This country has transmogrified before our eyes into an incorrigible Clown World. The very last thing we need right now is to compound the chaos with the addition of 30,000 Afghan refugees imported through the “Special Immigrant Visa program” run by the notoriously open-borders, America Last U.S. State Department. According to documents obtained by Fox News over the weekend, the bureaucracy “plans to potentially relocate up to 30,000 Afghan SIV applicants into the United States in the immediate future” and resettle them at military bases such as Fort McCoy in Wisconsin and Fort Bliss in Texas “while still being vetted for parolee status.”...

he “Special Immigrant Visa” program was originally created to help a small number of Afghan and Iraqi interpreters who worked for the U.S military. By 2018, the U.S. Government Accountability Office reported that a whopping 60,000-plus individuals—about 20,000 principal SIV holders and their families—had been admitted to America under SIVs and received federal resettlement assistance upon arrival. The number of SIV visas has grown steadily over the past decade as the number of troops in the Middle East has shrunk. In 2017, 26,000 troops were stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq; that year, 18,000-plus SIV applications from Afghans and Iraqis were approved.
