Bates College students petition administration to become a sanctuary college; protect Somalis of Lewiston too

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 8, 2016

All over the country (we are told) college administrators are setting up sanctuaries for illegal aliens (and refugees!) to protect them from Donald Trump and his “deplorable” voters.

The Annual Puddle Jump is a tradition at Bates College.

The Annual Puddle Jump is a tradition at Bates College.

Here is what the students are saying at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.

BTW, Bates is the alma mater of House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte who is responsible for most immigration issues that come  before the House.  Can’t he get a little pressure going among other alums to stop sending donations if sanctuary is approved.

Or better still, how about seeing what federal money the college is getting and cut it off!

From Bates College students:

We, the concerned students of the Bates Community, move that Bates College follow the lead of over 200 colleges and universities across the nation in seeking official status as a sanctuary campus for undocumented immigrants living at Bates and in Lewiston. This is an imperative step as we prepare to protect the members of our community directly threatened by President-Elect Donald Trump and his administration.

Within the first 100 days in office, President-Elect Donald Trump plans to block funding for sanctuary cities and states and overturn Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA specifically grants protection from deportation to undocumented immigrants who came to the United States under the age of 16 and before June of 2007. With the repeal of DACA, over 13,000 U.S. college students will be in danger of deportation. It is the duty of college and university administrations across the country to act in defense of students most vulnerable to President-Elect Donald Trump’s proposed immigration policies.


Here is an idea for Mom and Dad! Instead of spending $50,000 a year for tuition at Bates, if you have so much extra money, maybe take some refugees/DACA kids in to your homes. Why waste it on Bates! Total cost with room and board: $66,000!

Sanctuary spaces around the country—including cities, states, and college campuses—serve to protect undocumented immigrants by refusing to comply with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Colleges and Universities hold unique power in that ICE officials cannot step foot on campus property without authorization (policy number 10029.2). Not only will sanctuary status serve to protect DACA-mented, undocumented students, faculty, and staff, but it will also serve as a gesture of protection and kindness to Lewiston’s large Somali refugee population (one of the largest populations in Maine with approximately 7,000 Somali refugees)—a group of people whom Donald Trump has directly targeted in his campaign, blaming them for Maine’s increasing crime rates.

I guess the kids haven’t heard about Ohio State? Trump will be there today to meet with student victims.

Continue reading here to see what else the little darlings want.

As a country we could do with far fewer colleges (like Bates) busy brainwashing kids.  Let’s focus on creating trade schools that might train students for something useful.

    More recently known as the Annual Know-Nothing Pro-Terrorism Fleece the American Taxpayer Puddle Jump tradition at Bates College.


  2. Reblogged this on islamnewworldorder and commented:
    Everywhere people are scared out of their minds of President-elect, Donald Trump.
    People will be deported, there’s no doubt of that, and it’s damn time. Too bad they don’t start by deporting these 4 dumbass white boys jumping into a pool of ice cold water–WTF? Are the two jumping holding hands too?
    One has to wonder, is this the bravest thing these two boys have ever done?
    If so, that is very sad, and a sad statement on too many of today’s youth.


  3. Handing out money to non-us citizens is fraud. Interfering with the deportation process is obstruction of justice. Why aren’t these politicians who plot to do these thing being dragged off in handcuffs?


  4. Inform their parents that their children are exposing them to HUUUUUUUGE financial liability.
    If you provide “sanctuary” then YOU assume PERSONAL FINANCIAL LIABILITY.
    “our” politicians take oaths to uphold the LAW and the Constitution. When they REFUSE to, when they openly DEFY and circumvent the LAW, they FORFEIT their “Governmental Immunity”. Every Politician who goes on record as supporting “sanctuary cities” & ILLEGAL INVADERS should be held financially responsible for PAYING REPARATIONS for the crimes done by the ILLEGALS.
    ALL immigrants must have SPONSORS who will be accountable for the actions of the immigrant. Supporters of ILLEGALS are ASSUMING SPONSORSHIP of all Illegals and therefore are FINANCIALLY responsible for CRIMES and LIFE SUPPORT of ALL illegals. NO illegals should be on TAXPAYER DOLE, they should be living on the wealth of their SPONSORS and in THEIR HOUSES.
    Start CIVIL FORFEITURE on the assets of Politicians that cover for ILLEGAL INVADERS. Since their “Government DUTIES consist of securing the Border” and they not only failed but REFUSE to secure the border they are no longer protected by “immunity”

    How can I post or email you a similar petition that has been circulated by a delusional liberal professor, signed by the local imam, at our local college. I do not want a camp full of rampaging illegals about a mile from my home. This crazy woman doesn’t realize that she is setting up every woman at the college to be raped or murdered. To illustrate this woman’s idiocy, she includes sanctuary for the LGBT community when the “deportation gangs” come to get them!! She’s a philosophy professor who exhibits faulty logic. Since when are LGBT people being deported?? Margaret ________________________________________

  8. Bates may not realize it yet, but their students may need a sanctuary from death and destruction from the very students they seek to protect from expulsion!

    Or take the money and send to the victims of the terrorist attacks taking place across this nation.

    I want to thank you for your continued efforts in this area. It amazes me that so many people can’t see the problems this has brought to our nation and it is staring them in their faces.


  10. It was control of the State education system that allowed all the communist regimes to control and murder millions of citizens. Americans are ignorant if they think it can’t happen here by the future generations being turned out by today’s colleges.

    Yea, these high priced schools like Bates and Hampshire college are nothing more than brainwashing institutes. When I was growing up I learned to work with my hands first learning a trade and I went to school nights on my own dime. I appreciate what I have and how I got it. I don’t think most of these young adults know the value of earning something on their own.

  12. Recalling the hundreds of Muslim chapters on American colleges and their militant, insane protests against Israeli students, in addition to the ultra-liberal professors who support their efforts, is their influence at work in the numerous colleges now petitioning to become Sanctuary Colleges? With Syrian and Somalian Muslims being ushered into our country in huge numbers, (much like their invasion of Europe), is the intent to make them impossible to deal with in denying Trump any freedom to operate? When will the dam of tolerance break from the right and create the race war that Bill Ayers/Barack Obama dreamed of?
    And will the much anticipated economic collapse occurs early next year, (as promised by numerous “respected” economists”) accelerate the process by leaps and bounds? We are looking at the advance guard of the invading force with the thousands of Muslims being imported daily, and are the 4-5 million visa overstayers, mostly Muslims, who are already here become the “founding fathers” of Islam/Sharia in America?
