Gregg Gonsalves, an assistant professor of Epidemiology and associate professor of law at Yale, has written numerous social media posts attacking the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) and supporting illegal immigration.

“[ICE is] raiding restaurants, setting up roadblocks in New England, getting on buses to check for foreigners,” Gonsalves tweeted in late June. “We’ve unleashed something evil in the United States. Let the pundits debate who’s winning the day as immigrants get rounded up. The rest of us have to fight.”

“[W]e hide immigrants from ICE if we have to,” Gonsalves wrote in a subsequent tweet, prompting Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Lawrence Jones to ask whether he intended to suggest aiding and abetting criminals.

Campus Reform chronicles the twitter exchange, one from Lawrence Jones claiming this was “aiding and abetting” which prompted Gonsalves to counter: “It’s called civil disobedience,” he then blocked Jones’ Twitter account.

“Aiding and abetting is about facilitating crime,” he added, asserting that “here the moral crime is against immigrant children and families, women, and workers.”

Gonsalves has also endorsed violating the privacy of ICE agents and immigration officials, calling for their addresses to be released to the public.

When one Twitter user asked if “anyone already made a map of all the detention centers, ICE offices, locations of companies supplying them,” Gonsalves suggested that the “home addresses of major ICE officials” should be released.

“I’m such a bad person,” Gonsalves wrote. “I have no qualms about showing up at ICE regional directors’ homes. They can leave their jobs at the office and feel free from scrutiny at home. Lucky them.”

Gonsalves clarified that releasing the information would be “a last resort” after another user warned that “this could cause collateral damage.”

Gonsalves blasted President Trump on Wednesday, calling the commander-in-chief a “sociopath” who is living in an “out of control, chaotic, and compromised” White House with his “accomplices.”

ICE spokesperson Liz Johnson provided the following statement to Campus Reform:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) fully respects the Constitutional rights of all people to peacefully express their opinions. That being said, ICE remains committed to performing its immigration enforcement mission consistent with federal law and agency policy. People can disagree on policy, but it is unconscionable to target our employees and advocate violence against federal law enforcement officers, who put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe.”

Gonsalves called on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to add Campus Reform to its list list of “hate” groups.
