In an email to Fox News, a university spokesman admitted UCLA was "unaware of the courses to be offered" by NDU. Fox News has repeatedly reached out to the UCLA professors who, on their own, established NDU, with no oversight from university administrators.

When asked for comment, Kent Wong, director of the UCLA Labor Center, hung up on Fox News several times. He does, however, speak frequently in support of so-called DREAMers.

At one rally, he told an audience of cheering young activists "you will go onto become lawyers and teachers and doctors and members of the U.S. Senate to replace those old white men."

How does UCLA establish a separate "university" (for activists!?!?!?!) and UCLA administration doesn't know what courses are offered by the (cough, cough) National Dream University?

Nothing racist about Kent WONG'S statement is there? Based on that, I would love to know what courses were going to be offered.

I don't understand why this is not seen as a takeover of our country? Yet Obama & our politicians want to let millions more in.

This brings unwanted disgust towards them.

Wow! And, they have the nerve to constantly whine about racism.

Well, I have been saying this for a while now. Unfortunately, by the time the occupation is complete those who are currently in office pandering to the illegals will be retired and if there are any taxpayers left, the current treasonous politicians will be collecting their big fat pensions. The rest of us that are non-hispanic will be in deep doo-doo.

UCLA didn't establish the so-called "National Dream University" -- it was established under the auspices of the "UCLA Labor Center" and the "National Labor College." Considering that the UCLA Labor Center has two facilities (one off-campus and one "almost" off-campus), I suspect that there was little oversight by the UCLA administration -- they simply gave money to a bunch of "leftist radicals" and walked away. As a UCLA alumnus, I think that the "UCLA Labor Center" is a pretty much a waste of taxpayer money and that its functions can be folded into other entities.

Judging from what the "UCLA Labor Center" offers, the "National Dream University" probably would've offered courses like "Agitational Communication", "Indigenous Mexican and Central American Migrants and Labor", "Immigrant Rights, Labor, and Higher Education", "U.S./Mexico Relations", "Mass Incarceration of African Americans and Latinos", "Planning Issues in Latina/Latino Communities", etc. Overall, it sounds like a curriculum to teach folks to view themselves as "victims" and "milk the system" for everything they can get. As for Kent Wong, he was probably hired by UCLA due to the influence of his father, the late Delbert E. Wong. If UCLA expected Kent Wong to be like his father, they got the wrong "Wong"...

That is a very fair thought out statement, and true. I can see them all with their big fat pensions now, laughing all the way to the bank, and we are left holding what!

Unfortunately for us, those in power right now, could seem to care less about what us non-hispanic's feel.

Yup. Those are pretty much the same courses I had in mind.

If Obama gets re-electeed, Kent Wong should apply for a position to work on his administration.

What a shame for his father. Talk about polar opposites. Maybe Kent was switched at birth???
