    Leading the effort to ban the Vietnamese refugees was California’s Gov. Jerry Brown. Other prominent Democrats calling for the ban were Delaware’s Sen. Joe Biden, former presidential “peace candidate” George McGovern, and New York Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman.

    Taft recalled another reason liberals opposed the refugees: “They said they had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, they didn’t want these people.”

    “They didn’t want any of these refugees, because they had also unemployment,” she told NPR.


    “They had already a large number of foreign-born people there. They had – they said they had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, they didn’t want these people.”


    Author Larry Clinton Thompson recounted in his book, “Refugee Workers in the Indochina Exodus,” that Brown said, “We can’t be looking 5,000 miles away and at the same time neglecting people who live here.”


    The CQ Almanac shows New York’s Elizabeth Holtzman – who was one of the House’s most visible liberal congresswomen — opposed helping the Vietnamese refugees. She said, according to CQ Almanac, “some of her constituents felt that the same assistance and compassion was not being shown to the elderly, unemployed and poor in this country.”

    Suck on it Libtards....
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Yes and it was them, the liberal democrat who took us to war in Vietnam and then in the end dishonored America by walking out on these people that we were supposedly fighting for their freedom. Screw a democrat, you find most of today's old liberal men in office were either deferred, ran to Canada, or turned traitor like Kerry and songbird mc cain. The Vietnamese that did make their way to America have fully complied with the requirements to be citizens, unlike these people we see in the southern hemisphere that only come here to send those Pesos home, they despise America and don't give a damned about declaring any allegiance to America. I'll take the Vietnamese over any of these thieves crawling across our border

    This was before the democrat party learned how to exploit and use brown people for their own political gain.

    I remember reading years ago that the purpose of Vietnam was not to win it, but to keep Vietnam fighting for years while accumulating war debt. It is the debt that put Vietnam in the hands of the globalists. Vietnam was lost because it was not supposed to be won.
