The Taliban Just Issued This New Warning About Fake Refugees
Need more evidence? ISIS sees the efficacy of the strategy, as a report released by Homeland Security Investigations stated, “ISIS likely has been able to print legitimate-looking Syrian passports since taking over the city of Deir ez-Zour last summer, home to a passport office with “boxes of blank passports” and a passport printing machine.”
Fake passports turns out to be just one issue we face in screening refugees – fake paperwork is another. And we’re being warned of this by the Taliban, of all sources.
As the Daily Caller reported:
The Taliban in Afghanistan claims that refugees are using fake death threat letters to gain entry to Western countries, according to an official statement.
Speaking under the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban’s de-facto state in Afghanistan, the Taliban warns Western countries that refugees are falsifying documents in an attempt to seek asylum. Many Western countries, particularly those in the EU and U.S., have laws which provide asylum for refugees. Being able to show that they could face death if sent home may aid in a refugee’s chance of receiving asylum.
