Back in August, as the Biden administration prepared to dump 82,000-plus Afghan refugees onto U.S. soil, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security assured 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 told 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 touted a thorough review 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 told, “undergo a primary inspection when they arrive at a U.S. airport, and a secondary inspection is conducted as the circumstances require.”

In September, thoroughly vetted Afghan refugee Bahrullah Noori, 20, was charged in Wisconsin with three counts of engaging in sexual acts with a minor, including one allegedly involving the use of force, plus a fourth count of attempting to engage in such acts with a minor while using force. The crimes were allegedly committed against 12- and 14-year-old boys in the bathroom and residential areas of Fort McCoy. It’s the same base where another thoroughly vetted Afghan refugee, Mohammad Haroon Imaad, 32, was charged in early September with assaulting, choking and suffocating his wife.

Also in September, a female soldier at Fort Bliss reported being assaulted on Sept. 19 “by a small group of male evacuees at the Dona Ana Complex in New Mexico.” The military base said it was adding “better lighting” to address the attack. No arrests have been made.

In October, thoroughly vetted Afghan refugee Zabihullah Mohmand, 19, was charged with raping an 18-year-old girl in Missoula, Montana.

This is undoubtedly the tip of the iceberg, given my past reporting on more than 60 refugee-jihadists (“refujihadis“) who slipped past our “rigorous” and “thorough” vetting system over the past decade. In my long experience, independent efforts to track criminal arrests of refugees and immigrants are stymied by politically correct media whitewashers who obscure the national origin and citizenship status of suspects.

How much of an illusion is the “multilayered,” “biometric” and “biographic” vetting of Afghan refugees?

Over the holidays, with almost zero news coverage outside the Washington Examiner and New York Post, a Senate Republican 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.”

ORDER IT NOW

The memo reportedly noted 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 lawmakers had been pressing the Biden administration on “how many Afghans traveled without any paperwork.” No answers yet. Tick tock.

Andrew R. Arthur of the Center for Immigration Studies makes a good point about how federal officials admitted they didn’t have any training, anyway, in identifying phony Afghan documents from real 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, revealed in a floor 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 equal a demographic nightmare. Homeland security is a joke. There is no vetting.

When will you learn, America?

  1. Time to take extra steps to protect ourselves, our children, and our sheep and goats. Opens up a new field of recruitment for Antifa.

  2. Thousands of Haitians camped under a bridge in Texas, denied entrance to this country having been in South and Central American countries for up to a decade. Camped on our border demanding to be let in.

    Biden solved the problem by secretly loading them onto airplanes and flying them to American cities, then having news media show the empty encampment and tell us the problem was solved. They did not, of course, tell us HOW the problem was solved.

  3. Weird.

    I don’t remember a National ballot where USA citizens ever got the opportunity to vote either for our against the proposition that Citizens of the USA should be replaced by 10’s of millions of ignorant, tribal, failed people from around the world, and that we taxpayers should pay for our very replacement.

    It’s almost as if the elites simply decided to replace us without giving us a chance to say yes or no.

    Pretty much like the choice they gave you 20 odd years ago when they decided to invade/occupy the damn place....

  4. The government statement describing the multi-layered vetting aspect enumerates six agencies (and says there are also others.) The implication is that they are all doing their own work, independently. I am suspicious because I have seen the scam before in which a single effort is performed by “A” and then B, C, D, and E all merely read A”s report and rubber-stamp it. A government press release then says A, B, C, D, and E have all concluded such and such.

    Oh, I do, believe me. You didn’t notice my several comments under that mess? Here’s just one:


    Anyone who wants to see what Mrs. Malkin really thinks can take 20 or 30 minutes with the superb Search tool to review her columns about

    “Bolton” – She endorsed him circa 2003-2005, but didn’t find an occasion to once write his name during his last White House (Trump) gig.

    “Assange” and “Wikileaks” – Vilified (although not in the context of publishing the scandalous Clinton/DNC emails).

    I knew essentially nothing about her before she was added to The Unz Review roster. Test her yourself with your own searches — it won’t take an hour, and unless I’ve missed something you’ll see that she has never renounced anything she’s done over the years on behalf of Big War. After President Cheney left office, she just slid over to outrage porn about Critical Race Theory, Black Lives Matter, and other divide & conquer domestic issues. And when forced to by current events like Afghanistan, she still tells readers what they want to hear (Don’t invite!) instead of what they need to hear (Don’t invade!).

    Why has Mrs. Malkin nothing to say about whether and how Uncle Sam should be trying to Exceptionalize! places like China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, and Yemen? She’s had plenty of time since landing here for Chinadidit smears and pushing the little Red White and Blue buttons on the sheep who still fall for Beltway politics.

    I have raised her bona fides repeatedly, but am never refuted. Ready to discuss with those unafraid to look over her Archive.
     

    This is why you’re now as relevant as George Will.
