Refugee resettlement is big business. And business is booming.
Between open borders and transporting half of Afghanistan here, not to mention the usual conventional refugee flood, all sorts of invasion records are being broken. Refugee resettlement is massive but even the big resettlers are having trouble keeping up after Trump’s refugee cuts.
But, adopting Big Tech’s move fast and break things ethos, why not crowdsource refugee resettlement?
Imagine an Uber to enable everyone to fill America with Jihadis.
With refugee resettlement organizations stretched thin, the State Department is trying to make it easier for everyday Americans to sponsor refugees from abroad and help them resettle in the U.S.
The private sponsorship program announced today, known as Welcome Corps, could mark a significant shift in how refugee resettlement in the U.S. works. Until now, the State Department has relied on refugee resettlement organizations to do this work. But those groups have been struggling to rebuild after deep cuts during the administration of former President Donald Trump.
The new pilot program is modeled in part on previous efforts to resettle Afghans who were evacuated last year and Ukrainians fleeing the war in their country. Now that approach is expanding to other refugees from around the globe.
“The Welcome Corps is the boldest innovation in refugee resettlement in four decades,” said U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Much like the atomic bomb or TikTok, some bold innovations are destructive.
The program is intended to harness “the energy and talents of Americans from all walks of life desiring to serve as private sponsors,” Blinken said, “ranging from members of faith and civic groups, veterans, diaspora communities, businesses, colleges and universities, and more.”
Not to mention Islamic terrorists, the Muslim Brotherhood (but I repeat myself) and anyone who wants to see America destroyed even faster.
Those refugees could come from anywhere in the world. In practice, however, the majority of refugees who are approved to resettle in the U.S. have been displaced from a relatively small number of countries. So far this fiscal year, the countries at the top of that list include the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burma, Syria and Afghanistan.
Three out of four of those groups are Muslims. No doubt a coincidence.
The number of refugees who are resettled under the new private sponsorship plan will be relatively small at first. The State Department’s goal is to mobilize at least 10,000 Americans to step forward as private sponsors in the first year, Blinken said, welcoming at least 5,000 refugees from around the world.
The invasion continues.
