The United States Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with multinational corporations like Amazon and Walmart, is launching an effort to quickly funnel newly arrived Afghans to the U.S. into American jobs.

This week, the Chamber announced an initiative called the “Coalition for Afghan Refugee Employment in the U.S.” that will partner with Amazon, United Parcel Service (UPS), and Walmart to quickly get Afghans into American jobs after they arrive as part of President Joe Biden’s massive resettlement operation.

“Helping meet the urgent needs of Afghan refugees will require all hands to work together,” President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Carolyn Cawley 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. [Emphasis added]

The Chamber is teaming up with — a newly created non-governmental organization (NGO) backed by former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, as well as former First Ladies Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama — to “mobilize the American people around welcoming Afghan refugees,” a news release states.

“I am excited to see the Coalition for Afghan Refugee Employment in the U.S. standing ready to assist these individuals as they find a future in their new home,” Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official Robert Fenton said in a statement. is working with multinational corporations like Airbnb, Walmart, Starbucks, Instacart, Facebook, Microsoft, and Chobani to provide financial support to Afghans arriving in the U.S. while also helping Biden privatize the refugee resettlement system so that corporations can import refugees to fill American jobs.

The Clinton-Bush-Obama NGO is being financially bankrolled by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors which has ties to billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation.

Biden has said he hopes to resettle about 95,000 Afghans across the U.S. over the next 12 months. In a 21-day period from August to September, Biden brought more than 48,000 Afghans to the U.S. for resettlement — a population more than four times that of Jackson, Wyoming.

In terms of employment, Afghans arriving in the U.S. are expected to mostly compete against working class Americans for jobs. Analysis released this week shows that while the Afghan population in the U.S. has exploded to about 133,000 in recent years, the number of Afghans living on welfare and near poverty has also jumped.

In 2005, the number of Afghan immigrants with at least a bachelor’s degree was about the same as the number of native-born Americans with at least a bachelor’s degree — roughly 29 percent. Today, more than 35 percent of native-born Americans hold at least a bachelor’s degree and only 26 percent of Afghan immigrants.

Afghan immigrants continue to have high school drop-out rates, more than 22 percent, compared to native-born Americans, with less than seven percent.

Over the last 20 years, nearly a million refugees have been resettled in the nation — more than double that of residents living in Miami, Florida, and it would be the equivalent of annually adding the population of Pensacola, Florida.

Refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers nearly $9 billion every five years, according to research, and each refugee costs taxpayers about $133,000 over the course of their lifetime. Within five years, an estimated 16 percent of all refugees admitted will need housing assistance paid for by taxpayers.

The US Chamber of Commerce is a globalist organization promoting crony capitalism, that long ago abandoned free enterprise. Much of its activity is aimed at amnesty for illegal aliens and open borders. This is just another of its activities aimed at replacing Americans with foreign workers. In then case, most of the Afghans Biden brought in were NOT the ones who helped us in the conflict there. Biden brought in 6,000 to 7,000 SIV's, the Afghans who helped the US and its allies out of 88,000 eligible, but 110,000 other Afghans who were not eligible. Some have turned out to be rapists and robbers previously deported by the US, and over 40 so far on terrorist watch lists. Many had foreced ID's or no ID at all so cannot be properly vetted. We do not know who or what they really are. What thinking employer would want them as employees?
