That is what Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas has asked the Department of Homeland Security reports John Binder at Breitbart.

You have probably seen the news, but just in case you didn’t know that some of Biden’s Afghans are not waiting for the nine resettlement contractors to pick their new homes in America choosing instead to walk away from military bases where they have been housed.   So much for robust vetting!
