President Joe Biden is reportedly considering bringing Palestinians to the United States as refugees as he looks to assuage the anger he faces from anti-Semites within his own party who are angry about his administration’s support for Israel in its war against Hamas.

CBS News reported that several federal agencies have weighed various options for how to “resettle Palestinians from Gaza” inside the U.S.

“One of those proposals involves using the decades-old United States Refugee Admissions Program to welcome Palestinians with U.S. ties who have managed to escape Gaza and enter neighboring Egypt,” the report said, while another plan would get “additional Palestinians out of Gaza and processing them as refugees if they have American relatives.”

The administration would have to rely on Egypt helping with the plan even though the country has refused to take in Palestinians and has erected a large wall to keep them out of Egypt.

Those who qualify would be flown to the U.S. with refugee status, the report said, which entitles them to “permanent residency, resettlement benefits like housing assistance and a path to American citizenship.”

The report comes after polling conducted after the October 7 terrorist attack showed that the majority of Palestinians hate the U.S. and they support terrorist attacks.


The poll from the Arab World for Research and Development found the following:

  • 98% say that their “sense of pride as a Palestinian” has increased since the terrorist attacks, including 94.3% who said that they felt that way to a “great extent.”
  • 75% of Palestinians directly said that they supported the brutal October 7 terrorist attacks — in which babies were beheaded or burned alive in ovens, entire families were massacred, women and young girls were violently raped, soldiers beheaded, and more — against Israel. 59.3% said that they “extremely support[ed]” the attacks.
  • 76% said that they viewed the Hamas terrorist organization positively while only 22.3% viewed Hamas negatively.
  • 97.3% viewed Israel very negatively.
  • 97.6% viewed the U.S. very negatively.
  • 84.2% viewed the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization positively.
