"Salman was born in Afghanistan but was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area."
What this actually means is that despite living physically in America, she was intellectually, spiritually and religiously living just as her tribal, Afghani countrymen. It mattered not that she grew up in San Francisco.
To paraphrase the song: Her heart, she left her heart, in Afghanistan.
It is therefore not just legitimate, but imperative to ask potential immigrants and refugees such as these if in fact they are actually leaving Afghanistan behind them. We in the West do not need the heart and soul of Afghanistan being nurtured in our communities. Let them deal with their own barbarism there.
