Pew: 5-in-9 Americans ‘Not Confident’ in Joe Biden’s Vetting of Afghan Arrivals


    The latest Pew Research Center survey shows that 55 percent of American adults — including 83 percent of Republicans and those who lean Republican — do not have confidence in the Biden administration to adequately vet the roughly 95,000 Afghans they are seeking to bring to the U.S. over the next 12 months for resettlement in 46 states.

    About 27 percent of Americans said they are “not too confident” in the federal government’s vetting process for Afghans. Another 28 percent said they are “not at all confident” in the vetting process. Even among registered Democrats, and voters who lean Democrat, more than 3-in-10 said they do not have confidence in the vetting of Afghans.

    Meanwhile, just 12 percent of Americans said they are “very confident” in the vetting of Afghans being brought to the U.S. and 31 percent said they are “somewhat confident.”

    In addition, the Pew Research survey found that the majority of Republicans, 63 percent, oppose Biden’s bringing tens of thousands of Afghans to the U.S. for resettlement — including 65 percent of those who call themselves “conservatives” and 6-in-10 of those who say they are “moderates.”

    Only 35 percent of Republicans say they support resettling Afghans in the U.S.

    This widespread opposition to Biden’s resettlement operation is in contrast to the 18 Republican governors who have voiced their support for resettling in their states. Those GOP governors supporting Afghan resettlement include:

    South Carolina’s Henry McMaster
    Maryland’s Larry Hogan
    Massachusetts’ Charlie Baker
    Utah’s Spencer Cox
    Georgia’s Brian Kemp
    Arkansas’ Asa Hutchinson
    Arizona’s Doug Ducey
    Iowa’s Kim Reynolds
    Oklahoma’s Kevin Stitts
    Vermont’s Phil Scott
    Alabama’s Kay Ivey
    Idaho’s Brad Little
    Indiana’s Eric Holcomb
    Montana’s Greg Gianforte
    Nebraska’s Pete Ricketts
    New Hampshire’s Chris Sununu
    Ohio’s Mike DeWine
    Tennessee’s Bill Lee

    Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) has been one of a handful of elected Republicans in Washington, D.C., sounding the alarm over the Biden administration’s seemingly lax vetting procedures for Afghans.

    “We have zero capacity to vet these folks properly … we’ve got a lot of people that we don’t know anything about,” Rosendale told Breitbart News last week. “We’re starting to see the crimes take place on the military bases … we have zero idea of what kind of security issues they’re bringing with them. We don’t know anything about these folks.”

    Already, the vetting process has failed to keep out two Afghan men now accused of domestic abuse and child sex crimes.

    In details revealed last week, two Afghan men were hit with federal charges for sexual and violent crimes they allegedly committed while living on the Fort McCoy base in Wisconsin. One of the Afghans is accused of strangling and suffocating his wife who he has allegedly abused for years. The other Afghan is accused of molesting 12-year-old and 14-year-old boys and threatening them with violence if they reported the alleged abuse.

    Similarly, Biden has reportedly brought back to the U.S. two Afghan men who were previously convicted of felonies and subsequently deported.

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has sought information about Afghans arriving in the U.S. but has not received any response from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) thus far. Grassley wants to know how many Afghans on the government’s “No Fly List” have sought entry to the U.S., among other vital security details.

    National Public Radio (NPR) reported days ago that Afghans are arriving in the U.S. sometimes with “no paperwork” to prove their identities or with “just scraps of paper.” Likewise, the Associated Press reported that Afghans have been caught lying about their identities or destroying their passports to conceal their true identities.
