“Joe Biden has imported a human rights catastrophe into America,” writes Ted Cruz this afternoon. And what is he referring to? An outrageous position that the Decrepit in Chief put our country in. He’s made us child traffickers.
An exaggeration? Nope. From the AP: “U.S. officials are looking into reports that in the frantic evacuation of desperate Afghans from Kabul, older men were admitted together with young girls they claimed as “brides” or otherwise sexually abused.”
Unbelievable. It’s not just a rumor, as the story goes on to explain, and it’s not theoretical that the correct phrase is “child trafficking.” That’s U.S. law.
U.S. officials at intake centers in the United Arab Emirates and in Wisconsin have identified numerous incidents in which Afghan girls have been presented to authorities as the “wives” of much older men. While child marriage is not uncommon in Afghanistan, the U.S. has strict policies against human trafficking that include prosecutions for offenders and sanctions for countries that don’t crack down on it.
That’s why Sen. Cruz says this:
Horrifying. Joe Biden has imported a human rights catastrophe into America. How is this not literally child trafficking, conducted by the United States government? https://t.co/OT5gzUOwDR

It’s not theoretical. Because Biden is a Democrat the press acts like this is just some interesting bit of technical information, not an outrage. And they won’t call it what it is because they CAN’T. They’ve made their bed a thousand times when it comes to refugees.
It wasn’t enough for Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats like Mark Milley to cause disaster and abuse in Afghanistan. No. They have to bring it here. That’s their philosophy isn’t it? Spread it around?
