They anticipate the immediate arrival of the promised 125,000 refugees to America. But, heck I am thinking that they don’t even need more immigrant voters when they can just make up any needed votes by distributing millions of ballots in key cities!
I’ll report as the refugee contractors come in with expressions of joy over the media’s pronouncement of a Biden/Harris victory.
See yesterday’s post–Over 27,000 from Muslim ban countries in the pipeline for immediate resettlement.
First up is Mark Hetfield at HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society).
Congratulations to President-Elect Joe Biden
After a tense nationwide wait since Election Day, HIAS congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
“The election of Joseph Biden marks a return to (American) values, an acknowledgement that refugees and immigrants have always been a benefit, not a burden to our great country,” HIAS President and CEO Mark Hetfield said in a special video message.
“HIAS looks forward to building back better the U.S. refugee resettlement program in partnership with the U.S. government, and to restoring America’s rightful place in the world as a leader for people seeking asylum and for human rights,” Hetfield continued, “but we also do need to acknowledge that the closeness of this election and the incredible level of support that both candidates received, demonstrates that America remains a highly polarized and divided country.”
Biden has a proven track record of standing for refugees, Hetfield said in a written statement. As a Senator, Biden co-sponsored The Refugee Act of 1980, which codified the U.S. refugee resettlement program and asylum system.
Biden also has made a number of promises to undo some of the anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration.
“Mr. Biden has pledged to return to normal and resettle 125,000 refugees a year in our country; to end the harmful Remain in Mexico policy that has stranded thousands of people at our Southern border; and to reunite the 545 children still separated from their parents as a result of the current administration’s practice of taking children — including babies and toddlers — from their asylum-seeking parents,” Hetfield said in the statement.
I have a huge archive on HIAS as they were a leading US taxpayer-funded ‘non-profit’ working tirelessly from before Trump won the White House to defeat him.
With 70 million Americans now on record to oppose Biden/Harris and their plans to open American borders, no doubt HIAS will have a harder time placing refugees in certain US towns and cities (assuming Biden and Harris are actually legally certified).
