Well this isn’t going to win him ant friends from the progressive student body, is it?

Chancellor on Syracuse being a ‘sanctuary campus’: We ‘simply cannot ignore federal laws’

Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud today “expressed support for undocumented students” but said the school “must comply with federal laws” in remarks addressing calls that SU become a so-called “sanctuary campus.”

Last month, hundreds of Syracuse students engaged in a walkout and march in support of the concept.

From The Daily Orange:

In an email to the campus community, Syverud said it is against university policy to share immigration status unless required by law and called on several pockets of the university to work together to protect community members from “physical harm, discrimination and intimidation.” He did not, however, explicitly say SU would be made a sanctuary campus. The chancellor said the university “simply cannot ignore federal laws.”

On Nov. 17, Syverud had SU sign a letter expressing support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a policy that allows undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children to at least temporarily avoid deportation.
