A half century ago, when there was a war on the other side of the world, American college students marched across campuses and chanted, "Hey hey, ho ho, LBJ has got to go!"

On Wednesday afternoon, more than 1,000 Rutgers students marched peacefully through the New Brunswick campus and shouted the 2016 version of the chant, "Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go!"

Like students on campuses across the country, Rutgers students rallied in Voorhees Mall against the election of Donald Trump and asked university President Robert Barchi to declare the university as a "sanctuary campus" where undocumented students would be protected from the fear of being deported.


Seth Kaper-Dale, minister of the Reformed Church of Highland Park, also encouraged the students to stay involved.

"March peacefully," said Kaper-Dale, who has declared his candidacy for governor on the Green Party ticket. "But march angrily, too."

"It is thankful to see Rutgers University students take a stand," he added.
