Robert Hurt votes for visa restrictions

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after voting in favor of the Visa Waiver Program Improvement Act, which will make strides to ensure that individuals entering the United States through the Visa Waiver Program do not pose a threat to our national security.

“The Islamic State and its agents of evil will seek to exploit any avenue they can to come to the United States and inflict harm on our citizens.  At present, the Visa Waiver Program clearly demonstrates vulnerabilities that the Islamic State seeks to exploit.  The Visa Waiver Program Improvement Act will suspend a country’s ability to participate in the Visa Waiver Program if it is not sufficiently meeting a number of new requirements, all of which are designed to keep those who seek to do us harm from coming to our shores.  Failure to fix these weaknesses and close these gaping loopholes leaves our nation vulnerable and allows unacceptable levels of risk to persist.  It is my hope the Senate will consider this commonsense legislation immediately and send it to the President’s desk.  This is one small, but vital, step to improve our national security, but we must do more to destroy the Islamic State and all agents of terror seeking to perpetuate evil in our country and across the globe.”
