Pro-Terror Squad: Members Vote Against Bill to Keep Hamas Terrorists Out of the U.S.

Reps. Cori Bush and Rashida Tlaib, both members of the “Squad,” were the only representatives to vote against HR 6679, a bill preventing Hamas terrorists from entering the U.S. The legislation extended the ban on Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) officers to include all PLO members and specifically targeted those involved in the October 7 attack on Israel. While 422 members of the House voted in favor, the two Democrats opposed it, with Rep. Delia Ramirez voting present.

“Any alien who carried out, participated in, planned, financed, afforded material support to, or otherwise facilitated any of the attacks against Israel initiated by Hamas beginning on October 7, 2023, is inadmissible,” the bill states.

Tlaib criticized the bill, deeming it redundant and accused Republicans of using it to incite hatred somehow, claiming with no evidence that it targeted Arab, Palestinian, and Muslim communities. Ramirez voted present, expressing frustration with what she perceived as political games and a waste of resources.

The three Democrats are part of a vocal minority critical of Israel. Tlaib faced controversy for condemning Israel based on a discredited claim about a Gaza hospital airstrike, countered by U.S. intelligence attributing the blast to a Palestinian rocket.

Their votes against a bill addressing potential security concerns raised questions about their stance on individuals associated with terrorist attacks. The representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
