Sens. J.D. Vance (R-OH), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rick Scott (R-FL) despatched a letter to President Joe Biden on Thursday, demanding that he not grant protected standing to Palestinian refugees, arguing it could function a “magnet for migration.”
Vance, Rubio, Lee, and Scott despatched their letter to Biden as leftist Democrats similar to Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) name on the forty sixth president to supply Palestinians dwelling within the United States Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
As Breitbart News immigration reporter John Binder has famous, this may make sure that these Palestinian refugees can’t be deported beneath most circumstances.
The 4 Senate Republicans referred to as on Biden to not present these potential refugees TPS or Deferred Enforced Departure (DED).
The conservatives demanded avoiding these actions to guard the lives of American residents:
As you recognize, DED and TPS make it tougher to take away eligible international nationals from our nation. In mild of the continued armed battle within the Gaza Strip, and associated home protests by international nationals from the area, Palestinian aliens shouldn’t be incentivized to journey to, or stay in, the United States. We ask that you just keep in mind your oath to guard the lives of American residents and never import a inhabitants of probably radicalized people into the United States.
Vance, Rubio, Lee, and Scott stated that granting Palestinians TPS would create yet one more pipeline for migration into the United States:
It is protected to imagine that a few of these rioters are in our nation legally as visitors, beneath one of many many provisions of the INA [Immigration and Nationality Act] that permit aliens into the United States on a non-permanent foundation. It can also be potential that a few of them are in our nation illegally. Granting violent protesters DED, figuring out many have expressed sympathy for a designated international terrorist group, can be a cataclysmic mistake. Such an order would delay the presence of those aliens, giving them extra time for intimidation, violence, and destruction. Additionally, designating the Palestinian territories for TPS would create a magnet for migration, drawing Palestinians into the United States with the promise of potential authorized standing. Such a designation would permit any Palestinian already right here to remain for an prolonged interval. [Emphasis added]
This wouldn’t be the primary time the Biden administration has resettled immigrants from harmful elements of the world.
Following the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden used his administration’s parole pipeline to resettle almost 100,000 Afghans throughout American communities — a lot of whom have been not interviewed in individual beforehand and who have been discovered to be linked to terrorism.
As Breitbart News reported, in Fiscal Year 2022 alone, Biden’s DHS gave inexperienced playing cards to about 63,000 authorized immigrants to completely resettle within the U.S. who arrived from international locations beforehand included in a nationwide journey ban listing because of their involvement with terrorism.
The lawmakers cited how bringing Palestinian refugees to Denmark led to larger crime and welfare dependency:
We want solely have a look at Denmark for an instance of how Palestinian migration can hurt a host nation. In 1992, 321 Palestinians have been granted residence permits by the Danish authorities. An August 2020 Danish authorities survey revealed that, 27 years after Palestinian refugees had been granted residence, a quarter of the 270 unique Palestinians nonetheless in Denmark had gone to jail, half had been charged fines or different penalties, and two-thirds have been on public welfare. The variety of Palestinians who would transfer to or stay within the United States following a grant of DED or TPS can be far bigger, multiplying the burden on our police and social providers—to not point out the menace to the general public order.
“For the sake of our fellow American citizens, we ask that you continue your policy of not providing DED and TPS to Palestinian migrants and instead identify and close any vectors for Palestinian migration to the United States,” Vance, Rubio, Lee, and Scott concluded of their letter to Biden. “In our humble opinion, we should be finding ways to reduce the number of terrorist sympathizers in America, not increase them.”
