Tucker Carlson slams Biden over plan to accept an ‘invasion’ of 30,000 Afghan refugees and says mainstream media will support the idea because ‘they hate the US’
- Carlson condemned the idea of the US bringing in thousands of refugees on his show Tuesday night
- It came after the White House said the US would evacuate not only Americans from Afghanistan, but also members of ‘vulnerable populations’.
- ‘The American government exists to help American citizens, not to help vulnerable populations, whatever that is,’ Carlson said
- Refugee shelters are reportedly being organized in military bases
Tucker Carlson has slammed the Biden administration over its plan to allow 30,000 Afghan refugees into the US, branding it an ‘invasion’.
He launched his attack on Tuesday night after White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the US would evacuate not only Americans from Afghanistan, but also Special Immigration Visa applicants and members of ‘vulnerable populations’.
‘Notice how she puts all three together. Americans, special visa applicants, vulnerable populations. What the hell is that?’ Carlson replied.
‘The American government exists to help American citizens. Not to help vulnerable populations, whatever that is.’
Carlson told viewers it’s ‘not just translators they want to import’, but also ‘anybody in Afghanistan who wants to come here for the free health care.’
He went on to call the migration of Afghan refugees an ‘invasion’ and said that potentially millions of them could soon take over American neighborhoods.
Carlson extended on his remarks from Monday, when he said: ‘So first we invade, and then we are invaded. It is always the same.’

Over the weekend Fox News obtained a Department of Defense report which showed the US plans to bring in 30,000 Afghan refugees ‘in the immediate future’.
DoD spokesman Chris Mitchell said some 22,000 will be housed in US facilities that could potentially be military garrisons.
SIV, or Special Immigrant Visa, applicants are a group of Afghans who worked for the US military in some form. Some 2,000 SIVs have been moved by the Biden administration thus far.
Carlson asserted that the media supports bringing in refugees because ‘they hate the population of the United States’.
Carlson said that 46 US senators – 43 Democrat and three Republican- reportedly called on the Biden Administration to ‘create a humanitarian parole category for Afghan women leaders, activists, judges and other public figures to quickly and efficiently relocate to the US’.
Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp was further criticized by Carlson for allowing refugees into the state.
Sean Parnell, a Senate candidate and US veteran, appeared on the show and agreed with Carlson’s concerns as he also felt that getting Americans out of Afghanistan should be the priority.

Parnell commented on his experiences in Afghanistan as one of them involved an Afghan interpreter that he and his men had knew and trusted for over a year.
The interpreter was reportedly involved with placing an IED mine that killed one of the men in Parnell’s platoon.
Parnell said: ‘Just because an Afghan works with us and is friends with us does not mean they are safe to bring here. This is precisely why we cannot bring 30,000 unvetted Afghan refugees to the United States of America.’
Carlson added: ‘Something happens in the brains- particularly these middle-aged Republican leaders, their brains go soft. Low testosterone may be part of the cause.’
Afghan refugees continue to attempt to flee the Taliban rule as images have revealed them running alongside planes and attempting to climb onto aircrafts on the runway.
At least three people plummeted hundreds of feet to their deaths after clinging to a US jet as it took off from the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul.
Refugees are said to be placed in U.S. military facilities upon arrival
