Two Republican representatives will introduce a bill to forbid the United States from allowing any Palestinian refugees to enter the country, in the midst of the ongoing war in Israel.
As Fox News reports, Congressmen Tom Tiffany (R-Wisc.) and Andy Ogles (R-Tenn.) are set to introduce the Guaranteeing Aggressors Zero Admission Act, or the GAZA Act. The legislation will prohibit the Biden Administration from giving visas to anyone who holds a Palestinian passport, and would also forbid the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from allowing Palestinians into the country as a result of its parole program.
“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 on Twitter. “I introduced the GAZA Act to protect America’s national security.”
At the same time, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is preparing to introduce his own bill to force the Biden Administration to cancel all visas for any foreign nationals who “endorse or espouse terrorist activity.”
“America is the most generous nation on earth, but we cannot allow foreign nationals who support terrorist groups like Hamas and march in our streets calling for ‘intifada’ to enter or stay in our country,” said Rubio in a press release. “The Biden administration has the authority and an obligation under existing law to immediately identify, cancel the visas of, and remove foreign nationals already here in America who have demonstrated support for terrorist groups, and in many cases, even celebrated the slaughter of Israeli babies and the rape of Jewish girls.”
Over a week after the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas began its large-scale assault against Israel, Israeli forces have prepared for an equally massive retaliation in an effort to eliminate the terrorist group, which has been responsible for acts of violence against Israel for decades. Some have warned of the possible ramifications of a refugee crisis as a result of the violence, which could lead to as many as one million Palestinian refugees.
