The following article, Watch: AOC Suggests Americans Should Accept Millions of Palestinian Refugees, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York wants Palestinian refugees to be accepted into America.
“However, that does not abdicate the United States from our historic role that we’ve played in the world of accepting refugees and allowing people to restart their lives here,” she said.

Fellow member of the House “squad” of progressives Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York had similar thoughts.
“Fifty percent of the population in Gaza are children. 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,” he said, according to the New York Post.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida said the concept is fatally flawed.
“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,” Rubio said.
In an Op-Ed for GBNews, England’s Nigel Farage outlined the logic against bringing Palestinian refugees to the West.
Farage noted that leaders in Arab countries have said they do not want to take in refugees from Gaza, citing Egypt and Jordan.
“[L]et’s remind ourselves, shall we, that Saudi Arabia did not take a single refugee from Syria because they were worried it would affect their culture and their safety in Saudi Arabia. These are words that maybe we ought to listen to,” Farage wrote.
Egypt and other Arab states won’t take any refugees from Gaza because they don’t want to import terrorism.
If their neighbours aren’t prepared to take any, I don’t see why we should either.

Farage noted that it was bad enough that “people who live within our communities, but have a different set of values to those of the more settled population, have been out, in some cases openly celebrating terrorist atrocities.”
Farage wrote that he would ask “anyone that thinks we should take large numbers of people from Gaza, why on earth should we risk our national security? Frankly, it doesn’t make sense.”

“The average person in Gaza that’s been taught to hate Jews, you know, their view is they don’t necessarily want their own state. What they seek is the destruction of the Jewish state. And that is not limited to Hamas. That is a widespread, deeply embedded belief amongst Palestinian Arabs in the Gaza Strip,” DeSantis said.
