Patrick Witt, a Republican candidate for Georgia’s 10th Congressional District, on Wednesday said Gov. Brian Kemp and President Joe Biden both support the “America Last” decision to admit Afghan refugees into the state.
“It’s bad enough we have a president in the White House who has single-handedly created a record-breaking border crisis, flooding our cities with thousands of migrants, drugs, and COVID-positive cases,” Witt said in a press release. “Now, our so-called Republican governor is making Georgia an open-border state.”
Witt promised to oppose the “Biden-Kemp America Last agenda” and their open-borders policies and instead “put America and Georgia first.”
He hopes to fill the seat that Republican Rep. Jody Hice will vacate when he runs for Georgia Secretary of State in 2022.
Kemp signaled his willingness to further replace America’s native population with aliens from third-world countries, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported.
“It is vitally important to keep those who partnered with American armed forces over the last 20 years safe from harm,” Kemp said. “Joe Biden has broken his word to the nation, the Afghans, and the world, but we as Americans cannot break our word to those who lent aid to us in our mission to defend freedom and bring justice to those who attacked our country on September 11.”
Refugee resettlement groups interpreted Kemp’s vague statement as a sign that he “is supportive of welcoming Afghan refugees.”
The International Rescue Committee estimates that more than 300,000 Afghan civilians aided the United States during its two-decade anti-terrorism occupation.
The United States has already admitted about 2,000 Afghan refugees, including 38 who have settled in Georgia since November.
