Judge orders Auburn to let white nationalist Spencer speak

White supremacist Richard Spencer still plans to speak at Auburn University

White supremacist Richard Spencer still plans to speak at Auburn University

The mere promise of divisive speakers like Spencer has previously ignited violent riots.

Spencer supporters and protesters faced off in spirited debate on the AU campus before the 7 p.m. event. Outside, three people were arrested for fighting. Auburn requested and received assistance from the Montgomery Police Department and Alabama State Troopers.

After President Donald Trump's election victory last November, Spencer addressed a gathering of the alt-right movement at which he shouted "Hail Trump!" and audience members apparently gave Nazi salutes.

He said his Auburn appearance was sponsored by AltRight.com, a white nationalist site.

Trump Directs Review of H-1B Visas
However, as per studies, 80 for every penny of the endorsed applications were for the two least wage levels permitted. Trump's directive will also require reforms of the H-1B visa program to limit bypassing skilled American workers.

Spencer replied as follows: "Yes, Jesus was not European, but I will say that this belief system that you embrace is truly a product of centuries of European Christianity". When he said that it was "truly sick" that Auburn would bring in people who were "not the greatest exemplars of the African race", who would sexually abuse the white women on campus, someone in the crowd screamed back that "white men rape, too".

The lawyer who fought for Spencer to be allowed to speak is quoted as saying "diversity is not a strength".

As the law enforcement agency for Auburn University, the Auburn Police Division headed security efforts surrounding Spencer's talk on campus at James E. Foy Hall.

None of the three were students at Auburn University or affiliated with the University in any way.

Kim's desire for peace 'deciding factor' in US-North Korea relations
Reports say that Sinpo is not only a testing and launch field for missiles but also a port for North Korea's submarine activities. Pence's visit, full of Cold War symbolism, came amid increasing tensions and heated rhetoric on the Korean Peninsula.

U.S. District Judge Keith Watkin allowed the appeal on Tuesday and ordered Auburn to let Spencer speak. The judge also said there was no evidence that Spencer advocated violence.

Auburn University supports the rights and privileges afforded by the First Amendment.

He vowed to show up anyway and the Judges ruling made way for Spencer's appearance Tuesday night. "It is now more important than ever that we respond in a way that is peaceful, respectful, and maintains civil discourse".

Several student protests were planned on campus for Tuesday evening. The pair only got in about two punches before police took them to the ground and restrained them using plastic restraints.

Facebook murder suspect remains at large as police ask public for help
Before the start of Facebook's annual F8 developers conference, CEO Zuckerberg said: "We have a lot more to do here". The McDonald's employee called police as Stephens proceeded down the drive-thru, DuCharme said .
