This week host Gary Larson and regular panelists David Damore and Elizabeth Thompson discuss the petition to classify UNLV as a sanctuary campus. The petition, which contains over 1,000 signatures from students and faculty, was given to University President Len Jessup in the hopes of making UNLV a safe-haven for students who are in the country illegally. The panel also recaps the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents meeting where UNLV was blasted for exceeding the Presidential Debate budget by nearly $3 million dollars. The conversation concludes with a discussion of the latest controversy surrounding the establishment of Education Savings Accounts.
