Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) on Tuesday made it clear he is inviting Afghan migrants to his state with open arms amid concerns of measles outbreaks and terrorist sympathizers being among them as others commit visa fraud. “Pennsylvania stands ready as a safe, welcoming place for those who seek refuge in the United States. To the Afghan evacuees who just arrived: Welcome home,” Wolf said, retweeting another grand welcome from the Keystone State’s official Twitter account, which declared in all caps that “ALL ARE WELCOME HERE”: Pennsylvania stands ready as a safe, welcoming place for those who seek refuge in the United States.

President Joe Biden’s agencies are refusing to disclose how many Afghans on the federal government’s “No Fly List” have sought entry to the United States since beginning their massive resettlement operation currently underway. Last month, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to top Biden officials asking that the administration share the number of Afghans with ties to terrorism, the Taliban, the Islamic State (ISIS), and Al Queda who have sought entry to the U.S. “How many individuals on the U.S. no-fly list attempted to board evacuation flights out of Afghanistan? How many successfully gained access to an evacuation flight?” Grassley asks: How many evacuees have been flagged during the vetting and security screening process as potential security concerns or risks? How many evacuees is the U.S. government currently detaining as potential security concerns or risks? [Emphasis added] What was the rationale for the State Department’s apparent decision to transmit a … [Read more...] about Biden Conceals How Many Afghans on ‘No Fly List’ Sought Entry to U.S.

President Joe Biden’s federal agencies are dodging on whether or not Afghans arriving in the United States are mandated to receive one of the three available coronavirus vaccines that millions of Americans are now being required to take. Last week, as Breitbart News reported , Biden ordered that the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) develop a rule requiring all private companies with 100 or more employees mandate the vaccine or be subjected to weekly coronavirus tests. Biden also ordered the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to require vaccines for all health care workers who work at facilities receiving federal Medicare or Medicaid funding. At the same time, local reports have indicated that tens of thousands of Afghans being housed at U.S. military bases by the Biden administration are merely being offered the vaccine rather than being required to take it. “Afghan refugees at Fort McCoy in western Wisconsin are … [Read more...] about Biden Admin Dodges on Whether Afghans are Mandated to Take Vaccine
