“Trump has definitely set back the democratic norm here in the United States,” said Ronald Klain, Joe Biden’s newly appointed Chief of Staff said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

“[Trump] has been doing that for four years, and that’s ramped up since the election,” continued Klain.

Klain continued to bash Trump, saying that “he could not really run on his record, and the voters rejected his leadership, and since then Donald Trump has been rejecting democracy.”

“We know we have to reach out to republicans, we know that we have to bring this country together,” continued Klain. “In fact that the entire essence of Joe Biden’s campaign for the Presidency. Trying to heal this nation, repair its soul, restore its backbone, united the country. And uniting this country is what [Biden] is doing.”

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
