U.S. Students March Out of Vice President Mike Pence's Notre Dame Commencement Speech

Indianapolis, May 22 (RHC)-- In the U.S. state of Indiana, more than 100 students marched out of the Notre Dame graduation ceremony to protest Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement speech. 

The U.S. vice president was chosen as the commencement speaker after thousands of students and professors signed a letter demanding the university not invite President Trump.  

After leaving the official graduation ceremony, protesting students held their own "alternative" graduation in a nearby park, where they held hands and sang the Notre Dame hymn.  Among the students’ issues was discrimination against Muslims.  Vice President Pence was also the former governor and congressional representative from Indiana.
