100% Fed Up: VP Mike Pence gave the commencement address at Notre Dame today. The left just had to protest…
As Vice President Mike Pence began his remarks at Notre Dame’s commencement ceremony Sunday, dozens of graduates walked out in protest of the Trump administration’s policies.
More than 100 students participated in the planned protest, which was aimed at showing the student’s discontent with the Trump administration’s policies on LGBT rights and people of color, the student group We StaND wrote in a statement ahead of the ceremony.
Notre Dame, a predominately Catholic university, is located in South Bend, Ind. — the state where Pence served as governor prior to becoming vice president.
The gripe on Pence is old news but the left had to protest anyway:
“During his time as governor of the state of Indiana and now as Vice-President, Pence has targeted the civil rights protections of members of the LGBT community, rejected the Syrian refugee resettlement program, supported an unconstitutional ban of religious minorities, and fought against sanctuary cities,” the students wrote in a statement. “All of these policies have marginalized our vulnerable sisters and brothers for their religion, skin color, or sexual orientation.”
