After President Donald Trump’s first try at restricting immigration, Lake County College President Jerry Weber sent out the following email:
In light of the recent immigration ban signed by President Trump late last month, and the temporary restraining order issued Feb. 3, I want to assure you that CLC is inclusive and values and respects the diverse opinions of all students, faculty and staff. Our core values of equity and inclusion have not changed.
Student Life has joined the national campaign, #YouAreWelcomeHere, and there will be additional reminders communicated about the list of safe spaces on CLC’s campus that can support you or give you resources. Should you feel very concerned about the possible impacts, remember that you can always talk to CLC counselors.
Please know: you matter to us and we celebrate you.
Jerry Weber Ph.D., President, College of Lake County
The recipient of the email said it was the first to have been sent from the President for 5 or 6 years.
How the student, who attended the Saturday Trump rally in Woodstock, characterizes the campus:
CLC “is a cesspool of opinionated leftist politics.”
