Professors, Students Demand College Start Fund For Illegal Immigrants
Cornell University students hosted a protest to demand the college provide funds for all illegal immigrant students.
The protest, organized by the Cornell Coalition for Inclusive Democracy, drew about 250 students and faculty members, reports Heat Street.
The protesters want the school to provide special funding for all immigrant students, even those not protected by DACA.
“Our endangered community members still lack explicit assurance that the institution that took them in will protect them,” Professor Russell Rickford said. “That’s shameful.”
The group also wants Cornell to provide on-campus housing and shelter for immigrant students who have been warned from traveling overseas. They want the college to fight for legislation that protects illegal immigrants.
They also called on the campus police to not release information about illegal immigrant students unless absolutely necessary.
“State explicitly that CUPD will join the Tompkins County Sheriff and Ithaca Police Department in declining to honor civil immigration detainer requests (which is not legally required!) from a federal agent unless accompanied by a judicial warrant,” the demand read.
“No ban. No wall. Sanctuary for all,” protesters chanted, a chorus led by Rickford.
