Sanctuary campuses harbor illegal aliens by refusing to hand them over to the feds.
Sanctuary cities – same idea.
Neither is good for America.
Now, a new federal proposal seeks to strip funds from these schools that refuse to enforce the law.
A U.S. representative from California has introduced a bill to block Title IV funds to colleges and universities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) introduced the No Funding for Sanctuary Campuses Act in late December to define “sanctuary campus” and create financial penalties for any “institutions of higher education that violates immigration laws.” The bill, H.R. 6530, was co-sponsored by Representatives Tom McClintock (R-CA) and Lou Barletta (R-PA).
“It’s by no means unreasonable to expect the nation’s higher learning institutions to follow the law the same way we expect states and localities to abide by the law,” Hunter told the Washington Examiner in an interview published on Tuesday. “If a school wants federal money, an open declaration that it’s a sanctuary should disqualify it for federal support.
“It’s free to do that, of course, but there should be a consequence in the form of withheld federal funding — it’s that simple,” the California congressman stated.
Can you imagine if funding is stripped from these schools, Obamacare is heavily repealed, AND Planned Parenthood gets defunded?
Talk about a heckuva year for the new president.
