Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement condemning Columbia President Shafik for surrendering to the pro-Hamas sympathizers and failing to protect Columbia’s Jewish students. Columbia University's leadership has repeatedly extended their deadlines and refused to hold these terrorist sympathizers accountable.

“Columbia has surrendered to the radical pro-Hamas antisemitic mob instead of securing campus and protecting Columbia’s Jewish students. There can be no more extensions or delays. There can be no negotiations with self-proclaimed Hamas terrorists and their sympathizers.”
