U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after reports that the Biden Administration plans to waive some visa requirements for highly-educated Russians wishing to flee Putin’s regime. 

“It’s important to make sure we get the details right, but this could be a one-two punch: Cripple Putin’s workforce and put Russia’s best tech minds to work innovating here for the good guys. The same type of play helped us win the Cold War.”
