WATCH: Tucker Battles College President on 'Sanctuary Campus' Plans
Dozens of colleges are now making plans to become sanctuary campuses in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump's victory.
The campuses plan to utilize administrators to protect students in the country illegally from federal immigration authorities.
Michael Roth, the president of Wesleyan University in Connecticut, joined Tucker Carlson to debate the merits of such a plan.
Carlson asked whether Roth was prepared to forfeit millions in taxpayer money if the Trump administration makes deportation its policy, and the school decides to disobey a federal order.
"We certainly hope it doesn't come to losing federal funding," Roth said, "What we're not going to do is not cooperate with [extrajudicial] deportation proceedings."
Carlson said the school's position was akin to "a rich kid denouncing his parents while living in the guesthouse."
Roth said Wesleyan would seek legal avenues, should Trump's White House seek to deport any of its students, rather than simply defy a command from Washington.
"Without warrants and subpoena's, we're not going to voluntarily cooperate with border patrol people," Roth said.
