Scott, Rubio, DeSantis Visit Pensacola; Call For Tougher Vetting Of International Trainees

Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott visited Pensacola NAS over the weekend following Friday’s deadly shooting, and Gov. Ron DeSantis visited Pensacola again on Sunday.

Three sailors died at the hands of a Saudi national in what the FBI is now investigating as an act of terrorism.

Rubio, Scott and DeSantis are calling for tougher vetting of foreign nationals training on American military bases.

“I’m extremely concerned by the reports that this shooter was a foreign national training on a U.S. military base in Florida,” Scott said. “Whether this individual was motivated by radical Islam or was simply mentally unstable, this was an act of terrorism. It’s clear that we need to take steps to ensure that any and all foreign nationals are scrutinized and vetted extensively before being embedded with our American men and women in uniform.”
