Media Release: Georgetown Law Students Respond To Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Visit

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday attacked American universities for being "politically correct" and infringing on students' free-speech rights.

The debate that Sessions will enter tomorrow has in recent months become a violent one. At Middlebury College in Vermont in March, protests outside the speech of a conservative political scientist devolved into a shoving match that left one professor hospitalized.

He said the agency is filing a "Statement of Interest" in a campus free speech case this week, and plans to file more in the future.

FOX 5's Bob Barnard reports that some students plan to protest the speech by Sessions and some plan on trying to interrupt the speech.

"I think we understand those things without him having to tell us that, " added third-year student Spencer McManus.

"There are those who will say that certain speech isn't deserving of protection. It's the irony of him coming here".

"We are deeply disappointed in Georgetown Law's invitation process to AG Session's free speech talk". He will be met before his Georgetown appearance also with a letter from university law school professors rebuking his remarks, according to Georgetown law professor Heidi Li Feldman.

A group of faculty members said that although they acknowledged Sessions right to speak, he was not the right person for the subject.

"The American university was once the center of academic freedom - a place of robust debate, a forum for the competition of ideas", he said. But Berkeley said that the students had failed to secure the right paperwork for the events, while a number of announced speakers bailed on Yiannopoulos's planned panels or said they had never agreed to come in the first place. Weinberg said that was in line with university policy "given limited capacity".

Sessions said the Department of Justice will do its part and enforce federal law, defend free speech and protect students' free expression.
