Students at as many as 100 colleges and universities across the United States Wednesday held protests demanding their schools become “sanctuary campuses” that refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities carrying out Trump’s plan to deport millions of undocumented people. Speaking on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Trump vowed to immediately deport up to 3 million people. During his campaign, Trump also said he’d reverse President Obama’s executive orders, which include the program DACA—Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals—which has shielded 750,000 young people from deportation. This is María Maes of Columbia University.
María Muratalla Maes: “I’m here to demand that President Bollinger of Columbia University make my school, our school, a sanctuary campus and also protect the financial aid of undocumented students on this campus and their ability to work on campus.”
