Yale law professor advocates for hiding illegal immigrants from ICE, calls it ‘civil disobedience’


A Yale University law professor says he believes hiding illegal immigrants from Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents is an act of “civil disobedience.”

Gregg Gonsalves, an assistant professor of epidemiology and associate professor of law at Yale, also advocated on Twitter for publicly releasing the home addresses of key ICE officials. He said he would have no problem with showing up at their homes, Campus Reform reported.

“I’m such a bad person. 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,” a screenshot of the tweet states.

In June, Gonsalves tweeted: “[ICE is] raiding restaurants, setting up roadblocks in New England, getting on buses to check for foreigners. 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.”

In another recent tweet, he stated: “And we hide immigrants from ICE if we have to.”

That led Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Lawrence Jones to ask Gonsalves if he really meant to show support for “aiding and abetting.”

Part of Gonsalves’ reply noted that he has criticized policies of both Republican and Democratic presidents in the past, “including Clinton and Obama.”

He blocked Jones’ Twitter account after stating, “It’s called civil disobedience,” according to Campus Reform.- READ MORE


So-called comedian Michelle Wolf has raised trolling for attention to a new level. Sure, the former “Daily Show” figure and host of “The Break with Michelle Wolf” on Netflix might not be like, any good at her professional calling of being funny. But she’s sure good at stunts.

And now, a viral video that equates Immigration and Customs Enforcement with the Islamic State group. Because, get it, “ICE” and “ISIS” sound similar? So abolish ICE! Or just compare its agents to terrorists, whatever gets you clicks.

Former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan, needless to say, wasn’t particularly amused. In an appearance on Fox News’ “Cavuto Live” on Saturday, he called Wolf out.

“It’s the most repulsive thing I’ve seen in my 34 years. I heard you say earlier that ‘I’m angry.’ You’re damn right I’m angry because that’s repulsive and I should be outraged by that comment,” Homan said, according to The Daily Caller.

“Let me tell you, the joint terrorism task force. We are an agency that supports a joint terrorism task force with the FBI, we have the most participants of any federal agency, we investigate terrorism organizations,” he added.

“We have arrested terrorists inside the United States and deported them.”

“Yeah, ISIS who cut their heads off people. It’s just ridiculous. We’ve saved over several thousand children from drug traffickers… We’ve arrested over 2,000 child predators that have been trafficking in children for sexual exploitation and pornography,” he added. – READ MORE
