Caving in to outcries that they represent the South's racist past, Greg Fenves, the president of the University of Texas in Austin, announced on Thursday that the statue of Jefferson Davis will be removed from the campus's Main Mall and moved to the school's Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.
The statue of Woodrow Wilson was moved as well to “maintain symmetry on the mall.”

Evidently they are being moved to another location on the UT campus. The action was requested by student government.
Meanwhile statues of baseball players are being erected, you know, cause sports is important.
