Yale Law Prof Wants People to ‘Hide’ Immigrants from ICE
“It’s called civil disobedience”
Isn’t it fascinating how none of this anti-ICE activism happened for eight years under Obama?

Yale law prof encourages people to ‘hide immigrants from ICE’
A Yale University law professor encouraged people to “hide” illegal immigrants from ICE, but says he has “no qualms” about revealing the home addresses of ICE employees.
Gregg Gonsalves, an assistant professor of Epidemiology and associate professor of law at Yale, has written numerous social media posts blasting the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) and supporting illegal immigration.
“[ICE is] raiding restaurants, setting up roadblocks in New England, getting on buses to check for foreigners,” Gonsalves tweeted in late June. “We’ve unleashed something evil in the United States. Let the pundits debate who’s winning the day as immigrants get rounded up. The rest of us have to fight.”
“[W]e hide immigrants from ICE if we have to,” Gonsalves wrote in a subsequent tweet, prompting Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Lawrence Jones to ask whether he intended to suggest aiding and abetting criminals.
“It’s called civil disobedience,” he argued in a follow-up tweet after blocking Jones’ Twitter account.
“Aiding and abetting is about facilitating crime,” he added, asserting that “here the moral crime is against immigrant children and families, women, and workers.”

BOR-ing. They really have to think up some new lies.
These aren’t “foreigners”, these aren’t “immigrants”, these are “criminals”.
Aiding and abetting criminals and criminal activity is not quite what Thoreau wrote about nearly two centuries ago.
Yes, it was. Refusing to pay his taxes because he disapproved of the war they were funding was a crime, no different from ANSWER types doing the same now. And fugitive slaves, as well as those who aided them, were also criminals.
Isn’t helping criminals avoid capture itself a crime? “Accessory after the fact” is the phrase I’ve heard bandied about.
Yes, it is a crime. So was aiding escaped slaves. He’s explicitly advocating breaking the law, which is his right to do. Those who follow his advice risk prosecution if caught, but sympathetic juries might refuse to convict them, just as northern juries did to those who aided fugitives back then, and as southern juries more recently did to those who murdered black people.
We should encourage Yale to hide their law professors.
