The US is facing a refugee crisis like never before, and refugees from the government are flooding over the White House’s borders beyond Washington D.C. into Virginia, Maryland, and other states.
The White House refugees are mostly fleeing in order to find a better job and to be able to make a better life for their children somewhere other than the failing Trump Administration. It is a compassionate choice for their families, but America is struggling to absorb so many people at once.
The latest wave of White House refugees include chief-of-staff Reince Priebus, press secretary Sean Spicer, and communications director Anthony Scaramucci. Unfortunately, many political pundits and commentators have expressed dissatisfaction that the White House is not sending its best, and polls indicate that Americans are weary of taking in so many White House refugees at once.
“It’s gotta stop,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York. “These White House refugees don’t share our values of honesty and integrity, and, frankly, who is going to pay for these refugees? It’s unfortunate what’s happening to them, but as of today I am calling to build a big wall, a big beautiful wall around the White House to keep them out. We are a nation of rules, and America is just not meant to have White House officials be employed for such short periods of time to be ‘anchor staffers.’ Michael Flynn lasted only a few weeks, Anthony Scaramucci lasted only days—if we want to remain a healthy nation, I’m afraid the wall is absolutely necessary.”
Priebus and Spicer have reportedly filed claims for asylum, noting that their lives may be in danger if they are forced to return to the White House due to President Trump’s volatile temper and all-around terrible personality, but the backlog on such claims are flooded.
Immigration authorities recently lost contact with both Priebus and Spicer, but it appears they took matters into their own feet. The last sighting of the pair took place in Kentucky, and it appears they are headed West.
