Large numbers of male Afghan pedophiles are pouring into the United States with sexually abused children who they are presenting as their “wives.”
According to U.S. State Department officials, an investigation is underway after large numbers of male Afghans were detected successfully sneaking child victims into the country.
Numerous incidents have been identified by U.S. officials at intake centers in the United Arab Emirates and in Wisconsin in which Afghan children, all of whom appear to have been violently raped, are being presented to authorities as the “wives” of pedophile men.

One internal document seen by The Associated Press says the State Department has sought “urgent guidance” from other agencies after child brides were snuck into Fort McCoy in Wisconsin.
Dailymail.co.uk reports: Another document, described to the AP by officials familiar with it, says Afghan girls at a transit site in Abu Dhabi have alleged they have been raped by older men they were forced to marry in order to escape Afghanistan.
The State Department had no immediate comment on the documents or the veracity of the details in them.
Officials say that they take all such allegations seriously but that many of them are anecdotal and difficult to prove, particularly amid the crush of Afghan evacuees at multiple locations in the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
An Aug. 27 situation report sent to all U.S. embassies and consulates abroad as well as military command centers in Florida points to potential issues involving young girls and older men, some of whom claim to have more than one wife at Fort McCoy, a sprawling 60,000-acre Army base in Wisconsin.
Relevant portions of the document, titled ‘Afghanistan Task Force SitRep No. 63,’ were obtained by the AP.
‘Intake staff at Fort McCoy reported multiple cases of minor females who presented as `married´ to adult Afghan men, as well as polygamous families,’ the document says. ‘Department of State has requested urgent guidance.’
There was no immediate indication from the military or from the departments of homeland security and health and human services, which run the facility, that such guidance had been received.
At the same time, U.S. officials in the United Arab Emirates have expressed similar concerns, sending a diplomatic cable to Washington warning that some young Afghan girls had been forced into marriages in order to escape Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover.
Officials familiar with the cable say it describes allegations by several girls at the Humanitarian City in Abu Dhabi that they had been sexually assaulted by their ‘husbands’ and seeks guidance on how to handle such cases.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal communications.
