Hawley to Biden: Send in the National Guard to Protect Jewish Students on Campus

Monday, April 22, 2024

Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statement, calling on President Biden to send in the U.S. National Guard to guarantee Jewish students’ safety on campuses as antisemitic protests throughout the country threaten violence. Senator Hawley repeatedly condemned the most recent antisemitic demonstrations taking place at elite universities, calling them a sign of “moral rot” within academia.

Last October, the Senate passed Senator Hawley’s resolution condemning Hamas and the antisemitic student groups on campuses that have continued to celebrate the Oct. 7 terrorist attack against Israel. The passage of Senator Hawley’s resolution came after Democrats initially blocked the measure.
