Biden emphasizes that Afghan refugees will be vetted before entering US

President Biden emphasized on Sunday that refugees who are being evacuated from Afghanistan will be thoroughly vetted before they are brought to the United States.

Biden’s comments, which he made during a Sunday afternoon speech from the White House on the evacuation effort, came as some conservative lawmakers and commentators have tried to stoke nativist concerns about welcoming Afghan refugees into the U.S.

“Planes taking off from Kabul are not flying directly to the United States. They’re landing at U.S. military bases and transit centers around the world,” Biden said. “At these sites where they are landing, we are conducting thorough … security screening for everyone who is not a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident. Anyone arriving in the United States will have undergone a background check.”

And if you believe that one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!
