As things are falling apart in Afghanistan, calls are growing in some corners for America to take in a massive number of refugees.
While Americans are very compassionate people, there are valid concerns.
Tucker spoke about this issue in a very head-on way during a recent monologue.
Here’s a partial transcript via FOX News:
Tucker Carlson: We don’t know who the Afghan refugees are
In the middle of the night, last month, Bagram Airbase — about thirty miles north of Kabul — plunged into darkness. Nothing like this had ever happened before. Bagram is more than an airbase, it is an enormous place, the size of a small town. The base has a hospital, shops, gyms, two runways, and rows of hangers, barracks. As of last month, Bagram also had a prison, which held thousands of foreign fighters, including from ISIS and the Taliban. Then, all of sudden, for the first time in twenty years, the lights at Bagram went out.
The locals immediately understood what was going on. Without warning or even a courtesy notification, the U.S. military just left. Split in the middle of the night, and turned the power off as they did. The base’s new Afghan commander fled too. Within minutes, looters descended on the base.
They found thousands of vehicles, hundreds of them armored, as well as huge caches of weapons and ammunition. The Pentagon didn’t seem concerned. Mark Milley, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, had already explained that quote, “Bagram is not necessary tactically for what we are going to do in Afghanistan.”…
Who exactly are these Afghans, many of whom are on their way here? The truth is, despite what they’re telling you, we have no real idea. We don’t know. We just learned, for example, that at least 100 of the refugees U.S. military has flown out of Kabul — people we’re told are heroes — are in fact on terror watch lists.

These are valid concerns and yet people in Washington are not addressing them to the American people.
This needs to be looked into.
