Protesters at U. Arizona Crash Board of Regents Meeting and Issue Demands

“protesters wore tape over their mouths and held placards stating “We Will Not Be Silenced”

Just once, wouldn’t you like to see a school respond to this type of behavior by expelling everyone involved?

The College Fix reports:

U. Arizona protesters crash Board of Regents meeting, make demands

Demonstrators at the University of Arizona protested before an Arizona Board of Regents meeting on Friday, then stayed for the official gathering while three UA students addressed the board with their “outrage and […] demands.”

That outrage is due to a trio of UA students facing criminal charges for actions against a pair of Border Patrol officials a few weeks ago. The BP agents were interrupted during a presentation to a campus group by one student, Denisse Moreno Melchor, who persistently yelled “Murder Patrol!” at them, as well as making racist comments towards a student who threatened to call the police.

Moreno followed the BP agents throughout the building and after their exit.

Dubbed the “Coalition for the Arizona 3,” the protesters wore tape over their mouths and held placards stating “We Will Not Be Silenced.” Coalition member Fernando Najera, a DACA recipient, told The Daily Wildcat that the group’s main platform is to “ban Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection agents from campus.”

“Along this region, Border Patrol have been terrorizing native people, terrorizing black and brown bodies. It is enough, right?” Najera asked those assembled.

At the start of the Board of Regents meeting, the Coalition remained seated for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Comments

Yes, I would like to see expulsions for these our of control students. Do it a couple of times at a could of schools and this rowdy behavior would quickly stop. These people think they can do this because it is fun and there are no consequences. It is time for consequences.

Yes, a Real World Lesson™ is in order. “Actions have consequences, who knew?”
