A viral video clip shows a female student at the University of Virginia complaining that there are “too many white people” in the campus’ “Multicultural Student Center” and encouraging the white students to leave the area.

“Public service announcement! Excuse me!” the female in the video starts. “If ya’ll didn’t know, this is the MSC (Multicultural Student Center) and frankly there’s [sic] just too many white people in here and this is a space for people of color,” she said.

“So just be really cognizant of the space that you’re taking up because it does make some of us POCs (people of color) uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here.”

“It’s only been open for four days,” she said of the MSC, “and frankly there’s the whole university for a lot of ya’ll to be at. And there’s very few spaces for us to be at.”

“So keep that in mind. Thank you,” the student concluded, receiving applause.

The clip was posted to social media Wednesday by conservative group Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and quickly went viral, racking up millions of views.

According to The Cavalier Daily, the University of Virginia’s student newspaper, the female in the video is a student at UVA. She declined to comment on the paper’s report.

YAF said the original video has been deleted, and noted that they obtained the clip from a Twitter account with the handle @WafaFlafa_Flame, The Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.

“Leftists at the University of Virginia are dictating who is and who isn’t allowed in the new Multicultural Student Center,” YAF captioned the video. “This kind of racist intolerance is NOT multicultural.”

Despite the overwhelming backlash online, “several other students tweeted in solidarity with the student in the video, saying that white people did not frequently visit the MSC when it was located in the basement of Newcomb Hall,” The Cavalier Daily noted.

Following the blowback, Brian Coy, a spokesman for the university, told the Examiner, “I believe deeply that we need to build a community that is not just diverse, but also inclusive.”

The University of Virginia also released a statement on Twitter: “UVA this month introduced four new and expanded student centers in Newcomb Hall. Since the opening, some questions have been raised regarding the scope or inclusivity of these centers and their missions.”

“In order to foster the diversity of experience and ideas that make UVA a great and good place to study and work, these centers are open to all members of the University community,” a statement from UVA said. “They complement existing student-focused spaces such as the 1515 Building on the Corner, opened in March 2017, and Ern Commons in the Alderman Road residential area, opened in March 2012.”

Discussions, designated areas, and other efforts centered around racial “diversity” and “inclusion” on college campuses have increasingly dumped out results anathema to the cause.

For example, as noted by The Daily Wire in January, Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota held an event, allegedly to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, “‘for White people only’ that sought to force them to ‘recognize and acknowledge that there is a nasty little racist inside them, and to do so without becoming angry or defensive and describe the skills of psychological flexibility that they must develop in order to make authentic choices in defiance of their racist tendencies.’”

On Tuesday, First lady Melania Trump gave a speech to students in Baltimore, Maryland, concerning the youth opioid abuse epidemic The reaction to Mrs. Trump was mixed, as the First Lady was met with booing from some of the students.

“As the press pooler with perhaps the most FLOTUS event coverage under my belt,” explained CNN reporter Kate Bennett, “I cannot recall another event where she was more negatively received. I believe it is also the first loud booing by an audience at a solo event with Mrs. Trump.”

Responding to the boos hurled at her, Mrs. Trump issued a statement soon after the event.

“We live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinion,” the statement from the First Lady said, according to The Washington Examiner, “but the fact is we have a serious crisis in our country, and I remain committed to educating children on the dangers and deadly consequences of drug abuse.”

Fox News’ “The Five” co-host Juan Williams, an outspoken Democrat, called Mrs. Trump’s response “graceful.”

“I think that’s the way to handle it. I don’t think that she was going to fire back,” Williams said, according to Fox News. “Remember, we’re talking about mostly kids. It wasn’t adults.”

Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones, a conservative, applauded Mrs. Trump for “staying on message” during her speech, despite the booing.

“I think the president, if I have one critique of him, he could learn that from Melania,” Jones said. “Sometimes you don’t have to swing back. Sometimes you can stay on that message. And I think more people would support him as a result of this.”

Mrs. Trump is no stranger to protests. Earlier this month, the First Lady found herself the central target of anti-Trump protesters when she traveled to a Boston children’s hospital to soothe drug-addicted babies.

“Around 200 protesters, who claimed to be nurses, doctors, and ‘health care workers’ from Boston Medical Center where Trump was meeting with leadership and viewing the baby-cuddling program, carried signs opposing ‘babies in cages,’ and calling for an end to the ‘Trump-Pence regime,’” The Daily Wire reported of the protesters.

“The cuddling program, which has met with incredible success, helps babies born addicted to opioids and other controlled substances — a condition called Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome — handle the process of withdrawl after birth,” The Daily Wire noted. “The First Lady has made programs like Boston Medical Center’s the hallmark of her child health platform, and regularly visits children who are living with complicated and, often, terminal illnesses.”

Making matters worse, 13-year-old Trump son, Barron, has also been the focus of anti-Trump leftists. Last summer, for example, the child was attacked by left-wing Hollywood elite Peter Fonda, brother to actress and anti-Trump activist Jane Fonda.

Fonda posted in a now-deleted tweet: “WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT A**HOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. F***.”

Last week, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton shrugged off concerns regarding former Vice President Joe Biden’s apparent inappropriate touching of women and girls. “Get over it,” Mrs. Clinton told PEOPLE magazine during a joint-interview with daughter Chelsea, in which she also stressed the importance of removing President Donald Trump from office.

When PEOPLE raised questions about Biden’s suspect moments with females on the campaign trail, Hillary was quick to jump in, the magazine outlined.

“For goodness’ sake, I’m sorry, I have to jump in because I’ve heard a little bit about that,” Hillary said. “I mean, I don’t think that the Twitterverse is the American electorate, but there are lots of vocal voices that say all kinds of things.”

“[Biden] is a thoroughly decent human being who has served our country honorably and well for decades,” she continued. “You could take any person who sticks their little head above the parapet and says, ‘I’m going to run for president,’ and find something that … a little annoying habit or other kind of behavior that people are going to pick apart and disagree with.”

“This man (Trump) must be defeated. People who are putting themselves forward, which believe me, is a really difficult process to undergo, should be judged on the totality of their lives and their service,” Hillary said.

“We can pick apart anybody,” the former Secretary of State reiterated. “I mean, that’s a great spectator sport. But this man who’s there in the Oval Office right now poses a clear and present danger to the future of the United States. So get over it.”

Hillary emphasized, “Look at the candidates, look at what they’ve accomplished, look at what they have fought for — and vote for anybody to get rid of Donald Trump.”

For years, Biden has been widely criticized by both the Left and the Right for his overly-touchy interactions, partially with young girls and women. Left-wing darling Jon Stewart even ran a segment called “The Audacity Of Grope” in 2015 mocking such behavior from Biden.

In March, Biden was accused of sexual harassment by Democratic insider and former Nevada Democrat state Senator Lucy Flores.

“I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified,” Flores said, recalling Biden’s interaction with her at a 2014 political rally. “He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. … I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.”

Moreover, in May, notably after Biden vowed to respect girls and women’s spaces, the presidential candidate took heat for his bizarre behavior with a 10-year-old girl attending a town hall event, The Daily Wire reported. “In a somewhat odd moment at tonight’s AFT town hall, Biden tells a 10-year-old girl, ‘I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking.’ He takes her over to the assembled reporters, then stands behind her and puts his hands on her shoulders while he’s talking,” wrote The Washington Post’s Felicia Sonmez.

For Hillary, the take on Biden is consistent with her inconsistency on the issue of #MeToo-era concerns. During her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary attempted to thread the needle regarding accusations of harassment of sexual misconduct; when it comes to the many accusations against her husband, evidence and the accuser’s personal credibility is important. Simultaneously, all accusers must be “heard and believed.”

Actor Jeff Daniels painted supporters of President Donald Trump and a “wing” of the Republican Party as racists (KKK comparison included) on Monday during an appearance on far-left network MSNBC. He also warned that the re-election of President Trump would be “the end of democracy.”

Daniels, who is starring in Broadway’s current production of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” compared Trump’s rallies to a line from the play: “A mob is a place where people go to take a break from their conscience.”

“That’s what I see when I look at Donald Trump’s rallies, that’s when I see the lies he’s spewing at these people, and people going, ‘I gotta believe in something,’ and he said he’d bring my manufacturing job back and he didn’t … but at the end of the day, it’s race. It’s race,” the actor claimed, according to Deadline.

Daniels then broadened it to a “wing” of the Republican Party: “This is about the Republican Party — or a wing of it — going: ‘This is our last chance to save the party. And if we don’t, it’s the end of the Republican Party.’ And the only way they can do that was to tap the race button and say, ‘Go ahead, it’s OK.’ And [Trump] did,” he said. “And they did. That was the only card they had left to play, and they played it. And they aren’t going to go quietly.”

Earlier during the sit-down, the actor called his performances on Broadways a “wake-up call” for “white liberal America.”

“You walk out there and we pin the ears back of, basically, white America. White liberal America comes in, and they go, ‘We had no idea it was that tough.’ It’s a slap in the face; it’s a wake-up call,” he said.

Daniels then compared Trump supporters to KKK members and suggested that believing they have good intentions is dangerous and enabling. Deadline reports:

[Daniels] cites a moment in the play when the KKK is coming for Finch and his daughter Scout recognizes one as their neighbor and compares it to when Daniels asked his fellow Michiganders about the 2016 election results and they said, “Yeah, isn’t it great?” He then notes how Finch’s defending his neighbors by saying, “I know these people, they’re good people,” but “he’s an apologist, he’s an enabler,” Daniels said.

“And I think there are people in the Midwest, between the coasts, who don’t know anything about this, who don’t care about this, who don’t have any time for this, who have to make a decision now,” he continued. “You have to decide whether, like Atticus, you believe that there is still compassion, decency, civility, respect for others — ‘do unto others,’ remember that? — all that stuff you guys believe in, and you still voted not for Hillary or for Trump. Where are you now?”

Then came the warning we heard far too often leading up to the 2016 election about Trump: “If the big gamble is to go all the way to November 2020 … and lose, that’s the end of democracy.”

On Monday evening, the White House announced that President Donald Trump has granted a full pardon to a former United States Army lieutenant who was convicted of killing a suspected al-Qaeda terrorist in 2009.

Army 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for unpremeditated murder in a combat zone by a military court in 2009, but was later paroled. According to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, Trump “found Behenna ‘entirely deserving’ of a pardon.”

As noted in a report from The Washington Post, two soldiers and friends of Behenna were killed in a roadside explosion in 2008. An intelligence report later found that then-Iraqi operative Ali Mansur — the man Behenna would later kill — likely helped in organizing the explosion that murdered his battlefield compatriots.

After Mansur was interrogated and freed due to lack of conclusive evidence, Behenna sought to interrogate Mansur without authorization. “During the interrogation, Behenna shot Mr. Mansur in the head and chest,” reported The New York Times. The lieutenant left the suspected terrorist’s body in the remote area without telling anyone; Iraqi police found a dead Mansur the following day.

According to Behenna, he acted in self-defense against Mansur when Mansur threw a chunk of concrete at the lieutenant and reached for his handgun.

As reported by Fox News, Behenna’s parents claimed in 2018 that “the prosecution failed to disclose that their own expert’s analysis supported their son’s version of events. The expert felt so strongly that he reached out to the Behennas about his findings.”

“After judgment, however, the U.S. Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Mr. Behenna’s claim of self-defense,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in the statement regarding the pardon, according to CNN.

“Additionally, the Army Clemency and Parole Board reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible in 2014 — just 5 years into his sentence,” she added.

Sanders also cited “broad support” for Mr. Behenna “from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public.” According to Fox News, that support included “37 generals and admirals, along with a former Pentagon inspector general” all vouching for Behenna. The press secretary also noted that the former soldier was a “model prisoner” while serving his time behind bars.

President Trump has offered nearly a dozen pardons since his election in 2016. According to the Department of Justice, other pardons include former Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, and ranchers Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steven Hammond.

On Thursday, Facebook and Instagram (which is owned by Facebook, Inc.) permanently banned “dangerous individuals and organizations” from their platforms. Infowars founder Alex Jones, self-described investigative journalist Laura Loomer, Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson, provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan were among those included in the de-platforming.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a statement from a Facebook representative said, according to The New York Times. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

As highlighted by The Washington Examiner, the mainstream media went out of their way to label Farrakhan as a “far-right leader” when reporting the censorship:

The New York Times, the Washington Post, Politico, and the Atlantic were among news organizations that used this description of Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam and a virulent anti-Semite who has long been associated with left-wing politics. After receiving almost immediate criticism for the “right-wing” characterization on social media, outlets scrambled their articles.

Watson, one of the only purged personalities who still maintains a Twitter account, reacted to the act of censorship in a series of tweets. “Reports are true. I have been banned by Facebook. Was given no reason. I broke none of their rules,” he wrote. “In an authoritarian society controlled by a handful of Silicon Valley giants, all dissent must be purged.”

Watson suggested Loomer was contemplating suicide over the de-platforming. “Laura Loomer is now basically making thinly veiled suicide threats because of the way she has been treated. And many on here will laugh. Yet we’re the ‘hateful’ ones. OK,” Watson wrote. “I hope Laura is going to be fine; her friends should check on her.”

Jones had his Twitter account permanently banned in September after he confronted a CNN reporter about his de-platforming from other tech companies, CNBC reported at the time: “The ban appears to be related to a heated exchange between Jones and a CNN reporter Wednesday, which Jones live streamed on the Twitter-owned video service Periscope. Jones ranted at the reporter, as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, following back-to-back congressional hearings where Dorsey addressed online election meddling, as well as accusations of political bias and conservative censorship on the platform.”

Twitter said in a statement that they “took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos … that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ past violations.”

As Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro noted in August, soon after Apple, Facebook, and YouTube decided to remove content from Infowars in an apparently coordinated effort, the censorship “is a problem.”

“It’s a problem because these policies are extraordinarily vague,” he wrote. “These policies aren’t merely designed to crack down on speech openly advocating or threatening violence, or containing obscenity. These policies are deliberately unclear as well as political.”

Shapiro underscored how so-called “hate speech” is completely subjective:

What, for example, constitutes “hate speech”? Much of what Jones and his employees say is absolutely rotten pig excrement, but there’s no definition of hate speech that has a limiting principle. Is it “using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender” to state that transgender people suffer from a mental disorder? Or that they are not in fact members of the gender to which they claim membership? What constitutes “hate speech” when discussing the relationship between radical Islam and terrorism? None of this has been made clear.

“How exactly are we supposed to trust in free and open debate when those setting the limits are openly setting them up with embedded double-standards?” Shapiro asked. “The answer is, we don’t. Trust in social media is declining nearly as fast as trust in media overall. There’s a reason for that. And it’s not because social media tolerates voices like Jones. It’s because they don’t tolerate voices like Jones while tolerating voices who are just as bad on the political Left – and they show no signs of limiting their censorship to Alex Jones.”

Former CNN contributor Symone Sanders does not want white people leading the Democrat Party. Or, at least she used to feel that way.

Sanders was just tapped to serve as a senior advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden, who announced his long-expected 2020 presidential run on Thursday. Of course, if Biden has any success, he, a white male, would be the nominee of the Democratic Party.

But after President Donald Trump took office in 2016, Sanders said during a CNN segment that “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now,” noted The Washington Examiner.

Sanders added, “The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff at the highest levels from the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC.”

Biden is apparently the exception. And so too was Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), whom Sanders served as press secretary during his 2016 presidential run.

When serving as a CNN contributor, Sanders has turned heads on occasion for her social justice-themed commentary.

In October 2017, for example, Sanders suggested white people have no right to comment on the controversial kneeling protests in the NFL. “White people do not get to tell blacks folks or anybody else what is an acceptable form of protest,” she said, as The Daily Wire reported.

And last summer, Sanders said politicos calling for civility “might need to check their privilege.”

“It seems possible, I’m just reading the tea leaves here, that the White House would rather talk about Sarah Sanders being a victim, kicked out of this restaurant, asked to leave this restaurant, than the 2,500 children taken from their parents at the border,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said to Sanders, as previously reported by The Daily Wire.

“Absolutely,” the radical pundit agreed. “They’re using the bully pulpit and I think Sarah Huckabee Sanders thinks she’s Rosa Parks in this situation, and she’s absolutely not. Look, I definitely don’t want anyone coming up to me and putting me out the Shake Shack.”

“But, there is something to be said about the folks calling for civility might need to check their privilege,” Sanders added. “Where is the civility in the press briefing room, Jake? Where is the civility at the border for these children?”

Biden announced his candidacy on Thursday with a racially-charged video, castigating President Donald Trump as a defender of white supremacists.

As noted by The Daily Wire’s James Barrett, Biden’s announcement video “features a reference to Trump saying there were ‘very fine people on both sides’ following the Charlottesville Confederate monument protests that erupted in violence and resulted in a white supremacist plowing into and killing a peaceful liberal protester. Trump critics say the president was specifically defending white nationalists, while his defenders say he was generally referencing those protesting the removal of Confederate monuments. Amid backlash for his initial response, Trump went on to specifically denounce white supremacy.”

“In that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I’d seen in my lifetime,” Biden says in the video. “Trump must be stopped in 2020,” he added, or “he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are.”

This post has been updated to reflect that Symone Sanders is a former CNN contributor, and not a current contributor for the network as originally stated.

On Monday morning, President Donald Trump unloaded on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her most recent defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Trump posted a brutal video of Rep. Omar on Friday that condemned the Democrat for her controversial remarks concerning the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed thousands of Americans.

Under mounting pressure from vocal freshman Democrats, Pelosi demanded that the president take down the video, which she claimed was “dangerous.”

“Before Nancy, who has lost all control of Congress and is getting nothing done, decides to defend her leader, Rep. Omar, she should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements Omar has made,” Trump fired back on Twitter Monday morning.

“She is out of control, except for her control of Nancy!” the president pointedly added.

In a tweet posted Sunday, Pelosi called Trump’s video on Omar “dangerous” and a threat to Omar’s safety. She also demanded that Trump remove the tweet from social media.

“[Donald Trump’s] dangerous video must be taken down. I have spoken with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Rep. [Ilhan Omar], her family & her staff. They will continue to monitor & address the threats she faces,” she wrote.

The day before Pelosi’s tweet directed at Trump, the Democrat tried to condemn both Omar and the president.

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence. The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack,” she posted to social media on Saturday.

“As we visit our troops in Stuttgart to thank them and be briefed by them, we honor our first responsibility as leaders to protect and defend the American people. It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe,” Pelosi added.

It seems Pelosi offered her harsher condemnation of Trump only after Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) publicly criticized Democratic leadership for allegedly using younger Democrats as tokens for diversity.

“They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse. However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored. To truly honor our diversity is to never silence us,” Tlaib posted.

Here is the video that Trump tweeted concerning Omar:

Omar made the controversial 9/11 comments last month while giving a speech at an event for the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

“Here’s the truth. For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Rep. Omar said at the CAIR event, according to MarketWatch.

On Tuesday, conservative firebrand Candace Owens ripped into Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (CA) for playing a clip of past comments she made about nationalism and Adolf Hitler, which Owens says were purposefully taken out of context.

Lieu, who’s one of the media’s favorite anti-Trump #Resistance heroes, played the controversial clip of Owens discussing nationalism and Hitler during the House Judiciary Committee hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism. “I’m going to let her own words talk,” said the California Rep. before playing the audio from his cellphone.

“When we say ‘nationalism,’ the first thing people think about — at least in America — is Hitler. You know, he was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK then, fine. The problem is, he had dreams outside of Germany,” Owens is heard saying in the recording.

When the conservative was given a chance to respond to Lieu, she accused the Democrat of taking her remarks out of context to create a false narrative.

“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety. He purposefully presented an extracted clip,” Owens said, before Democratic House Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat, interjected to falsely accuse her of calling Mr. Lieu “stupid.”

“I didn’t refer to him as stupid. That’s not what I said. That’s not what I said at all. You didn’t listen to what I said,” responded Owens. “As I said, [Lieu] is assuming that black people will not pursue the full two-hour clip.”

“You didn’t hear the question that was asked of me,” she continued. “He’s trying to present that I was launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when, in fact, the question that was asked of me was pertaining to whether or not I believed in nationalism and that nationalism was bad. And what I responded to was that I do not believe that we should be characterizing Hitler as a nationalist. He was a homicidal psychopathic maniac that killed his own people. A nationalist would not kill their own people.”

“That is exactly what I was referring to in the clip, and he purposely wanted to give you a cut-up, similar to what they do to Donald Trump to create a different narrative,” Owens said. “That was unbelievably dishonest, and he did not allow me to respond to it, which is worrisome and to tell you a lot about where people are today in terms of trying to drug-up narratives.”

The “Blexit” founder said she was “offended” by the insinuation that she would defend Hitler.

“By the way, I would like to also add that I work for Prager University, which is run by [Dennis Prager, who is] an orthodox Jew,” she noted. “Not a single Democrat showed up to the embassy opening in Jerusalem. I sat on a plane for 18 hours to make sure that I was there. I am deeply offended by the insinuation, of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me.”

The Turning Point USA director also criticized Democrats’ faux concern about rising “white nationalism” in the United States. “The hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate crimes. It’s about fear mongering, power and control,” she said.

Owens later added that Democrats called the hearing “because they believe that if it wasn’t for social media, voices like mine would never exist, that my movement ‘Blexit,’ which is inspiring black Americans to leave the Democrat Party, would have never come about.”

Members of the Roswell, New Mexico City Council voted Thursday to make their jurisdiction a de facto “sanctuary city for the unborn.”

“The City Council of Roswell, New Mexico passed a resolution Thursday declaring its jurisdiction to be in support of ‘fetal life,’ something local pro-life activists say makes Roswell a ‘sanctuary city for the unborn,'” reported LifeSiteNews. “In a seven-to-one vote, with one council member abstaining, the City Council passed Resolution 19-28, which declares ‘that innocent human life, including fetal life, must always be protected and that Society must protect those who cannot protect themselves.’”

The resolution expressly “honors the rights of healthcare providers to object on moral grounds to performing abortions and opposes any regulation or law seeking to violate that right.”

So-called “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants have become a pet project of the Left in recent years; such jurisdictions shield illegal immigrant criminals from federal authorities. In such likeness, the city of Roswell fashioned their area a “sanctuary” for the most vulnerable in our society: the voiceless unborn.

As reported by Roswell Daily Record, Councilor Angela Moore spoke on Thursday to offer personal testimony in support of the resolution. Moore became pregnant with twins as a teen; resisting the pressure to abort, she carried and delivered the babies and gave them up for adoption.

“And was it difficult? Yes, but my point about this is that you have the option — and that’s why I agreed to adding to this,” she said. “The information on adoption is expensive and all that … (adoption) it was an option of choice that we have as women. So this is a sad situation, that we’ve come to a place where they don’t think a life is a life, but at that age, I don’t think I knew any better. And until someone gave me a choice, an option, I thought that was my only option and so this is an important situation for me …”

Citizen Molly Boyles also spoke in support of the resolution. “Here in the United States, we have severe penalties for destroying eagle eggs or turtle eggs, but human children in the womb, with a heartbeat with feelings are being dismembered and killed,” she said. “I’m very happy to hear that the bill did not pass, but I do think that it would be a great thing for a city to declare that we believe in the sanctity of life …”

The Roswell declaration comes in the wake of extremist abortion-till-birth legislation popping up across the country. For example, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, recently signed a bill which allows for the murder of the unborn up to the moment of birth for essentially any reason, loosens the restriction on who can perform abortions, and strips the murder of the unborn — even the wanted unborn — from the state’s penal code.

A similar bill in Rhode Island is currently making its way through the legislature, and sitting Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia seemingly endorsed infanticide, or abortion post-birth, during a radio interview.

The New Mexico Senate recently rejected House Bill 51, which would have forced doctors with moral objections to perform abortions and stripped sections of the penal code which criminalize abortions.

As noted by LifeSiteNews, “New Mexico is home to an infamous late-term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options, and has some of the loosest abortion laws in the country. Southwestern Women’s Options commits abortions throughout the third trimester of pregnancy.”
