Chuck Schumer Calls for Capitol Riot Participants to Be Placed on No-Fly List

C-SPAN

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday held a press conference, where he insisted that those who took part in storming the United States Capitol should be placed on the “no-fly list.”

“Any of those who were inside the Capitol should not be able to fly and should be placed on the no-fly list,” Schumer said. “We are calling on the authorities, FBI, TSA, Department of Homeland Security to put them on the no-fly list immediately.”

“Amidst the continued threat of future violence, online, the federal government’s own concerns, I spoke to [FBI] Director [Christopher] Wray about this twice in the last few days,” Schumer added. “We cannot allow these same insurrectionists to get on a plane, cause more violence and more damage.”

Schumer continued his discussion, saying those that took part in the storming of the Capitol are a “threat to the homeland.”

“These individuals are a threat to the homeland, as defined by the law; the law allows this and they should be placed on the no-fly list,” Schumer concluded.
