ICE arrest (new pic)A spokesman for a network of black conservatives says officials with a prominent California university need to be held accountable for encouraging its students to defy federal immigration agents.

UC-Berkeley is openly defying the feds by attempting to guard students who are in the country illegally from government officials, warning those students that the school could be the target of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement "sweep." Officials have prepared a catalog and toolkit to help them avoid apprehension as well as a handout entitled "Know Your Rights If Approached by Immigration Enforcement Agents."

Derryck Green with Project 21 Black Leadership Network says the government needs to crack down on such open defiance of the law – and if the school is "going to openly defy a federal immigration law, then they should cease to receive federal funds." He adds: "And I think that's something that should be taken up sooner rather than later."

Green says "if the faculty and students are going to engage in this kind of behavior, not only should the school no longer receive federal funds, but I think there needs to be some sort of criminal consequences for those people who actively engage and decide to participate it preventing ICE from doing its job."

UC-Berkeley has an official policy of non-cooperation with ICE officials. The school sounded the alarm after learning that ICE intends to target Northern California for immigration sweeps.
