NYU Alumni want NYU to become a ‘Sanctuary Campus’

From Campus Reform:

In a recent petition to NYU President, Andrew Hamilton, nearly 600 former students call for the school not only to refuse cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at an institutional level, but to “instruct security staff to refuse to participate in the actions of any agency that deals with immigration regulation.”

Taking it one step further, the alumni petition advises Hamilton to “prohibit campus security from inquiring about or recording any information regarding an individual’s immigration status” while denying ICE “physical access to any buildings or land owned by the university to the fullest extent possible under the law.”
