Students Say No to Appointment of Homeland Security's Napalitano as UC President

Immigrant Youth, Students, & Workers Protest Napalitano Appointment at UC Regents Meeting
At the UC Regents meeting on July 18 at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus, students and workers protested the appointment of U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napaolitano as the president of the UC education system because of her role in targeting immigrant youth and immigrant workers.

Protesters demanded that the UC Board of Regents reject their appointment of Napalitano to be the chancellor of UC because of her record as secretary of the Homeland Security Department in terrorizing and arresting over 1 million immigrant workers including UC students. Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who was at the meeting, defended the appointment.

In a separate press release, the UC Student-Workers Union, UAW 2865, stated, "Although Napolitano has political and managerial experience, she does not have the academic qualifications, scholarly expertise, or other experience in education that would be appropriate for heading an institution of higher learning. Napolitano’s experience at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) qualifies her to manage a security, law enforcement, or disaster management agency, but not the world’s premier public university system."
