Most Americans do not want to foot the bill for relocating refugees from Afghanistan to the United States.

A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey reveals 35 percent of likely U.S. voters believe the Biden Administration’s plan to bring 95,000 refugees from Afghanistan to the U.S. for permanent resettlement is a good decision. Forty-seven percent said it is a bad decision and 17 percent are unsure.

House Democrats voted in favor of a $6.4 billion request to pay for resettling the refugees. However, just 32 percent of voters believe Congress should approve that request.

Fifty-six percent said Congress should not approve taxpayer money to resettle the refugees.

A slight majority (57 percent) of Democrats believe Biden’s decision to bring 95,000 Afghanistan refugees for permanent settlement is a good decision. Only 16 percent of Republicans and 31 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Seventy-one percent of Republicans and 45 percent of unaffiliated voters said it is a bad decision. Twenty-six percent of Democrats agree it is a bad call.

Eighty percent of Republicans and 58 percent of unaffiliated voters said Congress should not approve the spending request for resettling these refugees.
