Congressman Gus Bilirakis

Representing the 12th District of Florida

ICYMI: FOX News Special Report ? Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge Discuss Bilirakis Legislation to Strengthen U.S. Student Visa Program

May 3, 2013
Bilirakis Blog

 

The arrest of three additional suspects in connection with the Boston bombing, two of whom were in the United State on student visa, is the latest in a long history of system failures demonstrating we are not adequately screening students before they are admitted to study in the U.S. or ensuring they are abiding by the terms of their visa once here.

On the May 2, 2013, edition of Fox News Special Report, Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge discuss H.R. 640 (https://1.usa.gov/10wLKLI), a bill Congressman Bilirakis filed to close this gap in our student visa program. The Congressman has introduced legislation to this effect in the past four Congresses.
