Professors Arrested Near Harvard for Blocking Traffic in Pro-DACA Protest

Professors Arrested Near Harvard for Blocking Traffic in Pro-DACA Protest

“a planned act of civil disobedience”

Anyone who has ever driven through Harvard Square knows there is already enough traffic without professors blocking the street in a protest.

The College Fix reported:

More than thirty professors arrested during pro-DACA street protest

Nearly three dozen professors from Harvard and other universities were arrested yesterday during a street protest in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program.

In all, thirty-one professors were arrested “for blocking traffic…in protest of President Donald Trump’s decision to rescind an Obama-era program that gives legal protections to undocumented young people,” The Harvard Crimson reports.

The instructors were engaging in “a planned act of civil disobedience,” according to The Crimson, “forming a human chain and blocking traffic on [Massachusetts Avenue].” Local police forewarned the protesting faculty that they would be arrested if they did not move.

The professors face charges of “disturbing the peace,” and their bail was set at $40, according to a local police spokesman.

Professors.
They should all be fired.

Is there room at Gitmo?

“thirty-one professors were arrested”

Out of curiosity, I would like to know what they are professors of. Would they mostly conform to the common belief that the most obnoxious faculty will come from “Studies” programs? Or are there a lot of STEM types involved?

Never mind. The question really answers itself, doesn’t it?

If they’re convicted, does that void their tenure?
