Activist seeks FBI reforms
utive order giving new FBI guidelines,
FBI activity has resembled former
Bureau Chief J. Edgar Hoover's
operation, when the bureau had more
than 100,000 people under surveil
lance under the guise of national
security, he said.
"National security is it, Wilkinson
said. "And (people's constitutional)
rights are nothing next to it.
For example, a now-classified
executive order allows the FBI to
identify politically undesirable Arab
and Iranian college students and
deport them to their home countries
although they have not broken the
law, he said. Of 140,000 foreign
students last year, more than 3,500
students were found undesirable,
"From the beginning of Reagan's
administration, he has kept (from the
American public) what he doesnt
want us to (know about)," Wilkinson

The United States is moving
toward a closed government in which
national security overrides the con
stitutional rights of its citizens, Frank
Wilkinson, founder of the National
Committee Against Repressive Leg
islation, told about 25 people in
Manning Hall Wednesday.
Wilkinson, 74, whose visit to UNC
was sponsored by the Carolina
Committee on Central America,
spoke about U.S. involvement in
Central America. He is traveling
across the country to gather support
for his petition for FBI reforms.
Wilkinson served as NCARLs
national director from 1960 to 1980
and now does volunteer work. The
committee is dedicated to preserving
Wilkinson was banned from the
UNC campus 25 years ago because
he served one year in prison for
refusing to discuss political affilia
tions with , members of the House
Committee on Un-American Activ
ities in 1958. He said the federal
government has become more secre

The Reagan administration has
cited old laws to deny visas to certain
foreigners . who wish to enter the
country and has banned Canadian
films about acid rain both on the
grounds that they could threaten
national security, he said.
"We need to be mindful of these
things when we think about what
Reagan is doing now," he said. "I'm
only reflecting on (Hoover's tenure
as FBI chief) to show what is begin
ning to happen in Central America."
He said the Reagan administration
allowed the deportation of El Salva
dorans from the United States in an
effort to establish favorable relations
with the Salvadoran National Guard.
He said he would not speculate about
the fate of the deported El Salva-'
dorans. The National Guard has been
linked to the Salvadoran Death
Squad, which is responsible for
killing several Americans and polit
ically dissident El Salvadorans.
Wilkinson said he discovered
through a 1975 Senate report that the
FBI had trailed him for 45 years at
an estimated cost of $17 million.
Law professor decries Supreme Court nomination
Cy SHEILA SIMMONS
Judge Robert Bork's stand on
racial issues proves that his nomina
tion to the U.S. Supreme Court
would be a calamity, a UNC law
professor told a group of students at
a Young Democrats meeting Tuesday
Daniel Pollitt, a Graham Kenan
professor of law, not only expressed
his opposition to Bork's nomination
before the Young Democrats but also
sent 15 of his students to Washington,
D.C to present Sen. Terry Sanford,
D-N.C, with two notebooks contain
ing information on why Bork should
not be a Supreme Court justice.
ttHe has said repeatedly that no one
can change the court's decisions but
the court itself," Pollitt said.
Bork's appointment could be
enough to reverse some of the
decisions that allowed minorities
equal rights and women the right to
free choice, Pollitt said.
Since the court's decisions to
legalize abortion and to force dese
gregation were both passed. by one
concurring vote, Bork could have the
power to reverse such decisions, he
"We could be back to the back
alley abortions," Pollitt said.
Bork also testified against the bill
that outlawed segregation in public
places and spoke out against the bill
which mandated busing to desegre
gate black and white schools, Pollitt
Students in Pollitt's civil rights
seminar traveled to Washington last
Tuesday, Sept. 15, to present Sanford
with a notebook containing papers
the students had prepared on Bork's
positions on various issues, including
abortion and birth control.
They also presented the senator
with a second notebook consisting of
writings and interviews by Bork and
position statements made against him
by such groups as People for the
American Way and the American
Civil Liberties Union.
After presenting the notebooks to
Sanford, the students answered his
questions for about an hour. Some
students remained in Washington to
attend the Senate Judiciary Commit
A press secretary for Sanford said
last week that the senator was still
undecided on whether to support or
oppose the nomination.
