And people can’t understand why anger is growing.

Quote:
More than 100 University of California Berkeley workers and students rallied on the steps of Sproul Plaza Wednesday, May 13, to protest the arrest of an undocumented immigrant worker by UC police last month.

“Apparently a woman who was unable to get benefits for her child because she was told his Social Security number showed he was earning too much money to be eligible reported the misuse of his number to that city's PD,” Felde said in an e-mail. “Campus police interviewed the custodian who they say acknowledged using a false Social Security, and he was arrested for false impersonation on April 30. Immigration got involved afterwards; UCPD’s investigation was related to the question of using false stolen identification.”

“We need to stand in solidarity for Jesus Gutierrez,” Arreguin, who was present at the rally, said. “As an alumnus of UC Berkeley I am offended that UC is doing this to a person who is fighting for justice.”

“It’s horrible that the university takes part in the demoralization of workers who maintain the university and without whom this place would not work,” she said. “It’s a harassment on workers’ rights.”

“It’s a violation of his rights as a worker and a resident of a city which is a sanctuary city regardless of his immigration status,” she said. “I think this incident also created a pressure point on why we need a comprehensive immigration reform that will include full labor and human rights protection.”

What douchebag liberals! Cry me an F'ing river.

Because of the guys illegal use of someone elses SS#, which caused her monitary harm.

Throw the criminal back across the boarder. That is a job, an American will do. But are they willing to pay a livable wage??

Wow! Gotta love Berkeley!! Where else can someone commit Identity Theft and use someone else's SSN to get a UNION job and have people protesting and up in arms over the loss of the job due to using a STOLEN identity to get that job??

Now they want a "Sanctuary Campus"? Why not just allow ALL criminals to roam free on the campus? Let's let all the rapists, murderers, and muggers know that Berkeley LOVES Criminals!!!

OK: I will admit that I enjoyed visiting Bezerkley back in 1978-79 due to its funky eateries, bookstores, 'freaks', etc.

That loser town today........I think not. What really tore it for me was the city council/UCB (forgot which) basically ran our military recruiters out not long ago.

I wonder if this guy is going to say he didn't know the number belonged to someone. Hey, it worked for someone else!
