Republicans have asked Jor Biden and members of his administration about the vetting practices for Afghanis Biden brought to this country, including those who appear on the “No Fly” list. The Biden camp has admitted that people on the “No Fly” list have been brought to this country but refuse to say how many. They have also refused to turn over information on how they vetted Afghanis who have been released into the country.
Alejandro Mayorkas the head of DHS has said that we do not vet 100% of the Afghanis in personal interviews, but again, he refuses to say what the percentage is. Remember, Mayorkas would not be telling a lie even if they only vetted one of the 72,000 they have brought to this country since one is less than 72,000.
Just keep this number in mind, 19. That is the number of terrorists needed to pull off the 911 attacks that were planned out in Afghanistan in 2011. Just ask yourself how confident do you feel that the Biden administration is taking the necessary precautions with those that they are allowing into this country. I have more faith in gas station sushi myself.
On December 16, 2021, Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Josh Hawley (R-MO), and Rick Scott (R-FL) sent a letter to Mayorkas and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken asking for information.
We write today to request information about how your agencies are vetting/screening these individuals [we] urge you to immediately address the lack of transparency regarding this evacuation and resettlement operation and be straightforward with the American people.
They didn’t even bother to reply.
As of January 3, Johnson’s office told Breitbart News that they have yet to get a response from the administration about their inquiry despite requesting that the information be made available to them by December 30.
Mayorkas has admitted that vetting procedures for Afghans arriving in the U.S. are minimal.
“We are not conducting in-person, refugee interviews of 100 percent [of] individuals,” Mayorkas said during a congressional hearing in November.
The Senators asked Mayorkas and Blinken to provide the number of Afghans connected to derogatory information, interviewed in-person, put into secondary screening proceedings, arrested once in the U.S., deported from the U.S., put into deportation proceedings, and sent back to a third country for further vetting.
