Ted Cruise has lambasted President Joe Biden for allowing pedophile Afghan refugees into the country with their “child brides!”
Leading Republican Senator Ted Cruz blasted President Biden after he heard of recent reports that a number of adult male Afghan refugees had arrived in the United States with child brides.
“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,” the Texas Republican said in a statement released to the press.
“These reports are credible and horrifying. President Biden had no plan for a secure, orderly, and responsible withdrawal from Afghanistan. Instead, the President and Biden-Harris officials imposed arbitrary deadlines for political purposes.”
Cruz said he had argued for refugees to face additional vetting in third countries and accused the president of importing “an acute human rights crisis into the United States.”
The issue came to the public spotlight after an internal State Department document “reported multiple cases of minor females who presented as ‘married’ to adult Afghan men, as well as polygamous families,” arriving at Fort McCoy, about 100 miles northwest of Madison, Wisconsin.
The document went on to ask with official guidance about how best to proceed, the Associated Press reported.
The Senator makes an excellent point. The AP reports that as part of Biden’s botched Afghanistan evacuation, which was the result of Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal, no one noticed that the female wives of the Afghanistan man were a considerable amount younger than their “husbands.” Not until they landed in Wisconsin. It was only then that US officials started looking into reports that “in the frantic evacuation of desperate Afghans from Kabul, older men were admitted together with young girls they claimed as ‘brides’ or otherwise sexually abused.”
The AP’s reporting has been confirmed by CBS News. Several Afghan women and girls — when they were at the Emirates Humanitarian City evacuation center — reported that their families forced them into marriage in order to be eligible for evacuation. Rest assured, though.
