General Mick McGuire (retired) reacted on Thursday when the Biden administration allegedly allowed former Taliban workers to enter the United States, saying it showed “the hypocrisy of the left.”
“My reaction to this policy is that from 1996 to 2001 every American remembers what happened on September 11, 2001,” the Republican candidate for the Arizona Senate told “Fox & Friends.”
“And I can’t believe the hypocrisy of the Left, now to say that those people who helped shelter and advance the terrorists who attacked this nation on September 11 and killed these great New Yorkers and the people of DC and the folks on Flight 93 are going to be off a terrorism watch list when we have citizens in this country on that list? ”He added.
BIDEN PLANS TO ALLOW CERTAIN AFGHAN OFFICIALS EMPLOYED BY THE TALIBAN TO EXAMINE TERROR PROHIBITIONS
The Biden administration plans to allow certain Afghan officials employed by the Taliban government from 1996-2001 to be exempted from terrorism-related bans from entering the United States, according to a draft document obtained by Fox News. The administration continues to bring in tens of thousands of Afghans as part of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) draft planning document, reviewed by Fox News, describes how the Department of Homeland Security plans to issue a memorandum to enable Afghan officials who worked under the Taliban regime to be exempt from terrorism-related inadmissibility. grounds (TRIG) if they meet other background and selection requirements.
TRIG places limits on individuals who are members of a terrorist organization or who have engaged in terrorism, making them ineligible in the United States and ineligible for immigration benefits. The USCIS website states that the definition of terrorism-related activity “is relatively broad and can apply to individuals and activities that are not generally considered to be associated with terrorism.” This means that TRIG would likely exclude those who worked under the Taliban, which ruled from 1996 until it was ousted by the United States in 2001 due to Al Qaeda’s hosting after the 9/11 attacks.
“Many people who worked in the civil service before the declaration of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in 1996 continued to do so after the declaration,” the document says in support of the candidacy. “Some did it under duress or in other difficult situations.”
“Some have used their positions in humanitarian capacities to mitigate the repressive actions of the Taliban regime, often at the risk of their lives. Some of these officials then worked for or assisted the International Security Assistance Force, the United States government or the Afghan government which was put in place on December 22, 2001 “, he adds.
