Ken Cuccinelli: The Biden administration’s handling of Afghan refugees poses a security threat to the United States

KEN CUCCINELLI: “YES WE ARE A COUNTRY OF IMMIGRANTS, BUT THAT PRESUMES THAT WE’RE A MELTING POT. IF YOU REFUSE TO MELT IN… THEN YOU SHOULDN’T BE IMMIGRATING HERE”

Former Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security says Biden refugee policy “not a workable situation from a security vetting standpoint”

Washington, DC / September 16, 2021 – In an exclusive interview with David Brody on the rapidly growing Real America’s Voice network, Ken Cuccinelli, former Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and Senior Fellow at the Center for Renewing America, said that the Biden administration’s handling of Afghan refugees poses a security threat to the United States. 

“With respect to the Afghans the raw numbers are overwhelming for the vetting process,” Cuccinelli said. “Ninety percent that the Biden administration is bringing over we know nothing about, or very little,” Cuccinelli explained. “We may get a little something from their documents, but now we’re relying on getting information from the Taliban as the host government,” he continued. 

“This is not a workable situation from a security vetting standpoint, and this is a population that starts out fairly radical on the Jihadist scale,” Cuccinelli said, noting that the left-leaning Pew “found that 99 percent of Afghans want to live under sharia law and 61 percent believe that non-Muslims should have to live under sharia law. Almost 40 percent thought that there were some occasions where suicide murder… was acceptable.”

“This is not consistent with our tolerance of other religions in the First Amendment, it is not consistent with our values in this country, and it’s not being vetted for,” Cuccinelli continued

“The typical [vetting] process is about 18 to 24 months, there are 14 steps and that assumes we’re getting the information we need from all the sources,” Cuccinelli explained. “Over the last 15 years… we did about 750 a year, and now we’re going to do 50 or 100,000 people that we don’t have any information on in literally a matter of weeks? It’s not possible,” he said. 

“Once these folks leave the military bases that they’re being housed on… they can go wherever they want,” said Cuccinelli.

“And the Somali experience in Minnesota is not a good one for America. This is not a case of assimilation. This is a case of setting up a balkanized pocket within the United States,” he continued. “And yes, we are a country of immigrants, but that presumes that we’re a melting pot.

If you refuse to melt in, and I would suggest that the data we have on the average Afghan suggests that’s a… strong possibility… then you shouldn’t be immigrating here,” he said. “More accurately America shouldn’t be letting you immigrate here.”
