The Biden administration was apparently charging American citizens thousands for evacuation flights from Afghanistan.
The Biden administration has been charging U.S. citizens $2,000 for evacuation flights out of Afghanistan, according to a recent report.
In addition, the report said that non-U.S. citizens were charged even more than $2,000.
“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,” Politico 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.”
Politico claims that it asked the State Department over the costly flights, and the department didn’t deny that it was happening. A spokesperson described the law surrounding the situation, which Politico rephrased as: “In other words, the Biden administration may request payments for evacuation flights.”
The Biden admin said nearly 4 hours ago it had no intention of seeking reimbursement from people fleeing Afghanistan.

Not only has President Biden caused the chaos in Afghanistan and the remaining fallout, but apparently his administration has decided not to help Americans leave the country without paying an absurd price for flights.
Biden and his administration have reached new lows with their recent failures. We can’t allow them or other Democrats to threaten the safety and prosperity of our great country.
