Sessions: ‘We Have to Take Seriously’ the ‘Erosion’ of Free Speech on College Campuses

‘We believe that free speech is a civil right and the Department of Justice will not stand idly by’

EXCERPT:

LABRADOR: "What more can Congress do to protect the First Amendment and religious liberty?"
SESSIONS: "Thank you. We've got religious liberty in also the First Amendment's speech. I think it is time for us to take seriously the erosion it seems of the fundamental respect for the right of people to express different views that are occurring today. We have seen it on college campuses. We believe that free speech is a civil right and the Department of Justice will not stand idly by."
