Students at Brown University have joined campuses across the country to demand students and employees be protected against immigration proceedings following the election of Republican Donald Trump as president.
Hundreds of students walked out of their classrooms and activities at the Providence campus Wednesday afternoon.
Students at dozens of colleges are calling for their colleges to become havens for people who may face deportation. Trump has vowed to deport millions of people who are in the U.S. illegally.
At Brown, many students wore black clothes and carried signs saying "no human is illegal" and "#SanctuaryCampus."
Organizers say students are showing solidarity for the sanctuary campus movement and calling on Brown to protect students, their families and staff members from immigration proceedings and to protect minority students.
