Eunuch Alert: Ben Sasse is Pushing for the Importation of Afghan Refugees

Ben Sasse declared on August 22, 2021 that Afghan refugees are “welcome” in his neighborhood. 

In an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Sasse said that America is obligated to import 60,000 to 80,000 Afghans to the US for permanent resettlement.

“We’re talking about heroes who fought with us to take the fight to Al Qaeda and the Taliban,” Sasse declared. John Binder of Breitbart News pointed out that Sasse was referring to “the thousands of Afghans applying for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs) and P-2 visas.”

Sasse criticized the Biden administration for not moving fast enough to resettle migrants, declaring:

Number two, the administration has been way too slow to get people out of harm’s way. They can get them to Kuwait, they can get them to Qatar, they can get them to Bahrain, they can get them to Ramstein in Germany and sort through the larger processing and bureaucratic issues there. 

Sasse also added that “when you fought on behalf of Americans to protect our people, you’re welcome in my neighborhood”, implying that he wants the Biden administration to import refugees. 

Binder listed off the Republican governors who called on Biden to resettle Afghans in their states:

Thus far, at least 10 Republican governors have urged Biden to resettle Afghans in their states, including South Carolina’s Henry McMaster, Maryland’s Larry Hogan, Massachusetts’ Charlie Baker, Utah’s Spencer Cox, Georgia’s Brian Kemp, Arkansas’ Asa Hutchinson, Arizona’s Doug Ducey, Iowa’s Kim Reynolds, Oklahoma’s Kevin Stitts, and Vermont’s Phil Scott.

It’s truly bizarre how the Biden administration and the DC establishment is prioritizing the resettlement of Afghan nationals over the evacuation of thousands of American citizens in Afghanistan. 

Binder called attention to the fact that the refugee numbers could actually be quite larger than expected:

While Pentagon officials have said about 22,000 Afghans will be resettled in the U.S., that total only accounts of translators and interpreters applying for SIVs and does not include the family members of those applicants who are also eligible for resettlement. Biden has suggested that, in total, up to 65,000 Afghans will come to the U.S.

This evacuation process is a disaster and also showcases the depravity of the American ruling class who is more concerned with the interests of other countries and their citizens as opposed to the interests of American citizens.

In a saner political environment, the US would be working with other Islamic countries to resettle Afghans in locations that are more culturally and religious compatible with them.
