And you thought the Afghanistan debacle couldn’t get worse.
Breitbart is reporting that “Secretary of State Tony Blinken confirmed reports during a Senate hearing on Tuesday that young children were transported from Afghanistan with older men as child brides.”
Not only did the Biden administration hand Afghanistan back to the Taliban, but now, they’re importing the Taliban’s sick values, in the form of child brides and the pedophile men who trafficked them.
Yahoo News reports:
With U.S. officials seeing “many incidents” of older Afghan men fleeing the country with apparently underage wives, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is now looking into ways to spot potential cases of human trafficking among the refugees, according to an internal government document obtained by Yahoo News.
Reports of “child brides” among Afghan refugees were first reported last week by AP and other news outlets, including cases of girls saying they had been raped or sexually abused by older men. State Department officials were seeking “urgent guidance” from other government agencies on how to deal with the issue, AP reported.
A U.S. government official familiar with the reports of alleged child brides said the problem is a result of poor vetting of Afghans.
“The concern is, we’re seeing a lot of family units with very young girls. These girls are brought into the U.S. as wives,” the official said. “It’s not a small number.”
Hmm. Lack of vetting? Isn’t this was conservatives have been complaining about, both for the Afghan evacuation and the southern border of the United States? Apparently Joe Biden and his handlers don’t care enough about child sex trafficking to do anything about it.
Why am I not surprised?
