not comply with nor be placed under the supervision of the federal immigration agencies and

authorization; and end surveillance of student, staff, and community activists on campus;

use of E-Verify;

12. AGGRESSIVE ENFORCEMENT: Aggressively enforce policies prohibiting hate and discrimination

their union, participate in their union, or have their employer deduct union dues on their behalf;
and,
15. DEMAND A SANCTUARY CITY AND STATE: Call upon Mayor Garcetti and Los Angeles City Hall to
immediately enact legislation extending sanctuary demands citywide; call upon Governor Jerry
Brown and the California State Legislature to immediately enact legislation extending these
sanctuary demands statewide; file amicus briefs against anti-immigration laws or discriminatory
executive orders.

While we are encouraged by the initial step that the UC has taken in this direction in releasing
principles in support of undocumented members of the UC Community, these principles fail to include
certain basic provisions within the Universitys purview to protect us and our communities. Major
shortcomings include, but are not limited to, the fact that these principles fail to:

Explicitly commit to protect privacy of UC workers' immigration status or related information;


Commit to not use E-Verify;
Refuse to take adverse action, or request work authorization re-verification, in response to SSA
"no match" letters or related communications;
Direct campus police to refuse ICE transfer or notification requests, in addition to holds;
Refuse to let ICE interview individuals in campus police custody;
Refuse ICE physical access to property owned or controlled by the University;
Include all migrants, regardless of criminal convictions;
Commit to protect and expand legal and counseling services for the undocumented community;
Initiate constant and consistent outreach to the undocumented community, and actively involve
and engage them in these conversations;
Explicitly include the LBNL and all other parts of the UC System;
Commit to maintain all protections irrespective of threats to federal funding; and
Provide transparency regarding the timeline and process for drafting and negotiating campus
and medical center policies.
