Arizona State University canceled an on-campus event where Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., was going to speak Friday.
The event was organized by the Arizona Palestine Network, which is not an on-campus organization at ASU. Tlaib was going to give a speech at the “Palestine is an American issue” event.
An ASU spokesperson told Fox News Digital the event didn’t follow university policies and procedures.
“Organizers of events using ASU facilities must be properly registered with ASU and must meet all university requirements for crowd management, parking, security, and insurance. In addition, the events must be produced in a way which minimizes disruption to academic and other activities on campus. The event featuring Congresswoman Tlaib was planned and produced by groups not affiliated with ASU and was organized outside of ASU policies and procedures. Accordingly, that event will not take place today on the ASU Tempe campus,” the spokesperson said.
The Arizona Palestine Network responded to the cancelation on Facebook, calling it “completely unacceptable.”
“Rashida Tlaib must be heard on campus as the only Palestinian member of Congress who plans to speak on an American issue at this event.
