Michigan State Student Govt. Calls on School to Hire Employee Dedicated to Illegal Immigrant Students
“This employee shall have a designated area in order to create a safe space for undocumented students to seek support”
Perhaps the school could pay for this position by raising the tuition of any student who agrees with this idea.

MSU student gov calls on admin to hire employee dedicated to illegal immigrant students
At Michigan State University (MSU), a student government bill aims to pressure university administration to hire an “undocumented student affairs” position.
Passed on cMarch 4, Bill 57-78 calls on the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU) to “Advocate for the Hiring of a Full-Time Employee for Undocumented Student Affairs.”
“This employee shall have a designated area in order to create a safe space for undocumented students to seek support,” states the bill.
ASMSU demands the new employee be selected by a committee comprised of “students and faculty most affected by the current lack of resources and representation for undocumented students.”
Included in the bill is a statement from DreaMSU, a pro-illegal immigrant student group, which cites MSU’s one-star ranking from uLEAD (University Leaders for Educational Access and Diversity) in relation to “financial and general support for undocumented students.” The University of Michigan, Oakland University, and Grand Valley State University all received a four star rating.
In a November 2019 rally at MSU’s administration building, DreaMSU and students demanded the university to create a position dedicated to illegal students and to provide resources to non-citizens.
Months later in January 2020, MSU published an “undocumented” student resources website, with a goal to “reduce apprehension.”
