Campus Reform reports that the University of California, Berkeley has a system in place to protect students and faculty who are illegal immigrants.
Berkeley’s Undocumented Student Program (USP) helps provide illegal immigrants on campus with educational and legal assistance. The Los Angeles Times details that the UC system vowed to not cooperate with immigration enforcement officials and turn over private records without first receiving court orders.
The USP provides various resources, which includes a webpage, titled “What to do if ICE comes to your door,” a five-step plan that teaches illegal immigrants how to act when confronting an ICE agent.
The first four parts instruct the reader “DO NOT OPEN DOORS,” “REMAIN SILENT,” “DO NOT SIGN,” and “REPORT THE RAID!” and the last step says “FIGHT BACK!”
The “FIGHT BACK!” section has a fist image and says “get a trustworthy attorney & explore all options to fight your case. If detained, you may be able to get bail — don’t give up hope!”
The USP does not stop with its five-step plan.
The USP also has a “rapid response hotline” that illegal students and faculty can use when dealing with ICE.
Simply by dialing the Alameda County Immigration Legal and Education Partnership-sponsored hotline, Berkley faculty and the student body can warn illegal immigrants in advance about ICE activity on campus.
Carol Christ, the UC Berkeley Chancellor, put the school’s USP in the spotlight through a statement on June 26. The statement solidified the university’s mission to protect illegal immigrants.
Christ said, “Every member of the UC Berkeley community is a valuable contributor to the university, regardless of immigration status.”
The UC Berkeley Chancellor added, “We remain steadfast in welcoming, supporting, and building community with our undocumented students and staff.”
She then concluded by warning illegal immigrants on campus about the prospects of ICE going on university grounds to enforce immigration laws.
She warned, “According to media reports, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may conduct enforcement activities in the coming weeks. These media reports suggest that ICE is preparing to detain individuals who have missed a court date or have deportation orders.”
This is another case of a subversive leftist institution trying to facilitate the Left’s mass migration agenda.
After all, demographic trends do point to third world migrants being a voting bloc for leftist causes, so it makes sense for leftist institutions to put policies that encourage these kinds of migration patterns.
Europe is already showing what the consequences of mass migration look like, and America First patriots are taking note.
For that reason, BLP reports that immigration is the #1 issue going into the 2020 elections.
