Republicans Seek to Block Biden from Giving Quasi-Amnesty to Palestinians

John Binder, Breitbart, November 1, 2023

Reps. Andy Ogles (R-TN) and Tom Tiffany (R-WI) are introducing legislation that would block President Joe Biden from giving Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a quasi-amnesty program, to Palestinians amid war in Israel.


As Breitbart News has chronicled, Biden has hugely expanded TPS during his tenure thus far. Today, DHS offers TPS to more than a million foreign nationals, who would otherwise be illegal aliens, which allows them to remain in the U.S. and hold American jobs.

“The Biden administration has routinely abused TPS to allow thousands of illegal aliens to remain in America indefinitely,” Tiffany said. “This bill will help ensure that they cannot use it to provide the same de facto amnesty to Palestinians. We need to put the security of the American people first.”


Ogles and Tiffany are also sponsoring legislation to prioritize the deportation of Palestinian illegal aliens living in the U.S. as well as the “GAZA Act” which prevents Biden from importing Palestinians to American communities via the refugee resettlement program or its parole pipeline.
