I will go out on a limb and opine that the approval of bringing in child brides into our country by our State Department is probably the result of the Muslim infiltration into our government. How else to explain the actions? Read the full AP story.
So now we have judges ruling FGM ban unconstitutional and our government approving child abuse. So much for our Judeo-Christian values.
Federal Ban on Female Genital Mutilation Ruled Unconstitutional
Nov 21, 2018 – A federal judge in Michigan has dropped most of the charges against a Detroit doctor accused of female genital mutilation, concluding that Congress “overstepped its bounds” when it passed a law banning the practice. That 1996 law violates the Constitution and is unenforceable.
As a result, he dropped six federal charges against Jumana Nagarwala, who was accused of mutilating the genitals of multiple girls when they were about 7. Other defendants charged with assisting in the procedures have also had charges dropped.
The State Department has approved thousands of requests made by older men to bring child or adolescent brides to the country in the past decade, according to an Associated Press report published Friday and based on government data.
In nearly all the cases, the girls were the younger person in the relationship. In 149 instances, the adult was older than 40, and in 28 cases the adult was over 50, the committee found. In 2011, immigration officials approved a 14-year-old’s petition for a 48-year-old spouse in Jamaica. A petition from a 71-year-old man was approved in 2013 for his 17-year-old wife in Guatemala.
The State Department approved 5,556 requests made from adults who were looking to bring minor spouses or fiancées to the United States and 2,926 requests made by minors that were seeking to have older spouses brought in. The agency also reportedly approved 204 requests made by minors seeking to bring in spouses who were also minors.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the first step for consideration of petitions for spouses or fiancées.
Data gathered by the news agency revealed that in the majority of cases, girls were the youngest in the relationship. In nearly 150 cases, the man seeking to bring minor spouses or fiancées to the U.S. was over the age of 40.
