If you’re in a plane that’s about to crash, you’re instructed to apply any life-saving equipment to yourself first. Afterwards, save those that you can around you. This should’ve been the policy that was adapted to the #AfghanExit strategy – to get Americans safe first, then work on rescuing as many refugees as possible.
We can (and should) accept those who feel the need to flee their home country – if they felt as if their lives were in danger. But rescuing Americans should’ve been first and THE #TopPriority.
There’s no justifiable reason for rescuing people from a country that we tried to help BEFORE rescuing our own people, first.
Before we can adequately help the world, we need to help #AmericaFirst.
