David Gelernter of Yale is very wrong about Trump - 10/22/18

David Gelernter - a computer science professor at Yale University - blogs "The Real Reason They Hate Trump" at the Wall Street Journal [1]. He decries Trump's vulgarity and so on, but says leftists hate Trump because he's a caricature of the average American. Leaving that angle aside, parts of this are patently absurd:

Michael Wishnie compares immigration laws to Jim Crow laws (Yale professor) - 10/15/09

Michael Wishnie is a law professor at Yale University who was involved in various aspects of New Haven's program to give city ID cards to illegal aliens; he was a colleague of former Yale Law Dean Harold Koh. A couple days ago Wishnie gave a talk (www1.wnec.edu/news/index.cfm?selection=doc.2507&DCIid=13069) where he made the following shocking comments: "The Obama Administration seems to prefer increased enforcement even over the record levels of the Bush Administration.

Nina Bernstein of the New York Times (a paper part-owned by a Mexican billionaire) offers "Despite Vow, Target of Immigrant Raids Shifted" (link). In a way, it's a two part story. In the first part, there's the story itself, with the not-so-news news is that the targets of fugitive raids by the Department of Homeland Security shifted from dangerous criminals into whatever illegal aliens they found, including those who had not been convicted of crimes.

Should Harold Koh continue as Yale Law School Dean? - 07/29/07

If a law school dean - especially the dean of the Yale Law School - supports widespread illegal activity and public corruption, should they continue in their present role? Consider the following statements [1] from Harold Koh regarding the ID cards that New Haven, Connecticut is distributing to their residents (including illegal aliens): "If you look on the coin, it says 'E Pluribus Unum' - so they're right on the money!" said Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh... before snapping a photo for his city ID. The Yale Law School, through professors Bob Solomon and Mike Wishnie and the Yale law...
