Students Protest Border Patrol Recruitment

The Seattle Post Intelligencer is reporting that students at Seattle University organized a protest against the Border Patrol presence at a recruiting fair. According to the article:

The official position of students was that having the Border Patrol on campus could make trouble for students and SU staff who are in the country illegally.

"We feel their presence makes students and workers feel unsafe," said SU student Marianne Mork.

And so they chanted their way across campus with cardboard signs.

Kudos to the students for raising the torch in a hostile political climate. If you support the students' acitons check out the PI site and leave a positive comment.
