MILWAUKEE — A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student group that's invited a speaker who's raised the ire of some Muslim organizations elsewhere because of his anti-Islamic message is objecting to a school demand that it post extra security fees for the appearance.

UWM's Conservative Union said the university is trying to kill the Dec. 4 campus appearance by Walid Shoebat, and to stifle free speech.
