Afghan Refugee at Quantico Commits ‘Unlawful Act With a Child’

Another alleged refugee from Afghanistan has committed a crime since being brought over to America, while living at a Marine Corps base, with this incident involving a child.

As the Daily Caller reports, the incident occurred last year at the Marine Corps Base Quantico, located in Virginia, and was only recently revealed in an Inspector General report. The report states that there was a “major criminal security incident” involving a refugee, one of thousands who was imported into the United States after the fall of Afghanistan last August.

It was confirmed that the crime “appeared to be an unlawful act with a minor,” although the report did not divulge the nature of the crime itself. Following an internal investigation, the culprit was handed over to the FBI.

There was a total of 3,755 refugees living at Quantico at the peak of the refugee crisis, with similar numbers at seven other military bases around the country. Quantico’s housing efforts alone cost a total of about $188 million for the Marine Corps and the Department of Defense. In total, there were over 67,000 refugees living on American military bases, with $13.3 billion spent on resettlement efforts thus far.

There have been numerous past instances of crimes, particularly sex crimes, being committed by Afghan refugees. Due to a lack of secure vetting, rapists and other sex offenders who had previously been deported were allowed back into the country amidst the evacuation of refugees following the fall of Kabul on August 15th. Two refugees at Fort McCoy in Wisconsin were charged with federal crimes for sexual acts with a minor and domestic abuse, respectively. In addition to sex crimes, there was a widespread pattern of refugees committing domestic abuse crimes against female refugees, forcing some bases to segregate the refugees based on gender.
