Yale Law Prof Encourages People To "Hide Immigrants From ICE"

Authored by Grace Gottschling via Campus Reform,

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.”

In addition to his support of illegal immigrants, Gonsalves has also endorsed violating the privacy of ICE agents and immigration officials, calling for their addresses to be released to the public.

When one Twitter user asked if “anyone already made a map of all the detention centers, ICE offices, locations of companies supplying them,” Gonsalves suggested that the “home addresses of major ICE officials” should be released, as well.

“I’m such a bad person,” Gonsalves wrote. “I have no qualms about showing up at ICE regional directors’ homes. They can leave their jobs at the office and feel free from scrutiny at home. Lucky them.” 

In follow-up tweet, Gonsalves clarified that releasing the information would be “a last resort” after another user warned that “this could cause collateral damage.”

The professor’s criticism of ICE was also evident in May, when he commented on an image of a warning sign depicting a person holding a young child above the open mouth of an alligator. In his tweet, Gonsalves wrote that the image can be used as a “new logo for ICE.”

More recently, Gonsalves blasted President Trump on Wednesday, calling the commander-in-chief a “sociopath” who is living in an “out of control, chaotic, and compromised” White House with his “accomplices.”

And in a June 16 tweet, he warned that Trump voters will ultimately “have to live with the guilt of their choices” after “seeing their neighbors dragged away” by ICE.

Campus Reform reached out to Yale University and Yale Law School for comment, but did not receive a reply from either in time for publication.
