Thursday, May 09, 2024

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, put witnesses on record in yesterday’s hearing, pressing them on whether they support deporting and canceling visas for undocumented students participating in unlawful anti-Israel protests.

“Is there anybody . . . who thinks that we should not deport students who are here unlawfully . . . who are calling for the death of Jewish students, who are violating the laws of the U.S.?” asked Senator Hawley.

“We should a moral message that if you do that, and you are here unlawfully, you should be deported. If you are here on a student visa, you ought to have your visa canceled,” he continued.

Earlier this week, Senator Hawley sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, pressing President Biden’s Department of Justice to investigate the third-party funding behind the violent, coordinated antisemitic protests plaguing college campuses.
