As Vice President Mike Pence walked up to deliver his commencement address at the University of Notre Dame on Sunday, dozens of students left their seats and left the ceremony.

The students had pre-planned the protest due to Pence’s ideology. “‘I’m not going to sit and listen to someone who has advocated for horrific sexual violence policies congratulate me on graduating from this place that I’ve been working so hard to improve,” one student told CBS News.

As the students stood up and began to leave, jeers and boos rained down on them from the gathered audience.
