US Accepts 100K Refugees

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1946: Cold War: The United States State Department releases the Acheson-Lilienthal Report, outlining a plan for the international control of nuclear power.

The U.S. will welcome up to 100,000 refugees from the violence in Ukraine, the Biden administration said.

The White House also said that the U.S. is pledging an additional $1 billion to assist those impacted by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“This funding will provide food, shelter, clean water, medical supplies and other forms of assistance. We are also announcing an additional $320 million in democracy and human rights funding to Ukraine and its neighbors,” according to a White House fact sheet.

“The United States and the European Union are also coordinating closely to ensure that these efforts, and other forms of humanitarian admission or transfers, are complementary and provide much-needed support to Ukraine’s neighbors.”

The invasion began on February 24, and more than 3.5 million Ukrainians have fled the country in that time.

    Let these poor people from Ukraine in and send the illegals back where they came from. Before you call me names, the people from Ukraine are actually running from something. The illegals are just breaking our laws and expecting handouts. God bless America and Ukraine.

    1. Dick says:

      Agreed!

    2. Tom says:

      I am not going to call you any names. I am just going to tell you not to broad brush those illegals at our southern border. Some of them are fleeing drug cartel violence. And violence is violence.

  2. Suan says:

    Think about this: the illegals referred to by another reader are running from oppression and death, too.

    If the USA had laws to “expedite” them, the way we are expediting Ukranians, the illegals would not be illegal.

    Our country is made up of immigrants. God Bless America!
