Abbott says he'll cut funding to state universities that declare themselves sanctuary campuses

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday he will cut state funding to any Texas public university that declares itself a sanctuary campus.

Abbott issued the statement on Twitter following news that students from across the state are petitioning school administrators to declare state universities sanctuary campuses for undocumented immigrants.

Petitions released Monday from students at the University of North Texas and Texas Woman's University demanded school administrators follow the model of sanctuary cities like Los Angeles and Chicago, which prevent police from enforcing immigration laws and cooperating with federal immigration officials.

The petitions also demand administrators guarantee the privacy of students and staff regarding their immigration status, forbid federal immigration officials from entering campus property without a warrant and promote services specifically for minorities and other marginalized groups on campus.
