UCLA threatened the College Republicans chapter on the college campus, known as Bruin Republicans, with a conditional security fees provision that required students, faculty and staff to compose at least 70% of the audience for an upcoming speech by conservative speaker Ben Shapiro.

As the College Fix noted, Alliance Defending Freedom, a pro-free speech and pro-religious freedom legal help group, threatened a lawsuit on behalf of the Bruin Republicans, and the university backed down from their demands.
