as the statement George Washington University students enthusiastically supported this past week.
Campus Reform headed to GWU’s campus with a petition demanding President Obama address the illegal immigration crisis by initiating an “exchange program.” As in, deport one citizen, let in one undocumented immigrant.
Crazy, right? Not to this student body!
From Campus Reform:
“Please sign our petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen, in exchange for one undocumented immigrant,” read the petition. “Everyone must be allowed a shot at the ‘American Dream.’ Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another’s dreams come true.”
“It makes sense,” one student told Campus Reform. “Like, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of like hatred against undocumented immigrants and it’s not necessarily their fault.”
“Everybody deserves a shot and we shouldn’t rule anybody out,” said another.
After some consideration, a female student decided signing the petition was best in the name of social justice.
“If somebody were to sign up for this program and they were going to go through all the effort to become this one undocumented immigrant than I think that’s enough will power and enough desire, they should be able to come in,” she said.
Two-thirds of the people Campus Reform talked to signed on to this nonsense. Watch:
Stop the world, please. I want off.
