Student protesters demand a #SanctuaryCampus for immigrants under a Trump presidency

0

Hundreds of college students at campuses around the country marched and rallied Wednesday against President-elect Donald Trump's campaign-trail rhetoric to deport undocumented aliens from the United States, the Associated Press reports.

Students urged administrators to protect students and employees against immigration action under a Trump presidency.

Supporters on social media used the hashtag #SanctuaryCampus to post photos, videos and calls to rally.

"What do we want?' A Sanctuary campus!"

Organizers said actions were planned at more than 80 schools, including Vermont's Middlebury College, where about 400 people gathered, and Yale University, where demonstrators numbered about 600, according to the Associated Press.

Students urged their campus administrators not share their personal information with immigration officials or allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents on campus.

Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C. and New York City have already vowed to be so-called "sanctuary cities."

Brown University also took part in the nationwide protest.
