United Nations: Fight Terrorism by Opening Borders to More Afghans

John Binder, Breitbart, August 26, 2021

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi says the Islamic terrorist attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan — which has left dead at least 13 United States service members — underscores the need to resettle more Afghans across the U.S.

On Thursday, the Islamic State – Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) claimed responsibility for two suicide bombings in Kabul that killed at least 10 U.S. Marines, one U.S. Navy medic, and another two service members along with at least 90 others and has left at least 150 others wounded.


In response, Grandi suggested that terrorist attacks underscore why nations in the Western world must open their borders to more Afghans for permanent resettlement.

“Today’s horrible bomb attack in Kabul, in addition to everything else, should make us all even more determined not to leave the Afghan people alone,” Grandi wrote. “Now is the time to do more for Afghans at risk and in need, and for those who are displaced or refugees in neighbouring [sic] countries.”

Already, President Joe Biden’s administration is bringing tens of thousands of Afghans to the U.S. through a fast-track process {snip}

Afghans, thus far, are being resettled in Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Arizona, as well as New Jersey, Connecticut, and Virginia.
