There is a mad rush among progressive academics to institute "sanctuary campus" polices which will harbor illegal immigrants much in the same way as sanctuary cities. It's largely due to Trump's stunning election victory and the left is trying to make it happen before the President Elect is sworn in. Meanwhile, opponents of this policy are working on possible consequences for these actions. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is one of those people.

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum spoke at Cornell on Wednesday night and was repeatedly interrupted and heckled by a group of students. The event was sponsored by the Cornell Republicans who announced it on Facebook:
The Cornell University College Republicans is proud to announce that Rick Santorum, former Senator, former presidential candidate, author, and attorney will be speaking in Alice Statler Auditorium on the Cornell University Campus on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at 6:30 PM. Doors will open at 6:15 PM, and there will be a question and answer session following Mr. Santorum’s keynote speech. The event is free and open to the public.

This is a horrifying example of just how indoctrinated some students become by left wing sentiments on college campuses. When asked who is worse, Fidel Castro or Donald Trump, many of these students struggle to answer and some of them even defend Castro. Castro has a decades long record and Trump hasn't even been sworn in yet but that doesn't seem to be an issue. Campus Reform reported:
VIDEO: AU students prefer Castro over Trump Fidel Castro’s recent death evoked conflicting assessments of his legacy from world leaders, but college students are no more prepared than prime ministers to justify their support for the Cuban dictator.

On Monday, Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, plowed his car into a crowd of people. He exited the car and stabbed bystanders, injuring eleven people, before a cop shot and killed him. Authorities have not found a specific motive, but they have started an investigation into Artan's social media posts. It appears he considered American-born Anwar al-Awlaki a hero:
"America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that," Abdul Razak Ali Artan reportedly wrote on Facebook, using the Arabic term for the world's Muslim community.

This all started last week when some students at Hampshire College took down an American flag on campus and burned it to protest the election of Trump. The school then decided that it would no longer fly the American flag at all. The news apparently got around and some veterans decided they didn't like what was happening and organized a sizable protest with a sea of American flags. This is pretty huge. I've been covering campus politics here for four years and I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've seen veterans react to a college news story.
