2 Afghan refugees, who were brought to the U.S. during the disasterous Afghan withdrawl instead of saving American lives, were indicted on by a federal grand jury in Wisconsin on assault and sexual assault charges.
While at Ft. McCoy, an Army base that is located 100 miles northwest of Madison, Wisconsin, the two Afghan refugees are alleged to have committed the horrendous crimes. Bahrulla Noori, 20, is charged with one count of attempting to engage in a sex act with a minor by force and three counts of engaging in a sex act with a minor. Noori is accused of sexually assaulting one juvenile who was 12 to 15 years of age, and three other instances of fondling the genitals of another juvenile, also 12 to 15 years old.
The second indictment charges are against Mohammad Haroon Imaad. He’s accused of assaulting his wife on September 7 by strangling and suffocating her.
A complaint made by Imaad’s wife states that he also hit their children on “multiple occasions” and “beat me many times in Afghanistan to the point I lost vision in both eyes.” During a subsequent interview, she stated her husband had raped her in addition to abusing her verbally and physically. At one point, she claimed, he had threatened to “send her back to Afghanistan where the Taliban could deal with her” and also told her “that nine women have been killed since getting to Fort McCoy and that she would be the tenth.”
The 2 men are among 13,000 Afghan refugees who were taken to Fort McCoy after being airlifted out of Afghanistan. Both Noori and Imaad were supposedly vetted before reaching Fort McCoy.
If convicted, Noori faces a minimum of 30 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison for the use of force charge alone, with a maximum of 15 years on the other charges. Imaad faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Both men are being held at Dane County Jail.
These two come not long after the New York Post reported that there were growing fears of child brides being brought to the United States during the evacuation out of Afghanistan.
It’s being reported that US officials are investigating reports that elderly Afghan men were allowed to evacuate the war-torn country with very young girls they claimed as “wives”. Some of those child brides were taken to Ft. McCoy where the sexual assaults occurred.
One internal document, document, “Afghanistan Task Force SitRep No. 63,” seen by The Associated Press says the State Department has sought “urgent guidance” from other agencies after purported child brides were brought to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin. Another document, described to the AP by officials familiar with it, says Afghan girls at a transit site in Abu Dhabi have alleged they have been raped by older men they were forced to marry in order to escape Afghanistan.
“Intake staff at Fort McCoy reported multiple cases of minor females who presented as ‘married’ to adult Afghan men, as well as polygamous families,” the document says. “Department of State has requested urgent guidance.”
Child marriages are not uncommon in Afghanistan, but here in the United States, we have some strict laws regarding underage marriages and human trafficking.
We don’t look highly at old men who decide to take children as their “wives” to rape and beat for their entire lives.
This administration left countless Americans stranded in the terrorist strong-hold while allowing 13 of our service members die, yet we have to worry about the refugees they brought here raping children and beating women. Enough is enough. The installed administration needs to hear our voices as we tell them enough.
