The truth is a lot of these people who helped the US often have families of 30 member or so, individual in each of these ‘said’ families had grown exponentially, Too bad the US had not focused on children marriages, multiple wives and birth control! I’m not sure this is what the US nor what the world citizens signed up for…
I find the Afghanis who didn’t make it to the US, incredibly ungrateful, Albania was in fact willing to accept them, perhaps they should have stayed in Afghanistan! The Rescue Project got them out, when does the refugees accept personal responsibility, look at Ukraine.

2) decided she would only use fictional stories
