On Wednesday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that his state would not be supported President Biden’s goal of bringing Palestinians to the United States as refugees.  

According to CBS News, several federal agencies have weighed various options for how to “resettle Palestinians from Gaza” inside the United States. 

The plan relies on cooperation from Egypt, despite Egypt’s refusal to take in Palestinians. In fact, Egypt has constructed a wall to keep Palestinians out of their country.  

Under Biden’s plan, qualifying individuals would be flown to the U.S. with refugee status, which entitles them to “permanent residency, resettlement benefits like housing assistance and a path to American citizenship.” 

DeSantis address the plan during a press conference, saying that he didn’t think Biden is “crazy enough” to want to import Palestinians into the country. 

“That is not in this country’s interest,” he said. “What we’ve seen over there — and we’ve seen the reflections in our own society of people out protesting in favor of Hamas terrorists, these are people that cooked babies in ovens while they were raping the baby’s mothers, executing elderly people — we forget about what happened that day on October 7.” 

“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 continued. “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 called what was happening on college campuses a “sickness” that needs to be dealt with. 

“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,” he said. “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.”
