According to Johnson, the vetting process was remarkably lax, limiting refugees to anyone not on a terror watch list.
“Now, how many ISIS terrorists do you think are actually on those on those watch lists?” Johnson asked.
“We have no idea who all was airlifted out of there,” he continued. “And I still have no confidence that there was a thorough vetting job done of the 60,000 to 70,000 people who have currently been living in this country.”
In the immediate aftermath of America’s disasterous surrender of Afghanistan to the Taliban, the Biden administration falsely claimed that it planned on thoroughly vetting all new refugees.
But Johnson drew parallels with the open-door policy at the US–Mexico border, suggesting that the bad-faith Democrat leadership never intended on keeping such promises.
“They never were going to do that,” he said. “They had no capability of doing it. They just, again, played a numbers game.”
According to Johnson, Biden’s weakness has become apparent to other world leaders, and this will continue to weaken America’s position.
“This is just one of the many disasters created by the Biden administration,” he said. “Why do you think Putin is knocking on the door of Ukraine right now? It’s the weakness that President Biden’s policies are creating across the board in America.”
Unfortunately for Americans, all of the Afghan refugees created by our disastrous exit are now settled in various regions around the country, making additional screening difficult, if not impossible.
Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, president and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which has profited nicely by dumping Muslims into small towns across the nation, praised her work, but said that there’s still more to do.
“It’s a really important milestone in Operation Allies Welcome, but I want to stress that this mission isn’t over,” she said.
“Successful resettlement and integration won’t happen in just a matter of days or weeks,” she added. “Our new Afghan neighbors are going to need our support and friendship for months and years to come because the challenges they face won’t disappear overnight.”
