Biden to Force US Airlines to Fly Tens of Thousands of Afghan Refugees to America
'Officials are considering alternatives for ramping up the evacuation effort'
Democrat Joe Biden is preparing to force U.S. airline companies to transport tens of thousands of refugees from Afghanistan for the problem he created.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the White House is considering activating the Civil Reserve Air Fleet, or CRAF, to provide five airlines to assist U.S. military efforts to evacuate from bases in the region.
The outlet also noted:
“Officials are considering alternatives for ramping up the evacuation effort, which include expanding the number of bases in the region to reduce overcrowding, officials said, a move that could augment the use of civilian airlines or avert the need for them.”
Military bases in the United States are now being designated to provide housing for the refugees.
The news comes amid the already worsening border crisis, now Biden is moving to import massive amounts of refugees.
The commercial airliners would “help to ferry the thousands of Afghans and others who are stranded at U.S. bases in Qatar, Bahrain, and Germany."
The effort would “relieve the pressure on those bases, which are fast filling up with Afghan evacuees as the U.S. expands efforts to fly them out of the airport in Kabul.”
The U.S. Military’s Transportation Command told airlines they could be forced to create a reserve fleet to help with the efforts.
Capt. John Perkins told the WSJ:
“U.S. Transportation Command issued a warning order to U.S. carriers Friday night on the possible activation of CRAF.”
Biden has received massive backlash for his actions surrounding the pullout from Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, the UK has set up an emergency scheme to take in 25,000 Afghan refugees to deal with the crisis.
On Tuesday night, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that up to 25,000 Afghans would be granted asylum in Britain.
The move is one of the most generous resettlement schemes in UK history.
Americans still trapped:
Neon Nettle reported Biden would be demanding $2000 from every American trapped in Afghanistan to pay for their evacuation flights.
The revelation was reported by Politico:
“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,” the outlet reported.
“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.”
