Joe Biden ran on coronavirus. He claimed that Trump has not done enough to keep Americans safe.
Yet now Joe Biden is already talking about increasing the number of refugees into the United States in a massive surge.
How exactly does this make Americans more safe from COVID?
The Daily Wire reports:
Biden Will Raise Number Of Refugees Admitted To U.S. From 15K to 125K
On Thursday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reiterated that he would raise the number of refugees permitted to enter the United States from the 15,000 President Trump wants to permit annually to 125,000 in a Biden first year in office.
In a prerecorded video to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Jesuit Refugee Service, Biden stated, “The Biden-Harris administration will restore America’s historic role in protecting the vulnerable and defending the rights of refugees everywhere and raising our annual refugee admission target to 125,000,” as ReligionNews.com reported.
In June, Biden released a statement on World Refugee Day in which he attacked President Trump for his “heartless” policies, writing:
As President, I will increase the number of refugees we welcome into this country, setting an annual global refugee target of 125,000 — up from a ceiling of 18,000 under Trump — and will seek to further raise it over time commensurate with our responsibility, our values, and the unprecedented global need.
This would be an increase of 800 percent.
Joe Biden told the Jesuit Refugee Service this week that he plans to drastically increase the annual number of refugees taken in by the United States by over 800 percent of current figures.
While the Trump administration established a ceiling of 15,000 refugees for the current fiscal year, Biden said Thursday that he will raise that number to 125,000, Religion News Service (RNS) reported.
“The United States has long stood as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden and the oppressed, a leader of resettling refugees in our humanitarian response,” Biden said in a prerecorded video for a virtual celebration of the 40th anniversary of Jesuit Refugee Service.
Many people have suggested that this would be nothing more than a Democrat voter drive.
