Philadelphia - President-elect Donald Trump’s alma mater has renewed its pledge to block federal agents without a warrant from removing students in the country illegally.

University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann released a letter Wednesday that echoes sanctuary policies in place at a growing number of U.S. universities.

Gutmann says immigrant students add to Penn’s richness and diversity.

She says her staff “will do all that we can to ensure their continued safety and success” at the Ivy League school in Philadelphia.

During his campaign, Trump pledged to launch a “deportation force” and end the practice of granting temporary status to students in the U.S. illegally.

Their status would vary by state if the Republican abolishes the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Trump and three of his children are Penn graduates.
