Following the Biden-Harris administration’s disastrous dealing with of the scenario in Afghanistan, the pro-mass-migration left just isn’t permitting “a critical disaster to go to waste.” The novel leftists, together with members of the so-called “Squad” – all the time the cheerleaders of unchecked mass migration no matter circumstances – are profiting from the Afghanistan disaster to advantage sign and name for bringing in as many Afghans, and different nationals as effectively, into the U.S. as doable.
In an August 26 letter to President Biden, 66 congressional Democrats known as for the administration to boost the Fiscal Yr 2022 refugee admissions cap to “a minimum of 200,000.” The signatories embody Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia of Illinois, and Joaquin Castro of Texas. The letter additionally urges the White Home to “increase humanitarian parole to supply refuge to susceptible Afghans who’re in grave hazard following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.”
Furthermore, the representatives
point out Ethiopia, Lebanon, Haiti, and “local weather change,” demonstrating that
Afghanistan is serving as a pretext to a bigger importation of refugees from
everywhere in the world. And, characteristically, the unconventional leftist members of
Congress dismiss any skepticism in direction of their plan as “racist, virulent
anti-refugee and anti-immigrant sentiment,” and argue that the very best response is
to “double down on our efforts.”
Predictably, the letter
additionally fails to say Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, however
fairly argues that America should soak up as many refugees/evacuees as doable
due to “a 20-year U.S. army intervention and 40 years of U.S.
involvement within the conflict.” The Democratic representatives thus ignore the very fact
that our presence in Afghanistan didn’t materialize out of nothing, however,
fairly, was the direct results of the Taliban’s internet hosting of the unconventional Islamist
terrorist group al-Qaeda, answerable for the September 11, 2001 terrorist
Subsequently, the U.S.
was not an occupying energy in Afghanistan, however was aiding the Afghans
towards the Taliban. In addition they appear unaware that U.S. “involvement” in the course of the
Nineteen Eighties consisted of serving to Afghan anti-communist insurgents resist a Soviet
invasion. However why delve into historic context when it’s simpler to easily
blame America and use ethical blackmail to justify the mass migration agenda?
The next day, Consultant Omar additionally printed an op-ed on CNN, which emphasised the identical factors, however from a extra private perspective. The Somalia-born Omar, who initially got here to the U.S. together with her household as a baby refugee, urges that “[m]uch like we did within the wake of Vietnam, we should permit Afghan residents to to migrate right here instantly utilizing nationwide curiosity waivers and humanitarian parole,” and that “[w]e mustn’t let paperwork and paperwork be a loss of life sentence,” thereby seemingly suggesting that we permit in as many Afghans as doable with out doing the right and vital vetting. In any case, what might presumably go improper?
To Rep. Omar’s credit score,
she calls upon “our NATO allies and neighboring international locations to do their half,”
however she makes it clear that the U.S. should play the first position in internet hosting
Afghan refugees and evacuees. However wait, there’s extra, as a result of “Afghanistan is
not the one take a look at. Central America, Haiti, Syria, Libya, and international locations round
the world are presently dealing with large-scale human rights crises and wish our
assist.” And, in fact, there are additionally “local weather migrants.” She then asserts that
“[w]e needs to be main a worldwide migration compact, which would offer world
funding to handle the migrant disaster and set up clear benchmarks for every
nation to absorb refugees.” In different phrases, Ms. Omar needs to arm-twist
sovereign nations into kowtowing to the mass migration agenda.
However maybe essentially the most ironic a part of her op-ed is that Omar, a politician who has been accused of anti-Semitism, is framing skepticism in direction of mass migration and large-scale refugee resettlement as a repeat of “the nativism and hate that sentenced 1000’s of individuals to loss of life within the run-up to the Holocaust.” After all, this isn’t stunning as a result of the pro-mass-migration foyer routinely resorts to related strawman assaults to distract from the radicalism of their very own proposals.
The 2 above items – the letter signed by 66 congressional Democrats and the Omar op-ed – are a first-rate instance of the “let all of them in” left’s makes an attempt to mislead the American public by framing the difficulty in binary phrases: both permit a whole lot of 1000’s of individuals in the USA or you’re heartless and don’t care about refugees. This can be a false dichotomy. There is no such thing as a query that we must always assist sure Afghans who assisted us throughout our presence within the Central Asian nation. Those that fought towards the Taliban alongside us ought to obtain the Particular Immigrant Visas (SIVs) they had been promised. Others, together with those that supplied some form of materials assist to us, or would merely desire to not stay underneath the Taliban, must be helped nearer to their house. Thus, we must always negotiate with international locations within the area to host Afghan refugees whereas we – and our NATO allies – supply logistical and monetary help. That’s the technique to go if we wish to assist as many individuals as doable fairly than merely advantage sign or exploit the disaster to advertise the mass migration agenda.
