Two Afghan refugees recently brought to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin have been charged with heinous crimes, including sexual abuse of a minor while at a military base.
In the first case, Bahrullah Nouri faces three charges of attempting to have sex with a minor, using force in one case. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the victims – plural – are all under the age of 16.
In the second case, Mohammad Harun Imad was accused of suffocating his wife.
The two refugees are being held in a Den County jail.
In Fort McCoy, Afghan refugees face federal charges of abuse of minors and spouses.

The results of the FBI and Fort McCoy police investigation are both Nuri and Imad’s allegations. If convicted, Nouri could face up to 30 years in prison and Imad could face up to 10 years in prison.
Both were part of the Biden administration’s massive evacuation of more than 12,000 refugees after the Afghan government collapsed last month and U.S. troops withdrew from Afghanistan.

Psaki says everyone is being vetted
While Afghan refugees are being resettled in about 150 different communities across the country, White House Press Secretary Jane Saki has claimed that “no one” is coming to the country without proper scrutiny, especially in the wake of terrorist concerns.
“I can fully assure you that no one is coming to the United States who has not gone through the full screening and background check process,” Psaki said.
“There are a lot of people, as you mentioned, who didn’t go through this process. And they moved to the Lillipad country because that process was done. This does not mean that there is a flag. That means they haven’t finished their paperwork. And we were working to save thousands of people. So we moved them to this third country. ”
However, correspondent Tom Tiffany (R-WI) tells a different story. He said that during a recent visit to the base, he said there was not enough security and that none of the refugees he came in contact with had special immigration visas. Typically, the screening process for such visas can take up to two years.
“They were all on parole,” Tiffany said. The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security is granted parole authority. He can only put people inside. Tiffany added that she believes the Biden administration is “disrupting the SIV process.”

A clear warning
Last week, in an article in RealClearPolitics, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) sounded an alarm similar. During a visit to Fort Bliss, Cruz asked the Commanding General how we were making sure the refugees were properly examined. General Cruz was told it was being done in Afghanistan.
According to Sen. Cruz, screening is inadequate, or refugee admission is not done until the plane enters the United States.
