Republicans Move to Deport Pro-Hamas Foreign Students – EVOL

Republican Rep. Andy Ogles (R-TN) has introduced legislation that seeks to deport foreign students involved in pro-Hamas protests on America’s college campuses.

It also applies to foreign students whom authorities have “arrested while establishing, participating in, or promoting an encampment” on college grounds.
