Security Threat!? College Republicans Denied Entry to Obama Speech
A group of College Republicans traveled to the University of Central Missouri this week for a speech by President Obama, where they held a small protest outside. They all had tickets to the speech, and when they tried to enter to sit and watch, they were refused entry for "security reasons."
The Secret Service says it stopped letting people in when the room reached maximum capacity, also noting that having a ticket does not guarantee admission.
A.J. Feather, chairman of the Missouri College Republicans, talked to Shannon Bream today about the situation. He said that the group of students were never told that the room was full when they were refused entry.
Though they had put their protest signs away, some of the students were wearing College Republican t-shirts. He also pointed out that, based on what he was told, the Republican students were turned away "quite a ways away" from the door.
