A campaign is ramping up that is targeting eleven “sanctuary schools” in California that are known to be a safe haven for illegal immigrants. The man behind the campaign is threatening the schools to either stop providing aid and comfort to those who are breaking the law or face prosecution for “sedition.”
Los Angeles-based David Horowitz Freedom Center has produced an online post in which he points out how illegal alien students are being geared towards an incitement of rebellion against US government.
“Sanctuary campuses are not only part of a radical attack on America’s social, political and educational establishment but a dagger aimed at the rule of law and the nation’s security,” he wrote.
He then began to name names, including former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who took the job as president of the University of California after leaving DHS, pledged $5 million for illegals to attend the university and later announced it would not aid the central government regarding illegal alien students.
“There are now 500 sanctuary cities in the United States, virtually all Democratic, which are pledged not to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security in its efforts to secure our borders, identify terrorists, and deport criminal aliens,” Horowitz added. “California has taken the lead in this pernicious movement and is about to become the first sanctuary state. Moreover, every public California institution of higher learning has declared itself a “sanctuary campus” including the University of California whose president Janet Napolitano is a former Obama appointee to head the Department of Homeland Security itself. This is the most massive movement of sedition since the Civil War and is the centerpiece of the so-called “resistance” – itself a form of sedition in a democracy – that Democrats have mobilized against the Trump administration.”
He then spoke about the new campaign that he has begun to engage.
The Freedom Center’s “No Sanctuary Campuses” campaign began last month at UC Berkeley when Milo Yiannopolous was scheduled to launch our campaign but was prevented from speaking by leftwing fascists whose riot caused over $100,000 in property damage and resulted in serious injuries for several bystanders, while the Berkeley police looked on and did nothing.
Sanctuary campuses are not only part of a radical attack on America’s social, political, and educational establishment but a dagger aimed at the rule of law and the nation’s safety. The illegal immigrant’s first act on American soil is to break the most fundamental of U.S. laws. The administrators who make their schools sanctuaries are making that lawlessness part of the character and identity of our most important intellectual institutions. The Freedom Center’s campaign will move from California to the rest of the U.S, and hopefully inspire others to do the same. It will call out by name administrators such as Napolitano and White who defy federal immigration law and hopefully will galvanize trustees, alumni and attorneys general to resist this assault on our country and take action against these administrators. It will also make the case against sanctuary campuses to the American public whose taxes underwrite the UC and Cal State University systems and other schools across the country.
Horowitz then warns, “The ‘sanctuary movement’ began as a concerted effort by left-wing administrations in major American cities to undermine the Patriot Act and make it more difficult for the Department of Homeland Security to ferret out terrorists and criminal aliens, and deport them. This movement has already led to murders and other crimes committed by illegal aliens to whom sanctuary cities give immunity and protection. But since the election of a president determined to rectify this untenable situation the left has doubled down and is now working to spread this seditious movement from our cities to our colleges and universities, and, in California, to make the entire state a sanctuary for foreign criminals.”
While California has been pushing to secede, something I wish they would actually do and stop talking about, Horowitz uses secession in the title of his article as something bad. Sure, the people pushing for it now in California are not good people, but the they have the right to do that if that is what the people want to do peacefully.
The problem California is facing is that they are willing to thumb their nose at the enforcement of immigration law, even providing a safe haven to illegal aliens that murder American citizens.
“With its proposed budget, the Trump administration has taken the first step in dealing with this internal threat to American security by withdrawing federal funding for criminal municipalities and counties which are in open defiance of federal law,” Horowitz writes. “De-funding is a good first step but is not enough to counter-act the serious threat that the sanctuary movement poses to our nation’s security in the midst of the global war that Islamists have declared on us. What is needed is the prosecution of the criminal officials leading this movement. The Department of Justice needs to investigate and indict the mayors of these municipalities and the derelict presidents and chancellors of sanctuary campuses.”
While I’m doubtful that Horowitz will actually prosecute anyone for sedition, it’s nice to see that someone will call it for what it is, and no I’m not talking about secession, but the sanctuary cities. Let’s see how far he gets and whether or not there will be any actual teeth in his campaign.
