Virginia sheriff furious over surprise Biden plan to fly in thousands of Afghans:
A Northern Virginia sheriff is furious with the Biden administration for springing plans on him to fly thousands more Afghan nationals into his county in an operation set to begin Saturday.
On Thursday, Loudoun County Sheriff Michael Chapman disclosed that Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and his staff have repeatedly ignored his concerns about the government's plan to bring thousands of Afghans into his region. The Biden administration failed to provide assurances that the community will not be endangered by the forthcoming six-month operation.
“As I have a responsibility for the safety and security of Loudoun’s citizens, I want to ensure that our community is aware of the concerns we have raised and the expectations we have from our partners with the federal government. Currently, those expectations have not been met,” Chapman said in a statement. “We will continue to keep our community informed as this process continues. If the resettlement proceeds, we will work with the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and all stakeholders to ensure that appropriate resources are obtained for the refugees’ successful transition into the United States.”
This new operation comes two months after the Washington Examiner reported that virtually none of the 82,000 people airlifted from Kabul last August were vetted before being admitted to the United States despite claims to the contrary from the Biden administration. It is not clear if or how DHS has screened and vetted the thousands to be flown in this year. --->READ MORE HERE
Shock: DHS springs plan for 16,000 Afghan influx through Loudoun County:
Without warning, the Biden administration this month told Loudoun County officials that it plans to roll an influx of 16,000 Afghan refugees through a convention center as part of its settlement program.
Sheriff Michael Chapman said Thursday that officials from the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service said that up to 1,000 at a time would be temporarily housed at the National Conference Center in the ritzy Lansdowne area east of Leesburg, Virginia.
The agency said that 2,000 a month would arrive between February and September.
"On February 4, 2022, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office received an unannounced visit by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service in which it learned that approximately 2,000 Afghan refugees, per month, were slated to arrive at the Washington Dulles International Airport during a window beginning as early as February 19, 2022, and extending to September 2022. DHS/FPS regional personnel advised the refugees would be transported by bus to the National Conference Center where they would stay until their ultimate relocation elsewhere in the United States," said the sheriff's office.
Each refugee is to be provided with cash and a cellphone while being required to stay at the center. --->READ MORE HERE
