Top congressional Democrats are reportedly circulating a letter to President Joe Biden encouraging him to “designate the Palestinian territories for Temporary Protected Status,” thus allowing “foreign nationals” from those areas to stay in the U.S.
The draft letter, obtained by The Daily Caller, is reportedly backed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL).
Reporter Henry Rodgers said that the push from congressional Democrats was a call to “open the flood gates for Palestinians to come into the U.S.”
