Dismay or Drain?. Or...

See THE: 
https://www.timeshighereducation.com/blog/trumps-immense-power-already-threat-universities

-There are those who believe the U Much statement was stronger than UC's ,-but THE has:

"One of the strongest is that from Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California system and former secretary of homeland security under Barack Obama, along with the system’s individual chancellors. Their statement calls Trump’s order “contrary to the values we hold dear as leaders of the University of California”, adding that it is “critical that the United States continues to welcome the best students, scholars, scientists and engineers of all backgrounds and nationalities”."

Interesting, RT has this headline:
"Safe spaces on campus: University presidents lambast Trump travel ban"

Some other items to note:

San Francisco Magazine ,who previously did a widely read glossy profile of Mark Yudof is now sharing this content on a UC Berkeley alum at:
http://www.modernluxury.com/san-francisco/story/berkeley-breitbart
And excerpt:
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/01/30/mag-alex-marlow-consequential-countercultural-figure-come-uc-berkeley-since-free-speech-movement/

Then see UCB and sanctuary cities policy comes up here as well:
http://www.breitbart.com/milo/2017/01/31/milo-horowitz-start-campaign-sanctuary-campuses/

It would be helpful to have some comment from Mark Yudof's on these items given he says his role is as a self described roving former UC president who visits campuses like UC Davis when they have campus climate issues -see at 45:00 timestamp here- and Yudof is currently UC Berkeley faculty...It might be helpful, illuminating, Lumina-ish?...
He also was highlighted by SF Mag a few years back, too btw

A UC student's plight in:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/wells-fargo-sued-for-barring-daca-recipient-from-student-loans_us_588f9ca2e4b02772c4e850d4?n1iv5a1wlt2zkt9&
Includes:
"The third-year bachelor’s student in gender and sexuality studies at the University of California, Riverside, didn’t think her citizenship status would be a problem. Though she’s undocumented, in 2012 she received work authorization under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. That program shields undocumented immigrants who arrived as youths from deportation and allows them to work legally."

Includes:
"Finally, many university officials are denouncing Trump’s ban as a direct threat to American values.
Nicholas Dirks, the chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley, said “there is a far larger story at play” than the ban’s effect on campus. “Our country itself is at an historic crossroads, in debate not simply over a particular immigration policy, but over the very ideals that define our nation,” Dirks said."
