Biden Admin Blocking Evacuation Flight Carrying Americans from Afghanistan
The travellers include 59 children and 16 under three years old
Project Dynamo founder Bryan Stern has claimed the Department of Homeland Security is blocking an evacuation flight carrying 117 Americans and Afghan allies.
As per Reuters, Stern claimed 117 people, including 59 children, are stuck at Abu Dhabi airport.
"They will not allow a charter on an international flight into a U.S. port of entry," Stern said.
The report said that the travelers include 28 American citizens, 83 green card holders, and six holding Special Immigration Visas.
The travelers include 59 children and 16 under three years old.
The organization posted on Twitter:
"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 U.S. Government denied our flight clearance into ALL US ports of entry. All of them. For a planeload of Americans."
"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."
Stern's organization was praising the State Department in the news release published Tuesday:
"We would like to thank the U.S. State Department and the United Arab Emirates' Ministry of Foreign Affairs for their cooperation in challenging circumstances to secure the safe return of these U.S. citizens, U.S. Legal Permanent Residents, and Afghan allies," the news release stated.
"We would also like to acknowledge the Taliban for facilitating the departure of the aircraft by allowing those who want to depart Afghanistan to do so peacefully," it added.
It posted a similar message on Facebook:
Reuters reported the administration official was unfamiliar with the specific situation.
But he said the usual practice is for the U.S. government to verify the passenger manifest of charter planes before allowing them to land.
CNN reported:"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.
