HAMAS HOLDOUTS: Guess Which Two Dems Voted Against a Bill to Ban Hamas Terrorists from the US

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.01.24

It was unanimous … almost.

Squad Dems Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush were the only two holdouts who voted against a bill barring Hamas terrorists from entering the United States.

The bill, HR 6679, which was also called the “No Immigration Benefits for Hamas Terrorists Act,” expanded a U.S. ban on Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) officers to include all PLO members.

The bill, which was introduced by Rep. Tom McClintock (R-PA), also barred Hamas members and other participants in the Oct. 7 attack from the U.S.

“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.

422 House members voted for the bill. Tlaib and Bush voted against it, with Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-IL) voting “present.”

Tlaib released a statement claiming the GOP is trying to incite hatred with the bill.

“H.R. 6679 is unnecessary because it is redundant with already existing federal law,” Tlaib said. It’s just another GOP messaging bill being used to incite anti-Arab, anti-Palestinian, and anti-Muslim hatred that makes communities like ours unsafe,” the Democrat representative said.

Ramirez claims she voted “present” because she’s done with “political games.”

“I voted present  because I am done with political games,” Ramirez said. “The majority is wasting time bringing a bill that is already current law. There are already no immigration benefits for Hamas terrorists.

“After participating for 15 hours of a sham impeachment, I could not stomach another bill only introduced to score cheap political points, politicize immigration, and divide our communities. Like the Republican’s sham impeachment, this bill does not meaningfully address border security nor further protect our communities. H.R.6679 is unnecessary,” Ramirez said. “It’s a waste of resources and time. And I’m not playing along.”
