In Ivy Leaguers Want Their Campuses to be ‘Sanctuaries’ From Trump Deportations, it discusses the movement of Ivy League schools wanting to have their campuses be sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants because of President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign to deport undocumented immigrants. Students, faculty, and alumni have all signed a letter stating what would like to happen for them and their families on campus.

The factors that contributed to this issue being discussed is that the new president of our nation, Donald Trump, has proposed that he will deport all undocumented immigrants. It’s a pretty drastic move on the president-elect’s part because it’s not something the president would do. This is more of a move a dictator would do. He’s not showing that he’s for representing ALL the people of the United States, just a certain group of people. This scares many people living here, which has caused many protests around the country, as mentioned in the article.

Rules are being applied unequally and basically punish a certain group of people. They haven’t done anything ...

    In a little district west of Washington Square the streets have run crazy and broken themselves into small strips called "places." These "places" make strange angles and curves. One Street crosses itself a time or two. An artist once discovered a valuable possibility in this street.
