“encouraging the grave injustice being perpetrated by the Trump Administration’s war on immigrants”
This is bad for the college, not to mention tasteless. Instead of taking advantage of what could present the college with opportunities, they’re throwing it away for partisanship. Not smart.

Trinity prez: Conway complicit in Trump’s ‘war on immigrants’
The President of Trinity College in Washington D.C. is heavily criticizing not only President Trump, but prominent alumna and donor Kellyanne Conway, as well.
According to Inside Higher Ed, President Patricia McGuire blasted Trump and Conway in a blog post on the college’s website concerning Lies and the Truths We Must Tell, accusing Conway of helping to facilitate the administration’s use of deliberately misleading statements
“We Americans study the history of tyranny and exclaim, ‘That’s terrible, but it would not happen here!’ as we congratulate ourselves on the robust state of our democracy,” McGuire states, but asserts that “the experience of the last few months now exposes this once-confident boast as terribly naive and perhaps even dangerous as a new administration indulges in a remarkable torrent of false and misleading statements as a basis for policy and action.”
“The gravest lie we are grappling with at the present moment is the Trump Administration’s cruel and unreasonable war on immigrants—mostly people who are black and brown, and Muslim,” she continues, remarking that Trump’s executive order on immigration “has spread fear and uncertainty among many people in the United States and worldwide.”
McGuire then directs her ire toward Trinity alumna Conway, a top aide in Trump campaign who has gone on to serve as a visible spokesperson for the administration.
“Presidential Counselor Kellyanne Conway, Trinity Class of 1989, has played a large role in facilitating the manipulation of facts and encouraging the grave injustice being perpetrated by the Trump Administration’s war on immigrants among many other issues,” McGuire claims. “Some people admire her staunch advocacy for her client’s positions, and others applaud the fact that she was the first woman to manage a successful presidential campaign. But in fact, as is true of many of President Trump’s statements, her advocacy on his behalf is often at variance with the truth.”
