Antisemitism on Campus

DeSANTIS ON COLLEGE CHAOS: 'The Minute There’s Repercussions, You Will Start to See a Change' [WATCH]

The Florida Gov says it’s time to get tough.

During a recent press conference at the Cox Science Center and Aquarium where he announced investments for Everglades Restoration, Governor Ron DeSantis reacted to antisemitic protests happening on college campuses across the country — most notably at Columbia, NYU, Berkeley and the Gov’s alma mater, Yale.

“If I were in charge, I would send the Justice Department after those universities, because this is unacceptable to have this type of of anti-semitism, where it’s not just bad speech, they’re really targeting Jewish students,” DeSantis said. “It’s a hostile environment and violates the civil rights of those students and these universities, they just aren’t willing to do what needs to be done.”

“I think the students if they’re foreign students on visas, their visa should be canceled and they should be sent home. That should just happen,” he said. “Second, if it’s students, American students, and they’re violating code of conduct, you start expelling people — the behavior will change.”

“Right now, in higher education, particularly in those schools up there, the inmates run the asylum,” he continued. “And so the students do this stuff, knowing there’s not gonna be any repercussions. The minute there’s repercussions, you will start to see a change in behavior. And so I think what’s going on up there, it’s disgraceful, but I think Biden has been very weak in basically allowing that to happen without getting the Department of Education and Department of Justice involved, which I would have done.”
