Avoiding abuse by colleges

Universities are reclassifying their majors to get around DHS regulations, for example New York University classifies journalism and drama under a STEM major. STEM is science, technology,engineering and math. This is clearly abusive.


In other instances for example at Berkeley, professors openly stated they would conspire to get around DHS/ICE rules by having one student classrooms for immigrants. Immigration is highly politicized and many colleges and professors think they are part of a 'resistance' which entitles them to break the law. This is not only on principal wrong, it is damaging to our national security. I hope DHS is aware of this type of abuse and some type of monitoring or program should be implemented. Attached is a news article highlighting the abuse.
