John Kerry recently talked to CNN about guns and foreigners, specifically foreign exchange students.

From CNN, Students in other countries assessing where to study abroad are increasingly scared of coming to the United States because of gun violence, the nation’s top diplomat said Monday.

Speaking with CNN foreign affairs correspondent Jill Dougherty in Tokyo, Secretary of State John Kerry said he’d discussed the situation with officials there who said students felt unsafe in the United States.

“We had an interesting discussion about why fewer students are coming to, particularly from Japan, to study in the United States, and one of the responses I got from our officials from conversations with parents here is that they’re actually scared. They think they’re not safe in the United States and so they don’t come,” Kerry said.

It’s apparently not stopping the hundreds of thousands of people who illegally enter the US every year.

Maybe you should stick to foreign policy Mr. Kerry.
