Blackburn Brings Attention To A Fact The Biden Admin Is Trying To Avoid

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said the evacuation of Afghanistan resulted in evacuating people who weren’t vetted and trying to vet them on the back end, when there’s no way to do so due to the disorder in Afghanistan, while only 3% of the evacuees were vetted under the process for special immigrant visas. Backburn told Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit” why they should concern us all:

“[Y]ou have people bringing in — these men that are bringing in child brides. We have heard of these assault cases. We know that that indictment has been issued. We know the investigation is taking place on the attack on our female servicemember, and these are individuals who have not been vetted. There is a very specific vetting process for our special immigrant visa holders. But look, out of the people that they got out, that they were bragging about this as an extraordinary success, only 3% were visa holders, 3%. … And now, they’re trying to vet them on the back end.”

She added, “You cannot call 1-800 Taliban and find out if somebody is who they claim to be. Because your government institutions, your processes are basically nonexistent in Afghanistan. Because the Taliban’s a terrorist group.”

While Blackburn’s “1-800 Taliban” comment was comical, she’s also absolutely right. There isn’t a surefire way to know if any of these evacuees are terrorists or have terrorist ties. Not if the United States government doesn’t have a system in place to properly vet them beforehand.

Another obstacle is, the US is a big place. Just like people crossing the southern border, once they’re released, it’s almost impossible to track them down. Especially with Biden’s slack immigration security processes.

It’s already not looking good. Terrorism aside, two Afghan evacuees were already arrested and face federal charges. One man was arrested last Wednesday for engaging in sexual acts with a child had been abusing two boys, ages 12 and 14, in a bathroom and housing area of the Fort McCoy military base in western Wisconsin, an affidavit alleges.

The other allegedly strangled and tried to suffocate his wife at the same base,
