U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today introduced the “Guaranteeing Aggressors Zero Admission Act,” or the “GAZA Act,” which prevents the Biden administration from granting visas to holders of Palestinian Authority passports. Additionally, the bill would prevent the Department of Homeland Security from granting those individuals entry to the U.S. through the agency’s parole program.
“During my recent trip to the southern border, I learned that since October 1, Border Patrol encountered people from Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, among others. They apprehended more than 151 people whose names appeared on the terror watch list in fiscal year 2023. Given the recent terror attacks on Israel by Hamas, it is apparent that terrorists will stop at nothing to do harm to the United States and our allies. We must take every action necessary to protect the American people from these threats and force the Biden administration to close our borders to every possible threat to our national security,” Daines said.
