I use the word ‘protest’ lightly, because what these students did was so obnoxious. They’re very lucky the charges were dropped.

The College Fix reports:

Criminal charges dropped against U. Arizona Border Patrol-protesting students

In a move that will please civil libertarians and free speech advocates such as the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, criminal charges have been vacated against a trio of University of Arizona students who protested the presence on campus of US Border Patrol agents.

The students, including Denisse Moreno Melchor who filmed her confrontation with the agents, garnered support from students at Arizona State University and the U. Arizona group Professors of Color, which was more upset at “far-right” media coverage of the issue.

Moreno Melchor, Mariel Alexandra Bustamante, and Marianna Ariel Coles-Curtis still may face university sanctions, according to azcentral.com.

From the story:

The Pima County Justice Court website shows court hearings set for this week for all three students were vacated after motions to dismiss criminal charges were granted Friday.

The website also lists the charges against all three students as “not referred for prosecution.”
