Isra Hir­si, daugh­ter of Con­gress­woman Ilhan Omar, says she’s home­less and hun­gry after Barnard Col­lege sus­pend­ed her. Why? Protest­ing Israel at Columbia.

Super Expen­sive School Says “See Ya!”

Hir­si joined over 100 stu­dents arrest­ed for occu­py­ing Columbi­a’s lawn in a pro-Pales­tine demo. Now, her $90,000-a-year col­lege kicked her out of her dorm and the din­ing hall.

Tar­get­ed by the Cops?

Hir­si claims the arrests were unfair. They said the protest was peace­ful — pray­ing, singing, and cook­ing togeth­er. Was this a free speech fail?

Is Col­lege Activism Risky Business?

Hir­si’s case sparks a debate. Should stu­dents protest­ing on cam­pus risk los­ing their hous­ing and food?
