The US House of Representatives has reportedly passed a funding request by President Barack Obama which would provide over $20 million to facilitate the resettlement of Gazans to the US, a move some are worried could allow the infiltration of dozens of Hamas supporters into America. H.R. 1388 was recently adopted based on a “presidential determination” made last January, at the end of the IDF’s Operation Cast Lead and as one of Obama’s first acts in office, that the funds were urgently needed for “migration assistance” to the Palestinian refugees and “conflict victims” in Gaza. Some are concerned the monies will be used to assist Gazans to immigrate to the US, including members and sympathizers of Hamas, which won the majority of votes in Gaza in the 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections.
