Biden administration to take in 100,000 Ukrainians and launches new initiative.

Background: Almost 3.7 million Ukrainians have fled the country, most going to nearby Poland and Hungary. Now, the Biden administration is preparing to welcome up to 100,000 Ukrainians.

Remembering the Afghanistan refugee crisis: After Biden's from Afghanistan, more than 68,000 relocated to the U.S. and resettled in communities across the country.

The current border crisis: The United States already sees record border crossing and encounters at the Southern border.

The European Democratic Resilience Initiative: The administration also announced launching The European Democratic Resilience Initiative with $1 billion in funding. The initiative aims to:

  • Bolster democracy
  • Document war crimes in Ukraine
  • Keep Ukraine's LGBTQ+ community safe
  • Providing refuge to displaced Ukrainians
  • Strengthen Ukraine's public health

Between the lines: The new initiative is different than prior military funding or assistance. Aiming to bolster democracy, the initiative will secure a strong American political influence in post-war Ukraine—possibly even stronger than before.

The Campaign against American Express

Background: After George Floyd's death, American Express, among other corporations, created an anti-racism initiative to teach employees critical race theory.

The critical race theory training taught employees to view interactions through an intersectional lens: race, gender, and sexual identity. They also taught employees how to rank themselves on a privileged hierarchy and identify whether they were oppressed or the oppressor.

  • The trainings were typical and included talks about white supremacy, white privilege, white guilt, microaggressions, how to talk to minorities, and capitalism's racism.

UnAmerican Express: Led by journalist Chris Rufo, the UnAmerican Express campaign seeks to expose AmEx's critical race theory-inspired policies as outlined here:

  • Incentivizing managers to hire minorities over more qualified candidates
  • Giving preferential contracts to Black-owned business
  • Instituting critical race theory trainings as mentioned above

Big picture: While the current campaign focuses on American Express, many large corporations have adopted similar beliefs since 2020. You can read about the examples we outlined here. Conservative employees in these corporations are marginalized, pressured, and voiceless.
