Protests against Donald Trump and his cabinet are continuing nationwide. Today students at colleges and universities across the country are holding a second day of action to demand their campuses become “sanctuary campuses,” where administrators refuse to share information with immigration authorities, refuse to allow ICE agents on campus and support equal access to in-state tuition and financial aid and scholarships for undocumented students.

President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to immediately deport up to 3 million people upon taking office. More than 100 campuses participated in the first national walkout on November 17, prompting a series of university administrators to agree to designate the schools as sanctuary campuses—including Trump’s alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania.
