U.S. Will Admit 100,000 Refugees Fleeing Ukraine. Biden will give priority to gay and trans freaks. I'm not making this up.

U.S. Will Admit 100,000 Refugees Fleeing Ukraine, White House Says​

The U.S. will accept up to 100,000 refugees fleeing the fighting in Ukraine as the humanitarian crisis from Russia’s attack on its neighbor worsens, administration officials said Thursday.
More than 10 million people in Ukraine have been uprooted by the fighting, the United Nations estimates. More than 3.6 million of them have fled the country, the U.N. says, most bound for Poland.
A senior administration official said Thursday more details would come, but officials are looking at a range of legal pathways, including the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. President Biden was in Brussels on Thursday for meetings with NATO leaders and allies over how to respond to Russia’s aggression.

The official said the administration is “working in particular to expand and develop new programs with a focus on welcoming Ukrainians who have family members in the United States.” The official added that the U.S. is “committed to protecting the most vulnerable among the refugee populations that have already fled,” such as gay and transgender individuals, those with medical needs, and dissidents.

The European Union has admitted around 3.5 million Ukrainian refugees since the war began, with the bloc permitting people fleeing the war to come without a visa and with the right to work for two years.
The bloc has also rolled out core services for the people arriving, providing them with food, shelter and education. Ireland, which is outside the bloc’s visa-free travel zone, is waiving visas for Ukrainians. Britain, which is no longer in the EU, is now permitting Ukrainians to come provided they have a sponsor.

The government in Poland, where 2.2 million people have arrived, has been appealing for international help, particularly from the U.S. and U.K. Unlike the 2015 refugee crisis—when people escaping wars in Syria and Libya mainly went to the continent’s wealthiest nations, like Germany—Ukrainians have been generally settling in Central European states like Poland and Slovakia. Both nations speak a language that is similar to Ukrainian, share cultural ties and centuries of history, and their labor markets have been tight.

Earlier this month, Polish President Andrzej Duda pressed visiting Vice President Kamala Harris during an hourlong meeting in Warsaw to expedite U.S. visas for Ukrainians in Poland hoping to join family members in the U.S. Warsaw Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski urged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to do the same thing, during a separate meeting in the Polish capital.
“This is a test of us: Putin wanted to weaken us, to divide us, this is his tactic, to destabilize countries with refugees,” said Mr. Trzaskowski in an interview. “We all know it… this is not going to be just for a week or two.”

Lol. Where does it say they would be prioritized?

It says the focus would be on those who have family here. That is the priority according to your link.

There is nothing with the process or the way the article described the process.
Typical liberalism double standard though.
Let's let 2 million enter, unvented, from our Southern Border.

Third paragraph, copied verbatim: "The official added that the U.S. is “committed to protecting the most vulnerable among the refugee populations that have already fled,” such as gay and transgender individuals, those with medical needs, and dissidents."

Lol. How does that mean prioritize? That means we aren't going to forget about the gays and transgenders, more of a political statement.

Did you miss the "such as" part? Meaning there are many other vulnerable groups. Are gays more prioritized than those with medical needs and dissidents?

"with a focus on welcoming Ukrainians who have family members in the United States.”

You see what you want to see so you can be outraged and find another grievance to be pissed off about. Problem is, the piece doesn't actually say it.

Honest to God, what is wrong with you? You want to quibble about words? You said " . . . the focus would be on those who have family here. That is the priority . . ."

So "the focus" means prioritize while "committed to protecting the most vulnerable" does not mean prioritize? It that you're trying to say?

We should prioritize women and children, the eldery, those needing medical care. We should NOT prioritize those with family in the US, LGBTQs or dissidents.

"Quibble about words"? Did you really mean to say that? You mean you just get to disregard the meaning of words or make up your own meaning for them? wtf.

I'll make the same arguments since you decided to delete everything but 6 words.

“committed to protecting the most vulnerable among the refugee populations that have already fled,” such as gay and transgender individuals, those with medical needs, and dissidents."

This is obviously what you are referring to. There is NOTHING about prioritizing even mentioned.........which means designating something as more important things. The quote even mentions those with medical needs and dissidents IN THE SAME SENTENCE. How do you figure 2 of those groups are prioritized? It even says "such as".......which means for example. They gave 4 examples, there could be main more groups they are committed to protecting.
Yeah, I'm saying "committed to protecting the most vulnerable" doesn't mean prioritize. Because it doesn't. Gays and transgenders are even prioritized over those with medical needs and dissidents when you actually read the WORDS you don't want to quibble over.

You have problems with this admin, that's fine. You don't have to make shit up.

If they are not prioritized, why are they singled out? It should just say "committed to protecting the refugee populations that have already fled."

We also know that pedophile lives are important to some people and these refugees should also be included in the Biden plan. We don’t want to overlook anyone and all are welcome with open arms.

Like I said before, it's politics. The admin is just catering to their base.

It's like pubs saying the second amendment is under assault everytime they get in front of a camera.
