America is at its best when we come together to support those in need during times of crisis. This is one of those moments. Across the country, Americans are living out the values that Veterans hold so dear by welcoming our Afghan allies as our new neighbors and helping them build a new life in the United States. This is an opportunity for the men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces to really shine. Welcome.US is a coalition that’s built by leaders across sectors, political parties, and all walks of life who are coming together to do everything we can to support Afghans seeking safety.

Everyone has a role to play, big or small, to help welcome our new Afghan neighbors. Tens of thousands of Afghans, some of whom were endangered because they chose to join our fight for freedom over the last two decades, are seeking safety. It’s on us to help these families rebuild their lives in communities across the country.

Anyone can be part of this effort, no matter where you live. No one needs experience. Welcome.US is looking for people who are willing to support and welcome our new neighbors.

    You know the VA is broken beyond repair when they start concentrating on foreigners while veterans cant even get a diagnosis.

    What does this have to do with Veterans?

    Stephen, You are lying! Muslims have fought for America in every war starting with the Revolutionary War. I have Muslim friends who have gone out of their way to help me several times. And finally, why did they risk their lives and their families if they hate us so much? Glenn

    A question is ofter asked, Why to they (Muslims) hate us? A knowledge of the publications used my Muslims to base their behavior in life answers that question. The KORAN and the HADITH plus SCHIRA LAW all instruct Muslims that all people who do not submit to and join Islam are infidels and must be destroyed. This has been their lifestyle since the 7th Century. Muslims believe that if they lie cheat and steal from infidels (us) they will have the approval of their God, Allah; in addition if they murder an infidel they will have a place in heaven. Yet, this website promotes the importation of Muslims into America and they are dedicated to the destruction of America: the Constitution, our laws, the American Culture, and the very lives of American men women and children who are not Muslim. This website ignores the murder of 3000 people on September 11, 2001, in New York city. Those victims death is what Muslims hope for the rest of Americans. I will not be welcoming Muslims into America because I believe that it will be suicide for the American dream and the Constitution that protects that dream.
