DOJ: Two Afghan Refugees Facing Federal Charges for Sexual Acts with Minor, Assaulting Spouse

Repercussions of the Biden administration’s abhorrent lack of planning and vetting before allowing migrants into the United States, whether it be from the southern border or Afghanistan, are rolling in like a treacherous avalanche.

The Department of Justice released a statement on two horrifying incidents involving Afghan refugees who were brought to the United States after President Biden’s failed troop withdrawal.

“Bahrullah Noori, 20, is charged with attempting to engage in a sexual act with a minor using force against that person, and with three counts of engaging in a sexual act with a minor, with one count alleging the use of force,” said the statement.

“The indictment alleges that that the victims had not attained the age of 16 years and were at least four years younger than the defendant.” The statement goes on to discuss the second attacker, but said that the two cases were not related to each other.

“Mohammad Haroon Imaad, 32, is charged with assaulting his spouse by strangling and suffocating her,” The statement continued. “The indictment alleges that the assault occurred on September 7, 2021.”

The DOJ added:

Noori and Imaad were charged previously in complaints filed in U.S. District Court.  They made initial appearances in Madison on September 16 and are being detained at the Dane County Jail.  Noori and Imaad are scheduled for arraignment tomorrow, September 23, at 9:30 a.m. and 10:15 a.m., respectively, before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen L. Crocker. 

 If convicted, Noori faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 30 years and a maximum of life in federal prison on the charges alleging use of force, and a maximum penalty of 15 years on the other two charges.  Imaad faces a maximum penalty of 10 years.  The charges against them are the result of investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort McCoy Police Department. 

As the Daily Wire reports, “the Biden administration has repeatedly claimed that it is vetting the Afghan refugees that it is bringing into the country, even after the administration left behind thousands of SIV applicants and an untold number of Americans thought to be over 100.”

However, the New York Times has reported on the inability for vetting to accurately and properly occur. “Refugees pushed their way onto airplanes. Hundreds of children were separated from their parents. Rogue flights landed without manifests. Security vetting of refugees was done in hours or days, rather than months or years. …”

The Times continued:

American officials have said the refugees are being thoroughly vetted, with the authorities feeding fingerprints, portraits and biographical information into federal databases to weed out potential risks. Mr. Mayorkas said the Defense Department had sent hundreds of biometric screening machines to 30 countries. …

 But unclassified briefing documents titled “2021 Afghanistan Repatriation Mission” reveal that in some cases, spotty information is being collected: Flight manifests have been at times incomplete or missing, visa or citizenship status is unknown, and there is a lack of basic demographic data.
