US Rep. Ryan Zinke introduced a bill on Thursday that could prevent Palestinians from entering the United States, and also expel those who already reside there, the US political website The Hill reported on Friday. 

Zinke, who served as secretary of the Interior Department in the Trump Administration, reportedly introduced a bill called the Safeguarding Americans from Extremism Act.

“The bill would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to halt granting visas, asylum and refuge for people who have a Palestinian Authority-issued passport. The bill would revoke the entrance or visa for individuals who came to the U.S. after Oct. 1,” The Hill reported.

The website quoted Zinke as saying that “this legislation keeps America safe.” 

“I don’t trust the Biden Administration any more than I do the Palestinian Authority to screen who is allowed to come into the United States. This is the most anti-Hamas immigration legislation I have seen and it’s well deserved,” Zinke added, according to The Hill.

Zinke’s bill reportedly has 10 co-sponsors so far:  Reps. Andy Harris (R-Md.), Aaron Bean (R-Fla.), Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), Clay Higgins (R-La.), Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Barry Moore (R-Ala.), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.)
