Maggie Lit, Campus Reform, December 17, 2014
Students at George Washington University (GWU) willingly signed a petition supporting the deportation of one American citizen in exchange for one illegal immigrant.
“Please sign our petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen, in exchange for one undocumented immigrant,” read the petition. “Everyone must be allowed a shot at the ‘American Dream.’ Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another’s dreams come true.”
“It makes sense,” one student told Campus Reform. “Like, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of like hatred against undocumented immigrants and it’s not necessarily their fault.”
“Everybody deserves a shot and we shouldn’t rule anybody out,” said another.
Campus Reform was at GWU for around an hour and was able to gather signatures from more than two-thirds of the students they talked to.
