The Department of Homeland Security is not allowing an evacuation flight of 117 Americans and Afghan allies to return to the United States, according to Project Dynamo.
Project Dynamo founder Bryan Stern told Reuters that 117 people, including 59 children are waiting at an Abu Dhabi airport to travel to the U.S. “They will not allow a charter on an international flight into a U.S. port of entry,” Stern said.
The 117 travelers at the United Arab Emirates capital include 28 American citizens, 83 green card holders and six holding Special Immigration Visas, according to the report.
“Right now we have 59 children sleeping on airport chairs and cold airport floors – not the warm bed with a hot meal that we’d arranged for all of them stateside – because the US Government denied our flight clearance into ALL US ports of entry. All of them. For a plane load of Americans,” the organization posted on Twitter Tuesday night.
“They escaped the regime they were running from only to have the government they were running HOME TO, turn them away. This cannot be what America does to Americans. Bring Dynamo 01 home. Now. Today,” the post added.
According to a CNN report, “A State Department official said they ‘are not going to detail our involvement with any specific groups at this time.’
“The evacuation effort has been a monumental task and the U.S. government understands the need to coordinate across agencies, as we have done, but we also appreciate the desire of NGOs and private citizens to assist and have identified a greater need for coordination there,” the official said.
What’s going on? First, Biden left Americans behind to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Now a group of Americans has pulled off the unlikely challenge of evacuating some Americans out on its own.
The new problem? Now they have to fight their own country to bring Americans back to America. This sick, twisted plot sounds like something out of a horror film, but it’s the reality we are living under with the Biden Regime in power.
Any other president would gladly receive Americans back and probably even try to take the credit for it. The Biden administration doesn’t even want to let the group of Americans back in.
While Americans are stuck in a Middle Eastern airport, your tax dollars are already paying for more than 30,000 Afghan refugees living on military bases across the U.S. Instead of investing in the rescue of Americans, we’re feeding those from the country we left.
The whole backwards system makes no sense. Yes, the Biden administration wants the Afghanistan problem to go away, but it’s only going to get worse as they attempt to hide it and the information finds its way into the public spotlight.
Of course, the other option would be to admit failure, something Biden simply can’t do. For him, leaving Afghanistan was a success. In reality, it was a shame. Many have called it the worst foreign policy disaster since Jimmy Carter’s Iran hostage crisis.
We have Americans in need. What we need to do is to bring them home.
