Trump Wall

by on May 10, 2016

WHO PAYS FOR THE INCLUSIVE GLOBAL CAMPUS AND ALL THE WHINY BRATS WHO GO THERE. CERTAINLY NOT THE ILLEGALS

Even before the wall went up, it generated controversy on Facebook. UW President Ana Mari Cauce wrote that she supported students’ right to express their ideas but called the wall “offensive.”

Cauce wrote that the wall appears “to celebrate ideals contrary to the values of an inclusive, global campus and our drive, as an educational institution, to connect as a diverse community of individuals, rather than to divide.”

Her comments got a “like” or “heart” from more than 340 readers on Facebook.

She wrote that “as someone who arrived in this country as a refugee and someone who believes you cannot have excellence without diversity, I stand in solidarity with the hurt and pain of refugees, exiles, or immigrants, especially those who are undocumented, who see this framing of the rally as demeaning and devaluing their worth to society and to this campus.”

Cauce was born in Cuba. Her father, Vicente, was the Cuban minister of education; the family fled the country in 1959, after Fidel Castro overthrew the Batista government.
