One of the immediate effects of a Joe Biden presidency will be the near-complete reversal of President Donald Trump’s America First immigration policies, to include his administration’s approach to limiting the number of refugees allowed into the country.
At a time when Democratic and RINO governors are either continuing or reintroducing mandatory business closures and lockdowns because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Biden – upon taking office in January, if in fact he does pull off an electoral victory one way or another – will reinstitute refugee admission programs on a grand scale.
It will no doubt lead to exactly the kind of problems (violence and tribalism) that European countries are currently experiencing after allowing an influx of ‘culturally diverse’ refugees inside their borders.
PJ Media has more details:
Joe Biden told a Catholic refugee service in a pre-recorded message that he would return the United States to being “a beacon of hope for the downtrodden and the oppressed, a leader of resettling refugees in our humanitarian response.” He pledged to massively increase the U.S. refugee total to 125,000 his first year.
Biden has made the promise before, but not as president-elect. That number is slightly higher than the Obama administration’s twilight approval of 110,000 refugees from war and poverty fled their native countries seeking a better life in the West.
Mind you, once the third world hears that Biden has turned on the refugee spigot again, they’re going to flock to the United States (for freebies, our jobs, and our tax dollars). But who do you let in? Who do you not let in? And what will be Biden’s justification for these decisions?
Do you think our media will call him an insensitive racist bigot if, say, he refuses to let Middle East or African refugees come?
Plus, we know what policy Biden and his left-wing handlers will follow again: Anyone who manages to show up on our borders claiming refugee status will be immediately admitted, housed, cared for, and be put on a path to release (pending a hearing that is years in the future).
The Jerusalem Post adds:
President-elect Joe Biden reaffirmed his campaign promise to raise the US annual refugee admissions target to 125,000 on Thursday, Huff Post reported. This target is higher than the target of 110,000 admissions target approved by former president Barack Obama in 2016.
In a video recorded for the 40th anniversary of the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS), Biden said that “The US has long stood as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden and oppressed, a leader in resettling refugees, in our humanitarian response.” He then promised to “reclaim that proud legacy for our country.”
Americans are already among the most charitable people on the planet, if not the most charitable. But just as our military cannot be the world’s police (thank God for Trump not expanding our military presence around the world but actually curbing it), we cannot house all of the world’s poor and downtrodden.
We have to be sensible about our charity. But do you trust Biden and those left-wing sycophants pulling the strings of power behind his back to be sensible?
