Biden Protects ‘Palestinian’ Illegal Aliens From Deportation

Terrorists are welcome.

Is there a major wave of terror in the Middle East? Are Hamas supporters marching through the streets of American cities while calling for Jihad? Sure, we can deport them, but instead Biden is protecting them from deportation.

Biden granted Palestinians in the United States temporary protection from deportation amid the ongoing conflict overseas, according to a new memo Wednesday.

The move comes as the White House faces immense pressure from the Arab-American community over the situation in Gaza.

Late last year, Democrats urged Biden to extend temporary protections to Palestinians in the US, arguing that those already in the country “should not be forced to return to the Palestinian territories, consistent with President Biden’s stated commitment to protecting Palestinian civilians.”

The president has discretion to authorize what’s known as deferred enforced departure, which protects those covered from removal from the US for a period of time. Those who qualify are also eligible for work permits.

This is a green light encouraging Arab Muslim settlers from the region to come to America. While the temporary protection from deportation is supposed to kick in only for those enemy aliens currently here, anyone who makes it across the border without being spotted can show up and claim that he was here all along.

The usual pro-terror lobby and its Democrat elected officials had been demanding TPS (Temporary Protected Status) for Arab Muslims operating in Judea and Samaria, Biden instead granted Deferred Enforced Departure (DED).

That’s the good news here. DED is arguably illegal, unlike TPS. It’s really similar to Obama’s DREAM amnesty. But the legal provisions for it are weaker and so accordingly DED recipients have a weaker case, but the pernicious thing about TPS is that it gets extended virtually endlessly. Some countries have had TPS status for decades, making for an illegal alien population that just moved here and will never leave.

The bad news about DED is that it can also be extended. While the DED status for the Pallies is currently at 18 months, that can be renewed and there will be pressure to renew it. For example, Liberia’s status has been under DED since 2007. At some point DED may transition to TPS and we’ll have an even larger domestic terrorist population.

The Case for Foreign National Deportation

Conditional citizenship is the only way to keep our Republic safe.

Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that he will rescind student visas of foreign nationals in the U.S. and deport them to their home countries if they expressed support for Hamas terrorists’ attack against Israel.

In unequivocal terms, the presidential hopeful made it clear that the United States had no place for terrorist-supporting foreign nationals attending U.S. colleges and universities, as many pro-Palestinian student groups at various institutions across the nation release statements and organize demonstrations endorsing Hamas’ largest attack against Israel in decades.

“You see students demonstrating in our country in favor of Hamas,” DeSantis said. “Remember, some of them are foreigners.”

DeSantis told them he will be “canceling your visa, and I’m sending you home” if he wins the presidency in 2024.

DeSantis’ statement comes against the backdrop of hundreds of pro-Hamas and Pro-Palestinian student rallies across the United States.

After the attack against Israel by Hamas on October 7, Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups released a statement signed by about 30 student organizations that read, “We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence.”

Students for Justice in Palestine chapters and other pro-Palestinian student groups at many other universities, including George Washington University, the University of Virginia, and the University of California, Berkley, also released similar statements on the weekend of Hamas’ attack.

Many other pro-Palestinian student groups at institutions across the U.S. still have their statements posted online and continue to participate in protests celebrating Hamas’ attack.

This is all reminiscent of Britain in 2019. In that year Britain stripped ISIS terrorist Jack Letts (known as Jihad Jack) of his British citizenship. Letts also possessed Canadian citizenship. Since the Islamic State fell in March of 2019, Britain faced the horrific possibility of scores of ISIS terrorists returning to the UK. Letts had travelled to Syria when ISIS declared its “caliphate” in 2014; there he admitted to fighting on the frontline with SIS and offered himself as a suicide bomber. After being wounded, he grew disillusioned with ISIS.

He had stated that he hated his family for the sake of Allah, and that he was an enemy of the West, and that he wanted to decapitate a British soldier. The British people have never forgotten the perils of returning UK citizens who are also terrorists. Salman Abebi was allowed back into the UK after living in a war zone with his family. After returning to England he detonated a suicide bomb that claimed the lives of 22 people in Manchester. The youngest victim was only 8 years old.

Earlier in the year the UK government also stripped Shamima Begum of her citizenship after she left her home in East London in 2015 at the age of 15 and married an Islamic fighter in Syria. No one forced her to marry and leave the UK.

In the case of Jihad Jack in England and the revocation of his citizenship, and of Shamima Begum, we should be impelled to think about the conditions and circumstances in the United States that legitimize DeSantis’ intentions. One ought to be grateful to the United States for the privilege of being a student here. By what infernal impertinence would one dare aspire to be in America and espouse support of her sworn enemies? Let us remember that the Charter/Covenant of Hamas not only calls for the elimination of Jewry from the region and the world, and the obliteration of Israel. It calls for the establishment of a Global Caliphate which would see—among other horrific occurrences—the destruction of Christianity and Judaism from the United States.

America will produce its own homegrown terrorists. Why would we import and support foreign nationals who come with a burning hatred of this country that runs so deep they would support terrorist groups that seek the destruction of the West – Israel and the United States in particular?

When I applied for US citizenship after years of being a legal immigrant by virtue of having a green card, I was asked a few citizenship-disqualifying questions. One was whether I had ever been a member of any communist party in the United States; the other was if I had ever advocated and practiced polygamy. These questions were important ones. Polygamy challenged the fundamental tenets of the version of Judeo-Christianity on which most American religious values were based. Communism was and remains inimical to the political and economic DNA of this country. Its political antipode—capitalism—is the bedrock on which our socio-political and economic systems are derived. To promote the antithesis of such foundational systems would be to destroy the United States as we know it and as it ought to be.

I might go further than DeSantis. I would call for the revocation of citizenship of naturalized persons who not only support Hamas, the Taliban, and communism but who, by whatever means and through whatever medium, communicate a deep hatred for the United States.

We are in the midst of a civilizational crisis. It is time to close ranks and revert to type – that is, revert to being patriotic Americans. The right to demean and belittle the United States is not the first right granted to foreign nationals when they are graciously allowed on American soil. Given the war on the West, and the attacks on American civilization on so many fronts, I would recommend that each foreign national student be thoroughly vetted for any anti-American sentiments before entrance into our universities. They must sign a loyalty oath mandating them to defend—if called upon to do so—the reputation of the United States which has granted them refuge, an education, and a chance to make something of their lives which most of them were denied in their home countries. And let us not forget one thing: immigration is not a right; it is a privilege.

If we made naturalized citizenship conditional by literally requiring aspiring citizens to sign a pledge of allegiance and something on the order of a non-disclosure clause that prohibits them from making, not legitimate and rational criticisms of the state but rather, hateful invectives against our republic, we might see a reduction in the proclivities for defamation and destruction among many naturalized immigrants from certain groups who use and abuse this country, who become Americans or permanent residents for reasons of political and economic expediency—such as the 9-11 terrorists.

The time has come for great purges because in a civilizational war when the enemies announce themselves in the open and act with impunity, we must act in the spirit of self-preservation and exercise justice. Why should Americans live in fear of foreign nationals, supercilious young people, many of whom can barely write a term paper, but who want to dictate the terms of our domestic and foreign policy? By what right?

The recommendations laid out here call for a massive re-examination of our refugee and immigration policies. We not only need skilled and growth-enhancing immigrants, we need patriots—folks who love America before they even arrive on her shores. We want immigrants who are assimilable and willing to adapt themselves to American culture and values and to grow into becoming Americans. People who, in the end, will see no distinction between their moral identities and their American identities. These are the vanguards and sentinels who will help us rebuild our crumbling civilization and defeat the nihilists and value junkies from assuming ascendancy in our country.

If such recommendations seem harsh, look around you and consider the results. If you feel fearful of posting your value-laden views on social media for fear that you could be harmed by any sinister monster lurking in the shadows, ask yourself: Why? Why should our universities be the breeding ground for hatred, for bullying, for the celebration of the murder of innocent victims? Why should the universities and their students contribute to radicalism, anti-Semitism, and anti-Americanism at the expense of the American people? And why should the visitors to our country, or those on whom citizenship was bestowed as a gift, start dictating the terms of their visit, and be given the freedom to participate in rewriting the American narrative which then determines a redefined way of life for us? One alien to the essence of who we are.

When guests in your own country begin to make you feel as if you cannot understand the order of your home any longer, then, in the words of the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Schold—“Unfortunately, they cannot stay.”

HOMESCHOOL LEGAL DEFENSE: The Romeike family is facing deportation and renewed persecution for their religious beliefs in Germany. And there’s something you can do to help.

HOMESCHOOL LEGAL DEFENSE

SEE OUR PREVIOUS POSTS: https://ratherexposethem.org/?s=Romeike+family+

We’re working to ensure the Romeikes can remain in the US and homeschool in peace, and a critical part of that effort is a petition we’ve created asking the Biden administration to intervene.

We need at least 100,000 signatures in order to have the best chance of reaching the White House. Please consider signing the petition and voicing your support for the Romeike family’s right to follow their deeply held religious convictions.


Since we created the petition, the Romeikes’ story has begun to receive national news coverage. Fox News, the Daily Mail, and National Review are covering the story.

With this momentum in the press and your signature, we can have a big impact when we deliver a show of support to the White House and to Congress—hopefully by the first week of October.


Here's more context to the Romeike Story.


When Uwe and Hannelore Romeike decided that God was calling them to homeschool their five children in 2006, Germany responded swiftly by leveling fines that exceeded the family’s income, forcibly removing the children from the home, and threatening to take them permanently.

So the Romeikes fled to America, where we helped them apply for asylum. In 2013, after five years of legal battles and a growing public outcry, the United States government granted the Romeikes “indefinitely deferred action status,” which allowed them to live, work, and remain safely in the United States without fear of deportation.


Then it all changed.


Then, in September 2023, the Romeikes were told during a routine check-in that their deferred status had been revoked. The family was given four weeks to apply for German passports, so they could be deported to Germany. The family had no prior warning, and was offered no explanation, other than that there had been a “change of orders.”

More developments are coming, so watch your email this week as we share additional ways you can help our friends stay in the country and homeschool in peace.

Thank you!

James R. Mason, HSLDA President
