MyTake on: Big Government Biden Raising Refugee Cap to 62,500 Up from 15,000 Under Trump

President Biden announced yesterday that his administration is raising the cap on refugee admissions to 62,500 for this fiscal year, far above the Trump administrations 15,000 persons limit.

However, Biden is getting criticism since this limit is below an earlier campaign promise. The Biden campaign had proposed to raise that 15,000 refugee limit to 125,000 refugees per fiscal year on the campaign trail. People need to realize who’s in office as the President’s tone is an on going voice over changing month by month as he was willing to keep the Trump-era level of 15,000 refugees just last month.

But what do you expect with a flip flopper like him in office? You get what you vote for right? That’s what they tell us at least.

As of last week, the U.S. had admitted 2,283 refugees so far this fiscal year that started last year in October, according to State Department data distributed to the resettlement agencies.The U.S. will likely not resettle 60,000 refugees in the next 5 months, as President Biden noted today.

Does Joe Biden truly care about allowing these refugees to come in here for the sake of their own life, or is it for the sake of his own party? According to Cato.org, immigrants tend to favor and vote Democrat because the party’s platform has historically been pro-immigration so they inevitably vote Democrat. Is this what Biden is banking on for 2024? It very well may be. Has he and the Democrats already won the 2024 vote? Not by a mile.

President Biden is now blaming Trump for not being able to meet the threshold they had just set out to reach with their new limit in place.

“The sad truth is that we will not achieve 62,500 admissions this [fiscal] year. We are working quickly to undo the damage of the last four years. It will take some time, but that work is already underway,” Biden said. Biden said the earlier cap “did not reflect America’s values as a nation” and the United States had a “commitment to protect the most vulnerable.”

“It is important to take this action today to remove any lingering doubt in the minds of refugees around the world who have suffered so much, and who are anxiously waiting for their new lives to begin,” the president said in a statement.

It’s good we let people in who need to come in especially if they are in danger but it does seem we ignore those who’ve waited so much longer to get help like those Americans here at home.

Doesn’t this upset the people waiting to come here who’ve been waiting for a green card for a long time? What about those who’ve lived here waiting to be awarded permanent residency and granted their green card? How about those who have no idea what their futures have in store? Doesn’t this warrant a demotivation for those waiting who truly want to do good here? Could I be wrong? Sure, am I right? Probably to a degree.

My Take on Big Government & It’s Foreign Policy

Many people in the United States feel politicians promise everything and deliver nothing. American’s associate this rhetoric to both the Republican and Democratic parties. We hear them create great rhetoric but when it’s it’s time to deliver, if they even do, they’ll ask you to sacrifice your safety and privacy to deliver on one of their promises, not much right? How much more do they want? How much bigger will big government become? Will it ever end?

You know what pisses me off? It’s government welcoming people in our country with open arms when they can’t even help the Americans already in need here, it’s counter productive, why?

Well, when you tell the incoming refugees or newly granted citizenship holders we’re here for you, we have open arms for you, we’ll provide you with opportunity while the United States government itself is shitting on the American people who are actually here in need of help, what does that do to incoming people’s hopes for this government? It’s not very good.

What about our United States government who has given up on Americans in dire need of help or failed to help those in need at all? That gives zero incentive for Americans to place trust in our government, Zero! Yet the politicians only want the votes of those Americans they claim to be fighting for only when it comes to election time, but ignore them altogether when in office, that’s not only contradictory that’s hypocrisy!

Let’s talk about our opportunity, how can this government provide somebody opportunity when it has someone in charge who made sure it was systematically unfair to not provide that opportunity to everyone, especially people of color. The man in charge had no regrets of drafting the 1994 crime bill that helped imprison many people of color, with a guy like Biden in charge how do minorities like those coming in know the guy in the White House has their best interests at heart, they don’t, especially given his track record. Big Government Does Not Work!

As an American and a good human being I know helping people is always essential but only after you’re able to help yourself and your own.

That’s one thing I understood about President Trump, many people of color did as well, Trump wanted to provide equal opportunity to everyone under a free market system. Biden wants big government everywhere to dictate how you live, at least that’s how I see it.

Do we need 62,000 more people in the United States? Do we even need 125,000 more people if we can’t even help the people in our streets? You have your own answer to this!

I guarantee you this, many people coming here would more than likely stop coming here in droves if America and it’s global military industrial complex would end interfering in their elections, if we continue to do so expect more chaos and instability in those regions. You should expect more people to come here if this continues.

Moreover, sanctioning and bombing their countries does nothing good either because those are obvious acts of war against those places which in turn rallies their own people against America that further distabilizes the region and creates more hate against us.

Policing the world does no good considering it’s backfired on the United States so many times, if we don’t allow them to live there, how can they survive? We should step in when we need to and leave when we have to, apparently the United States government has never gotten that memo.
