[Ed. – Does his ‘magnanimity’ extend to aliens who have committed violent crimes?]
A Yale University law professor encouraged people to “hide” illegal immigrants from ICE, but says he has “no qualms” about revealing the home addresses of ICE employees.
Gregg Gonsalves, an assistant professor of Epidemiology and associate professor of law at Yale, has written numerous social media posts blasting the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) and supporting illegal immigration.
“[ICE is] raiding restaurants, setting up roadblocks in New England, getting on buses to check for foreigners,” Gonsalves tweeted in late June. “We’ve unleashed something evil in the United States. Let the pundits debate who’s winning the day as immigrants get rounded up. The rest of us have to fight.”
“[W]e hide immigrants from ICE if we have to,” Gonsalves wrote in a subsequent tweet, prompting Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Lawrence Jones to ask whether he intended to suggest aiding and abetting criminals.
“It’s called civil disobedience,” he argued in a follow-up tweet after blocking Jones’ Twitter account.
“Aiding and abetting is about facilitating crime,” he added, asserting that “here the moral crime is against immigrant children and families, women, and workers.”
