Yesterday BizPac Review posted an article about one of the situations America is encountering in bringing into our country the thousands of refugees from Afghanistan. There are significant cultural differences between America’s culture and that of Afghanistan. For instance, pedophilia is very common in Afghanistan and rarely addressed. Child marriage is also very common and considered acceptable. We are bringing in people who routinely engage in both of these practices.
The article reports:
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is demanding answers over a bombshell report that sex traffickers and their victims may have been among the 120,000 people evacuated from Afghanistan.
The problem is that the administration doesn’t really seem to know who was evacuated. All that’s known for certain is that few of the Afghan allies who’d worked alongside America’s veterans and thus earned the privilege of being evacuated actually got out.
“[A] small percentage of the Afghan citizens who got out are the ones the U.S. pledged to place at the top of its priority list: the thousands who had worked for the U.S. and its allies as well as employees of nongovernmental groups and media organizations,” Bloomberg reported Friday.
“In fact, many of the Afghans who were most vulnerable to the Taliban — applicants for the Special Immigrant Visa program intended for translators and others who aided the American war effort — didn’t make it out because the U.S. told them going to the airport would be too dangerous. And they never got a call to come before the last U.S. plane departed to meet President Joe Biden’s Aug. 31 departure deadline,” the outlet added.
And so who did make it out of the Middle Eastern nation? According to the Associated Press, some of the evacuees may have been elderly sex traffickers.
…“There have been multiple cases of child brides and polygamous families from Afghanistan arriving at military bases here in America as part of their botched evacuation,” he (Texas Senator Ted Cruz) said.
“Reports even suggest that some of the exploitation was a direct result of the Biden administration’s chaotic evacuation process, a process that has enabled and incentivized coercion and abuse to the point where Biden Administration officials may well be complicit in child trafficking,” the senator added.
The article concludes:
Concerns about the government’s screening measures have once again become an issue because of the Biden administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the subsequent rushed evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people.
And just like in times past, the left has begun to reflexively accuse anyone who broaches screening standards of being a racist.
It is truly unfortunate that the withdrawal from Afghanistan was handled so badly. An orderly withdrawal would have saved those who helped us and prevented what is currently happening. Now we need to take the time to sort out who we evacuated and do what we can to prevent pedophilia and child trafficking from becoming even more prevalent in America than they already are.
