Because of course…
If there’s one American college everyone knew would get behind the sanctuary campus movement, it was Oberlin.
The Chronicle reports:
Oberlin College leader backs sanctuary campus campaign
In a letter of support for making Oberlin College a sanctuary campus, President Marvin Krislov outlined the way it would protect students should President-elect Donald Trump repeal the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals program.
DACA, established by an executive action under President Barack Obama, allows people brought to the United State as children with undocumented families “deferred action” for two years with the possibility of renewal.
Last month, six faculty and staff members from Oberlin College submitted a petition to Krislov with nearly 3,000 signatures asking him make the college a sanctuary campus in response to the Trump’s promise to deport millions of undocumented people.
On Thursday, Krislov responded with his support for the staff’s request.
He outlined several “practical measures” the college will take to protect those who might be at risk.
This includes admitting all qualified students regardless of immigration status; refraining from providing information about immigration status to government agents or allowing government agents to gain access to the campus, unless required to do so by a lawfully authorized directive; and identifying resources to promote the success of all students, including undocumented students.
