NYC Students Call for Sanctuary Campus

This Monday, Columbia University’s provost John Chatsworth informed students and teachers that the school would become a sanctuary campus.

This decision includes barring immigration officials from campus grounds unless they present a warrant as well as amping up financial aid for undocumented students and comes as a reaction to student walkouts across the country last week.
