    Trump aides aim to build GOP opposition to Afghan refugees

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As tens of thousands of Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban arrive in the U.S., a handful of former Trump administration officials are working to turn Republicans against them.

    The former officials are writing position papers, appearing on conservative television outlets and meeting privately with GOP lawmakers — all in an effort to turn the collapse of Afghanistan into another opportunity to push a hard-line immigration agenda.

    “It is a collaboration based on mutual conviction,” said Stephen Miller, the architect of President Donald Trump’s most conservative immigration policies and among those engaged on the issue. “My emphasis has been in talking to members of Congress to build support for opposing the Biden administration's overall refugee plans."

    The sooner the Republicans are free of Trump and trumpism, the better for them and all of America. We don't need more xenophobia among conservatives. The Republican Party sure doesn't need that if it's to be a viable party and its members are govern responsibly and compassionately, and we don't need Republican citizens to be whipped up into another frenzy of xenophobic hatred and fear that can only lead to misery, if not worse, for themselves and the people they're being manipulated into fearing and hating.

    Considering that...
    1. They will consume billions in 'welfare' dollars over the next decade.
    2. They cant be vetted and in many cases wont even attempt to be.
    3. We're still in the middle of a pandemic.
    4. We have millions of homeless citizens.
    5. We've had enough replacements inundate America already.
    Yea, people should oppose """""refugees""""".

    There is a sponsorship program that allows you to bring them into your own home and help them transition into our society. How many do you want?

    If my crummy little swamp shack had the capacity, I'd be happy to help.

    How it feel knowing they'll be getting free housing, free transportation, free clothing, free food, free internet, free cell phones, free healthcare, free school, and straight up free cash for 8 years minimum before even a single dime's worth of free **** can even be reduced?

    Good for them. It would be tragic to bring them over here, dump them on the street and say "good luck!"

    So you don't have room for them? What's wrong with a bunk bed?

    How about pay Mexico to take them.


    One almost even has to wonder whether the Biden Administration intentionally let Afghanistan fall to ensure a healthy supply of refugees - one the Republicans couldn't even say no to because they had been US allies and refusing to get them out would be letting them down and betraying them.

    We have our lowest birth rate in our history, we have an ever aging population and declining population, we need immigrants regardless of their birth origins far more than they need us.

    You want them here for what reason(s)? The Orange Man is Bad is a reason? Guess what. It is not. Your lack of a reason for wanting them here suggests you post is just trolling.

    Too bad several thousand or more of the people you infer you want here cannot be located in your community. If you have a wife or daughters these are these the people perhaps you don't want in your community. If your answer is Yes, you may want to look at who is responsible for 92 percent of the rapes in Sweden.

    Right. We need unskilled and uneducated people who don't speak English?

    Maybe what we need is to stop paying people not to work. That will take care of any labor shortage.

    I bet the only time you bring up helping the homeless is when someone brings up bringing in refugees.

    So here's an idea....take YOUR bleeding heart and open YOUR wallet and pay for it.....no, in typical liberal fashion, you have this grand idea but think OTHERS should pay for it.

    So, the same people that attacked Biden for leaving Afghanis behind, are now attacking him for saving them.

    I am shocked I tell you, shocked .

    You misspelled "leaving Americans behind".

    It's no surprise. I posted this three weeks ago:

    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...ng-without-leadership.591441/#post-1072883969

    "You see, they don't really care about those 100,000s Afghans, they just want to use them as ammo to help Trump's re-election success. In fact, these Afghans, should they come here, will be treated by the Trump party as badly as all the other foreigners on the Trumper no-likely list, especially those from the ME."

    These Trumpers are SOO easy to predict.

    It would be awesome if we could find a way to tax ONLY liberals to pay for them, since you guys love importing poor foreigners who will not be anything but a $ drain.
