There Is No Vetting, by Michelle Malkin
Back in August, as the Biden administration prepared to dispose 82,000-plus Afghan refugees onto U.S. soil, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security ensured Americans that it was “working around the clock to conduct the security screening and vetting of vulnerable Afghans before they are permitted entry into the United States” and taking “multiple steps to ensure that those seeking entry do not pose a national security or public safety risk.”
We were informed that “the rigorous screening and vetting process, which is multi-layered and ongoing, involves biometric and biographic screenings conducted by intelligence, law enforcement, and counterterrorism professionals from DHS and DOD, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), and additional intelligence community partners.”
Biden’s DHS promoted an extensive evaluation of “fingerprints, photos, and other biometric and biographic data for every single Afghan before they are cleared to travel to the United States.” Afghan nationals, we were informed, “undergo a primary inspection when they arrive at a U.S. airport, and a secondary inspection is conducted as the circumstances require.”
In September, completely vetted Afghan refugee Bahrullah Noori, 20, was charged in Wisconsin with 3 counts of participating in sexual acts with a small, consisting of one presumably including making use of force, plus a 4th count of trying to participate in such acts with a small while utilizing force. The criminal activities were presumably devoted versus 12- and 14-year-old young boys in the restroom and suburbs of Fort McCoy. It’s the exact same base where another completely vetted Afghan refugee, Mohammad Haroon Imaad, 32, was charged in early September with attacking, choking and suffocating his better half.
Likewise in September, a female soldier at Fort Happiness reported being attacked on Sept. 19 “by a small group of male evacuees at the Dona Ana Complex in New Mexico.” The military base stated it was including “better lighting” to resolve the attack. No arrests have actually been made.
In October, completely vetted Afghan refugee Zabihullah Mohmand, 19, was charged with raping an 18-year-old woman in Missoula, Montana.
This is certainly the suggestion of the iceberg, provided my previous reporting on more than 60 refugee-jihadists (“refujihadis“) who slipped past our “rigorous” and “thorough” vetting system over the previous years. In my long experience, independent efforts to track criminal arrests of refugees and immigrants are stymied by political correctness media whitewashers who obscure the nationwide origin and citizenship status of suspects.
Just how much of an impression is the “multilayered,” “biometric” and “biographic” vetting of Afghan refugees?
Over the vacations, with nearly no news protection outside the Washington Inspector and New York City Post, a Senate Republican politician memo reported that “almost none of the 82,000 people airlifted from Kabul in August were vetted before being admitted to the United States, despite claims to the contrary from the Biden administration.”
The memo supposedly kept in mind that “Afghans without any identification or records were approved for travel to the United States as long as their fingerprints or other biometrics were not already in a U.S. Government database and connected to derogatory information (e.g., a known terrorist, terrorist affiliate, or criminal). Federal officials relayed that few Afghans know their birthday, which has resulted in a number of evacuees’ date of birth logged as January 1.”
In October, The Wall Street Journal reported that Republican legislators had actually been pushing the Biden administration on “how many Afghans traveled without any paperwork.” No responses yet. Tick tock.
Andrew R. Arthur of the Center for Migration Research makes an asset about how federal authorities confessed they didn’t have any training, anyhow, in determining fake Afghan files from genuine ones: “What good would a requirement that evacuees provide identity documents do if those reviewing the documents cannot tell good ones from fake ones?”
In early November, Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, exposed in a flooring speech that “there are at least 10 evacuees who made it past all this screening into the United States prior to the national security concerns being raised and causing them currently to be detained in federal facilities as a national security threat. That’s 10. We don’t know how many more there are.”
Open borders plus bleeding hearts equate to a group headache. Homeland security is a joke. There is no vetting.
When will you find out, America?
