Weighing the Question of Becoming a Sanctuary Campus

In the face of uncertainty about the future status of undocumented students under the U.S. government’s current administration, members of college and university communities across the country have called for “sanctuary campuses” to protect vulnerable students. At Claiming Williams 2016, in front of an overflow audience of students, faculty and staff, Political Science Professor Mark Reinhardt (former Gaudino Scholar) joined lawyer Dan Berger, a frequent speaker and writer on student immigration issues, for a conversation about the sanctuary movement and the costs/implications of the sanctuary concept for students and campuses.
