Students have also begun petitions calling for their universities to be “Sanctuary Campuses”, or campuses that limit or refuse cooperation with ICE. Although demands vary from campus to campus, they include providing resources for undocumented students, prohibiting campus security from inquiring about a student’s’ immigration status, offering financial aid for undocumented students and most importantly restricting the sharing of information between the university and ICE. Thousands of students have signed these kinds of petitions and many of them walked out yesterday in protest.

These university students join the thousands of high school students who have been walking out of their schools in protest of Trump’s election. Every day there are several of these high school walkouts, with students stopping traffic and taking the streets. Many of these high school students are not even old enough to vote, but will be affected by Trump’s hateful policies.
