Liberal College Demands “Sanctuary Campus” where Border Patrol is Excluded

A group of “undocumented students and allies” at Cal State-San Marcos discussed Tuesday why their university needs to be a “sanctuary campus.” 

The panel discussion stemmed from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) having a booth at a job fair last month, upsetting “Standing Together As oNe Dream (STAND),” an illegal immigration advocacy group.

A faculty advisor to the group later sent an open letter to CSUSM’s Career Center Director Pamela Wells, explaining that she became alarmed upon arriving on campus for the job fair to find a CBP vehicle and three police cars (all empty) parked on campus.

“My heart froze because I immediately became concerned for our students’ safety and wellbeing,” she wrote.


A group of “undocumented students and allies” hosted a “safe space forum” Tuesday to address the “psychological impact” of the presence of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) at a job fair last month.

“The undocumented students and allies stand in unity for a better and safer university,” an advertisement for the event stated. “Join us as we deconstruct the emotional and psychological impact of Customs & Border Patrol agents had during the Job Fair and how it threatened the safety of our students.”

In April, CBP set up a booth during a job fair at California State University, San Marcos, prompting the fear and outrage of a group known as “Standing Together As oNe Dream (STAND),” an illegal immigration advocacy group.

A faculty advisor to the group later sent an open letterto Career Center Director Pamela Wells explaining that she became alarmed upon arriving on campus for the job fair to find a CBP vehicle and three police cars (all empty) parked on campus.

“My heart froze because I immediately became concerned for our students’ safety and wellbeing,” she wrote. “When I parked in the parking garage, I texted [STAND President] Julio  and let him know what I saw, ask where he was, and if he (and others) were okay.”
