California is nothing if not liberal. Liberal snowflakes that is. Which is why it should not shock you when they do completely ludicrous things. Like, elect a person like Representative Maxine Waters who’s certifiable. This latest event will have you once again shaking your head in disappointment. Officials at a community college in California held workshops on campus for students that are illegal immigrants!
The event was put together by a group called the Dreamers Club. The name is a clear reference to dreamers. A term used to describe children of immigrants who crossed the border illegally but were born in the United States. The club, as well as the event, drew the support of both educational administrators as well as several of the departments within the school. The school itself is called Cerritos College. The event was four hours long and took place at the beginning of this month of August 5th.
The so called purpose of the club was to help incoming freshman students adjust to the fall semester and campus life in the upcoming weeks as summer comes to a close. The college came out with the following statement concerning the event,
“We hope to continue adding workshops throughout the semester and have a DREAMERS Welcome done annually.”
One student said the following about the workshops,
“I’ve been getting a lot of help today. I’ve been helped applying for the AB application.”
Among other things, students like this were being helped with learning more information on immigration attorneys as well as learning more about various classes being held on campus. They had the support of the student body president Karen Patron who told Campus Reform she called the day Dreamers Welcome Day. She said,
“I am happy to see that our campus is supportive of our undocumented students. This event is beneficial for our current and incoming students; they were informed on the resources available for them on campus. At the same time, we were able to educate the parents about the processes and applications their students would have to complete. This event was not solely done by the Dreamers Club, it was a collaborative effort with our AB540 Taskforce, Financial Aid, Counseling, Adult Education, and the PUENTE Program on campus. We hope to continue adding workshops throughout the semester and have a DREAMERS Welcome done annually.”
Campus Reform reported the following,
“According to the school’s website, the AB 540 Taskforce—named for a 2001 state law allowing immigrants to receive in-state tuition if they attended high school in California—”is a working group of staff, faculty, and management who meet regularly to discuss the challenges of undocumented students and implement strategies to reach out to this population of students to increase awareness of resources and success in college. Jose Fierro, the president and superintendent of the college, voiced his support for the event in a tweet Saturday featuring a photo of event organizers setting up booths. “Getting ready to welcome our students,” he tweeted, affixing the hashtags “#dreamers @cerritoscollege #saturdaymorning #studentsuccess #highered #diversity.”
Patron and other student leaders have also been highly critical of President Trump’s immigration policies, such as taking a tougher stance on sanctuary cities and increasing deportation actions. In early March, then-president of the Dreamers Club Luis Guzman told the college paper that the new administration’s immigration policy “is very concerning from my perspective as an immigrant.” Patron also asserted that the prospect of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids make her feel unsafe on campus. “I do not feel safe,” she said, noting that “I could be here one day and the next day be sentenced for deportation.” Cerritos College did not immediately respond to Campus Reform’s request for comment.”
Talon Marks also reported the following about these events,
“President Patron said the Dreamers’ Club will make this a yearly thing. She noticed that they had more students that came to the event who have been at Cerritos for more than one semester who they themselves did not know about the resources and plans on doing more outreach. Patron went as far as to invite her mom to the event so she can have a better understanding of what the process is that Patron went through.
“In the previous year, we’ve done workshops sporadically. It’s never been a one-day thing. Usually because of time or [because] people can’t make it [due to] work on Saturdays or whatever it may be,” Patron said. A few parents showed up and asked the immigration lawyer, Claudia Perez questions. Some asked their children and about certain thing pertaining to friends and loved ones who are also undocumented. Not only parents but students as well have to know their rights. As the semester is ready to begin, the Dreamer Club has a number of events planned so that undocumented students can get an understanding of the resources that are available to them.”
While children who were born here should not be penalized for their parents illegally coming here glorifying their illegal status as well as illegal immigration is never acceptable. If we continue to glorify it we are simply encouraging it and this is unacceptable. How do you expect to keep illegal immigration down this way? Breaking the law has now been encouraged in liberal America and people seem to be fine overlooking this important but unacceptable fact. What this college did is a huge mistake because investing money into illegal immigration will not help them in any way shape or form. Instead, it will label them in a negative way. It will surely backfire.
Nobody is against immigration it is illegal immigration that people are opposed to. Share if you think we should not be glorifying crime!
