Soros-Linked Mass Migration Lobby: U.S. Must Open Borders to Ukraine Refugees:
The mass migration lobby, with financial ties to billionaire George Soros, is using Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to demand the United States open its borders to refugees from across Eastern Europe.
Even as President Joe Biden’s administration has resettled nearly 75,000 Afghans across American communities in the last six months — many of whom were not properly vetted and cannot be located — mass migration groups who have a financial stake in refugee resettlement say the U.S. ought to immediately begin refugee flows from Ukraine.
“The U.S. can also lead by example and live up to its highest ideals in welcoming more refugees fleeing violent conflict, including from Ukraine,” Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) President Krish O’Mara Vignarajah said in a statement:
The refugee resettlement system is precisely how we protect vulnerable populations, whether they are from Afghanistan or Ukraine. The Biden administration’s increase of the refugee ceiling to 125,000 coupled with low refugee arrivals to date means there is ample room to welcome Ukrainians in search of safety. The administration must rebuild and streamline the refugee program’s processing capacity to prepare for this new humanitarian emergency. [Emphasis added]
Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, referenced the phrase popularized by former President Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, which encompassed the administration’s goal of using various crises to enact policies.
“Never let a crisis go to waste,” Krikorian wrote. --->READ MORE HERE

Refugee resettlement leaders urge Biden to welcome Ukrainians to the U.S.:
As international humanitarian groups warned that the Russian invasion could trigger a major exodus from Ukraine, some refugee resettlement leaders in the United States called on the Biden administration to prepare to welcome people fleeing for their lives.
“It will be our moral imperative to welcome Ukrainian refugees, as we have been doing for decades,” said David Duea, president of the Northwestern affiliate of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. The agency has resettled thousands of Ukrainians in Oregon and Washington.
He added, “I do feel a sense that this is coming.”
But there was concern that the U.S. refugee program, already under pressure to absorb more than 70,000 evacuees from Afghanistan who arrived last year, would be unable to handle another large volume of evacuees. --->READ MORE HERE
