Biden administration considering giving refugees from Gaza permanent safe haven in the U.S. with access to housing and a pathway to citizenship | 30 April 2024 | The Biden administration is considering allowing some Palestinians to come live in the United States as refugees.

If the administration goes ahead with this plan it would mark a major change in U.S. policy.
