Presidential Candidate Amy Klobuchar Wants to Return Refugee Admissions Numbers to pre-Trump Levels

John Binder at Breitbart reports in this not-so-surprising post.

But, if you missed it, first see my report at Frauds and Crooks about how the Senator had no interest in hearing the FBI testify in 2009 before the Senate on Somali Islamic radicalization in Minneapolis.

Where Was Amy Klobuchar That Day?

Amy Klobuchar Vows to Resettle 500 Percent More Refugees, None in Her Neighborhood

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is vowing to increase the number of refugees resettled in the United States by more than 500 percent if elected president, almost none of whom would likely be resettled in her neighborhood.

Perhaps the most hilarious hypocrite is Joe Biden  As one of the original designers of the Refugee Admissions Act of 1980, his home state of Delaware has only taken a couple hundred refugees at most since the law was signed by Jimmy Carter.  He says 125,000 is a good number for 2021 (if he makes it to the White House).
