I was not able to find any MSM citations for what you talked about, so I looked at Wikipedia:

During the occupation, the militants illegally dug a new road using a government-owned excavator, expanded a parking lot, dug trenches, destroyed part of a USFWS-owned fence, and removed security cameras.[106][202] Some of the refuge's pipes broke, after which the militants, officials said, defecated "everywhere."[200] Investigators found "significant amounts of human feces" at "two large trenches and an improvised road on or adjacent to grounds containing sensitive artifacts" of the Burns Paiute Tribe.[203] A USFWS spokesperson said that the damage risked "the destruction and desecration of culturally significant Native American sites" and called it "disgusting, ghoulish behavior."[106] The Burns Paiute Tribe condemned the damage;[204] tribal council member Jarvis Kennedy described it as if "someone went to Arlington National Cemetery and went to the bathroom on the graves and rode a bulldozer over them."[205] Two of the militants, Sean Larry Anderson and Jake Edward Ryan, were subsequently indicted for "depredation of government property," an offense that carries a potential ten-year jail sentence.[182][206]

It sounds like you are confusing two separate incidents. They used a bulldozer to expand the parking lot and to dig trenches; and they defecated in a ditch and along a road that goes through the burial site (after the plumbing broke). It does not say that they used the bulldozer to make the road through the site, but that there was a road there.

Does it matter though? The countries you mentioned already implemented the background check system that the 7 did not implement. Do you expect that it has any bearing either? There are many muslim countries he has no business dealing with that were not in the ban, it is a conspiracy!

"Criminals and rapists"

I can't say much about the rest of these, but did you actually listen to what he said, or the sound bite version? He said that there were many criminals and rapists coming into the country illegally, and that many of the people who were coming in were being assaulted by same. This is verifiable fact that was published by a Univision owned magazine, that Trump was taking the information from. He didn't say that they were all criminals and rapists, he said that there were many there though. So, you start off with the fake news version, and continue from there. This makes me not want to believe the others, that I am not even clear what you are speaking of.

But, that is not what the protesters were saying. They were calling for his speech to be banned by the government (Berkeley is the government, being a public university), for being insensitive. This is wrong, it isn't speaking against his speech, but trying to prevent him from saying it. Do you see the difference?
