College president’s green card comment goes awry, he later expresses confusion over why

November 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

The audience gasped as Las Positas College’s interim president spoke on November 3. Guy Lease remarked that he hoped green cards of international students were being checked as they were being hired to work in the campus cafe. “There was stunned silence in the room,” said Philip Manwell, Dean of Art & Communications. Lease made the comment while reading nominations for a campus award. “It just kind of came out as I was reading that,” Lease said later. “Nobody’s even told me specifically what they think was inappropriate about the remark.”
