Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sets the course of the policy debate in the Democrat Party.
That often works to the left’s detriment.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a request to Joe Biden that instantly backfired.
After Joe Biden scrambled to clean up the mess he made in Afghanistan with the disastrously executed withdrawal plan, Ocasio-Cortez seized on the crisis to demand the Biden administration evacuate a minimum of 200,000 Afghans with the possibility of taking in over one million refugees.
“We used to have an annual ceiling of 231,000 people under Ronald Reagan. No moderate figure there. George W. Bush 70,000. Under President Obama, it was 85,000. Under Trump 15,000. We have had former members of the administration come forward and talk about Stephen Miller, eventual essentially waging rhetorical war against the idea of Afghans coming here. We have seen people on another network call them invaders…So there is another side of this. There is another side that doesn’t want any of them here. So do you think that the politics around bringing more people in are going to be challenged by that xenophobic attitude we are seeing play out?” Ocasio-Cortez began.
Ocasio-Cortez attacked Trump’s refugee policy as racist in a subtle warning that Joe Biden could face attacks of racism should Biden not agree to throw open America’s borders to potentially millions of Afghan refugees.
“It is no secret that the Trump administration carried out extremely xenophobic and racist immigration policies. When we look at the turmoil of what is happening now, one of the questions we have to ask as well — Afghanistan is a responsibility and that falls upon the shoulders of virtually every president since George W. Bush. One of the things we see, what was the Trump administration doing when they were not pre-evacuating out under the SIV program, these Afghan interpreters and nationals and allies? It is because of Stephen Miller and his rhetoric and the xenophobia of the Trump administration that there were many thousands of Afghans we could have worked on evacuating much earlier than even this year,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
But one of the final flights out of Afghanistan showcased the dangers of the Biden administration’s rushed plan to import mass amounts of poorly vetted Afghan refugees.
That’s because a convicted rapist made his way onto a flight and then American soil.
The Washington Times exclusively reports:
When American citizens were having trouble catching flights out of Kabul, Ghader Heydari made it on an Ethiopian Airlines charter flight for evacuees.
Border officials flagged the 47-year-old on his arrival at Washington Dulles International Airport. They appear to be the first to have spotted his criminal and immigration history and derailed his entry.
Critics like Tucker Carlson accused the Biden administration of implementing a mass migration policy with regards to Afghan refugees in the hopes of importing a mass of new Democrat Party voters.
A convicted rapist infiltrating the Biden administration’s evacuation airlift shows the safety and security of the American people were not adequately considered in this process.
