Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Wants Presidential Pardon For Afghan Who Snuck Across Border Into US

By The Washington Standard


Is There Something About His Background Sheila Jackson Lee Is Not Telling Us?

It’s a human interest story, of sorts, but there are so many strange aspects to it that once the facts are fully known, if they ever are, it may turn out to have been something else altogether. Abdul Wasi Safi, a former soldier in the Afghan army, was caught crossing illegally into the United States from Mexico and is now being held in Texas. Now the far-Left Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Race Resentment) is pushing for Old Joe Biden to give Wasi, as he is known, a presidential pardon. Why was someone who fought for our Afghan allies trying to sneak into the country? And why is Jackson Lee, of all people, who has never shown any particular interest in our troops or their allies, speaking out for him? All that and much more remains unclear.

The more one learns about it, the curiouser this story gets. The Texas Tribune reported Friday that Jackson Lee is “demanding the release of a former Afghan soldier seeking asylum in the U.S. who is being held at a Texas detention center after he attempted to cross the U.S.-Mexico border to reunite with his brother.” Nor does she simply want him to be released: In order to make sure that Abdul Wasi Safi “begins his life in the U.S. without a criminal record,” she “sent a letter to the White House asking the Biden administration to pardon the Afghan veteran for any crimes related to his crossing the border seeking asylum.”
