Baylor University petitions to be Sanctuary Campus

Baylor Students Petition for Sanctuary Campus Status

Baylor University joined the mushrooming list of American college campuses eager to declare sanctuary campus status. A handful of graduate students from the religion department petitioned to defy federal and state laws to provide a safe haven to students, faculty, and community members living in the United States illegally.

Oh my gosh. What has happened to that school? My Dad graduated from Baylor University and my Mom also went there. He would be rolling over in his grave if he saw how this campus has changed.
It is not enough you have all the problems with the football dept. and rape charges but now going against the law of the land by the RELIGION DEPARTMENT!!!!!  Did they miss the part where there is EXTREME vetting to get past the pearly gates into heaven?

According to the article, at least some on campus are against this idea. I hope that Baylor can get back to what made it a great school and put God back into what they do.

****UPDATE***** Feb. 22, 2017
WACO - Baylor officials rejected a plea from students to make the University a “Sanctuary Campus” on Monday.
President Garland released a statement saying the University is bound to uphold all federal and state laws.
“It is not in the University’s best interests – nor in keeping with our legal covenants- to declare Baylor a ‘sanctuary campus’ without the proper authorization or legal authority,” President Garland wrote.
So glad that common sense prevailed. :)
