Rep. Mark Green Subpoenas Mayorkas, DHS Over Screening Of Afghan Evacuees | Eastern North Carolina Now

    House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) issued a subpoena to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday over documents related to the screening of the tens of thousands of Afghans the Biden administration brought into the U.S. during the August 2021 withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    Green and other House lawmakers have been investigating how the Biden administration screened the more than 76,000 Afghans flown into the U.S. for resettlement as the military left Afghanistan and the Taliban took over. According to Green, Mayorkas has not provided all of the documents requested, including DHS communications on vetting the evacuees, documents which were requested 160 days ago.

    "In the wake of the Biden administration's catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, the country has once again become a breeding ground for foreign terrorist organizations under Taliban rule, and the Committee is still seeking answers on how the Biden administration vetted those entering the United States following the withdrawal," Green's office said in a press release.

    Green's subpoena stipulates that Mayorkas is to appear before the committee on November 7 at the Ford House Office Building in Washington, D.C., at 12:00 p.m.

    "On October 20, 2023, the Department provided a partial production containing limited data on Afghan evacuees. Although the production contained 1,601 pages, it is wholly inadequate. For example, 150 pages were either wholly redacted, devoid of content, or illegible. Further, many of the remaining pages appear to be nothing more than scanned printouts from spreadsheets of data that were provided in a format that rendered them indecipherable," Green wrote in a letter to Mayorkas.

    The lawmakers' investigation into the screening of the evacuees comes after stories that some of the Afghans brought into the U.S. faced charges of attempted rape of a minor and other physical abuse in addition to dozens being flagged for potential terror ties.


    "While the produced documents provide some basic information regarding Afghan evacuees, they fall well short of what was requested by the Committee. For example, the Department failed to produce a single e-mail or other communication from Department employees related to the withdrawal from Afghanistan or Customs and Border Protection's screening, vetting, or inspection of Afghan evacuees at U.S. ports of entry," Green added in his letter.

    Last year, the Inspector General for DHS released a scathing report that said that the agency "may have admitted or paroled individuals into the United States who pose a risk to national security and the safety of local communities."

    At least two Afghan evacuees were shipped out of the U.S. after they were initially let in, while State Department officials have also investigated adult male Afghan evacuees who had child "brides" with them at processing centers in the U.S. and the United Arab Emirates. U.S. military bases that housed the evacuees incurred millions of dollars in damages, making some facilities unusable for U.S. soldiers.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Not sure

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
