We, the undersigned, are concerned students, faculty, alumni, staff and community members, who urge President Jane Conoley and this University’s administration to act now to make CSULB a sanctuary campus. We stand in solidarity with all those who are now under direct and imminent threat as a result of Donald Trump’s recent executive order “The Muslim Ban” and direct threats against undocumented individuals.
List of Demands:
1. Immediately (May 17,2017):
a. Suspend any communication and collaboration with ICE that further supports the separation of families by deporting members of our communities.
b. In effect students experience mental distress that by de facto impacts their academic proficiency; especially, amongst students who are personally affected by their own and/ or their family’s immigration status.
2. Immediately (May 17, 2017):
a. Adopt the Resolution to Designate the CSU System a Safe Zone for Students and Families Threatened by Immigration Enforcement provided by CFA.
3. Additionally, (August 28, 2017):
a. Ensure that the Dream Resource Center provides accurate information on financial aid, alternative sources of funding such as scholarships, and financial resources modeling that of UC Berkeley
b. Hire a new director and two additional counselors who have experience working with the undocumented population and have extensive knowledge on immigration policies, and who can offer a holistic approach to improve the direction of the program.
c. Have legal counsel for students on campus
d. Change the program to be under the department of student services since; the migrant program has limited correlation between the experiences of different immigrant groups.
4. In Addition, (August 28, 2017):
a. Establish a Resource Center for the Muslim Student Association.
b. Develop a mechanism to address Zionist, Islamophobic, anti-Arab, and anti-immigrant racist behavior exhibited both by faculty and students of this campus in a post 9/11 and Trump context.
a. Divest from DHS; Boeing, IBM, Northrop Grumman, Verizon, Sevatec, Raytheon, G4s, General Electric Company, Hewlett-Packard Company, and Dell.
b. No longer allow DHS and ICE to table during career fairs and no longer have police recruiting through beachlink.
c. Demilitarize our campus police by spring 2020 by removing assault rifles and riot gear from campus police armory.
