Sanctuary campus efforts made through “Education not Deportation”

In December of 2016, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott promised to cut funding from any Texas school that declared itself a “sanctuary campus.”

“Texas will not tolerate sanctuary campuses or cities,” Abbott tweeted. “I will cut funding for any state campus if it establishes sanctuary status.”

On Wednesday, March 29, a group of students gathered at Leech Grove for the official unveiling of the Education not Deportation coalition, that aspires to make UTEP a sanctuary campus.
