U of Illinois won't be designated 'sanctuary' for immigrants

There are 1 comment on the Hawk Eye story from Dec 7, 2016, titled U of Illinois won't be designated 'sanctuary' for immigrants. In it, Hawk Eye reports that:

The University of Illinois will not label its three campuses as sanctuaries for immigrant students illegally living in the U.S., school leaders said Tuesday as they pushed aside pressure from faculty and others to make the designation. Petitions from students and faculty at campuses in Urbana-Champaign, Chicago and Springfield were among efforts by students and others at more than 100 colleges and universities throughout the country to make the schools sanctuaries for immigrants following President-elect Donald Trump's promises to crack down on illegal immigration.

As a former B/N resident I find this most surprising.
Illinois has one of the highest illegal populations in the country and the mayor of Chicago has made it clear her will fight any attempt to round up and deport illegals.
