TRENDING: Reporter turns to Twitter in desperate plea: Biden admin waiting until 2024 to address shocking issue

The State Department launched the Welcome Corps Thursday to provide American citizens with the opportunity to privately sponsor refugees. The program works with a consortium of organizations, including the Church World Service (CWS), a faith-based nonprofit group that has in the past advocated for abolishing ICE.

In a 2021 tweet, the CWS tweeted the hashtag “AbolishICE.” The organization has also advocated to pull funding from the government agency.

“Instead of providing excessive and immoral resources for inhumane treatment of immigrants and asylum seekers, the United States should put those resources into programs that expand our capacity to welcome immigrants with the dignity and respect everyone deserves,” the CWS said in September.

The organization’s involvement with the Biden administration, however, doesn’t stop there. The organization was also tapped to head the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Case Management Pilot Program to monitor illegal immigrants awaiting their court dates in the U.S., Fox News reported in October.

Should the Biden administration partner with an organization trying to abolish ICE?

The group’s new role means it will help implement Americans’ sponsorship of refugees with U.S. government funding, according to the State Department. The CWS will oversee “vetting and certification of private sponsors through an application process,” give training to refugee sponsors and monitor the sponsorships.

“We are thrilled to support Welcome Corps as it expands the joy of sponsorship to new groups and communities across the United States and increases our nation’s capacity to resettle refugees.” CWS CEO Rick Santos said in a statementThursday of the State Department’s new program.

“The Welcome Corps builds upon a decades-long proud tradition of community sponsorship and local partnership in refugee resettlement. We look forward to more communities having the opportunity to experience the life-changing work of sponsorship by coming alongside new arrivals with the friendship and support they need to thrive,” Santos added.

Neither the State Department nor the CWS responded to requests for comment.

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?

Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?

Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?

No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.

Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.

WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
