In case you weren’t already convinced that the vast majority of universities and college campuses in America were nothing more than indoctrination centers for the progressive movement, what the University of California Berkeley is up to now should help you get on the right side of the fence.
The school’s Division of Equity & Inclusion is now putting together a catalog of resources aimed at helping illegal immigrants attending the school to be prepared for possible ICE sweeps to avoid being deported and detained for breaking U.S. immigration law.
Say, isn’t helping a criminal disobey the law aiding and abetting or something like that?
The “Berkeley Diversity” home page features several of the resources front-and-center, including a statement warning that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) intends to target Northern California for immigration “sweeps.”
information suggesting that our campus, in particular, could be targeted, we believe it is still important for all of us to be informed and prepared,” the university adds, providing links to more extensive lists of resources for students and “allies.”Trending:
The school offers six resources for the student community, including instructions on what to do if students are “approached by immigration enforcement agents,” as well as a list of services available to students and staff “in the event of [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] action.”
In a handout titled “Know Your Rights,” the school urges students to “prepare now” if they are worried about “facing” immigration officers.Advertisement - story continues below
“Your plan for responding to immigration enforcement should address questions such as: whether to make statements, whether to provide documents, and whether to provide access to your residence,” the guide explains.
The document goes on to list the rights that a student may have in different hypothetical encounters with ICE agents, asserting for instance that students questioned about their immigration status “have the right to remain silent,” should “stay calm and be polite,” and “do not have to sign anything.”
“If you can’t afford an immigration attorney, the university has resources you can access through the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center,” the document explains.
Another resource titled the “Immigration Sweeps Toolkit” provides illegal students with a three page guide to “ensure immigration enforcement officers have authority to enter the space before admitting them.”
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are more resources that help these students avoid the consequences of being in this country illegally. Clearly, Democrats are working insanely hard to try and bring as many of these students over to the party as possible.
It’s an excellent strategy, though morally bankrupt, and it’s no doubt going to pay off for progressives in a big way.
