Two Afghan refugees staying at Fort McCoy military base in Wisconsin, face charges of domestic abuse and sex crimes against a minor. The Department of Justice (DOJ) released a statement regarding the two Afghan offenders after a grand jury returned indictments against the refugees.
According to the DOJ, the first Afghan, 20-year-old Bahrullah Noori, is “charged with attempting to engage in a sexual act with a minor using force against that person, and with three counts of engaging in a sexual act with a minor, with one count alleging the use of force.”
The second at Fort McCoy was 32-year-old Mohammad Haroon Imaad, who was charged with domestic abuse after “assaulting his spouse by strangling and suffocating her.” After the indictments, Noori and Imaad were moved from the military case to Dane County Jail.
Earlier this month, the first wave of nearly 40,000 refugees fleeing the Taliban arrived in America. Afghans are being processed and housed in Idaho, Wisconsin, Montana, and Washington, where they will be processed before being resettled in other states.
In a statement, the US Department of Defense announced its making arrangements to house up to 50,000 Afghan refugees across seven military bases, including Fort Bliss, Texas; Fort McCoy, Wisconsin; Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey; Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico; and Fort Lee, Marine Corps Base Quantico and Fort Pickett, all in Virginia.
After the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, thousands of citizens struggled to catch planes out of the terrorist-controlled country. The Biden administration’s resettlement plan will provide permanent residency to the refugees. It is unclear how many refugees are being taken in by other countries, although Albania and France have expressed support. Like Noori and Imaad, other Afghan refugees have been identified as criminals.
