Why is Texas Accepting Thousands of Afghan “Refugees”?

According to a report by Mike Glenn at the Washington Times, Afghan refugees have recently started to arrive in Texas at Fort Bliss close to El Paso. This is one of three Department of Defense locations where Afghan refugees will stay until their immigration processing is complete.

According to a confirmation from several officials with U.S. Army North on August 22, 2021, “a number of Afghans at risk” came to Fort Bliss on August 21. They were subsequently moved to the Dona Ana Range Complex in New Mexico. At this new location, the migrants will receive temporary housing.
