Faculty wants ‘zero-tolerance policy against hate speech’
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.
