Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly planning to double the number of refugees admitted into the United States despite the full-blown national security and humanitarian crisis that has erupted on the southern border under his administration.
The State Department said in a press release that the administration “recommends an increase in the refugee admissions target from 62,500 in Fiscal Year 2021 to 125,000 in Fiscal Year 2022 to address needs generated by humanitarian crises around the globe.”
“A robust refugee admissions program is critical to U.S. foreign policy interests and national security objectives, and is a reflection of core American values,” the administration claimed. “The United States has long been a global leader in refugee resettlement. The U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) reflects our tradition as a nation that has long welcomed immigrants and refugees. It is an important, enduring, and ongoing expression of our commitment to international humanitarian principles and reflects the best of America’s values and compassion.”
This is the same administration that told Cubans who were hoping to make a sea voyage to the U.S. in an attempt to flee the oppressive communist regime, “if you take to the Sea, you will not come to the United States.”
The announcement from the administration comes as they have faced a historic crisis on the U.S. southern border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring into border states every month.
The administration faced an additional crisis on the border as thousands of Haitians illegally entered the U.S. in the small Texas border town of Del Rio in a matter of several days. The situation in Del Rio is so dire that Rep. Tony Gonzalez (R-TX) said that there have been footage shortages at local grocery stores.
