Democrat Rep. Jamaal “pull the fire alarm” Bowman says Americans should “welcome” Palestinian refugees
Experts say that roughly one million people currently living in, but fleeing, the Gaza Strip will need new homes. And since they are not allowed to enter Israel, which surrounds them, these people should instead come to the United States, according to New York Rep. Jamaal “pull the fire alarm” Bowman, a Democrat.
In a statement to the media over the weekend, Bowman stated that “50 percent of the population in Gaza are children,” adding that “the international community, as well as the United States, should be prepared to welcome refugees from Palestine while being very careful to vet and not allow members of Hamas.”
Bowman’s statement on all this came after Israel gave the roughly 1.1 million residents of northern Gaza a 24-hour warning to get out before the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), backed by the United States and American tax dollars, commences its planned ground invasion of the Palestinian territory.
Rather than call on Israel to do no such thing and to simply leave Gaza alone, Bowman and others apparently want them all to be relocated to a neighborhood near you since Israel wants them away from its borders.

Republicans and Democrats call for more military aid to Israel, enforced sanctions on Iran
According to Israeli media, more than 400,000 Gazans have already left their homes, though it is unclear if they are actually out of Gaza entirely. Twenty-four hours, though, is hardly enough time for this very large number of people – Gaza is one of the most densely populated areas of the world – to flee, let alone find another place where they can actually keep living.
Egypt has closed its border with Gaza, refusing to take any Palestinian refugees. And Israel, of course, is saying get out to the roughly 2.3 million people who live in the Gaza Strip, which is where they were placed after Israel was reestablished as a nation in 1948.
UNICEF spokesperson Sara Al Hattab told CNN this week that ongoing Israeli airstrikes – the planned ground invasion has not yet occurred, by the way – have killed at least 2,215 Palestinians, including more than 700 children. Another 8,714 Palestinians, 2,450 of them being children, have been wounded by Israeli weapons of war so far in this latest melee.
By the time all is said and done, World Identity Foundation founder Mariana Dahan expects that the conflict “may add over one million people to the already staggering number of six million Palestinian refugees of the world.”
There are currently about 170,000 Palestinians living in the U.S., according to the latest census data. In 2022, the U.S. took in 25,465 refugees from all around the world, a 123 percent increase from 2021.
“In FY 2023, the United States expects to resettle up to 125,000 refugees,” reads the State Department website.
The establishment uni-party in the U.S., comprised of both Republicans and Democrats, is keeping itself busy pushing new legislation to give even more taxpayer money and military aid to Israel to fulfill its Zionist agenda in the Middle East.
Republicans, though, do not want any of the Palestinian refugees to be resettled in the U.S. as a result of the war they are helping to fund.
“The U.S. is the most generous nation in the world, but we are in no position to accept additional refugees, especially from a region with as high a risk of terrorism, given our nation’s inability to secure our own border or vet those who are already here,” pronounced Republican Florida Sen. Marco “foam boy” Rubio this week.
