U. Arizona Students to be Charged After Disrupting Border Patrol Event With Shouts of “Murder Patrol”
“charging two students with interference with the peaceful conduct of an educational institution”
Last week, two border patrol agents were speaking to a small group of students at the University of Arizona when the event was interrupted by a student calling them the KKK and “murder patrol.” She was eventually joined by other students, and now they’re facing charges.
Dave Huber of the College Fix describes the scene:
VIDEO: Protesting students confront Border Patrol speakers at U. Arizona
Early last week a pair of Border Patrol employees speaking to a campus club at the University of Arizona faced an impromptu demonstration led, naturally, by a “studies” major.
Mexican-American studies major “Denisse” saw the BP personnel addressing the Criminal Justice Organization and began questioning their presence, interrupting their talk. She was miffed at a story of a family that had been detained by the BP just four miles from campus.
It appears Denisse had taken video of her confronting not just the Border Patrol agents, but disrupting the Criminal Justice Organization discussion to make her displeasure known. In the first clip, she refers to the BP as the “Murder Patrol” and complains the university permits “murderers” on campus, a place for which she’s paid to study at…
A second video shows Denisse following behind the now-departing agents shouting “Murder Patrol! Murder Patrol!” where she’s eventually joined by others. At the end of the segment, a crowd of protesters are shown shouting “Police! And ICE! The same shit twice!”
You can watch both videos below, strong language warning for both. The stupidity on display here is so outrageous.
WATCH: Far-left protesters at the University of Arizona protest Border Patrol agents on campus by likening them to the KKK and calling them the Murder Patrol repeatedly.

They follow them on their way out of the school continuing to yell Murder Patrol. Additionally, they meet up with a large group of far-left protesters chanting “Police and ICE same shit twice.”

The school says it remains committed to free speech but not disruption, and that’s why there will be charges.
KVOA News reports:
2 UA students will face charges for incident with Border Patrol Agents
The University of Arizona Police Department will be charging two students with interference with the peaceful conduct of an educational institution, after an incident with U.S. Border Patrol Agents on campus.
In a letter sent to The University of Arizona campus community on March 29, President Robert C. Robbins said the UA Police Department will continue to investigate this incident for additional criminal violations. The Dean of Students is also reviewing potential violations of the student code of conduct and there will also be a probe into actions involving UA employees, according to Robbins.
As News 4 Tucson previously reported, the confrontation that sparked the UAPD investigation happened on March 20 at a career fair at the University of Arizona. In one video posted to social media, one student is heard shouting, “murder patrol” while agents are talking to a group of criminal justice students. Another video shows the student following the agents out of the classroom and to their car.
Here’s a video report:

I remember when I used to be proud to have graduated from the University of Arizona. This is worse than failing to get into the NCAA March Madness this year.
No, it is NOT worse than not getting into a ballgame tournament. Get a grip on it. Where do you stand on fraud by these entertainers (not real people who produce value) and their off spring?
The thing too many forget about freedom is that yours ends where mine begins.
Yes, you have a right to say what you want – but you have no right to disrupt my right to say what I want.
Yes, you have a right to believe what you want – but you have no right to chop my head off because I happen to believe something else.
If we all must believe the same thing or subject our freedoms to the loudest voice we have lost the very thing that our nation is founded on.
The people in question have no interest in freedom.
They should have this imbecile write on a blackboard 1,000 times, “I will not violate the rights of others by acting like a sanctimonious, nasty, authoritarian.”
“The school says it remains committed to free speech but not disruption, and that’s why there will be charges.”
Expulsion from the university should be on the table.
Sorry to shout but WHY DOESN’T THIS HAPPEN EVERYWHERE???
Subheadline: Arizona student learns valuable lesson.
Probably the only lesson they’ve learned in public schools.
Who left the bag of idiots open?
I don’t think any of us know enough about this incident to properly judge it. But, I will always err on the side of protecting my constitution and free speech. The person in question should be taught to be more respectful. But legal charges seem a bit too far. An apology and both parties have to sit down and listen to one another for and hour more or less. Maybe they will learn something.
I respectfully disagree.
The person in question should HAVE ALREADY beEN taught to be more respectful. But it goes beyond that. She wasn’t just disrespectful, she violated their rights. She declared that she had more rights than they did. Legal sanctions for that behavior are appropriate.
Would you prefer a mild beating?
Yet another person who doesn’t understand why one person’s rights end where another’s begin.
You have the right to speech, not to silence the speech of others, especially when it isn’t your venue.
She should be glad that I have no input on the resolution here. She would be looking for a new college campus immediately as she would be banned at U of A.
What kind of charges will these students face?
Will they be suspended, or given a stern lecture by the Dean?
As Tony Soprano once stated, “Those who want respect, give respect.”
These infantile, vainglorious, self-congratulatory Leftist jackboots are utterly incapable of engaging in a civil and respectful manner with the targets of their ire, therefore, they deserve to be treated as belligerent, goose-stepping thugs.
