You are sooo right. If this happens, you'd better move out of Oberlin before it's too late. Gangs is one of the FIRST things that will happen, based on the experiences of OTHER sanctuary cities. Are YOU going to the city council meeting Monday? If you don't "say" it now...it'll be too late later. The college towns are sometimes the worst. Where ELSE can you get ALMOST adults to march in the streets AGAINST the rights of Americans? It's always been that way. Old enough to march and protest, young enough to think it's "cool" and young enough NOT to realize that this is YOUR nation. And then again, Oberlin College has a LOT of foreigners there. What do THEY care about America?
Hey there! Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

I purchased a mini-camcorder for Monday - and fine tuned my presentation.

My daughter asked me WHY Oberlin WANTS to become a sanctuary city? She said "What's in it for them?" "What GOOD could POSSIBLY come from calling yourself a sanctuary city?"

Good questions - but I have no answer for her. Any hints WHY they would do this?

THAT is the real ball-buster isn't it? The WHY.

No sane person with any common sense would think that illegal aliens are a GOOD thing for any community - much less their OWN.

There is no doubt in my mind that this IS orchestrated by the Mexican consulates and La Raza, MeCHA, LULAC, and other racist latino groups.

There can't be any other reason. It defies logic.

Oberlin is probably like most of the other Universities in this country. Using the diversity argument to increase their enrollment and more importantly their PROFITS.It's just another big business scam masquerading as higher education.

Agreed. There can be NO OTHER explanation except for the root of all evil - the almighty dollar.

Most schools, including elementary schools are about indoctrination. I've read that some elementary schools now are having children say the pledge of allegiance...to the MEXICAN FLAG. To "teach them about diversity". To teach them about being traitors, I say.
I don't know if the college is backing this or not, but I would assume so. They are using the excuse that they broke the law to help slaves hide after they escaped. That's a guy from Catholic Charities saying that. There is a Cleveland radio station where the DJ interviewed this guy and he pretty well shot that comparison down, and the guy tried to make excuses and back down, but the DJ won the debate. People just aren't falling for that old CRAP anymore. They never did for long. It's a very weak argument.
I know you are busy but I found this.

"Public School Teaches How To Enter U.S. Illegally "

A public high school in Ohio is forcing students to assume a Latino identity then teaching them how to enter the United States illegally and how to forge documents in order to live in the town as an illegal alien.

The Spanish class at the taxpayer-funded school Olentangy Liberty in the upscale Columbus suburb of Powell features a role-playing project in which students must assume a Latino identity, create an imaginary life in a foreign country and develop a plan to immigrate to the U.S.

The students are initially instructed to attempt entering the country legally by filling out paperwork from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. But the teacher who runs the class, Erica Vieyra, stamps the word “denied” on every imaginary application and instructs students to devise a plan to cross the border illegally The teacher encourages the students to somehow find a way across the border and actually forge documents so they can live in Columbus.

Once in the country illegally, they must figure out how to survive, get food and a place to live. The students are forced to go to real businesses in the area and ask for Spanish-language job applications. They also visit banks and ask for account documents in Spanish.
