Tancredo, a fringe presidential candidate in 2008, boycotted a Spanish-language Republican debate during the campaign, saying the event "pandered" to Spanish speakers and encouraged the "balkanization" of the U.S.

His speech on Tuesday--to be held at 6:30 p.m. in Room 103 of Bingham Hall--is hosted by the UNC-Chapel Hill chapter of Youth for Western Civilization, a self-styled "right-wing youth movement" founded in 2008 to "create a subculture that will promote the survival of Western Civilization and pride in Western heritage" on college campuses

Update: Also see Sam Wardle's coverage of the Tancredo speech, which was cut short by protesters.
