Senator Suggests Denying VISA’s for Chinese Students – Tom Cotton Faces Backlash

367 0

Among all of the backlash, problematic finger pointing, consistent misinformation, one senator seems pretty gung-ho on one plan. Namely, senator Tom Cotton has suggested that the US should begin  revoking Visa’s for Chinese Students.

You might be thinking that this has something to do with social distancing and China being ground zero for COVID. However, Cotton has something a little more national on his mind.

“It’s a scandal to me that we have trained so many of the Chinese Communist Party’s brightest minds to go back to China, to compete for our jobs, to take our business and ultimately to steal our property and design weapons and other devices that can be used against the American people. I think we need to take a very hard look at the visas that we give to Chinese nationals to come to the United States to study, especially at the postgraduate level in advanced scientific and technological fields.”

What Exactly does this mean for students?

So you begin to see the backlash dilemma that he is going to start facing. However, his basis is relatively solid all things considered. Most countries do not teach things like artificial intelligence sciences at a graduate level. Most Universities offer it as a postgraduate, making it much more difficult to earn.

Making the US a prime breeding ground for foreigners to learn everything they can, then leave and take it somewhere else. Which to be fair, isn’t the ultimate goal of college to learn something well enough to make money off of it and then leave?

After the controversy in January, when the Justice Department memo of a Harvard professor taking undisclosed money from China. Things are tending to get a little more complicated around this particular subject.

What do you make of Senator Cotton’s comments? Do you agree with him or do you think he needs to calm down a little bit and think? Let us know in the comments and follow Scoophash for more political updates as they come out!
