“Berkeley addressed students’ concerns in a tweet”
Trump should direct ICE to do campus visits on a regular basis just to drive these students nuts. Incidentally, they weren’t there to deport anyone.

Berkeley students panic after ICE vehicle spotted on campus
University of California, Berkeley students and community members went into a frenzy following reports of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) presence on campus.
Kicking off the controversy, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) vehicle was spotted on UC Berkeley’s campus on January 26, parked in a campus garage in close proximity to an academic building, according to The Daily Californian.
Shortly thereafter, UC Berkeley addressed students’ concerns in a tweet from the school’s official Twitter account.
“We have received reports of ICE on the Berkeley campus. Our understanding is that that they were invited to speak at the Global Entry Program about TSA checks and advice for international students,” the tweet announced, assuring students that “There is no raid.”
UC Berkeley later deleted the tweet without explanation, but students and community members reacted to the news quickly.
“Berkeley, an email was sent out at 11:27 am regarding ICE on campus. Since, folks have confirmed presence and asked folks to be cautionary,” tweeted Gia, a self-described senior and Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC) senator.
“Also remember to be careful with language and keep time stamps on warning posts. Keep statuses informed and updated,” Gia advised fellow students.
