Joe Biden Speaking At Podium

Joe Biden Vows to Raise Number of Refugees Admitted to US from 15,000 to Over 125,000

Joe Biden declared that he plans to dramatically increase the number of annual refugees admitted into the United States.

Under the Trump administration, the maximum number of refugees permitted in the U.S. per year is 15,000. Biden pledged that he will raise that number to 125,000.

Biden made the declaration in a prerecorded video created for a virtual celebration of the 40th anniversary of Jesuit Refugee Service.

“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 on Thursday, as reported by the Religion News Service. “I promise, as president, I will reclaim that proud legacy for our country.”

“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,” Biden announced.

In June, Biden released a statement on World Refugee Day in which he said, “Fear-mongering, xenophobia, and racism are the unabashed tenets of Trump’s refugee and immigration policy,”

“I also recognize that it is not enough to simply reverse or dismantle the heartless policies of the Trump Administration,” the former vice president stated. “We need to look for ways to do better.”

“As President, I will increase the number of refugees we welcome into this country, setting an annual global refugee target of 125,000,” Biden said, then hinted that he could raise that amount, “And will seek to further raise it over time commensurate with our responsibility, our values, and the unprecedented global need.”

Biden added, “I will repeal the Muslim ban — and other discriminatory bans based on ethnicity and nationality — and restore asylum laws, including ending the horrific practice of separating families at our border.”

In October, President Donald Trump released a memo that read, “The admission of up to 15,000 refugees to the United States during FY 2021 is justified by humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest.”

A study released earlier this year claimed that refugees cost American taxpayers as much as $133,000 over the course of their lives.

    We don’t need nor can we afford a huge number of additional refugees, when California, once a beautiful state, cannot house, feed, or control its overpopulated streets.
    If Biden wants to increase our population, he should end abortion, a great moral victory.

  3. Betty Brady

    Is anybody surprised? Open the flood gates, Biden. Let the American taxpayers foot the bill for your stupidity. Overrun the country, exhaust our resources and saddle us with insurmountable debt. Socialism on the horizon.

    Why does Biden think that letting people who need help into our country when there are American citizens living on the streets homeless Joe needs to walk around Skid row in Los Angeles and head up to the Gay Bay aka San Francisco and if he likes the way American citizens are living he can show how much of a dumb ass he is in putting foreigners before Americans

    That CROOK Biden can’t vow ANYTHING if he’s not POTUS . . . and with all the RAMPANT FRAUD going on, he never Will be. He needs to be in FEDERAL PRISON for this FRAUD, for SEDITION and TREASON as per the U.S. Constitution – PERMANENTLY. GITMO or LEAVENWORTH will do FINE. One THOROUGHLY Enlightened And WARY Patriot Looking for FAIR Elections. Team Trump And His Allies 2020.

    Oh yes, THAT Just what we need..NOT!!!!…..More welfare recipients, more illegal DRUGS, more DISEASE, more CRIME, and more illegals taking jobs away from AMERICAN citizens.(so “employers” can get away with paying them LESS).
    Foolish brainwashed, indoctrinated, people DUPED into voting DEMOCOMMUNIST, hoping for a different outcome. (that will NEVER come) Welcome to your new third-world, communist controlled cesspool , if the rampant voter fraud succeeds and dementia-Joe and his “HO” take power.

    Your refugee story elimates the fact that once refugees live in USA they pay taxes everyday in our Shes and on their income they also. O tribute to social security and most never collect it.

  9. Fred

    He’s just looking to boost the Democrats voting base as eventually the democrats will give illegal,, criminals (as in Florida) and non citizens the right to vote putting the already heavy burden of support on the overtaxed middle class

    Well dickhead biden and heels in the air harris should pay for them fuck immigrants, and thats what the muslims people want like that 2 balled bitch omar and the other fuckimg muslim bitch in Minnesota. Go ahead biden now ur asking for more AMERICAN PEOPLE TO __<LL THE illegals

  11. Gary and Eva Son

    The typical way that democrats operate, always have and always will. Raise your taxes, give away to the poor to accomplish their agenda, but never give away anything more than what it takes to keep people under their thumb. Looks like that is exactly what they are up to again.

  12. Roberta

    Well, if that F****ing A-hole Biden and that black bitch he picked for VP actually take over this country, we might just as well bend over and kiss our asses goodbye since they are going to hand this country over to the illegals and China. Life is forever ruined for the middle class. Naturally WE the middle class are going to have to support these lame asses as usual. I HATE DemoRATS! They obviously cheated to get Biden elected that’s the only way they could’ve done it.

    It’s all going to happen and they know the American people are too apathetic to stop it. It’s going to hurt us where it hurts…. the wallet. Everyone’s taxes are going up 30% immediately. Don’t think that it’s only for people who make over $ 400,000. If u honestly believe that – u are really dumb. And remember White people pay 97% of the taxes in this country and we will pay for the mass immigration which will occur this year. It’s a great way to keep the white man down. It’s all part of the plan to redistribute the wealth in the United States. It’s votes that concern the democrats – they know over 92% of these immigrants will vote Democrat ensuring once they get in office we will never get them out. Welcome to the new United States.
