Governor Calls On Biden To Halt Refugee Resettlement Program After Afghan Evacuee Charged With Sexual Assault

Montana Governor Greg Gianforte demanded a halt to the Biden administration’s resettlement program following news that an Afghan evacuee has been charged with rape in the city of Missoula.

Zabihullah Mughmand, an Afghan teenager placed in Montana by U.S. State Department was taken into custody and charged with sexual abuse after receiving a 911 call from the victim.

Missoula’s case isn’t the first instance in which an Afghan refugee was charged with sexual assault.

He claimed that the incident had been agreed to by both parties.

Detectives did not confirm Muhmand’s evacuee status, but Senator Steve Daines revealed that he was admitted to the United States and placed in Montana under humanitarian parole.

Greg Gianforte, Montana governor, cited the case of rape as an argument to stop the refugee resettlement programme.

Gianforte said he has no issue welcoming “fully-vetted Afghan allies to Montana,” but that “this situation and others across the country raise serious concerns about whether the Biden administration is meeting its obligations to fully vet Afghans prior to resettlement.”

“I’m calling on President Biden to immediately halt resettlements to Montana until federal agencies provide me with adequate assurance that Afghans coming to Montana are fully-vetted in accordance with federal law,” he demanded.

While Afghanistan fell to the Taliban in Afghanistan, President Biden insists that all Afghan refugees be properly vetted.

“At these sites where they are landing, we are conducting thorough … security screening for everyone who is not a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident,” Biden said.

“Anyone arriving in the United States will have undergone a background check.”

President Biden insisted we “welcome these Afghans who helped us in the war effort over the last 20 years to their new home in the United States of America” only “once screened and cleared.”

“That is who we are, that is what America is,” he said.

Wondering how much the 19-year old Afghan evacuee who is now facing rape charges in Montana contributed to the ongoing war for 20 years? Was that something they discovered during the vetting?

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) has claimed there is “really no vetting” of Afghan refugees by the administration.

“Joe Biden screwed it up,” Cotton said, following reports that some individuals from Afghanistan with “no particular ties to the United States” had been evacuated.

“There’s really no vetting. It’s hard to do in Afghanistan,” Cotton said.

“The Biden administration is taking their name, if it is their name, and testing it against databases, and if they don’t come back, it’s like, ‘Well, they must be fine to go,” he added. “Again, we have no idea who these people are.”

Cotton spoke out about the alleged assault on a young soldier at Fort Bliss, El Paso and sex crimes committed by Afghan men at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin.

Bahrullah Norori is charged with sexually assaulting a juvenile aged 12-15 years in Fort McCoy.

According to Washington Times, Noori was part of the huge evacuation operation by the Biden Administration following the fall of the Afghan government.
