Isn’t it fascinating how often and quickly academia aligns itself with the agenda of the far left?

Campus Reform reports:

Profs demand Johns Hopkins end ICE partnership ‘immediately’

Professors at Johns Hopkins University are petitioning the school’s president to “end the partnership of Johns Hopkins University with ICE.”

An online letter addressed to President Ronald Daniels demands that he “immediately dissolve the currently existing partnership between the Johns Hopkins University and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement),” which is designed to improve ICE training and educational programs.

According to the university’s website, Johns Hopkins currently has at least two partnerships with ICE, including the “JHU-ICE Fellows Program” and the “JHU-ICE MS in Management Cohort Program.”

The letter alleges that ICE has “imposed a brutal policy of raids, deportations, and family separations of immigrants, some of whom are apprehended at the border, some of whom have lived peaceably here in our country for decades before being stripped of their rights and ripped from their families and communities.”

According to the petition,“ICE is now currently responsible for the fabrication and maintenance of facilities across the country,” which “have been described by scholars of the Holocaust as meeting the conditions considered definitive of concentration camps: indefinite detention without trial on the basis of identity.”

“We recognize that a range of views about the politics of immigration and border security are possible,” the petition concedes, saying, “We do not expect that you will publicly respond to each new policy or statement made by this administration.”

Does anyone ever send a petition back, requesting elucidation of some of the more superficially outrageous statements?

In this one,

“… have been described by scholars of the Holocaust as meeting the conditions considered definitive of concentration camps: indefinite detention without trial on the basis of identity.”

is very carefully worded to masquerade as something momentous, but actually says nothing at all. I can picture myself sitting in a nice quiet office and receiving something like this, and wondering how they think they can get away with substituting “the basis of identity” for the obvious fact, which would be “the basis of criminal history”. And the gratuitous and irrelevant inclusion of that magic word “Holocaust” requires justification. And that’s just for starters.

Or do they just cave to these things without a challenge, simply because it’s easy?

It is ironic that “Holocaust” is the “new Hitler,” a word now used only to stifle further discussion, since by definition, the arguments can no longer continue beyond this theoretical maxima.

The key to fighting this is to use the correct language with them. There are no undocumented workers, there are only illegal aliens who have criminally trespassed over the border.

The whole ICE thing will disappear when it becomes a “it is standard practice to separate children from parents who have committed a crime,” be it murder, arson, rape, or a border violation. Are you here to promote children being left in the care of parents who have been arrested for murder?

The left can only win by redefining the crime or the perpetrators.
