Protests planned as Sean Spicer set to speak at Northeastern Illinois University this week
A group of Northeastern Illinois University students, faculty and alumni are planning to protest after the school’s president rejected a request to reconsider having former White House press secretary Sean Spicer take part in a panel discussion about presidential elections on campus Thursday.
But the discussion between Spicer and Fox News contributor and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, will go on as planned, according to university spokesman Michael Hines. It’s scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the university’s main auditorium, 3701 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., according to a release.
The letter to university President Gloria Gibson says “It would be an affront to humanity to host Spicer at NEIU.”
It goes on to say Spicer is not an acceptable choice for a university that in 2018 had an undergraduate enrollment that was nearly 40% Hispanic and considers itself a safe space for the undocumented immigrants enrolled there.
“We find it particularly distressful that our university administration would ignore its claims to being an Hispanic-serving institution that ‘stands in solidarity with undocumented immigrants’ by providing Spicer this platform, and that it would do so in an attempt to raise the profile of this institution,” a news release on the planned protest states.
