The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation launched a new coalition on Wednesday in an effort to get Afghan refugees places to work when they arrive in the United States.

As reported by The Hill, “The Coalition for Afghan Refugee Employment, which includes major employers such as Amazon, Walmart and UPS, aims to provide employment opportunities to tens of thousands over the next six months.” 

Carolyn Cawley, president of the Chamber of Commerce Foundation, said in a statement, “Through this effort, we’re proud to bring American businesses together to fill a critical need — supporting the resilience and financial independence of Afghan refugees who are starting a new life in the U.S.”

The recently-created business coalition “is joining Welcome.US, a campaign to help about 65,000 Afghan refugees resettle in the U.S. that is backed by former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton,” per The Hill.

“We know that our new Afghan neighbors will contribute immeasurably to the country, including in the workforce,” said Cecilia Muñoz and John Bridgeland, the co-chairs of Welcome.

The Biden administration has been heavily criticized for its disastrous handling of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

As The Daily Wire reported, “The U.S. working with allied countries and private organizations oversaw the evacuation of more than 120,000 people out of Afghanistan in August. The vast majority of those were Afghans fleeing the Taliban, and roughly 65,000 of those Afghans were taken in by the U.S. and transported to U.S. military bases around the world, including in the United States.”

“Last week, the White House asked Congress to allocate $6.4 billion to help Afghan refugees resettle in the U.S., according to the New York Post. Part of the funds would go toward providing welfare benefits and legal identification to each migrant processed and paroled into the United States between July 30 and September 30 this year.”

The Biden administration’s disastrous policy led to the rushed evacuation of allies and Americans, while many citizens in the U.S. attempted to take matters into their own hands to help get people out of the country.

Earlier this week, The Daily Wire reported that the “Biden administration’s State Department went silent for a week as a Congressional office struggled to get their help evacuating Americans from Afghanistan, according to an exclusive report from the Daily Caller.”

“Rep. Darrell Issa’s office told the Daily Caller that despite repeated requests, it took a herculean effort to get a response from the very organization charged with expediting evacuations from Afghanistan, even though the Biden administration has repeatedly said they are working with the Taliban to secure the release of Americans, coalition allies, and Afghans with special immigrant visas (SIVs).”

“Issa’s office also provided the Daily Caller with a record of their email exchange with the Department of State, noting that it took from August 30th until well into September to receive a response to requests for help,” The Daily Wire noted.

“The State Department should have been in the lead rescuing Americans from the Afghanistan crisis it helped to create,” Issa told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Instead, like the President, it has been a bystander, except for its unambiguous message to stranded citizens that they are on their own.”

There are still many Americans and Afghan allies who are trying to get out of Afghanistan.

On Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that “as of the end of last week, we had about 100 American citizens in Afghanistan who told us that they wish to leave the country.”

Blinken pressed that the amount portrayed “a snapshot,” adding, “This is a picture that will continue to change over time.”

Regarding the amount of U.S. green card holders who are still in Afghanistan, Blinken said that this was “something that we don’t track directly,” but around “several thousand” U.S. green card holders are still in Afghanistan.

  1. What about all the legal American citizens who out now? Are they going to vaccine in to work for these companies ? How theygoing to get ” green cards “,learn to read ,write and speak American English or learn how to drive in America? .Also are these opportunities going given to all of the illegal immigrants flooding across our southern border?

  2. This is nuts! Why did we bring so many Afghans to the US? I’m sure 90% are not even vetted. How do we know we haven’t brought over terrorists? We have an insurmountable illegal problem via our southern borders that is putting a breaking strain on our tax dollars and now we are expected to support these people as well!
    How about supporting the legal citizens of this country first and give them the jobs the unemployed so desperately need.

  3. Hey, empty head Biden – why don’t you just come out and say it, Americans and Citizens of the United States do not mean anything to you. Illegal outsiders mean everything to you. Just say that you want us out of America. Just say we are kicked out of America so you can go to bed with illegal criminals. Stop beating around the bush on us and say it instead of torturing all of us. You, who are not even the President of the United States of America. You, whom cannot preside over any country but Washington, DC. You whom commit treason with every breath you take. You, whom are not even allowed in the White House in DC or even step foot on Air Force one. You, whom are not the Commander in Chief of the military. You, whom you have an entire nation believing your crimes as truths. You need to be put in a permanent nursing home. Get out of our lives. We don’t like you. We don’t want you. You, just because you are you and take your indecent administration with you!

  4. Why in HELL are we Importing Non English Speaking Recipients?? Let some other Nation take them! we have more than enough Welfare Sucking Bums here NOW!

  5. This is ALL garbage! Corporations are NOT the first most important entities on the World of Life!! You ALL are like mixed up Humans and more like zombie traitors just worried about money! Money is not a natural created thing in life. It’s man-made and ONLY valued by the corrupt minded individuals who have a psychosis of the ugliest type, behaving like god! This is a very dangerous and not reality, as NO MAN can become a god and karma will be coming around for all your destructive mentalities and violations of a Universal level. Remember, you get ill, grow old and transcend like every other Human Being on this living Planet you are killing. Money is man made and ONLY and is an additive, compulsive disorder which promotes slavery. Money must be abolished and the true miraculous natural gift of nature should be cherished and once again recognized by ALL, which is the fact we are living miracles of nature. Not only are you being a traitor to our living planet with ALL it’s life, but it’s not yours alone! It belongs to EVERY SINGLE LIVING BEING on & under it’s surface. It’s not any one persons property, it belongs to everyone living on it. Stop being criminals and update your zombie like mentality. Start distributing your stolen goods and give back to the Earth and the living energies upon it. Cannibalistic attitudes which eat up others is a sign of ignorance and nature will herself balance out the froth. If Humans are unable to control their own selfish impulsive wrong-doings, mother nature will surely eliminate the affected psychosis zombie-like creatures upon Earth’s surface with a transcendence to oblivion. Nothing goes unnoticed and everything will be corrected

    You all will be boycotted and will dissolve quickly, within our micro-time of existence on Earth. You will be punished again for violations upon Nature’s Natural treasures of life itself, and let’s hope mentalities being displayed (cannibalistic-capitalists) are removed from any further futures within the multi-universal flow of energies forevermore. Everyone has the option/choice of not being part of entropy, a natural part of nature itself. It’s every entities choice, comply peacefully within Natures bubbles of endless learning or evaporate one piece at a time into oblivion and transcend to nowhereville and forevermore cease to exist in any fashion, with no values of remembrance. It’s up to every single quasi-living entity and is clearly understood by the enlightened souls of energy frequencies. Sound absurd? Then prepare to be dismantled and enter the realm of non-existence with all your delusional psychotic illusions of self-destruction and remember …. we all have choices and the above is the no-win, self-centered annihilation of one’s gift of Nature = life, to natures trash can of garbage = non-existent forevermore.

    To all the sentient miracles who understand the above, we truly have the tools to dismantle this diseased way of behaving, by not supporting this cannibalistic capitalistic way of behaving and allow these diseased, negative energies to evaporate into their own directed abyss of nothingness! Positive frequencies of proactive existence will prevail and the scum of selfishness will evaporate one piece at a time … just like a black-holes final processes. There will eventually be no more of these diseased characters amongst us in the future of eternal existence and this is where we will truly be omnipotent, like the creator of everything around and within us. This will be the utopian gift everyone has been learning to graduate to and CHEERS, I will see and be with you there, Bless You All that choose to graduate there in Utopianville. It’s your choice! 😀
