House Republicans To Introduce Bill To Bar Palestinian Refugees From Entering U.S.


In the wake of the deadly attack on Israel, House Republicans plan to introduce a bill that will prevent Palestinian refugees from entering the United States.

Representatives Tom Tiffany (R-Wisc) and Andy Ogles (R-Tenn) will introduce the Guaranteeing Aggressors Zero Admission Act, or the GAZA Act, which will prevent the Biden administration from granting visas to holders of Palestinian passports.

Here’s a portion of the article on Fox News:

“We can’t let President Biden abuse our parole and visa rules to bring unvetted Palestinians into American communities the way he did with thousands of unvetted Afghans,” Tiffany said of the legislation in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The bill would also prohibit the Department of Homeland Security from allowing Palestinians into the country through its parole program.

According to the report, experts believe that there could be more than a million Palestinian refugees from Israel’s bombardment of Gaza.

“I introduced the GAZA Act to protect America’s national security,” Tiffany said.

The bill comes at the same time as Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., announced his intention to introduce legislation aimed at forcing the Biden administration to cancel visas for foreign nationals who “endorse or espouse terrorist activity.”

The country’s national security is already at risk with Biden allowing 100,000 Afghan refugees to settle in the U.S. in 2021.

According to the New York Post, experts say that more than a million such refugees could be created as Israel continues its bombardment of the Hamas-controlled enclave, one of those most densely populated regions in the world.

With Democrats predictably calling for the United States to admit refugees from Gaza, the bill will help reduce the chances of another terrorist attack on American soil.

Here is a portion of what was written in the New York Post:

Some Palestinians infamously celebrated the 9/11 attacks against the United States in their immediate aftermath, and democratically elected Hamas to lead them in 2006.

Far-left lawmakers, like New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and their allies have already begun saying the United States should take refugees from Gaza.

“The international community as well as the United States should be prepared to welcome refugees from Palestine while being very careful to vet and not allow members of Hamas,” Bowman told The Post.

If the Republicans want to pass the bill, they will have to elect a new Speaker of the House very soon.
