White House estimates up to 95,000 Afghans will be resettled in U.S.

The Biden administration has yet to present to Congress a report detailing the number of Afghan refugees in the United States and on overseas military bases—in violation of a law that required those disclosures by Dec. 1.

A provision in a government funding bill passed Sept. 30 required Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas to produce a detailed accounting of Afghan refugees both in the United States and abroad to Congress within 60 days. The Washington Free Beacon has learned that Congress has yet to receive any report from DHS.

The violation of a congressionally mandated deadline comes as more than 124,000 people were airlifted out of Afghanistan by Aug. 30, the last day of the United States' presence in the country. Of those, the White House says it anticipates up to 95,000 Afghans will be resettled in the United States. Many of the Afghans who arrived in the United States this fall lacked identification paperwork, raising terrorism and public safety concerns. The Free Beacon reported in September that Afghan refugees who arrived in the United States did not receive COVID-19 tests before departing Kabul.

Senate Republicans, such as James Lankford (Okla.), criticized the Biden administration's lack of compliance with the law at a time when Democrats are asking for $7 billion in additional funding for Afghanistan resettlement efforts.
