According to the latest research from the Pew Research Center, more than half of Americans are not confident in Joe Biden’s Administration’s ability to vet the tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees the Admin. continues to bring to the United States for resettlement.
The Pew Research Center survey showed that 55% of American adults lack confidence in the Biden Administration to adequately vet the approximate 95,000 Afghans they hope to resettle across 46 states over the next 12 months.
Approximately 27% of Americans said they are “not too confident” in the government’s vetting abilities, 28% said they are “not at all confident.” Even among registered Democrats, or voters who lean Democratic, more than 30% said they do not have confidence in the Administration’s abilities. In addition, nearly 83% of Republicans, including those who lean Republican, reported also lacking confidence in the vetting process.
Inversely, 12% of Americans said they are “very confident” in the vetting of Afghan evacuees on their way and parolees already in the U.S., 31% stated that they are “somewhat confident” in the federal government’s abilities.
Despite this widespread lack of confidence among Americans, most states have told the Biden Administration that they will accept and resettle Afghan parolees, including 18 states helmed by Republican voters.
Montana Representative Matt Rosendale is one of the few elected officials in Washington to sound the alarm over the Biden Administration’s extremely lax vetting procedure.
We have zero capacity to vet these folks properly … we’ve got a lot of people that we don’t know anything about,” Rosendale told Breitbart News last week. “We’re starting to see the crimes take place on the military bases … we have zero idea of what kind of security issues they’re bringing with them. We don’t know anything about these folks.
Breitbart News reports that the vetting process has already suffered four high-profile failures. The vetting process failed to keep out two Afghan men accused of domestic abuse and child sex crimes in two cases.
In details revealed last week, two Afghan men were hit with federal charges for sexual and violent crimes they allegedly committed while living on the Fort McCoy base in Wisconsin. One of the Afghans is accused of strangling and suffocating his wife who he has allegedly abused for years. The other Afghan is accused of molesting 12-year-old and 14-year-old boys and threatening them with violence if they reported the alleged abuse.
Additionally, the Biden Administration has also reportedly brought back to the U.S. two Afghan men who had already been convicted of felonies in the U.S. and deported.
The Breitbart article concludes by retelling facts from recent NPR, and AP reports.
National Public Radio (NPR) reported days ago that Afghans are arriving in the U.S. sometimes with “no paperwork” to prove their identities or with “just scraps of paper.” Likewise, the Associated Press reported that Afghans have been caught lying about their identities or destroying their passports to conceal their true identities.
