Flip-flop…flip: Joe Biden will raise refugee cap to 62,500 after all

May 4, 2021

During the campaign Joe Biden claimed that Donald Trump’s 15,000 person limit on refugees was a bigoted, racist, xenophobic policy and he vowed that under his administration it would be come one, come all. Even after he became President, Joe Biden promised to raise the refugee cap to a total higher than it was when Barack Obama was President, however he quickly flip-flopped on that promise and decided he would keep the cap at Donald Trump’s 15,000 after all.

You can imagine the ire and the consternation this decision drew from the left, they were not very pleased to say the least. Well, apparently they put enough pressure on good ole Uncle Joe because now he has flipped back to his original position and will increase the refugee cap to 62,500 after all. Here is more:

President Biden on Monday reversed himself and said he would allow as many as 62,500 refugees to enter the United States during the next six months, eliminating the sharp limits that President Donald J. Trump imposed on those seeking refuge from war, violence or natural disasters.

The action comes about two weeks after Mr. Biden announced that he was leaving Mr. Trump’s limit of 15,000 refugees in place, which drew widespread condemnation from Democrats and refugee advocates who accused the president of reneging on a campaign promise to welcome those in need.

Mr. Biden quickly backtracked, promising only hours later that he intended to increase refugee admissions. With Monday’s announcement, the president formally bowed to the pressure.

Even the New York Times is having difficulty trying to keep up and defend Joe Biden’s wind-blown positions on immigration.

The truth is Joe Biden does not really have multiple positions on this issue, or any other issue for that matter, the truth is Joe Biden has NO position on any issue. His handlers fight over which position they will go forth with and Joe Biden delivers the message, he is just a puppet dancing at the end of the strings and on the refugee cap they had him dancing a jig.

    Does anyone really believe these are real numbers of who he is going to allow in? The door is wide open. Come one, come all. California is going to allow illegal sick parents and grandparents to come in and get health care. It is nuts.

    I completely agree with both of you. The Biden admin is a waking nightmare.

    The only real question is how much permanent damage will they do before they are thrown out of office? That’s a rhetorical question. Anything short of Armageddon is possible and some folks think it is Armageddon.

    I can’t even figure out what are the likeliest possibilities. I’m pretty sure the economy is going to crash in the next few years, but that’s as much certainty as I’ve got and I’m not even completely certain of that.
