Democrats Demand Reparations and Open Borders for Afghan Migrants

Sixty-six progressive Democrats are telling President Joe Biden to open the nation’s border to Afghan migrants because the U.S. bears moral responsibility for the wars in Afghanistan.
“After decades of disastrous U.S. intervention, one thing is clear: We have a moral responsibility to provide safe harbor and refuge for the Afghan people,” the August 26 letter, which does not set an upper limit on the inflow of Afghan migrants, states.
“The U.S. war in Afghanistan has caused irreparable harm to Afghans,” the letter claims, without mentioning the many hard-fought humanitarian gains Americans delivered or mentioning the almost 2,400 dead Americans — in the two decades since 2001.
The letter is from the House’s progressives, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI), and Rep. James McGovern (D-MA). It reflects their view that foreigners are entitled to easy access to the United States because “white supremacy” in the U.S. is responsible for the many ills in the world.
The U.S. must provide Special Immigrant Visas to many Afghans who fought alongside the U.S. military and must invite many more into the P-2 refugee program, the progressives say:
Also, “Humanitarian parole must … be extended to other vulnerable groups in Afghanistan, including women’s rights activists, human rights defenders, religious minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and journalists,” the letter, again, which does not set an upper limit on the inflow of Afghan migrants, states.
The letter also urges Biden to triple the inflow of refugees in 2022, long after the U.S. will have left Afghanistan: “We urge you to increase the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program cap to no less than 200,000 when you issue your Presidential Determination on Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 before October 1st.”
The legislators also say Biden must import more migrants to counter the public’s opposition to migration:
