College Students Arrested During Protest To Make School A ‘Sanctuary Campus’
Ohio University students were arrested Wednesday night during a demonstration against President Donald Trump’s immigration halt.
Police arrested approximately 70 protesters who attended to demand that the college become a “sanctuary campus,” reports WCPO.
Police charged them with criminal trespass, according to Ohio University officials. Protesters refused to use a designated space to hold their protest, choosing instead to take it to Baker Center, officials said.
“At approximately 7:22 p.m. OUPD Chief Andrew Powers delivered his first warning that anyone refusing to leave would be arrested within the hour. They were given ample opportunity and time to relocate, and at 7:58 p.m.OUPD began arresting anyone who refused to leave,” the university’s statement read.
Protesters began their demonstration outside the Athens Courthouse before heading toward Baker Center. During their trek to the building, demonstrators blocked traffic.
“I’m a Muslim, so it deeply bothers me that there can be such an outright racist law or executive order that is passed,” Bobby Walker said. “It bothers me, of course, but more because I’m thinking of Muslim friends and comrades who cannot freely move.”
