One Biden Refugee Camp Inside U.S. Now “Larger Than Half The Towns In New Jersey”

According to the New York Times, one of America’s military bases repurposed by Joe Biden as a refugee camp is larger in population than “half the towns in New Jersey.”

The paper described Fort Dix in New Jersey, one of several bases that have been converted into refugee camps for housing more than 70,000 Afghans brought with minimal vetting into the U.S. by the Biden administration.

Fort Dix is currently home to around 11,000 Afghans, and more are arriving weekly by way of the Philadelphia International Airport. The Biden White House plans to eventually bring about 95,000 Afghans into the U.S. and permanently resettle them into 46 different states.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, Fort Dix is the only domestic location still receiving Afghan refugees. Because of its capacity and closeness to Philadelphia, it is likely to be one of the last refugee camps to close.

Each week sees as many as four full planes of refugees arrive in New Jersey in the largest evacuation of refugees since the Vietnam War.

Official government reports indicate that around 37,000 Afghans live temporarily on domestic military bases. About the same number have already been permanently resettled all around the country since September.

Congress has allocated another $7 billion of taxpayer funding for the Afghan resettlement operation in a measure supported by 19 Senate Republicans and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) in the House.

That new funding means that the Afghan refugee resettlement will cost American taxpayers a minimum of $13.3 billion, which also means the operation has no termination date. The funding measure includes Afghan resettlement of any foreign national who claims they were “impacted” by the withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Afghanistan.

Since the war in Afghanistan began under President George W. Bush in 2001, the number of Afghan nationals in America has grown from around 44,000 to 133,000 in 2019. The new wave of refugees ensures that the number will continue to increase. Government information also indicates that most Afghans permanently residing in the U.S. are living on some form of public assistance.
