Thousands of Afghan ‘refugees’ could soon be housed on military bases in the United States under a new Pentagon plan, according to reports.
As many as 30,000 Afghan nationals may be moved to the U.S. in the near future, the Biden administration has confirmed.
“We want to have the capacity to get up to several thousand immediately, and want to be prepared for the potential of tens of thousands,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed in comments to Fox News.
“[Forts] Bliss and McCoy have the capability right now – and what’s advantageous is, with a little bit of work, they could increase their capacity in very short order.”
The State Department has been granting ‘Special Immigrant Visas’ (SIV) to Afghans who were employed by, or on behalf of, the U.S. government.
“The situation in Afghanistan may lead to DoS [Department of State] allowing Afghan SIV applicants to be moved to temporary housing locations while still being vetted for parolee status,” details a Department of Defense document reviewed by Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich.
Shockingly, Kirby indicated American citizens will not be given priority over Afghans during evacuations from Kabul.
“Once we get more airlift out of Kabul, we’re going to put as many people on those planes as we can. There will be a mix not just American citizens, but perhaps some Afghan SIV applicants as well,” Kirby told Heinrich.
“We’re going to focus on getting people out of the country, then sorting it out at the next stop. It’s not going to be just Americans first, then SIV applicants.”
The Canadian government has declared plans to accept as many as 20,000 Afghan asylum seekers, meaning 50,000 Afghans could soon be relocated to North America.
The United Kingdom has announced that Afghan refugees will be welcome to move to Britain – even without passports.
Similar to the the 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake that rocked Haiti, the Taliban is a force of nature causing tectonic shifts under a crumbling Biden Administration lead by the nose by an incompetent Defense Department that has mismanaged the effort in Afghanistan from day one.
