Biden’s administration is looking to divert United States Border Patrol agents from their mission at the U.S.-Mexico border to send them overseas “to assist” those fleeing from Ukraine amidst Russia’s invasion, a new report states. https://t.co/G93cCz9pZ0

Brilliant. Biden orders our border patrol to leave our border open to help Ukraine with its borders. #AmericaLast
The incompetence and destructive policies of the Biden regime knows no boundaries. pic.twitter.com/xQUOybvWug

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 the war.
David Duea, president of Lutheran Community Services Northwest, called resettling Ukrainian refuges inside the U.S. a “moral imperative”:
“It will be our moral imperative to welcome Ukrainian refugees, as we have been doing for decades.”
However, the U.S. refugee program has been strained beyond limits trying to place 70,000 evacuees from Afghanistan following the disastrous pull out from the war-torn country in August.
🤦♀️& biden wants to send our southern border patrol “volunteers” to the Poland/Ukraine border for screenings if refugees. O, not to mention the threat of a cyber attack on Russia. Openly trying to put us in a war with Russia (& China pretty much). https://t.co/DTF1byYOKn

Bill Frelick, director of the refugee and migrant rights division of Human Rights Watch, said funding cuts during the Trump administration have left nonprofits involved in resettlement, and that keeping refugees overseas would be a better solution:
“Right now, our resettlement capacity, which was decimated under the Trump administration, is strained to the limits.
Establishing camps, if needed in places like Poland, would be a much higher imperative than planning for refugee resettlement at this emergency stage.”
