Schumer pulled strings to get athlete past Trump’s travel ban;
guy gets charged sexually abusing a child
March 4, 2017
The New York senator, and Senate minority leader, pulled strings to obtain a visa for a snowshoe racer from India to gain entry to America for a competition only to have that same man apprehended on charges of child sex abuse.
Tanveer Hussain, who is from the heavily Muslim region of Kashmir, according to the Washington Post, was initially denied a visa in the days after President Donald Trump’s travel ban, but after Schumer and the mayor of Saranac Lake in New York intervened, he was granted a visa.
Hussain, and team manager Abid Khan, were given a hero’s welcome by the town when they arrived for competition on Feb. 23 because of the ordeal they had to go through to get into the nation. They were given free lodging and congratulations, according to the Post.
But that changed when Hussain was apprehended and charged with felony sexual abuse and child welfare endangerment on Wednesday, according to police.
The incident happened when Hussain allegedly assaulted a 12-year-old who was in the pool of the hotel he was staying at when the two of them were alone. The parents reported the incident to police.
“There was a moment when the two were alone, and that’s when the incident occurred,” Saranac Lake Village Police Chief Charles A. Potthast Jr. said, adding that there was a “passionate kiss” and inappropriate touching.
“It’s an unfortunate situation, both for the community there in the U.S. who supported us and the federation,” Muddasir Mir, president of the SnowShoe Federation of India, said in a statement. “We have full faith in the American law, and as there is a court proceeding going on, that is going to be my only comment.”
Hussain’s brother said where the family is from showing that kind of “affection” to children is not uncommon, highlighting another reason extreme vetting is appropriate when cultures clash.
“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 said.
What’s more is that, according to Mir, the only reason Husain entered the United States was because of the “personal efforts” of Sen. Schumer and fellow Democrat New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
Sen. Schumer even celebrated Hussain’s arrival as a “rock star” in a statement published on Facebook.
A spokesperson for Sen. Schumer said he helped with the visas at the request of Saranac Lake and said the charges were “extremely troubling.”
Social media lambasted the senator for his role.
Muslim who claimed visa denied by Trump ban,
who Schumer got into US, arrested for sexual assault of 12-year-old girl

India was not among the seven countries named in Trump’s immigration ban, so Tanveer Hussain is lying to begin with. In any case, his arrest demonstrates the risks involved in the Democrats Let-Them-All-In-and-Anyone-Who-Demurs-Is-A-Racist-Islamophobe approach.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30).
Hussain’s brother, Yunus Ali, said the family has not been able to speak to Hussain since his arrest.
“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,” he said.
Hussain and Khan claimed they were indirect victims of the U.S. travel ban when their first attempt to procure visas was turned down in late January, the first business day after Trump’s travel ban was put in place. Khan told the BBC that an employee at the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi told them they were being rejected because of “ current policy.”…
In the article, a point was attempted to be made that it was simply a custom of India to hug and kiss unknown people especially young girls.
This Indian Customs facts article puts that as a lie. (note this is a general comment for ALL of India)
“Indians generally don’t shake hands with or even touch members of opposite sex. They use the namaste greeting. In Bombay you can young people that greet each at nightclubs with kisses on the cheek and even scandalous kisses on the lips. But many Indians find such behavior to be shocking. As a rule Indians are not that big on touching one another, especially people they don’t know well.”
“Public displays of affection are frowned upon. Men and women rarely show affection in public. It has traditionally been considered respectful for men and women to maintain a distance of one meter from one another.”
Where is the accuracy in MSM reporting on THIS?
I am not jumping to conclusions here as final information has not been released on the alledged incident as far as I know. However, this simply points up another low score of Democrat “stupid” on the “idiocy meter.” Frankly Trump’s ban did not go far enough.
Time for Schumer to retire!
