Neugebauer, Martin: Re-evaluate Student Visas

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, the former Texas Tech student who now faces a federal terrorism charge, is a citizen of Saudi Arabia who was in the U.S. on a student visa. 

On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Congressman Randy Neugebauer and Mayor Tom Martin were asked if the U.S. should re-evaluate how student visas are handed out.

“Absolutely,” Neugebauer said.  “I think we do need to make sure we know a lot about everyone we let in this country, not just people on student visas. “

“There’s one school of thought that the best way to spread democracy through the world is encouraging students to come here from every country for an education, and I support that,” Martin said.  “But, we ought to be looking at not only student visas, but anybody coming into this country, and have a better idea of who’s here.
