(Tea Party PAC) – When did we suddenly start celebrating illegal aliens like it was some kind of race or religion?
To be an “undocumented immigrant” means that you are in the country illegally, i.e. not complying with our nation’s immigration laws.
It’s not something to be proud of. It’s not like your nation of origin or your religion or the color of your skin, something you can celebrate and be proud of and demand equal rights.
You choose to abide by a nation’s laws or to break them.
And it’s illegal to remain in the US when you’ve been given no legal right to do so.
When did this become such a crazy idea?
Apparently, the nation’s leading university thinks that being an illegal alien is something to be celebrated. That’s right; a university with one of the world’s top law schools is celebrating literal lawlessness.
The once-prestigious university recently hosted a special graduation ceremony for illegal aliens, called “UndocuGraduation.”
The ceremony was the first of its kind at Harvard, and why wouldn’t it be? Who the heck has special graduation ceremonies for illegal aliens?
The “UndocuGraduation,” which seems to be some kind of failed play on words, included a speech from a professor who was once arrested for protesting Donald Trump, unless you had any doubts about the ideological leanings of the event organizers.
Breitbart News reports:
The graduation ceremony — dubbed “UndocuGraduation” — was hosted at Harvard on Wednesday to celebrate illegal immigrant graduates, according to a report by The Harvard Crimson, which added that one of the ceremony’s guest speakers was history professor Kirsten Weld, who had been arrested in 2017 while protesting President Trump.
The professor had been one of the thirty-one Harvard professors arrested in the fall of 2017 for blocking traffic during a protest of the president’s decision to repeal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
“The road to being whoever you want to be and figuring out what that means has been longer,” said Weld, “and it’s been more winding for you than it has been for many of your peers at the College and at the graduate schools here at Harvard — and I think that’s really what we’re recognizing here today.”
Professor Weld was joined by former director of Act on a Dream, Pierre R. Berastain, as well as Harvard Financial Aid Initiative director Michael Esposito, and Harvard custodian and Temporary Protected Status coalition organizer Doris Reina-Landaverde, who all spoke.
The ceremony was brought to the school by the Act on a Dream group, which is trying to pressure Harvard administrators to increase the school’s support for illegal immigrant students and advocate for legislative measures designed to abolish ICE, according to the group’s website.
“The event was organized to highlight the struggles and the ways in which undocumented students persevere on this campus,” said Act on a Dream co-director Emily A. Romero, according to The Harvard Crimson, “This campus can be very difficult to navigate, yet here are so many people who came out at the end of this tunnel as better individuals than how they entered it.”
The event’s keynote speaker was reportedly Salvadoran-American poet and activist Javier Zamora, who told the graduating students that “nobody, not this institution, not this president” could have anticipated the accomplishments of illegal immigrants.
“And that’s their lack of imagination,” added Zamora, “That’s their lack of dream.”
Dude. No one is saying these people can’t accomplish anything. We’re saying they shouldn’t be allowed to stay in our country while breaking our laws. Can Harvard graduates not even understand this?
