Ann Coulter's backers at UC Berkeley file lawsuit

However, on April 18, officials informed the group that her speech was canceled due to campus security concerns, according to Fox News. My view is, let her speak, and just don't show up.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter got some surprising backing over the weekend from Bernie Sanders, the ultra liberal Democratic senator whose views are nearly diametrically opposed to hers.

The Berkeley College Republicans invited Coulter to speak on the subject of illegal immigration. They also say that the school policy of exercising control over events with "high-profile speakers" is unconstitutionally vague.
