College students across the country want their campuses to be declared "sanctuaries" for illegal immigrants, similar to many cities in the United States.
At Harvard recently, a petition from "concerned" students and faculty called on the administration to "proclaim Harvard Memorial Church as part of the network of sanctuary churches that provide a refuge for students facing deportation proceedings."
At Brown University, students and staff wrote a letter to the school "to request that you investigate the possibility of our campus serving as a sanctuary for our students, our staff members and their family members who face imminent deportation."
On the campus of Rutgers University in New Jersey on Wednesday, more than 1,000 students walked out of classes to protest the election of Donald Trump. The demonstration was called "Sanctuary Campus."
One female student at the protest, similar to some demonstrators arrested in Oregon last week, admitted she didn't bother to vote in the election.
"I didn't even vote because I was so disillusioned," she said, calling Trump's victory a "wake-up call" to young people.
Another protester said Trump is not her president because he has "disrespected" blacks, Hispanics and women.
This morning, a Rutgers student who does not share the left-wing views of his fellow students was on Fox & Friends and called for the country to come together.
Akeen Anaele, an African-American student, said he got a "lot of flak" from other students for openly supporting President-elect Trump. But he said concerned students should take a step back and give Trump a chance.
"He's not even in office yet. What are you protesting right now?" he asked.
