From bad to worse — that’s the general consensus of the Biden administration thus far.
Not only have Biden’s military officials failed in their attempt to evacuate U.S. citizens, but their lack of planning has resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemen and countless innocent Afghani citizens.
To make matters worse, the Biden administration is handing off blank U.S. visas to Afghani terrorists who now have free reign in the United States. A former FBI counterterrorism official is sounding the alarm.
A former FBI special agent who tracked counterterrorism cases warned that terrorists in Afghanistan stand a high chance of being able to walk right onto U.S.-bound planes as a result of the Biden administration’s dissemination of blank visa papers throughout the country.
David Fox, an American trapped in Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul, revealed last week that he received a lookalike visa paper from the State Department. The same paper, he claimed, was sent to thousands of other citizens and immigrants who may qualify for the Special Immigrant Visa. The form is blank with no name, serial number, or bar code.
“What do you think happened when these people received a document like this that has no name? Of course, they printed out a thousand copies,” Fox added. “You have tens of thousands of Afghans who now have this kind of ridiculous, bogus document that the State Department created.”
The lack of information on the form, which is used to screen refugees seeking admission on planes out of the country, means that U.S. officials cannot know if someone with that paper was intended to have it or if the visa was photocopied.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the federal agency responsible for inspecting people at land, air, and sea ports of entry, said in a statement to the Washington Examiner that it tracks known or suspected terrorists through a multilayered, rigorous screening process.
Dr. Gary Ackerman, a professor at the University at Albany in New York, does not think “thousands” of already radicalized people will be showing up any time soon, but admitted to the ease in which these visa documents can be falsified using Photoshop and other photo editing software.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a Department of Homeland Security agency, will follow up with those admitted, and if any concerns arise after being released, Ackerman said the government can and will pursue them.
However, while that may be true, it’s common practice in the Biden administration to allow anyone and everyone across the border despite their criminal background. We’ve seen it on multiple occasions on the US-Mexico border. Illegal immigrants have surged the border and brought with them crime and devastation that once got them deported under the Trump administration.
