    NEW HAVEN >> The worried calls started a day after President Trump’s election. Mayor Toni Harp said they came mostly from immigrant residents. It wasn’t hard to pinpoint their worries: Trump had vowed to deport undocumented immigrants and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Months later, Trump has mostly kept his word, shedding Obama-era deferment policies that once focused on undocumented immigrants with criminal records. However, now undocumented immigrants who have no criminal history are being monitored and deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ... The concerns led the city to partner with other local organizations to create a...

    After years of debate, Yale University announced Saturday it will change the name of a residential college that honors a 19th century alumnus and former U.S. vice president who was an ardent supporter of slavery. Yale trustees said the Ivy League university is renaming Calhoun College after trailblazing computer scientist Grace Murray Hopper, a mathematician who earned Yale degrees in the 1930s, invented a pioneering computer programming language and became a Navy rear admiral. Yale said it was the final decision in a controversy over former Vice President John C. Calhoun’s legacy that had simmered for years and boiled over...

    Sheriff David Clark was scheduled to speak at New Haven University.  He had been invited, and had accepted the invitation.  After the University considered the political ramifications, the person who invited him, Patrick Malloy, came up with a face saving excuse to revoke the invitation.  He said that Sheriff Clark made extravagant demands, such as requiring a "presidential suite" to speak at the event. Sheriff Clark produced emails that showed the arrangements and correspondence. The excuse was false. It compounded the lie with the injustice of smearing Sheriff Clark as being unreasonable and greedy. From the University of New Haven...

    A University of New Haven lecturer behind canceling a campus appearance by Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has come forward to apologize for misrepresenting the popular conservative sheriff. Patrick Malloy, a senior lecturer at the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, issued a statement last week saying he and university officials decided not to finalize the event with Sheriff Clarke because of his political views and extravagant requests for his arrival, which Mr. Malloy admitted he “unintentionally” misrepresented. “I would like to apologize and take responsibility for my actions that have compromised the University of New Haven...

    A Yale University employee is out of a job, and the school is out a window, after he used a broomstick to smash a stained-glass window he complained was racist. Until recently, Thomas Menafee worked as a dishwasher for Yale. But he says he grew enraged that, while working at Yale’s Calhoun College, he had to see a stained glass window which shows black laborers harvesting cotton. The window, he said, was an offensive portrayal of slavery, and so on June 13 he impulsively decided to eliminate it by force. “I took a broomstick, and it was kind of high,...

    David Greco, cofounder and executive director of ARTE Inc., said Wednesday he’s confident police will be able to identify the individual who vandalized one of the organization’s “Heroes & Icons” posters at City Hall earlier this week. The unidentified vandal scrawled the word “asesino,” the Spanish word for “murderer,” in black ink atop the shoulder of the Argentine Marxist-Leninist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Greco said a police report has been filed and City Hall security personnel are reviewing surveillance camera footage. The exhibit, which went up Sept. 22 to honor Hispanic History Month, includes approximately 40 posters depicting Latino historical...

They spoke on condition of anonymity because Kennedy wants to make the announcement. Kennedy is a 52-year-old health care lawyer who lives in Branford, a coastal town outside New Haven, and has been mentioned as a possible political candidate for years. He had said last month he was considering...
