Charity begins at home. Thousands in the United States are facing eviction when the Moratorium is lifted. Thousands of Afghans will be placed in homes paid for the by the United States. Some dollars might come from the taxes we paid. Nothing is wrong with helping others, but your country should always be first.

Millions across this country is facing eviction because of Covid-19. Stimulus checks were spent out to families to give back to the economy. Most low-income families has not paid rent in a year, the checks helped but was not enough to take care of a year of rent . I do agree that some people did everything else but use that money to help with rent, utilities bill and other thing they needed. Americans Who lived in Afghanistan and some Afghans came to the United States to start a new life. Will the U.S. sat them up in housing, while millions are facing evictions.
