Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) introduced the Creating Accountability Measures Protecting University Students Historically Abused, Threatened, and Exposed to Crimes Act (CAMPUS HATE Crimes Act). The bill proposes a comprehensive approach to ensure universities officials are held accountable for hate crimes and hate-based incidents that occur on their campuses. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, hate groups are specifically “targeting college campuses” where “you're dealing with people who may be just starting to form their ideas about the world.” Following the indictment of Lt. Richard Collins III’s murderer with a hate crime and the overall demonstrable rise of hate speech and violence on college campuses over the past 12 months, Congressman Brown drafted the legislation to better ensure students are not exposed to hate-speech, hate symbols or acts of racially motivated violence on campus.

A nuclear-armed Iran - today, tomorrow or anytime in the future - is not an acceptable option. While the Iran Deal is imperfect, the International Atomic Energy Agency, our allies and even the President’s own foreign policy team have confirmed that Iran is in compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action’s nuclear commitments and is currently subject to the world’s most robust nuclear verification regime. Rather than engaging our allies and the international community on how we can address Iran’s dangerous activities and strengthen the nuclear agreement, President Trump is abdicating his responsibility.
