Should they even be allowed their degrees?? YOU DECIDE.
WeStaNDFor organized the walkout, a left-wing student group who began planning the protest after Pence, since he was announced in March.
During the speech at the Catholic university, Pence discussed the importance of religious freedom, lauding Donald Trump’s recent executive order protecting religious liberties and freedom of speech.
Earlier this month, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was loudly booed as students turned their backs while she gave the commencement speech at Bethune-Cookman University.
The university’s administrator supported the move and said good things about Pence for his public service to Indiana and his new role as vice president.
“As vice president, Mike Pence has been a voice of balance, reason, and continuity,” the administrator said. “He has played a critical role in shaping the domestic agenda and traveled the globe to reassure allies and show to foes his steady resolve. Even those who disagree with Mike Pence recognize him as a man of principle.”
We’ll see if there’s a petition for these kids to be stripped of their degrees. Since they were recorded on camera walking out anyway.
