Dems Helped This Guy Get a Visa, Now He’s Charged with a Crime
Tanveer Hussain and his team manager Abid Khan were initially denied a visa to the United States due to a “lack of ties to their home country of India.” They had hoped to compete in the World Snowshoe Championships in Saranac Lake, New York. But after intervention by high powered Democrats, they got their visas. Now, Hussain is in custody on charges of sexual abuse of a minor.
Sens Chuck Schumer(D-NY), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) both intervened at the behest of Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau to get around whatever was blocking their visa to the US. The area that they are from is the India side of Kashmir, and predominately Muslim.
The two men arrived on February 23 to a “Rock Star’s Welcome” that included an excited village that greeted them with open arms, free lodging, and free meals, according to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. Hussain did compete in the three day Showshoe Championship.
But Monday afternoon, Hussain’s Muslim Culture got him in trouble with US authorities after he allegedly accosted a 12 year old girl who was playing pool at the lodge where he was staying.
The Washington Post reported,
There was a moment when the two were alone, and that’s when the incident occurred,” Potthast said. The girl told police that there was a “passionate kiss” and that Hussain touched her in an intimate area on top of her clothing.
Hussain remains jailed on $10,000 bond. Khan said the athlete told him that he did nothing wrong.
“In Kashmir, we have a tradition of showing love to children. We hug and kiss a child here, and our society doesn’t see it as a crime.” Yunus Ali, Hussain’s brother
The excuse that it’s about the “culture” is unacceptable. Muslims have a “tradition” of these types of behaviors and they are NOT innocent. These kinds of acts have occurred time and time again in Europe, and the excuse is always the same “we don’t see it as a crime.”
Schumer and Gillibrand should not have intervened after the US Embassy denied their visas in the first place. The fact remains that the visas would not have been issued without their intervention.
