Human trafficking of young Afghan girls under Biden administration alleged
A report has claimed that the Joe Biden administration could be guilty in allowing human trafficking of “child brides” from Afghanistan to the United States.
The Associated Press has reported that there have been several instances where old Afghan men have presented young Afghan girls as the “child bride” to the United States authorities.
According to one internal document, seen by the AP, Afghan girls at a transit site in Abu Dhabi have claimed that they were forced to marry older men to escape Afghanistan who in turn raped them.
“Intake staff at Fort McCoy (Wisconsin) reported multiple cases of minor females who presented as ‘married’ to adult Afghan men, as well as polygamous families. Department of State has requested urgent guidance,” says the document seen by AP.
As per the report, the State Department has refused to confirm the veracity of the internal documents and their content. Officials, however, spoke under the condition of anonymity who said that numerous girls have been sexually assaulted by the older men who are their “husbands” and have sough appropriate guidance on how to proceed regarding the matter.
Accusing the Joe Biden administration of importing an “acute human rights crisis” into the USA, Senator Ted Cruz said, “There have been multiple cases of child brides and polygamous families from Afghanistan arriving at military bases here in America as part of their botched evacuation.”
Ted Cruz also said, “How is this not literally child trafficking, conducted by the United States government?” Former Trump advisor Steve Cortes said that the US had imported “elderly Afghan creeps and their child brides”.
