Afghan refugees heading to Anchorage

Catholic Social Services says that between 50-100 refugees from Afghanistan will be settling in Anchorage starting later this month.

The news of the incoming refugees leaked out last week. A memo to parents of Goldenview Elementary School from the school said that as many as 300 refugees were coming to Anchorage, but the actual number is now said to be closer to 100, according to sources in the Municipality.

These incoming refugees are the lucky ones who were able to get out of Afghanistan during the final chaotic days of American involvement in fighting the terrorists in that country. They are considered allies to the U.S. interests during the past 20 years of war. Some are women and children, some are translators or people who worked for the U.S. miitary.

Catholic Social Services is the lead agency in Alaska that helps with refugee resettlement.

“Our hearts are with all those who are affected by the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan – both the people fleeing their homes and our military personnel,” Catholic Social Services said in a statement.

“According to the White House, the United States has evacuated more than 116,000 people out of Afghanistan since mass evacuations began on August 14, 2021. As part of this effort, our Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services (RAIS) program will be welcoming Afghan evacuees to Alaska. These evacuees will be arriving in Alaska from September to March, fleeing their homeland,” the group stated.

“We are honored to welcome these new arrivals to Alaska, but we will need your help to make sure they have everything they need to resettle,” CSS said. Learn more about how to help the organization prepare for the refugees at this link.

Out of curiosity, how cold does it get in Afghanistan?

Seems Alaska is pretty harsh.

Some areas of Afghanistan can have pretty cold winters.

Winter was when fighting stopped and everyone went home to stay warm, rest, and rearm.  I wish I had pics of the Marines moving through chest high snow up in the mountains surprising the fuck out of Taliban in their caves and huts and killing therm.  There's a reason they called the Marines the "Deathwalkers".

Only if you have to fight in it, otherwise, Afghanistan in the winter is beautiful.  Actually, it's quite beautiful, period.  As in most places, it's people that turn it into shit.

Like India is with Mike cows,

Alaska is the same with moose.

They walk down the main streets.
nobody seems bothered either.

Maybe discovery needs to look into how humans and moose coexist in Anchorage.

Keep them contained in Anchorage please thanks bye.

If I remember correctly Anchorage already has a real diverse, (perverse?) population already.  Like really diverse over 100 languages spoken.  The Asian grocery lunch counters are pretty damn good and cheap.

My dog is completely indifferent to their presence except small calves. She hates them but doesn't give a shit about FL deer which are about the same size.

We sent Hmong there after Vietnam and there is a pretty big community still there, I believe.

If the Afghans stay in Alaska's southern coastal regions and islands then they won't notice much of a difference. If they go inland to Fairbanks or somewhere then they aren't going to be used to that much cold. Big difference between the temps in the single digits and temps of 40 below and colder.

Send them to shitholes like Anchorage who want them. I only get pissed when they send them to relatively conservative places like Boise. Let the big blue cities take them.
