More than 2,000 people have been arrested at colleges and universities since April 18 as a growing wave of pro-Palestinian campus protests across the US.

During weeks of protests, protesters have called for schools to divest from companies that support Israel and the war in Gaza.

Recent days have seen a major crackdown on protesters: Nearly 200 people were arrested on May 1, after April 30 saw the largest number of arrests in a day since the protests began with nearly 400 arrests, according to a CNN review.

President Joe Biden has delivered his most wide-ranging speech yet on the unrest. He drew a line between what he called peaceful and violent protests, reiterated his support for Israel, and rejected calls for the National Guard to intervene.

Portland State University: At least 30 people were arrested Thursday at the school, where law enforcement was working to clear a library that had been occupied by protesters since Monday, authorities said.

University of Pennsylvania: Eight days after a pro-Palestinian encampment was set up in the middle of the university, the Ivy League school wrote a letter to the Philadelphia Mayor’s Office asking for more police resources, a school spokesman told CNN on Thursday.

Columbia University: The district attorney’s office is looking into the incident in which a New York Police Department officer opened fire in Hamilton Hall during a Tuesday night police activity at the school, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office told CNN.

Emory University: The Department of Education’s civil rights office has opened a federal investigation into the Atlanta university, according to a letter the department sent to Palestine Legal and the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and shared with CNN. The investigation comes after a pro-Palestinian protest at the university last week ended in arrests – but based on alleged incidents the group said took place before the demonstration.

University of California, Los Angeles: More than 200 people were arrested Thursday on suspicion of defying orders to disperse from the now-dismantled encampment on the campus.
