Tom Cotton Says Federal Law Requires DHS To Deport Foreign Nationals Who ‘Expressed Support For Hamas’

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) demanded the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) deport foreign nationals who have voiced support for Hamas after the terrorist group’s brutal attack on Israel earlier this month. 

Cotton penned a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Monday, calling on the Biden administration official to abide by federal law, which requires foreign nationals to be deported if they support or endorse terrorist activity.

“I write to urge you to immediately deport any foreign national—including and especially any alien on a student visa — that has expressed support for Hamas and its murderous attacks on Israel. These fifth-columnists have no place in the United States,” Cotton wrote, according to Fox News.
