ICYMI: Rubio Joins Fox News

Oct 15, 2023 | Press Releases

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined FOX News Live to discuss his request for the Biden Administration to cancel and rescind visas for foreign nationals who endorse or espouse terrorist activity, including those who defend or support Hamas by calling for intifada, jihad, or other similar actions to eliminate the Jewish state of Israel. 

See below for highlights, and watch the full interview on YouTube and Rumble.

On Rubio’s letter to Blinken urging the Biden Administration to revoke visas from those who are supporters of Hamas:

“It’s the existing law of the country. Our laws say that you are inadmissible under a visa – student visa, to be a teacher here, to be a tourist, whatever – if you are a supporter of a designated terrorist group. This week, we see people marching at universities and in the streets of our country calling for intifada, celebrating what Hamas has done, justifying what Hamas has done. These are supporters of Hamas. Those people who are here on a visa – to be a student, to be a professor, or whatever – need to go. 

“They should never have been allowed in. We probably didn’t know that about them. No one’s going to tell you, ‘I’m a Hamas supporter,’ on the way in. But once we know you are, our laws say you shouldn’t have a visa, and you need to go. … We should not have people inside of our country who are here as visitors, foreign nationals, who then take to the streets and call for supporting this terrorist organization that just butchered babies, slaughtered innocents, and took hostages, including Americans, into Gaza.”

On the motives of pro-Hamas demonstrators:

“This has nothing to do with innocent Palestinian civilians…. There was this massacre carried out by these terrorists. That’s what these people took to the streets to support. What else are they supporting? Why weren’t they marching two weeks to three weeks ago? These marches were trying to justify what Hamas did as what Israel deserves. That’s what they’re arguing, in direct response to a call from Hamas. It is Hamas who said, ‘Come out on Friday all over the world and demonstrate,’ so they are responding directly to Hamas. 

“Why do you think they cover their faces? Why do you think so many of these people won’t give journalists their last names? … Because they don’t want people to know who they are. Because they know exactly what they’re calling for. They broadcast it in the flyers they put out, which have these paraglider images on it, almost mocking what happened, knowing that those gliders are the ones that went into that rave concert and killed, just wiped out – it’s despicable – as many people as they could get their hands on.”

On Rubio’s legislation to withhold funding from colleges and universities that allow pro-terrorist activity on campus:

“In this country, there is a First Amendment. If people want to go out there and argue for a two state solution, [they are free to do so]. I’ll be more than prepared to argue why I think that’s unrealistic right now and for the foreseeable future and so forth. But that is different from chanting things like, ‘From the river to the sea.’ You know what from the river to the sea means? It means they want all of what is Israel today. They want every Jew out of there, and they want to create a fundamentalist Islamic government country named Palestine and drive every Jew out of the region. That is what that means. And we know that’s what that means, and they admit it. 

“I think that is inciting violence. You are going out there and arguing on behalf of a terrorist organization. You do not have a First Amendment right to argue on behalf of a terrorist organization in this country, one that not only has committed violence, but has pledged to commit even more violence in the future, until every Jew is out of the region. There is no First Amendment right to that. We most certainly should not be subsidizing it with federal taxpayer dollars that are paying for student aid so that all these wackos can go to school, be further indoctrinated, and then take to the streets calling for intifada and the murder of Jews. Why are we paying for this?”
