SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – A Bay Area Representative suggested in a CNN interview that the country should kick “every Russian student out” of universities in retaliation against Russian President Vladamir Putin.

Rep. Eric Swalwell was interviewed on Thursday. In the interview, Swalwell said that “closing their embassy in the United States” and “kicking every Russian student out” of the country should be on the table.

Here is Swalwell’s full response from the interview:

“Everything we do has to be aligned with our allies and the fact that we were able to get the Germans to stop this pipeline, that’s huge. That’s U.S. leadership on the international stage, and so, we want to move with our allies in NATO but also in countries, like Japan, who can, you know, take quite swift and severe actions against Russia. But yes, on the table should be sanctioning Putin personally. Completely taking them out of the European and international banking system which is known as SWIFT. Frankly, I think closing their embassy in the United States, kicking every Russian student out of the United States, those should all be on the table, and Putin needs to know that every day that he is in Ukraine, there are more severe options that could come.”


I see Democrats are back to their same ways in the 1940s. Punishing American students because of their ethnicity?

Pathetic.

Bucky, learning rather late in life, that citizens of Russia are attending American schools.
Was his mind blown? Or will he even understand this? Let's watch. Gosh this really deserves its own thread right?

So you DO see Russian nationals* as Americans.
Hmmmm, now do Mexicans. 😆😆😆

*As long as they love Trump and slurp Putin, right?

PS: The Soviet Union AND Russia have kicked American citizens out of universities on several occasions in the past.
Did you make shit up and cry then?

Dumb idea!

If I were President I would push to fast track every Russian student that wanted it to Citizenship in the U.S. as long as they renounced their Russian Citizenship. As for any that didn't want it, I would just leave them be.

Um...he's not talking about citizens of Russian heritage, he's talking about actual Russians attending US colleges. Lord.

I'd go the other way. Offer citizenship.

The EU should offer European citizenship to every Russian soldier who wants to defect. Putin would lose his army in a day.

He quite clearly said that sending Russian students home "should be on the table", along with other actions that can be considered.

I dont know if any of that is a good idea. We aren't at open hostilities yet and we better hope we never are. I think Biden should just lay low, give the sanctions and banking restrictions time to take hold, keep an eye on the ground in Ukraine, offer aid.

I'm not Chinese - go ask your handlers in Beijing, if you need to know the exact timing
You're the one who made the comment about Swalwell not mentioning Chinese students.
