Conservative provocateur and campus free speech activist Milo Yiannopoulos is set to speak at the University of California, Los Angeles on Monday, Feb. 26. Yiannopoulos, who has frequently made international headlines for his visits to college campuses, is scheduled to give a talk entitled “10 Things I Hate About Mexico” to the Bruin College Republicans.
A Facebook event page describing the event, says, "The debate on immigration often only focuses on the impact immigration has on America, but ignores the root causes of why people are leaving Mexico to come here. Does Mexico do enough for its people?"
Yiannopoulos’ speaking engagements often draw large crowds, including hundreds of supporters and protesters alike. Violent clashes between the two groups have caused a number of his events to be canceled or postponed, and have ignited a debate on the proper role college administrators play in suppressing or monitoring speech on campus.
“Since this is Milo’s first college campus event of 2018, this will be a very large and anticipated event,” a press release states. "The Bruin Republicans will be selling two different kinds of tickets for the event. The first category of tickets is General Admission, which are going to be priced at $30 per ticket. The VIP tickets are the second category in which you will get priority seating at the price of $50 per ticket.”
