Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas is calling for the deportation of foreign nationals who have expressed support for Hamas and the terrorist group’s brutal attacks against Israel.
“I am writing to call on you to immediately deport any foreigner – especially any foreigner on a student visa – who has expressed support for Hamas and its murderous attacks on Israel,” Cotton wrote in an article letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
“Federal law clearly states that any alien who ‘advocates or advocates terrorist activities or persuades others to advocate or support terrorist activities or support a terrorist organization’ is inadmissible and subject to deportation,” the senator wrote.
Hamas terrorists have slaughtered people in Israel, including children.
Some Harvard student groups joined a opinion with the statement: “We… hold the Israeli regime solely responsible for all the violence that is unfolding.”
Cotton suggested first deporting foreign students who “signed or approved the anti-Semitic letter.”
“The horrific explosion of anti-Semitism in the United States in recent weeks should concern everyone who shares American values. While American citizens may have the right under the First Amendment to express disgusting vitriol if they so choose, no foreigner has the right to do so.” “I am an advocate of terrorism in the United States,” Cotton noted.
Cotton opposes the idea of America providing aid to Gaza, claiming that such aid would serve to strengthen Hamas.
“The reality is that Hamas is in control and by allowing aid into Gaza, Hamas is receiving supplies. In the long term, the best way to help the Palestinian people is to completely destroy Hamas,” the lawmaker said tweeted.
Some Democratic lawmakers are pushing a resolution that would pressure the Biden administration to call for a ceasefire.
“Calling for a ceasefire means Hamas can get away with massacring Israelis and Americans. That’s the pro-Hamas position,” Cotton says tweeted.
