Fac­ulty wants ‘zero-tol­er­ance pol­icy against hate speech’

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Jes­sica Chas­mar

Dozens of fac­ulty mem­bers at Bos­ton Col­lege have signed a let­ter call­ing on ad­min­is­tra­tors to adopt a ze­ro­tol­er­ance pol­icy against “hate speech” re­port­edly in­cited by Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump.

The let­ter, signed by 47 fac­ulty mem­bers at the Je­suit uni­ver­sity, ac­cused Mr. Trump of run­ning a cam­paign “de­signed to pit Amer­i­cans against one another along the lines of race, re­li­gion, eth­nic­ity, and im­mi­grant sta­tus.” It also claimed his cam­paign in­cited “hate crimes” against Mus­lims, peo­ple of color and the LGBTQ com­mu­nity.

Gil Ker­likowske said Wed­nes­day af­ter tour­ing a tem­po­rary hold­ing fa­cil­ity in the Rio Grande Val­ley set up to man­age the in­flux.

The num­ber of ap­pre­hen­sions along the south­west­ern border can be close to 2,000 a day — with most peo­ple turn­ing them­selves in, Com­mis­sioner Ker­likowske said in a phone in­ter­view. The Novem­ber in­flux was as high as what was seen in Oc­to­ber: 46,195, he said.

The pre­cise monthly num­ber is to be an­nounced next week.
