One of the students who voted said that it is not the responsibility of students to tell administrators what to do:

USC’s undergraduate student government voted down on Tuesday a controversial resolution that called on administrators to provide shelter and financial support to Syrian refugees.

While most student senators signed a letter stating they support the concept of giving aid to Syrian refugees, they cited its political divisive nature as one main reason the could not fully support it. The resolution was defeated by a vote of nine against, three in favor, and one abstention.
