Nov. 17, 2016, Resolution from LBCCFA

Long Beach City College Faculty Association resolves to request that Superintendent-President Eloy Oakley and the Board of Trustees support the statement issued by California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White on November 17, 2016, and establish a similar policy at Long Beach City College.

The California State University policy reads as follows:

“CSU policy directs, unless contravened by California Government Code or required by law, that:

—The CSU will not enter into agreements with state or local law enforcement agencies, Homeland Security or any other federal department for the enforcement of federal immigration law;

—Our university police departments will not honor immigration hold requests; and

—Our university police do not contact, detain, question or arrest individuals solely on the basis of being—or suspected of being—a person that lacks documentation.”
