The Republican Study Committee unveiled a plan to fight Joe Biden’s program to quickly resettle tens of thousands of Afghan refugees into the U.S. In a memo on Wednesday, the RSC said Biden’s plan was dangerous and extended as well as an open border approach to immigration policies.
RSC Chair Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) pointed out the Biden administration requested $6.4 billion to fly any unvetted Afghan national into the U.S. by the end of the next fiscal year. He added the Democrats’ request included lifetime welfare and a path to citizenship for said Afghans.
“The Biden administration wants billions of dollars to fund unlimited green cards for unvetted Afghans,” Banks expressed in a tweet. “Opening our borders to a Taliban-run nation with the promise of lifetime welfare and citizenship for their extended family is reckless and dangerous.”
ALERT: Biden just sent Congress his Administration’s policy “riders” for the Gov’t Funding Bill (Continuing Resolution). They include lifetime welfare & path to citizenship for every unvetted Afghan national Biden has randomly flown—or will fly—into US, and their relatives. 1/10

The RSC went on to stress Biden’s plans put Americans at risk of Islamic terror.
