CSU: “Our police departments will not honor ICE immigration hold requests”



from the San Francisco Examiner:

CSU police to protect undocumented immigrants from feds following Trump election

The California State University system will not cooperate with federal immigration authorities who are seeking to deport undocumented immigrants on the heels of the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, Chancellor Timothy White said Wednesday .

In his campaign speeches, Trump has pledged to begin mass deportations and to cut federal funding for cities that protect undocumented immigrants. The CSU system spans across sanctuary cities in the state including San Francisco, where law enforcement agencies limit their communication with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“Our police departments will not honor ICE immigration hold requests,” White said at the Board of Trustees meeting Wednesday in Long Beach.
