House Speaker Mike Johnson Faces Heckling at Columbia After Calling for National Guard on Campus

HeadlineApr 25, 2024

On Wednesday, Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson faced heckling and boos when he visited Columbia University. Johnson called for Biden to send in the National Guard to bring order to the campus, where students set up the Gaza Solidarity Encampment last week. Johnson also called for Columbia President Minouche Shafik to step down. Columbia students criticized Johnson’s visit.

Grace Dai: “What make us scared or threatened is the president bring NYPD to our campus, is when the people like him to say bring the National Guard to our campus. We don’t need that. That is the thing making us feel scared and threatened.”
