Tampa, Fl - On September 10, students at the University of South Florida (USF) participated in a national day of action that was called by National Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) to speak out against the Trump administrations attacks on undocumented immigrants. The event was hosted by Tampa Bay Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Over 30 students and staff attended.
During President Donald Trumps tenure, his administration has engaged in escalating attacks against undocumented immigrants. Some of these attacks include Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detaining undocumented children in horrid camp conditions indefinitely, and building urban warfare training facilities meant to replicate the conditions of the U.S. Southwest.
Many of these occurrences were addressed in speeches given by SDS members. They also addressed how these attacks on immigrants can be seen on campus and how to fight back against them through their Immigrants are Here to Stay campaign.
We want USF administration to agree to be non-compliant with agencies, such as Customs and Border Protection and ICE, that seek to detain and deport undocumented immigrants. We encourage students to unite with us to protect our fellow immigrant students, said SDS member, Ilena Scapicchio.
Although a small group of students that support these racist attacks on immigrants tried to halt and distract others from the event, SDS members and attendees chanted, No Trump, no wall, legalization for all, against them. The Trump supporters were ultimately silenced.

10 students, some staff and teachers. Hardly worth mentioning. USF is a BIG university.
It’s like when a protest in New York city numbers 30. Wow! You got together 30 people in a city of 8 million?
I thought they were IN the US and US laws apply to them also.
I demand the students be expelled
My son attends this University. It is no different from many others. He got into an argument with a professor in one one of his mandatory classes for his major. The professor went on a anti-America, anti-Military rant and my son just couldn’t sit there and take it.
He stood up in the class and went off on the professor. The professor immediately went Full Back to School on my son and informed him that there was nothing he could ever do to get a passing grade in this professors class.
So, he dropped the class. Was set back in his graduation date and, had to pay for the class and then pay to attend a like class the next semester with a different professor.
Liberal professors spawn some liberal pupils. The awakening for these snowflakes will be devastating.
“Over 30 students and staff attended.”
Students barely out of high school have no business deciding who when or where anyone is allowed ....they need to stay in their lane.
These twerps are nothing more than a strain and drain on the taxpayers. Their parents probably never had any control or for that matter given any respect in their homes. You reap what you sow.
Oh, OK, just forfeit all federal grants and we are even.
Not 30, over 30! Must have been a real event. All the important people were there.
Wow, 10 out of 50,000 USF students and 20 out of 16,000 USF academic employees attended the event. I wonder how many hundreds of USF people ate at the new Chick-fil-A in the student center? “Eat mor chikin” and MAGA!
the Trump administrations attacks on undocumented immigrants.
Arresting illegal aliens for immigration law violations is not an attack.
It is protecting the American citizens and upholding the rule of law.
The essence of liberalism! They crave the authority so they can threaten any opposition to their self-righteous world view. Cowards!
BTW, Go Bulls!
I demand that all law enforcement be removed from campus ....:o)
