‘Madness’: Biden’s DHS may give work permits to Afghans before vetting them to even be here

Share:

WASHINGTON, DC – The Biden administration’s fiscal year 2022 continuing resolution spending plan, quietly released Tuesday, reportedly includes a provision providing green cards to thousands of unvetted Afghan nationals settled in the United States, giving them refugee status and a waiver of terrorism as grounds for removal.

The majority of the 48,000 Afghans already settled in the United States do not qualify for Special Immigration Visas (SIVs) or refugee status. Instead, they have been provided “humanitarian parole” to enter the U.S. without being vetted through immigration.

In addition to the waiver of the terrorism disqualification, labeling visa-less Afghans as refugees will allow the administration to place them on welfare. The move would basically treat unqualified Afghans as refugees anyway.

A continuing resolution (CR) is required for the federal government to appropriate monies to various departments for the fiscal year, which runs from October 1 to Sept 30.

In the resolution, the Biden administration wrote:

“Without the anomaly, paroled individuals from Afghanistan would not be eligible for resettlement assistance, entitlement programs such as Medicaid and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program food assistance, and other benefits.”

The continuing resolution is an appropriations bill and should not establish major policies or proposals, however it does permit adjustments. The Congressional Research Service explained:

“The duration and amount of funds in the CR, and purposes for which they may be used for specified activities, may be adjusted through anomalies.

“Anomalies may also designate a specific amount or rate of budget authority for certain accounts or activities that is different than the funding rate provided for the remainder of activities in the CR.”

Andrew “Art” Arthur, Resident Fellow in Law and Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote in a September 8 article for the Center:

“I was the acting chief of the former INS’s national security law division, and the staff director for the National Security Subcommittee at the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, so I know a few things about vetting aliens. It is an “exclusionary” system — it does not identify the “good guys”; at best, it can only hope to identify some of the bad ones.

“If you read the final report of the 9/11 Commission, you will see that vetting failures and a lack of intelligence sharing among U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement agencies were largely to blame for the fact that the 19 hijackers (all of whom were foreign nationals on various nonimmigrant visas) were in the United States to begin with.

“In the case of the Afghans being resettled in the United States who have minimal documentation and few if any ties to the U.S. government, that should be a red flag. The Biden CR compounds that.”

Arthur said there is a second red flag included in the resolution. There is a provision that allows the Department of Homeland Security to run a second background check on any Afghan citizen that receives the benefit:

“If the first background check were so good at spotting the bad guys, why would you need to run a second, third, or fourth one after you gave them cash and driver’s licenses?

To ask the question is to answer it: The Biden administration knows that its vetting of most Afghan refugees will be questionable, at best. But it gets worse.

That’s because one year after those aliens arrive here (not one year after the first background check is completed and they are given this special status), they would be eligible to apply for green cards.”

Arthur pointed out that under the proposal would allow the secretary of DHS to waive any requirement for “humanitarian purposes.” The message being sent to terrorists in Afghanistan is clear, according to Arthur:

“What message does that send to would-be terrorists in Afghanistan, or anywhere else for that matter? That you could have planted an IED, or blown up a school for girls, and if you make it to the United States, Alejandro Mayorkas is going to take you in his arms, tousle your hair, and say, “Come here you scamp, I am going to put you on a path to citizenship to make sure you and Mom aren’t separated?”

“Of course, if the secretary is not so forgiving, does that mean that some activist district court judge somewhere is not going to disagree?”

In conclusion, Arthur calls the Biden administration’s plan “madness”:

“The Afghan proposals in Biden’s CR are madness, given the fact that they provide a pathway to a green card, and soon thereafter citizenship, for Afghan nationals some of whom who are — past, present, or future — terrorists…

“… not to mention those who are child sex offenders or murderers. And, four days before the 20th anniversary of September 11th? The timing could not have been worse.”

Terror threat: DHS whistleblower says officials rewarded for approving unqualified immigration visas

August 29, 2021

 

WASHINGTON, DC – Project Veritas has released a video interview with a Homeland Security whistleblower who claimed immigration officials are being incentivized to approve immigrant visas when the applicants are not qualified.

The whistleblower said during the interview that there was a culture war blazing between employees who believe in national sovereignty and those that want to see open borders.

The whistleblower, described by Project Veritas as a Homeland Security insider, said:

“There is a cultural war going on between the conservatives and the people who like open borders, and it’s been going on for years. The conservatives are losing.”

The source said that federal officials are being encouraged to approve as many visas as possible, regardless of validity:

“When they (visa renewal applicants) ask for an extension under the deference policy, we’re supposed to accept the fact that the first approval was valid, and therefore, we just approve it. It’s numerically centric. They (DHS) want us to approve as many (applicants) as possible.”

The whistleblower said that Homeland Security was paying bonuses to immigration officers at the end of the year based on the number of files they have processed:

“It’s a bad thing because it incentivizes approvals. If they denied 90 percent, there would be a far less amount of cases processed because it takes so much longer. If you approve a bunch of cases, then you are going to obtain a higher bonus because the processing numbers are higher.”

He also said that immigrants are being prioritized over American citizens for getting jobs:

“If you are getting a bonus because you’re approving of someone coming into the country and working — which could potentially be an American job — I think that is unforgivable.

“We’re supposed to be there (at the DHS) to protect national security, and we’re supposed to be there to protect American jobs.”

Asked if he or any of his co-workers are afraid of retaliation from DHS leadership for opposing the push-through of visas, the whistleblower said that it does happen, but he is not afraid:

“They’ll retaliate against you by virtue of your performance, and what it does is that you’re not entitled to overtime. Not entitled to telework. Not entitled to a lateral transfer. Not entitled to a promotion.”

“I expect retaliation, I’m not afraid of it. I’m doing the right thing.”

Project Veritas was founded by James O’Keefe in 2010 to expose corruption and bias in government and the mainstream media. Its website reads:

“James O’Keefe established Project Veritas in 2011 as a non-profit journalism enterprise to continue his undercover reporting work.

“Today, Project Veritas investigates and exposes corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.”

The outlet reported on another whistleblower from DHS on August 24 who described a “government loophole” that was allowing migrant gang members to get away with child sex trafficking and other crimes:

“Once an (illegal immigrant) informs the U.S. government that they have some type of fear, or that their life is in jeopardy, or they’ll be persecuted, or they may be tortured, they are put in what’s called the ‘reasonable fear (category).’”

“Once ( migrant gang member) makes the declaration of, ‘My life is in danger and I may be harmed if I return home,’ they’re taken off the (Transnational Organized Crime) watchlist. That makes it a giant loophole.”

He explained that these gang members, many associated with MS-13, know what to say when they are captured crossing the border:

“Some of these [migrant gang members] are encountered by Border Patrol and they’re asked right away, ‘Do you fear for your life if you are deported?’ They’ll say no, and then the next day they’ll say yes.”

“It’s almost like they are coached, ‘Hey if you get caught, just go ahead and say this.’”
