Judge Says Trump Admin Not Moving Fast Enough Bringing in Iraqi and Afghan Special Visa Holders

SIVs are nationals of Iraq and Afghanistan who supposedly helped us during our long involvement in the Middle East.  They are most often referred to as “interpreters” but they could have done any menial job connected to our military or connected to non-profit groups operating in those countries and be eligible to come here and be given the same benefits as refugees—which means of course virtually all social services.

And, you are expected to believe that all SIVs we admit are just the salt of the earth like “Steve-O” here who was convicted of a brutal rape in CO in 2014. Real name is Jasim Ramadon and he was even a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show!  That is, before the rape that sent him to prison. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2014/01/24/iraqi-refugee-rapist-found-guilty-in-colorado-diana-west-reports-the-story-nationally/

So the US goes to war in some hellhole country and then, admitting we didn’t leave them a better government and a safer country, Americans are expected to reach out and welcome tens of thousands of their people to the US so that the next time we go to war, the military can offer a ticket to America in exchange for our largely unwilling presence in their hellhole country.

Sorry, I do respect our military, but this is going too far.

Since October of 2006, and as of a week ago, we have admitted 64,501 Afghan SIVs and another 18,677 Iraqi SIVs and so we are being told that over 83,000 is NOT ENOUGH!

Want to see the numbers for yourself go to the Refugee Processing Center:

Cumulative Arrivals by State for Refugees and SIV Reception and Placement (R&P) Recipients – Afghan

Cumulative Arrivals by State for Refugees and SIV Reception and Placement (R&P) Recipients – Iraqi


83,000 is NOT enough says the International Refugee Assistance Project the same ‘non-profit’ law firm that has fought the Trump Administration in court on every immigration/refugee reform issue the administration has undertaken.

From the Military Times (a report that leaves readers believing that only a trickle have come in so far):

Former interpreters laud court ruling to accelerate special visa decisions

For thousands of Afghan and Iraqi nationals who served as interpreters with the U.S. military, visa applications to gain permanent legal residence in the United States have languished in legal limbo for years. Now there may be help on the way, in the form of a court ruling.


This week, however, a judge granted “class certification” to Afghan and Iraqi nationals suing the federal government for overdue visa decisions, allowing thousands of outstanding cases to be included in a class-action lawsuit.


US District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan,

Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, district judge for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, ruled in favor of the five anonymous Afghan and Iraqi nationals, “who, despite significant personal risk, aided the United States in its time of need and now look to the United States for refuge for themselves and their immediate family members.”

The federal government now has 30 days to submit a plan to adjudicate long-delayed visa applications that have been pending for more than nine months.

“We are thrilled that the judge is holding the government accountable to its obligations to the thousands of men and women who have sacrificed so much in serving the U.S. missions abroad,” said Deepa Alagesan, a supervising attorney at the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), in a press release.


Currently, a total of 22,500 visas could be issued to former Afghan interpreters through the Special Immigrant Visa program — up from the 18,500 limit — after a provision was included in the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act.

There is much more here.

Never forget! The SIV programs for Iraq and Afghanistan were created as riders to must-pass Defense authorization and appropriation bills and thus never went through the committee process to be stand-alone bills sent to the President for his signature.  Snuck on when hardly anyone was looking!

And, if you are wondering about vetting for the SIVs, here is another bunch (besides the CO rapist gang) who clearly slipped through and were busted for running an international fencing ring in California late last year.  There are probably plenty more like that they just haven’t come to my attention yet!

Mark my words, the SIV program is a ticking time bomb!

    1. To sTurandot… thanks for the link which I’m posting. These Refugees SVI are a slap in the face to Americans. Thanks again for the link info.

  1. I would rather have them take time to vet them and keep our country safe then let in some crazies who want to do harm to the people of the United States. I bet that was an Obama judge saying that.

  2. Yeah, like the Al-Qaeda terrorist leader who was granted refugee status in Phoenix, Arizona after killing American and Iraqi military personnel in Fallujah? The same one who was granted refugee status in America along with social security disability, a $250,000 home in Surprise, Arizona; a government contractor; and also ran a driving school in Phoenix? TRAITORS are running immigration. The courts are traitors. The State Dept are traitors. He MURDERED American military personnel; brothers, sisters, mothers, daughters, fathers, uncles, and aunts. He murdered innocent men, women and children in Iraq. SEND HIM BACK TO IRAQ. VET ALL REFUGEES and IMMIGRANTS.

  3. Plain an Simple, even for a Judge….She basically ordering the President to disregard the CONSTITUTION!
    And follow her orders!
    The Constitution Gives the President sole! SOLE control of Foreign Affairs and immigration.
    Judge needs to go back to school..she must have been absent the one day they taught Constitutional law.
    Or Transfer her back to Night Court…. Harry could use some help with keeping Dan Straight!

  4. The ones on “0” watch brought in all muslims and excluding Christians, he left them to be slaughtered of course the women were raped and sold with the men all murdered.

    If Trump has his hand forced make sure they are only Christians and “0” muslims

  5. I am sure this judge is aware that our allies in Afghanistan are largely child-molesters who practice “Bachi-Baz” . I would have only those that our troops and commanders can personally vouch for come here. The rest can stay in their own country.

  6. Notice all of these pro-progressive rulings are made by Obama appointed judges? Why have a law when these judges don’t even pay attention to it? This is a Presidential discretionary call – the judge has no business overruling it.
