Pointing to NAS Pensacola Terrorist Attack, Rick Scott Pushes Bill Reforming Training for Foreign...
Back in March, Scott brought out a proposal to reform how foreign nationals are trained at American bases. U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, is cosponsoring the bill in the U.S. Senate while U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., is championing the bill in the U.S. House with the support of U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.
“The Secure U.S. Bases Act requires a thorough vetting process before a foreign student enters the U.S.; creates a special, limited visa for foreign students; and establishes a review process so that DOD is not operating training programs in the U.S. that would be better operated abroad,” Scott’s office noted.
Scott said he was open to a classified committee session if needed with federal law enforcement and intelligence services to study the matter.
