Democratic leaders Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) are reportedly circulating a draft letter pressing the Biden regime to open the floodgates for Palestinian nationals to seek refuge in the United States. The draft letter, obtained by Daily Caller’s Chief National Correspondent, Henry Rodgers, explicitly calls on the administration to “designate the Palestinian territories for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and/or authorize Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Palestinians present in the United States.” TPS and DED are programs that offer temporary legal status to nationals from designated countries experiencing armed conflict, natural disasters, or other extraordinary conditions that prevent safe return. TPS provides work authorization and protection from deportation to people inside/arriving in the US, while the DED merely protects them from deportation. The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security designates eligible countries for TPS, while the President grants DED. Once the Biden regime approves this request, it will open the gates for millions of Palestinians to walk freely to the border and enter the US without facing deportation.
Polling in Gaza has found that from 68% to 89% of Palestinians support terror attacks on Israel and Jews. A poll conducted by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO) back in 2014 found that 89% of Palestinians support terror attacks against Israel. That is quite a majority. Today, the American left is calling on the United States to take in one million Palestinian refugees from Gaza. What could possibly go wrong?
The news that Democratic leaders are urging Joe Biden to bring in thousands of Palestinian nationals has sparked a national debate and generated mixed reactions across the country. This latest development comes at a time when immigration and border security have been major issues in the United States.
The proposal to designate the Palestinian territories for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and/or authorize Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Palestinians present in the United States has been met with both support and criticism. Advocates of the plan argue that it is a humanitarian gesture and a way to provide assistance to those in need, while critics raise concerns about national security and the potential impact on the American economy and society.
Proponents of the plan emphasize the importance of offering refuge to Palestinian nationals who are facing armed conflict, natural disasters, and other extraordinary conditions in their home country. They argue that the United States has a responsibility to provide assistance to those in need and that the TPS and DED programs are essential for protecting vulnerable populations.
On the other hand, opponents of the plan express worries about the potential risks and challenges associated with opening the doors to thousands of Palestinian refugees. They raise concerns about the screening and vetting process for individuals seeking refuge in the United States and the potential security threats that could arise from allowing large numbers of Palestinians to enter the country.
The debate over the proposal also extends to the political implications of the decision. Some argue that the plan to bring in Palestinian nationals is driven by partisan politics and is aimed at garnering support from certain voter demographics. Others believe that it is a genuine effort to address a humanitarian crisis and provide assistance to those in need.
As the discussion continues, it is clear that the issue of bringing in Palestinian refugees has sparked a heated debate and raised important questions about immigration, national security, and humanitarian assistance in the United States. The decision on whether to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and/or authorize Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Palestinians present in the United States will undoubtedly have significant implications for the country and its immigration policies.
