DeSantis Slams Biden For Secret Plan To Resettle Palestinians In US

After it was revealed that President Joe Biden has plans to bring Palestinians to resettle in the United States as refugees, likely with very little vetting, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) issued a strong statement against the plan.

In a recent report from CBS News, it was revealed that multiple federal agencies are weighing their options to “resettle Palestinians from Gaza” in the United States. According to the outlet, this would require significant cooperation from Egypt, which sits on the border of Gaza and has vehemently refused to take in any Palestinians — going so far as to build a large wall to keep them out.

If the Biden administration’s plans are successful, qualifying Palestinians would be flown into the U.S. with refugee status, which will lead to many taxpayer-funded benefits, including “permanent residency, resettlement benefits like housing assistance and a path to American citizenship,” according to CBS News.

Responding to this plan during a press conference on Wednesday, DeSantis stated that he didn’t think Biden was “crazy enough” to want to import Palestinians into the U.S., especially because the vast majority of them outright support terrorism and hate America.

In fact, a poll conducted at the beginning of November 2023 showed that 75% of Palestinians directly expressed support for the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks in Israel — where Hamas terrorists brutally massacred 1,000 innocents, injured thousands and kidnapped hundreds. The same poll showed that 97.6% of Palestinians had a very negative view of the U.S.

DeSantis pointed out that the Palestinian refugee resettlement plan “is not in this country’s interest” — pointing out that Palestinians have been “protesting in favor of Hamas terrorists,” the same people that murdered babies, assaulted women and executed elderly people.”

“And to take people from that part of the world and import those blood feuds to this country, that is not in your interest or your family’s interest,” he added. “We should not be importing people in from the Gaza Strip. And so I hope that that report is wrong. I think if he does that, it is not going to be something that benefits the United States of America. If anything, it’ll just exacerbate a lot of the problems that we’re seeing now.”

DeSantis also highlighted the increase in anti-Israel/pro-Palestine protests taking place across the U.S., noting that many of these protests have devolved into outright support for Hamas — which he declared to be a “sickness” that the U.S. needs to address.

“And so I think part of what we need to do to unify the country going forward is to have people that actually want to assimilate into America, that actually believe in our founding principles, not people that just want to replicate a lot of these blood feuds that we see in other parts of the world,” the Republican governor added. “So our view in Florida on bringing in people from Gaza is no, we do not want to do that here in the state of Florida.”
