Lawmakers in Indiana Pass Bill Banning Sanctuary Campuses
“The state is willing to withhold funding for colleges that fail to comply”
You don’t hear as much about sanctuary campuses now as you did several weeks ago. The movement is quickly dying as more states take measures like this.

Indiana Lawmakers Pass Bill Banning Sanctuary Campuses
Indiana lawmakers have passed a measure to ban colleges from adopting themselves as sanctuary campuses, according to WISH TV.
In retaliation of President Trump’s electoral victory in November, campuses across the state and throughout the nation began to ratify policies protecting undocumented immigrants.
“The way I understand what we’re passing here today it will be illegal for our institutions of higher learning to do anything today to protect those children if the federal government shows up one day and says the laws changed,” State Sen. Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) said.
Vice President Mike Pence’s home state already has a measure in place that bars state agencies from imposing sanctuary policies, but this law would specifically address colleges and universities.
The state is willing to withhold funding for colleges that fail to comply with the measure should Governor Eric Holcomb sign the bill into law this summer, according to FOX 59.
“If we can say that universities don’t have to follow it then we can say someone else doesn’t have to follow anything and then the law won’t mean anything,” state Sen. Michael Young said.

to the full extent allowed by law.
Senator Young has summed things up rather well: if a state or local government institutes a policy saying it’s all right to ignore any law because you just “don’t like it”, then every law becomes meaningless!
Colleges were intended for higher learning — with the Left in charge, they are expensive indoctrination camps.
