Brown (the Senator, Not the School) Beats Harvard

Scott Brown is taking on Harvard over its continuing ROTC ban. The Boston Herald has the complete story:

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown today blasted Harvard University’s decision to keep in place its campus ROTC ban until Pentagon restrictions on gays are lifted, saying the school has its “priorities upside down” by favoring illegal-immigrant students over military-affiliated students.

“I am extremely disappointed to learn of Harvard University’s decision to continue to ban ROTC from its campus,” the Massachusetts Republican said a day after Harvard president Drew Gilpin Faust re-affirmed Harvard’s ROTC ban until the military’s “don’t ask-don’t tell” rule is lifted.

“It is incomprehensible to me that Harvard does not allow ROTC to use its facilities, but welcomes students who are in this country illegally,” Brown said in a statement. “Harvard President Faust has been lobbying on Capitol Hill in support of the DREAM Act, which would grant legal status to illegal immigrants attending college. Harvard has its priorities upside down. They should embrace young people who want to serve their country, rather than promoting a plan that provides amnesty to students who are in this country illegally.”
