UNR speaker invite angers some faculty, students

The Associated Press

RENO, Nev.

Some faculty and students at the University of Nevada, Reno are angered that an anti-illegal immigration activist was invited to participate at campus forum next week.

Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, is one of two panelists in a Nov. 19 forum sponsored by the Associated Students of the University of Nevada's Flipside Productions.

Some faculty opponents say they hope to prevent Gilcrist's from attending.

The other panelist is Miguel Acosta, a member of an immigrant rights organization in New Mexico.

Organizers say the forum is intended to start a dialogue.

Harvard University rescinded its invitation last month for Gilchrist to be on a panel discussion on immigration after students opposed his aggressive stance.
