Biden Ignores Republican Senators’ Questions On ‘Vetting’ of Afghan Refugees

More than two dozen Republican Senators gave President Joe Biden a deadline to give them answers about the withdrawal from Afghanistan, but that deadline has passed.

Twenty-six Republican Senators sent a letter requesting information on how many Americans may have been left behind in Afghanistan, as well as information on what the vetting process was for the more than 100,000 Afghan refugees being brought to the U.S.

The deadline was 5 p.m. EST Tuesday.

“You say that more than 123,000 individuals have been evacuated from Afghanistan in recent weeks (nearly half of whom were evacuated by groups or countries other than the United States), but only an estimated 5,500 self-identified American citizens (4.5% of the total evacuees) were evacuated or left on their own,” the letter reads.

“Further, while it does not appear that you have released exact numbers of our Afghan partners who were evacuated, your administration has publicly confirmed that fewer than 50% of evacuated Afghans were Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants or their families.”

President Joe Biden is facing criticism for his handling of the U.S.’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, which left 13 U.S. service members and hundreds of civilians dead and billions of dollars in military equipment in the hands of the Taliban.

The lack of cooperation between the White House and Republicans on Capitol Hill is significant.

“The signatories of this letter may have differing opinions about whether the United States should have maintained a military presence in Afghanistan, but we all agree that the arbitrary and poorly-planned method by which you withdrew from Afghanistan caused this crisis,” the letters reads, which was signed by 26 Senators.

“We request thorough, unclassified answers to these questions that can be made available to the general public. Americans need to see that the United States will not abandon them to terrorists abroad forever.”
