Too Many Afghans and Not Enough Welfare For Them (and everyone else!)

Afghan evacuees arrive at Dulles near Washington, DC.

 

CBS posted a handy outline of the massive mess the Biden Administration has created by scooping up tens of thousands of Afghans who have really no legitimately determined immigration status in the US.

So, of course, Congress might have to change immigration law so that medical care, housing assistance, food stamps and cash assistance can be made available to them.

In the meantime, the Biden Administration will be going outside the law to find money (your money) to care for them.

This article is a must read for all of you interested in the tangled mess and it serves as a harbinger of the troubles your community is going to have with large numbers of unhappy evacuees who are going to be wanting stuff—decent housing in crime-free communities and a social safety net for months or even years to come.

By the way, in my first year of writing this blog—2007—there was an Iraqi boy, in Arizona I think, who penned a letter to a local paper and asked why the US would admit so many Iraqis that were then having a miserable life in America because there were too many to be properly cared for.  He asked, why not admit fewer so they could be happy instead of too many who were all subsequently unhappy?

I predict we are rapidly headed to a crisis we have never seen before because don’t forget we are also admitting hundreds of thousands across our southern border who have no approved reason to be here and who are expecting Americans to feed and clothe them.

All of those aliens combined with the Afghans and Biden’s promise for October 1 to begin admitting up to 125,000 refugees from other areas of the world is going to create the greatest drain on the American taxpayers we have likely ever seen, and the greatest chaos and tension in ‘welcoming’ communities as all of the competing migrants want stuff.

Here is the CBS story.  If you are really interested in what is happening, you should read it yourself.  I’m pulling out only a few nuggets of information I found most informative.

Once again, they are not legitimate REFUGEES, so try hard to simply call them evacuees, even as the mainstream media will try to firmly cement in your minds that they are legal refugees.

U.S. effort to resettle Afghan refugees faces major hurdles

The Biden administration’s plan to resettle tens of thousands of Afghan refugees is facing formidable operational and legal challenges, with issues ranging from the uncertain immigration status of many evacuees, to limited social resources and permanent housing for the new arrivals.

Thousands of at-risk Afghans are arriving in the U.S. without approved visas, placing them in legal limbo and rendering them ineligible for some federal social programs available to those admitted as refugees, including cash assistance and Medicaid.

The sharp increase in admissions of Afghan evacuees over the past few days has also strained the resources of the nine national U.S. refugee resettlement agencies***, prompting them to house some refugees in hotels and Airbnb rentals while affordable apartments are found, three resettlement officials told CBS News.

Since mid-August, the U.S. has admitted approximately 24,000 of the Afghans it evacuated from Kabul this summer ahead of the U.S. withdrawal. As of Thursday morning, more than 20,000 of them were being housed at eight military sites that have been chosen to temporarily host them, according to internal federal data reviewed by CBS News.

Another roughly 39,000 evacuees remained at military bases in Europe and the Middle East, including Afghans undergoing U.S. immigration processing and security vetting, the federal data showed.

Biden’s team is going “ad hoc” (a nice way of saying that they are going outside of existing law) to get the non-refugees their bennies.  

To address these exclusions, the State Department is launching an “Afghan Parolee Support Program,” which will help Afghan parolees with housing, transportation, food, cash, clothing, legal counsel and other services, according to multiple resettlement officials involved in the effort.

And, those religious charities (six of nine are supposedly religious)*** that resettle refugees on a per head basis will be getting paid as usual even as the evacuees are NOT refugees! Sounds illegal to me!

Resettlement agencies are expected to receive $2,275 for each Afghan parolee that they serve. However, parolees will only have access to the makeshift program for up to 90 days, so refugee advocates are now urging lawmakers to enact a legislative fix.

Congressmen Seth Moulton and Don Bacon, a bipartisan pair of former military officers, are planning to introduce a bill known as the WELCOME Act on Friday that would make Afghan parolees eligible for the same government benefits that traditional refugees receive, two congressional officials told CBS News.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Department of Health and Human Services is also considering creating an ad hoc program to temporarily cover medical services for parolees, two resettlement officials said.

There is so much information.  You should read it and book mark it for future reference.

Don’t miss the part about how they will not be sent back to Afghanistan even if they don’t get a favorable decision with their asylum claim or their security screening!

More than 23,000 are already on US soil!  See here.

*** These are the nine Leftwing federal resettlement contractors that are busy beavers right now as they juggle for position to be awarded their allotments of illegitimate ‘refugees’ (refugee industry watchers refer to the process as bidding for bodies).

  1. Recall in the early-’90s when the USSR collapsed and countless Russians ended up all over the United States — including 450,000 – 500,000 russian jews.

    Out of all the Russians brought/allowed into the US, it was only the jews who were immediately treated as asylum seekers – even though none had applied under such status and none were entitled to such status. Furthermore, they were granted full Social Security from US Citizens and Taxpayers, along with countless other benefits (which weren’t available for the other Russians).

    I was living in SEA at the time, and I recall how the Seattle Symphony’s conductor (Gerard Schwartz) was actually able to utilize the orchestra to sponsor thousands of those jews into the SEA area — and the orchestra was a taxpayer supported entity. Talk about 1st Amendment anti-establishment issues … not.

  2. Amazing how there’s always *plenty of $$$ for the EBT crowd, illegals and refugees yet seniors are told Social Security is bankrupt and benefits may be cut.

    *Don’t forget the goodies, trinkets and incentives handed out during an election cycle.

  3. Could you credit your stats? I see from Wikipedia (admittedly, not a primary source): 50,716 citizens of ex-USSR were granted political refugee status by the United States in 1990, 38,661 in 1991, 61,298 in 1992, 48,627 in 1993, 43,470 in 1994, 35,716 in 1995 with the trend steadily dropping to as low as 1,394 refugees accepted in 2003.

    Stats would likely cover the USSR, not Russia. The USSR used an uncommon definition of “Jew,” a marking of Hebrew ancestry in the internal passport, so “Jews” may well have been atheists or Christians for several generations. The US Census by law does not track religion, so it may be challenging to discover the data you mention.

    One of the cultural differences that I have seen in immigrant families is “early aging.” That is, the unhealthy lifestyle and family expectations for childcare lead to retirement from the workforce at 55, which was the age for retirement in the USSR. Further, the miniscule pensions from the USSR don’t transfer to the US. The US government claims to have welcone programs to help physicians and nurses recertify, but I was never able to get phone calls returned and the programs lacked interpreters. (I made these phone calls after learning that my son’s babysitter was an infectious disease physician.)

    The good news is–based on the Russian-language immigrant families I’ve met–is that within one generation, they are taxpayers. On the other hand, I’ve seen the next generation slack off, but that may reflect American culture.

    It is disconcerting to have our government impose unwelcome guests on us, but what is the point of maligning Jews from an immigration wave 30 years ago when that wave probably resulted in favorable outcomes? What’s startling me is the sheer numbers of people. I don’t recall how the Vietnamese wave fared. As an aside, I can compare the Afghan exodus to the Arab exodus from Mandatory Palestine in 1948. The UN took over and created a new agency (UNRWA), a new definition of generational refugees, and a system of camps/cities to house them for an indeterminate time, thus providing a worldview that those fleeing the new Jewish State need not and could not establish themselves elsewhere as citizens. Let’s hope the UN stays out of this: generational refugees/evacuees/migrants seem to live dissatisfied, without contributing, and depending on having victim status in order to continue to take support from the host country or the UN.

  4. The Democrat’s goal is staying in power no matter what the cost to the real American citizens, that is why millions of government “dole outs” is generously given to illegal migrants, evacuees and refugees at billions of costs to the tax payers. Yet, programs for American citizens, especially seniors who had worked for over 45 years or more,and paid taxes, are being taxed for their social security benefits. Sen. Joe Biden then, introduced taxing SS in 1983 at 50% and again on 1994 at 85% and now he wants it taxed at 100%….is he really that evil to starved our own seniors, yet give all kinds of free benefits to aliens? Senors on SS are still paying for their Medicare premium and their additional coverage to cover the hole. There’s hardly enough money for their rent and food, etc. Yet, this evil President can’t see his cruelty to our own seniors. He doesn’t feel the pinch because he got filthy rich in politics, but we all do. His new tax plan will also tax the equity on our homes at 50% whill rob us of whatever is left, not enough to take care of us n care homes…resulting to homelessness for seiors and dying on the streets of our cities. Trash All demonic Demoncrats in every election, if you are still a true American patriot. May God help all American Senior Citizens.
