Biden Admin Charging $2,000 Or More To Evacuate US Citizens From Afghanistan: Report

A new report alleges that the Joe Biden administration is actually charging American citizens to be evacuated from Afghanistan and the nation has fallen into the hands of the Taliban.­

“Even though U.S. officials tell NatSec Daily and others that evacuation flights from Kabul will be free, people trying to catch a plane in the Afghan capital say differently. One person said State Department staff were seeking large payments — up to $2,000 — from American passengers and even more from non-U.S. citizens,” Politico said in a report on Thursday.

When the news organization reached out to a State Department spokesperson the report was not denied.

“U.S. law requires that evacuation assistance to private U.S. citizens or third-country nationals be provided ‘on a reimbursable basis to the maximum extent practicable.’ The situation is extremely fluid, and we are working to overcome obstacles as they arise,” they said.
