On Wednesday, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) introduced the “Guarding American Zones Against Palestinian Immigration Act” (GAZA Act), which places a two-year moratorium on immigration from the Palestinian Authority to the United States. The legislation is co-sponsored by Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Mary Miller (R-IL), and Eli Crane (R-AZ).

Since the horrific October 7, 2023, attack on the state of Israel, the territory of the Palestinian Authority, including the Gaza Strip, has been a hotbed of violence and crime. Many American allies, including Israel, Egypt, and Jordan, have deemed Palestinian refugees to be dangerous and refused responsibility for accepting them. However, the Biden administration is considering allowing these refugees to come to the United States.

“If Palestinian refugees are too dangerous for our allies in the region, they are certainly too dangerous for the United States. The Biden administration’s border policies have already exacerbated national security concerns across our country.

A two-year moratorium on all immigration from Palestine is a common-sense measure to ensure the safety and security of the American people. We must prioritize the protection of our nation and its citizens above all else,” said Congressman Gaetz.
