The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has put a pro-Hamas radical, Nejwa Ali, on leave after her extremist, pro-Hamas and Israel-hating social media posts were widely circulated.
Ali was hired by DHS in 2019 after working as a public affairs officer for the Palestinian Delegation to the U.S. (the PLO.)
In January, a report shared she was hired as “an Adjudication Officer for the U.S. Customs and Immigration Service (CIS).”
“Though Ali’s job at DHS included vetting people to make sure they were not a threat to the country before letting them in, it’s not clear that anyone from the agency vetted her. That her primary allegiance was to the Palestinians, not the United States, was evident from her social media profiles, where she posts as ‘Falastine Mi Amor.’”
In case you’re still wondering who’s freely crossing our border…

Her position at DHS, however, did not reduce her online hate.
The Daily Wire shared that she was “repeatedly posting pictures of Hamas terrorists parachuting in with guns and writing, “f*** Israel and any Jew who supports Israel.”
One of the more disturbing images shared by Ali was a graphic of terrorists parachuting with the words “Free Palestine” below.
The image draws parallels to the moment when Hamas terrorists flew in on paraglides to slaughter young people attending a Peace Concert at Kibbutz Urim.
DHS spokesman Matthew Bourke emailed the Washington Examiner’s Gabe Kaminsky regarding Ali, stating, “This individual has been placed on administrative leave.”
Bourke also spoke with Newsweek to confirm the news, but did not elaborate on how long or what other disciplinary actions might be on the table.
“USCIS strongly condemns antisemitism and the use of violent rhetoric in any form,” Bourke said. “USCIS employees are held to high ethical standards both on and off duty, including their presence on social media. Any violation of these standards is taken seriously by the agency.”
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) posted a copy of a letter he wrote to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on X asking for answers about what cases Ali has reviewed in her role as adjudication officer.
Pointing out that one of Ali’s social media posts includes the hashtags “#asylumseekers #palestine #refugeeswelcome,” Hawley questions whether that she might make decisions in her official role that allows preference for “certain immigration cases over others at DHS.”
