Biden Admin Admits Pedophiles Evacuated from Afghanistan with Child 'Brides'
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken admits to Senate that children transported with rapists
Democrat Joe Biden's administration has admitted that dozens of pedophiles have been evacuated from Afghanistan by the United States and were transported along with their child victims.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken testified before the Senate about the Biden admin's botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.
During his testimony, he was forced to admit that young children were transported from Afghanistan with adult men who identified the kids as their "wives."
During the hearing, Sen. Ted Cruz asked Blinken about the numbers of child "brides," citing data from the World Health Organization (WHO) that over 50 percent of wives in Afghanistan were married as young kids.
Blinken admitted that he did not know the exact number of underage girls who were evacuated with older men.
The secretary also said he didn't know how many child victims were rescued by officials after they landed in America.
Cruz cited reports of a State Department document seeking “urgent guidance” from the Biden regime about the issue after child brides were brought to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin.
Blinken insisted the entire government was following the issue with “extreme vigilance” to uncover and separate child brides of older Afghan men, but he tried to downplay the numbers, according to Breitbart.
“To my knowledge, a limited number of cases where we have separated people because we were concerned…” Blinken began.
“How many?” Cruz interrupted.
“The cases I’m aware of? A handful,” Blinken replied.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is also investigating reports of child brides, according to Yahoo News.
"The concern is, we’re seeing a lot of family units with very young girls,” a government official said to Yahoo News.
"These girls are brought into the U.S. as wives.
"It’s not a small number.”
