Biden May Begin Bringing Palestinian Refugees to the U.S.

While many Arab nations are refusing Palestinian refugees, Biden considers accepting them in the U.S. amid the violent anti-Israel protests.

Amid the fiery clashes on our college campuses, the Biden administration appears to be fanning the flames of division with remarkable zeal. CBS reports that the White House is now considering importing “certain Palestinians” to the U.S. as refugees—a decision poised to offer sanctuary to individuals fleeing Gaza’s conflict zones. However, one can’t help but see this as a potential recipe for deepening the societal turmoil we’re witnessing, mirroring the chaos of the 2020 BLM riots. It’s another election year and another round of intense socio-political strife is right on schedule.

Recent discussions among senior officials from various U.S. federal agencies have considered practical measures to resettle Palestinians from Gaza who have close relatives who are American citizens or permanent residents. One proposal includes utilizing the longstanding United States Refugee Admissions Program to admit Palestinians with U.S. connections who have managed to escape to Egypt. However, this plan hinges on cooperation with Egypt, which has so far been reluctant to accept a large influx from Gaza.

This initiative aligns with a pattern of controversial decisions by the current administration, such as the recent decision not to ban menthol cigarettes and a move to potentially reclassify marijuana to a less dangerous drug category, aimed at appealing to certain voters. Not to mention that over the past two years, the administration has openly welcomed millions of illegal immigrants. One has to ask, will President Biden ever prioritize the welfare of American citizens, or is every move he makes just a calculated bid for votes? His administration has been one blunder after another, and this latest news has only deepened the dissatisfaction many feel.

It’s increasingly clear that the needs and security of the American people seem to be secondary to political maneuvering and vote-chasing in the Biden playbook. Many argue that while the U.S. is prepared to accept Palestinian refugees, no Arab nations have stepped up to do the same. There is a reason why. This situation underscores Biden’s desperate efforts to retain the support of the ultra-left progressive wing of the Democrat party, which is sympathetic to Hamas, as their votes could be crucial in the upcoming November elections. As debates continue, this move by President Biden is seen as yet another decision to influence voter sentiment and secure electoral support even if it could significantly harm the state of our country.
