A supposed artwork project at a university is receiving scrutiny and mockery for its controversial purpose.
The art project at Tufts University called “ICE Escape Signs” mimics fire escape signs and depicts exit routes to evade ICE agents, Campus Reform reports.
Despite a record number of deportations during the Obama administration, ICE is currently the Left’s hated boogeyman due to President Trump.
Yet the federal agency is more likely to target felony criminals and gang members than college students.
A spokesman for ICE, in fact, told Campus Reform that “sensitive locations” such as schools and churches are avoided by the federal agency.
Project 21 spokesman Derrick Hollie says the art project is really promoting breaking the law.
"It's actually aiding and abetting,” he warns. “When you look up federal code 18 section 13-24, it actually defines 'aiding and abetting', and this is what they're promoting even though it's art."
Tufts is an exclusive and expensive university, with annual tuition, room and board topping $75,000, so Hollie says there is a “slim” chance that an illegal alien, fearing deportation, is walking the campus.
The artwork amounts to nothing more than “virtue signaling” by a liberal university, a spokesman for Federation for American Immigration Reform told Campus Reform.
