From the New York Times:

Even at Berkeley, I Face Threats as an Undocumented Student

Juan Prieto
ON CAMPUS NOV. 7, 2016

BERKELEY, Calif. — Although the University of California, Berkeley, has some of the best resources in the country for undocumented students like me — in the form of financial and legal aid, for example — it’s been a tense couple of years, magnified by the anti-immigration build-a-wall language of Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Berkeley’s Undocumented Student Program, which the university established in 2012, works with more than 400 undocumented students and continues to grow as more go public about their immigration status, sometimes at considerable risk to themselves and their families.

But by coming out of the shadows, undocumented people open themselves to cruelty and threats. Last year, when I helped organize a campus protest to get the University of California to renew funding for some crucial programs for undocumented students, I was called an illegal leech who should be deported. I shrugged it off: I was proud of marching at Berkeley, where the Free Speech Movement started in the 1960s.

But looking back, I think I should have made a bigger deal about the maliciousness I witnessed and saw building. A few months later, I received an anonymous email threatening to report my family and me to immigration agents. The threat included details about my actions during the protest — it seemed to be coming from someone who had seen me on campus. I was so disturbed I stopped attending classes, and even when I returned a week later, my anxiety kept me from engaging in class discussions or focusing on my studies.

Soon after that, the Undocumented Student Program began to receive anonymous email threats about students, and a fellow undocumented friend — a prominent member of the student government — was told by another student on Facebook: “Thanks for identifying yourself as an illegal … Now get out. I’ll look for you on campus.” All of this information was brought to the administration, but there was no follow-up.

I.e., the illegal alien is complaining there was no follow-up of punishing the American citizens for reporting the presence of illegal aliens.

… This September, after a group of Trump supporters came onto campus to build a mock wall and spew racially charged talk about “illegals,” the undocumented students were told to draft a statement of inclusion as a response, and that perhaps certain departments would send it through their email listservs as a gesture of support.

Administrators have said they are determined to earn our trust, but undocumented students on campus don’t want to be placated — we want our administrators to fully stand with us through actions and not just promises. After all, when posters with anti-Semitic language began to crop up around campus in late September, the associate chancellor took swift action by sending an email to all students condemning this language.

Some argue that hateful displays of racism or anti-Semitism are different from the actions of those on campus who yell, “Build a wall!” But too often, hate speech toward immigrants in this country is written off as political opinion, and school administrators don’t want to side with one political group or another. However, this political issue happens to be our futures, in the country where we grew up.

That’s why it was disheartening when Janet Napolitano, the president of the University of California system — and, it should be noted, the former head of the Department of Homeland Security — wrote, in a Boston Globe op-ed essay, that students must be willing to listen to not just opposing views, but offensive ones, for the sake of free speech. She did not condone hate speech — “that which is designed to personally intimidate or harass” — but wrote that exceptions to free speech should be “narrowly construed.”

So many powerful college administrators across the country have made this argument now that I think they have no idea just how offensive speech has gotten, especially during this election.

This is not to say that those with conservative opinions should be silenced.

Jeb’s opinions on undocumented workers, for example, should not be silenced.

But because it is often campus conservatives who complain of the scourge of political correctness, I think it is tempting for college administrators to rally behind conservative students, to see them as the new gadflies, the protectors of free speech. Yet it is comical to think that those of us with lesser rights are somehow infringing on those who have no fear of deportation.

Juan Prieto is a senior at the University of California, Berkeley.

Now, you might think that there’s something ungracious about an illegal alien denouncing America’s First Amendment. But — don’t you realize? — he’s Undocumented. That makes him holier than you. Some topics, such as immigration policy, are just too sacred to be discussed anywhere where there are undocumented workers, undocumented students, undocumented welfare recipients, or undocumented criminals, such as in the United States.

Personally, I’m an undocumented alumnus of Berkeley with an undocumented Ph.D. in physics and an undocumented Nobel Prize. For some reason, though, the King of Sweden wasn’t welcoming of me the last time I walked up on stage with my speech. “Not you again,” the king said. “Garde!”

I blame Trump.

Commenter J1234 adds:

The seditious libel mentality is on the rise. It’s no longer just a historical curiosity unique to monarchs of the 18th century and earlier. Actually, kings and queens of three centuries ago arguably had a (somewhat) legitimate use for seditious libel laws, as their societies didn’t have the relief valve that assuages public discontent with governance – elections. Bloody revolutions on a regular basis end up hurting everyone, most of the time. Even the little people.

Today’s self appointed royalty, however, is using domestic tranquility and social piety as a pretext for silencing political opponents (like King George lll did at times.) But the mentality has to come before the codification of the mentality. It has to become second nature for a critical mass of people in society, hence (I own that word) the holy of holies of victimhood have to demonstrate to the masses how to think.

From the article:

….it is comical to think that those of us with lesser rights are somehow infringing on those who have no fear of deportation.

Illegals in my state get in-state college tuition, something that out-of-staters who live just three miles beyond the state line don’t get. They also get away with breaking immigration laws most of the time. That isn’t “lesser” rights. That’s “greater” rights.

  2. Thanks to the NYT for publishing an article so patently ridiculous that it should motivate droves of undecided to vote for Trump tomorrow.

    The internet is buzzing with hysterical screeds today. Here’s one from the Evolution Institute about how if Trump wins the presidency, men’s political psychology will be to blame.

  3. Personally, I’m an undocumented alumnus of Berkeley with an undocumented Ph.D. in physics and an undocumented Nobel Prize.

    Hey, I met you on that stage. You tripped me with your Pulitzer that you whitemanically stole from T. Genius Coates and the national debate team award you stole from those latter-day Oscar Wildes from Towson State. Oddly, you did not tootle a harmonica. Isn’t that required these days?

    The event wasn’t documented, but that fact simply proves a) I’m correct and b) more correct than anyone.

    I am also a part-penguin, part-herring Otherkin suffering terribly and often microaggressed over my desperate conflict about whether I should swim with myself, alone or in school, eat myself, or spawn a million fry–or lay just one egg in the middle of the Antarctic.

    I hope you will all contribute hugely to my Kickstarter to pay for merman-Sphenisciformes reconstructive surgery and a full beak job. If contributions are big enough, I’m also having a lateral line added where my dong used to be.

    All of this proves the Bill of Rights is outdated and should be replaced by whatever a committee of globalist elites and neoreactionary fops decides upon.

    I, of course, was an undocumented alumnus of the London School of Economics and the Cowlitz County Community College. Berkeley, pfaugh–how mid-20th century.

    No major or certificate in "deconstructing the anglocisheteropatriarchy," and I doubt he knows what "deconstructing" means anyway. But don't worry. He'll come back and invent one as soon as he figures out how to hold the community college hostage for the funds.

    I've had those things happen; it wasn't at the hands of an immigrant, even if that's anecdotal. We've been victims of both white and black native born assailants. Of course there are violent and felony criminal illegal immigrants, too. The drug gang leaders and their followers sure have some of those who are engaged in cross border smuggling of people, weapons and illegal drugs, and citizen enablers and partners.

    Having seen this guy's self description, I stand by my choice not to personally be involved in displays of Homeland Security force, but I will modify it to add, if you want to turn him in, I'm not going to interfere, either. It's too bad some of those who agree with him that are native born wouldn't self deport too. :-) Our biggest threat to liberty in this country comes from within, not from without.

    All things considered, though, most immigrants are more law abiding in other than obeying the crazy quilt immigration laws, and fear anything that might draw unwanted attention to them, and therefore contact with law enforcement.

    "I think as Americans, we need to ask ourselves why threatening others has suddenly become defensible and even respectable “political discourse.”"

    Given how 95% of your comments are mocking, threatening, if not downright malice, it's pretty clear that you feel that pretty much any negative behavior is perfectly within the realm of acceptable behavior, at least when it's directed at someone simply for the crime of being born a white man, and not at a minority who has done something despicable to said white man. It's not the behavior that bothers you in the slightest, it's just the wrong side of the who/whom equation.

    That being said, your hypocrisy is of course perfectly in line with many others on the Left, so you're certainly in good company with many others on the political short bus.

    If the 47 million recipients of food stamps--who now have use of a debit card with EBT benefits--were instead standing in bread lines, as occurred during the depression, you might reconsider the definition of a proper depression. Technology that has enabled the 47 million to hide in plain sight might explain the lack of a visible concern for a real economic problem.

    Difficult choice I have to make every day if I and my descendants are to survive:

    Should I publicly support the restoration of the country that I and my descendants were born to, thereby exposing myself (and my descendants) to the violence and employment depredations of Tiny Duck, Juan Prieto and their allies, or should I keep my head down to reduce my immediate risks but increase the long term likelihood of civilizational metadeath?

    This is like a gentleman’s Bolshevism. They don’t cut off heads, they just slowly reduce community services and resources until we suffocate–but their goals are the same as they were for undermining pre-war Germany, when a lot of them essentially set up a Bolshevik showroom in Berlin.

The only reason they are not all here now is that we are limiting entry to X fake asylum applicants a day.

    For the tiny number to show up to the hearing to have their application rejected, or who are somehow caught, perhaps for a crime, and then ordered deported, they will not actually be deported since they all know what countries do not take deportees.

    What, was there a chemistry exam you weren’t quite ready for? Needed a little break?

I’ll look for you on campus.”

    Lol! The horror, the horror! And notice, the other “undocumented” invader is a “prominent member of the student government.” The repression!!!

    Theresa May urged to accept more skilled Indian workers to help trade deal.

    Negotiating closer trading relationship, PM says she will improve visa offer if India takes back citizens who are in UK illegally.

    That may be the way to do it. Indian students have been complaining that UK student visa issuance to Indian students has dropped from about 60,000 a year to about 11,000 a year since 2010.

    It appears that student visas are a sort of pain-point, far more than other categories, and Prime Minister May is using them to get leverage over other immigration problems. This may be because student visas are often granted to the children of the elite.

    This might be a useful tactic for us to adopt. Tell the third-world elite “your children get to study here only if you crack down on your proles illegally migrating to our country.”

    Not surprisingly, the Guardian is using the specter of losing the benefits of free trade as the reason that this is a bad idea.

    Actually, Lord Jeff, one can. As proven by the findings of your own excellent digging.

    BTW here’s a profile of said Bastion of Higher Ed, San Bernardino Valley (community) College, from whence his matriculation to UC-B was launched.

    http://www.usnews.com/education/community-colleges/san-bernardino-valley-college-CC07481

    55% female, 76% Hispanic and black, 58% receive grant or scholarship aid, 31% receive Pell grants.

    This is one of what I call the Soylent Brown campuses. They turn melanin into nice chewy careers for those who work there. Though I’m suspecting that most of the faculty is part-time or on-line:

    http://www.usnews.com/education/community-colleges/san-bernardino-valley-college-CC07481/degrees

    No major or certificate in “deconstructing the anglocisheteropatriarchy,” and I doubt he knows what “deconstructing” means anyway. But don’t worry. He’ll come back and invent one as soon as he figures out how to hold the community college hostage for the funds.

  65. Hopefully Señor Prieto will wake up on Wednesday morning as just another non-augmented Mexican citizen ready to start packing.

    As freshly transfered-back student, he’ll be able to dedicate himself to full time deconstruction of Tijuana cispatriarchy on the local heroin market:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/nov/07/theresa-may-visa-offer-india-citizens-uk

    Theresa May urged to accept more skilled Indian workers to help trade deal.

    Negotiating closer trading relationship, PM says she will improve visa offer if India takes back citizens who are in UK illegally.
     

    That may be the way to do it. Indian students have been complaining that UK student visa issuance to Indian students has dropped from about 60,000 a year to about 11,000 a year since 2010.

    It appears that student visas are a sort of pain-point, far more than other categories, and Prime Minister May is using them to get leverage over other immigration problems. This may be because student visas are often granted to the children of the elite.

    This might be a useful tactic for us to adopt. Tell the third-world elite "your children get to study here only if you crack down on your proles illegally migrating to our country."

    Not surprisingly, the Guardian is using the specter of losing the benefits of free trade as the reason that this is a bad idea.

    At some point in the last 30 years, it has become not just economic, but political orthodoxy that economic growth, free trade and free movement of labor are joined at the hip, and to consider them separately will cause unspeakable harm. This is because our globalist elites have abandoned the notion of political and social choice, and take it as gospel that what is "optimal" in economic theory is gospel, regardless of social consequences.

    There is no doubt that Choate left a significant impression on Kennedy, and the release of recent archival documents shows that this impression may have been greater than previously understood. Recent reports by CBS news and other news outlets that cite a book by television host Chris Matthews suggest that Kennedy’s famous speech that includes the line “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country” may have been in part a reflection of a Choate headmaster’s words. Headmaster George St. John, who gave sermons that JFK attended, included similar words in his speeches.

    A few years ago, an archivist at Choate named Judy Donald found one of St. John’s notebooks in which he wrote about a quote from a Harvard dean who said, “The youth who loves his Alma Mater will always ask, not ‘What can she do for me?’ but ‘What can I do for her?’” St. John was often heard to say, it’s "not what Choate does for you, but what you can do for Choate," and Kennedy may have used this phrasing, adapted from his headmaster, in his famous inaugural address, delivered in January of 1961.

    The establishment calls it free trade, but it is anything but free trade. Hundreds of pages of a legal agreement, saddled with thousands of pages of regulations, and other implementing rules, is hardly the stuff of an arms-length transaction between two consenting parties. It restricts and protects specified parties, yet proponents of these trade agreements have the temerity to call critics of these trade deals as restrictionists and protectionists.

    Juan Prieto's "Deconstructing the anglocisheteropatriarchy" is a very useful coinage indeed, one that can be turned around ironically. It has great explanatory power and applies to a large variety of activities that the term "political correctness" doesn't describe very well.

    From feminist op-eds in the Guardian newspaper to T. Coate's life's work, from renaming colleges at Yale to protests at Oberlin about "culturally appropriate dining halls", they're deconstructing the anglocisheteropatriarchy!

    I've had those things happen; it wasn't at the hands of an immigrant, even if that's anecdotal. We've been victims of both white and black native born assailants. Of course there are violent and felony criminal illegal immigrants, too. The drug gang leaders and their followers sure have some of those who are engaged in cross border smuggling of people, weapons and illegal drugs, and citizen enablers and partners.

    Having seen this guy's self description, I stand by my choice not to personally be involved in displays of Homeland Security force, but I will modify it to add, if you want to turn him in, I'm not going to interfere, either. It's too bad some of those who agree with him that are native born wouldn't self deport too. :-) Our biggest threat to liberty in this country comes from within, not from without.

    All things considered, though, most immigrants are more law abiding in other than obeying the crazy quilt immigration laws, and fear anything that might draw unwanted attention to them, and therefore contact with law enforcement.

    Given how 95% of your comments are mocking, threatening, if not downright malice, it’s pretty clear that you feel that pretty much any negative behavior is perfectly within the realm of acceptable behavior, at least when it’s directed at someone simply for the crime of being born a white man, and not at a minority who has done something despicable to said white man. It’s not the behavior that bothers you in the slightest, it’s just the wrong side of the who/whom equation.

The only reason they are not all here now is that we are limiting entry to X fake asylum applicants a day.

    For the tiny number to show up to the hearing to have their application rejected, or who are somehow caught, perhaps for a crime, and then ordered deported, they will not actually be deported since they all know what countries do not take deportees.

    No, you cant. If you never produced identification they would arrest you and keep you on jail until you cooperated. If you admitted that you were just pulling a prank, the judge make an example out of you.
    Not having an ID is a legal grey area, kind of like being homeless. It isn’t illegal, but it isn’t legal. You can be arrested and detained.

    Speaking of Mexico, there is now a Calais Jr. squalid camp of Africans in Tijuana waiting to file their BS asylum applications at the San Diego border station, at which point they will be released without further monitoring and told, perhaps with a knowing wink wink, to come back in a few months for their asylum hearing. The only reason they are not all here now is that we are limiting entry to X fake asylum applicants a day.

    For the tiny number to show up to the hearing to have their application rejected, or who are somehow caught, perhaps for a crime, and then ordered deported, they will not actually be deported since they all know what countries do not take deportees.
