According to a document draft from the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) obtained by Fox News, the Biden administration is striving to allow former civil servants of Afghanistan (who served under the first government of the Taliban) to enter the United States.
Biden to Welcome Former Partners of the Taliban into the US
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has gone bonkers, as it is all set to issue a memorandum to give the former Taliban’s partners an exemption from terrorism-related inadmissibility grounds (TRIG).
After doing background checks, the government will allow them to come into the United States, despite the fact the deadly 9/11 attacks happened under the same Afghanistan government.
TRIG rules out the possibility of terrorists coming into the United States through formal channels. The entry of individuals related to any terrorist organization (or having a background in any such activity) is banned under this act. Likewise, the measure restricts any of these sorts of individuals from enjoying immigration benefits as well.

The draft document is giving testimony in favor of the former civil servants for the sake of bringing them to America. It’s saying some of them acted against Taliban interests to strangle their brutal regime.
Similarly, the draft evinces those people put their lives at risk to go against the Taliban government when the extremist group seized power back in 1996.
The document declared some of these civil servants continued giving assistance to the civil government after the Taliban government was overthrown in 2001. As per the upcoming orders, these civil servants also assisted the International Security Assistance Force in conducting their anti-Taliban operations.
Efforts to Bring Taliban’s Partners into the US Started During the Biden Administration
One of the administration’s officials told Fox News such exemptions have already been made in the past in the case of the former Soviet Union and Cuba.
He emphasized the purpose of such a memorandum is not to bar those who served in various professions under the Taliban government from entering the US again. The DHS has religiously defended its screening protocols and remains overconfident that no one can breach them.
Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Matt Rosendale introduced an act in the House that would seek more congressional control over refugee admission into the United States.

The efforts to bring these civil servants over started during the last days of the Obama administration; however, during Donald Trump’s era, these efforts did not materialize, as the TRIG exemption list was never published.
It is essential to note here that General Mark Milley and other top military leaders already warned in their recent congressional hearing that the presence of terrorist organizations in Afghanistan is still a reality.
The military leadership also added the US could see another major terrorist attack from these organizations in the next 12 to 36 months. Given the testimonies of the top military leaders, giving grounds to the former civil servants of the Taliban regime is a foolish approach.
