In a shocking report, the Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) accuses President Joe Biden’s administration of resettling Afghan nationals “who were not completely vetted” throughout the country.
According to a report by Breitbart News, more than 86,000 Afghans have been resettled in American communities since Biden created a “humanitarian parole” route in August 2021, when the U.S. Armed Forces withdrew from Afghanistan.
Many of these individuals were not personally checked or interviewed.
A bombshell now being reported claims that the Biden administration “allowed or paroled” tens of thousands of Afghans “who were not thoroughly vetted” before they entered the United States and may “represent a risk to national security,” according to a DHS IG investigation.
Details from the report state:
We determined some information used to vet evacuees through U.S. Government databases, such as name, date of birth, identification number, and travel document data, was inaccurate, incomplete, or missing.
We also determined CBP admitted or paroled evacuees who were not fully vetted into the United States.
We attribute DHS’ challenges to not having: (1) a list of Afghan evacuees who were unable to provide sufficient identification documents; (2) a contingency plan to support similar emergency situations; and (3) standardized policies.
As a result, DHS may have admitted or paroled individuals into the United States who pose a risk to national security and the safety of local communities. [Emphasis added]
In January 2022, we issued DHS a Notice of Findings and Recommendations document notifying the Department of the urgent need to take action to address security risks of evacuees from Afghanistan who were admitted or paroled into the United States without sufficient identification documents to ensure proper screening and vetting.
The investigation by the IG found that DHS “did not always have critical data to properly screen, vet, or inspect Afghan evacuees arriving as part” of the substantial Afghan resettlement operation.
Details from the report indicate that the federal databases used to vet Afghans “such as name, DOB, identification number, and travel document data, was inaccurate, incomplete, or missing.”
The Afghans in question were resettled in American communities at the request of the Biden administration, some of which were later found to be national security threats with ties to terrorism.
One Afghan has already been deported, and DHS officials said another is entrenched in deportation proceedings.
