This is actually an excellent point. I’m surprised it took someone so long to make it.

Professor: ‘Illegals at border have more rights than college students accused of rape’

Those who illegally cross into the United States have more rights than a college student accused of rape, according to a George Washington University (GWU) law professor.

John Banzhaf, a public interest law professor at GWU, is calling attention to disparity within America’s judicial system after finding “dozens” of cases in which colleges forgo due process when handling students accused of sexual assault while those crossing into the United States illegally are still granted an impartial hearing.

“Many colleges have not been very vigorous with combating date rape and if it’s not treated properly, the women complain,” Banzhaf said in an interview with Campus Reform. “One way to dramatize that is with the current debate over border regulation.”

Banzhaf, who helped get all charges dropped against three Duke lacrosse players in a highly contested and bitter case, claims that he first spotted what he calls a “trend” of students successfully suing their universities for improperly finding them guilty of date rape.

“With date rape, [college judiciary committees] particularly try to find out what exactly happened in that room,” Banzhaf told Campus Reform. “The need seems to be much greater [for that] in the case of date rape for protection.”

Banzhaf claims that colleges have abandoned that “very high standard of proof, particularly in cases of date rape,” despite the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the Constitution requires due process protections.

“Rape is a crime and colleges shouldn’t be involved at all,” he said. “There are more and more individual cases where students are found guilty and suffered consequences are winning these cases [when they sue their school.]”
