Say NO to Janet Napolitano as this year's UC Hastings commencement speaker. 

Janet Napolitano represents the heartbreaking impact of U.S. immigration policies on individuals and families as she has overseen the largest number of deportations in our history. As Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Ms. Napolitano spearheaded inhumane policies, including wide implementation of so-called “Secure Communities,” a deportation program notorious for its conflation of the criminal and immigration systems. Her actions have caused profound tragedy to members of the Class of 2014, their families, and members of the Hastings community at large. You can make a difference by adding your name to this petition.
