Chief Watchdog Group Says There Are Security Concerns After Finding Many Afghan Refugees Not Vetted

(FeaturedNews.com) – When the Biden administration failed miserably at the Afghanistan withdrawal and began welcoming immigrants into the US, the president promised it would not impact American security. Now, evidence shows otherwise.

The Department of Defense inspector general’s February 11 report to Congress states the administration did not properly vet Afghan immigrants before letting them into the United States. In addition, the inspector general discovered the government could not locate at least 28 evacuees who had derogatory information on their records.

The report explains that the process to vet refugees didn’t allow proper data comparisons between Customs and Border Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security for adequate biometric screenings. There were also issues with sharing information about any red flags coming up for immigrants with safe haven commanders who should have known if they had people of concern at their locations.

The IG noted the combination of improper background checks and recordkeeping has led to Afghans now in the United States who have ties to terrorist activities. Having individuals with such backgrounds in the country is a national security risk.

In remarks on August 22, 2021, President Joe Biden promised Americans every evacuee would undergo security screenings. The IG’s report tells a different story. Did the president mislead the public on purpose, or was he not aware of what was happening within his own Defense Department?
