Email from Dr. Fitzpatrick, WCCEA President to WCC President Bellanca

Sent: Saturday, January 28, 2017 4:28 PM

President Bellanca,

President Trump’s actions this past week regarding Mexico and toward immigrants from NW Africa and SW Asia have caused great consternation within our nation and within the community of students and scholars who are not citizens.

Today the University of Michigan issued a statement of support for its international community, one that made clear that it would continue to adhere to its policies of non-discrimination.  It can be found at:  http://president.umich.edu/news-communications/on-the-agenda/protecting-the-interests-of-our-international-community-of-scholars/

I urge in the strongest terms that Washtenaw Community College adopt a similar statement.  Please let us be among the leaders in saying that we will not tolerate this intolerance.

Thank You
Dr. David J. Fitzpatrick
President
Washtenaw Community College Education Association

UPDATE: President Bellanca responded to Dr. Fitzpatrick  on Sunday morning (11am) stating that an official statement will be released on Monday.
