Undocumented matriculators

James Joyner at Outside the Beltway wonders why Harvard would rescind the degree it gave to one of the Russian spies who was recently exposed. I agree, he should keep his Harvard sheepskin.

Aren’t we past this kind of prejudice against undocumented matriculators? If someone wants to come to Harvard to improve their lives, I for one don’t want petty rules or vindictive enforcement to get in their way. I support open borders at Harvard!

Besides, he just did the homework that legacies won’t do.
I'm sure selfish Harvard grads will whine about devaluing their degrees, and the destruction of a great university by a flood of border-crossers from UMass-Amherst. But isn't it a palpable violation of human rights, to force a degree from UMass-Amherst on an unwilling graduate?
