California College holds 'UndocuGraduation' for illegal immigrant students

Segregated graduations will include an ‘UndocuGraduation,’ ‘Lavender Graduation,’ and ‘Latine Graduation.’

This follows a larger trend of colleges and universities holding segregated graduations.

A community college in Pasadena, California, will host five identity-based graduations at the end of May and beginning of June. 

Pasadena City College will celebrate an “UndocuGraduation,” “Lavender Graduation,” “Black Graduation,” “Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Graduation,” and “Latine Graduation.”

“UndocuGraduation” will take place May 29 in honor of illegal alien students. The school states that “Undocugraduation celebrates our undocumented students’ educational success at Pasadena City College,” and adds that “[p]articipants are strongly encouraged to apply to the DREAM Scholarship: Ready Behind Degrees.”

Pasadena City College is not the only school to hold such a graduation, with Rutgers-Newark having held a similar ceremony for illegal immigrant students on Thursday, and California State University, Northridge having hosted an “Undocu-Graduation” before as well. 

Pasadena City will also host a “Lavender Graduation” for LGBT-identifying students on May 30. 

Other segregated graduations are a “Black Graduation” on May 31, an “Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Graduation Celebration” on June 6, and a “Latine Graduation” on June 7.
