Correction (April 26 12: 16 a.m.): Due to an editing error, an earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the charges were dropped against senior Haley Koch following last year’s protest at Tom Tancredo’s speech. The charges were dismissed. The story has been changed to reflect the correction. The Daily Tar Heel apologizes for the errors.
Due to a reporting error, “ASG to elect certain 2010-11 officers at weekend meeting” incorrectly stated that UNC student Dakota Williams was chief financial officer of the Association of Student Governments. He stepped down from that position in December.
The last time UNC students gathered to protest the arrival of former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., a window was broken and a student was arrested.
And Wednesday, protesters promised that the second visit on Monday by Tancredo, an outspoken opponent of undocumented immigration, will not go unnoticed. The University has created guidelines to warn against a disruption.
“Because we have done it before — in the halls, in the auditoriums and in the courts — we will defeat them again,” said senior Haley Koch, who was arrested after last year’s protest. Her charges were later dismissed.
