Republican Arkansas Rep. Tom Cotton has demanded immediate action against any foreign nationals, especially students, who have shown support for Hamas. Cotton’s letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas calls for the immediate deportation of any such individuals under federal law. The Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee’s antisemitic letter is cited as a starting point for identifying these individuals. Against the backdrop of traumatic events in Gaza instigated by Hamas, the need for swift action is stressed.
