'Squad' Members 'Horrified' by Plan to Halt Palestinian Immigration to US

Democrat ‘Squad’ members Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Andre Carson said they are “horrified” by GOP plans to stop Palestinian legal immigration to the United States.

The news comes after Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT) and other House Republicans introduced legislation to ban the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from handing out green cards, visas, and refugee status to Palestinians.

Zinke’s legislation would also revoke visas for Palestinians in the United States, making them eligible for deportation.

“This legislation keeps America safe,” Zinke said of the legislation.

“I don’t trust the Biden Administration any more than I do the Palestinian Authority to screen who is allowed to come into the United States.”

Tlaib and Omar issued a joint statement in response to Carson, calling the legislation “xenophobic, punitive, and [an] unconstitutional measure.”

They said:

“As the three Muslim Members of Congress, we are horrified by Rep. Ryan Zinke’s recently introduced bill to pause all visas, refugee status, and granting of asylum for individuals holding a passport issued by the Palestinian Authority indefinitely — and to revoke others,”

“Let’s be clear: using the full power of the state to target and persecute a particular ethnic group or nationality is fascism and pure bigotry.”

“This legislation—by a former cabinet official no less—directly violates the U.S. Constitution, and would illegally destroy the lives of the hundreds of thousands of Palestinian immigrants who live in and contribute to American society.”

“Though intended to target Muslims, this bill will also hurt Palestinian Christians, who will be targeted by these provisions.”

“History will harshly judge this xenophobic, punitive, and unconstitutional measure.”

“We call on the leadership of both parties to vocally and specifically condemn these comments and legislation, to make clear that anti-Muslim and anti-Arab hate has no place in our politics, and to name it when it happens.”

Brietbart reported:

Despite claims that Zinke’s legislation is “unconstitutional,” the Supreme Court ruled in Trump v. Hawaii that the president has extraordinarily broad discretion under 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f) to exclude aliens when he believes doing so is in the nation’s interests.
