Report: Hundreds of Unprocessed Afghan Evacuees Leaving U.S. Military Bases and Fanning Out Across the Country

Report: Hundreds of Unprocessed Afghan Evacuees Leaving U.S. Military Bases and Fanning Out Across the Country

Reuters: “The number of ‘independent departures,’ which top 700 and could be higher, has not been previously reported.”

Reuters is reporting that so far over 700 Afghan evacuees have walked off U.S. military bases for parts unknown. They have not yet been processed and are walking away from cushy benefits and aid.

Reuters reports (archive link):

Something unexpected is happening at U.S. military bases hosting Afghan evacuees: Many hundreds of them are simply leaving before receiving U.S. resettlement services, two sources familiar with the data told Reuters.

The number of “independent departures,” which top 700 and could be higher, has not been previously reported. But the phenomenon is raising alarms among immigration advocates concerned about the risks to Afghans who give up on what is now an open-ended, complex and completely voluntary resettlement process.

In the speed and chaos of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in August following 20 years of war, many evacuees were brought into the United States under a temporary status of “humanitarian parole.” Once transferred to U.S. military bases, refugee resettlement groups and U.S. officials have been trying to connect people with services for a smooth transition to the United States.

This is an astounding fact and a clear national security threat since it seems that the U.S. has no idea who these people are or where they are going. Or why.

As Jazz Shaw notes over at Hot Air, they have every incentive to stay and be processed and handed a job, housing, medical care, cash, and a host of other taxpayer-funded goodies the Biden admin is lavishing on them at our expense.

Also, while it doesn’t constitute definitive proof of anything, who just walks away from a secure place to stay with a roof over their head, free meals, and the promise of incoming cash assistance and other resources? Particularly considering the chaotic circumstances surrounding their departure from Afghanistan and the lack of time to make any arrangements in many cases, doesn’t that seem rather odd?

According to one document that’s being given to all of the evacuees, once they leave the base they can not return. They will also not be eligible for help with their immigration paperwork, cash payments, and the other benefits being funded via the continuing resolution passed on Thursday night. That sounds like a lot to give up unless you’re really motivated to get away from the base and the federal officials there.

One thing is crystal clear: our immigration system is broken.

Reuters continues:

Immigration experts say Afghans who leave the bases are not breaking U.S. laws and military officials have no legal authority to hold law-abiding Afghans against their will at any of the eight locations hosting 53,000 Afghans who fled the Taliban on U.S. evacuation flights.

The scale of the independent departures vary from base to base, according to the sources – more than 300 alone at Fort Bliss in Texas – a figure that is likely to alarm both advocates and critics of the massive U.S. resettlement operation.

Fort Bliss, you may recall, was the site a gang sexual assault against a female soldier just last weekend.

No doubt all part of President Dunning-Kruger’s ingenious no-plan plan. What could go wrong?

Wray probably isn’t losing any sleep over it. Or anyone at DHS. Or Milley.

It’s not like the Taliban are ‘domestic terrorists’. Or Jan 6 ‘insurrectionists’. Or raging white supremacist Trump supporters. Or anything else that serious.

    This is all part of the plan. You cannot hold them on the military bases (for whatever insane reason) so you instruct military personnel to turn their backs and allow the taliban terrorists migrants to slip away into the United States. That will give the Biden regime plausible deniability for any crimes/terrorist actions that might occur.

      I think the terrorists come from the side of our “allies”, the Northern Alliance. I keep asking for examples of Taliban terrorism (other than trying to take / take back Afghanistan) and keep not hearing of any.

        Why “other than”? Isn’t that enough? They’ve imposed their terrorism on a whole country. And they used plenty of bombs against us and against the Afghans to do it. Not to mention their still-ongoing alliance with Al Qaeda and now also IS.

Who needs “cushy benefits and aid” from the federal government when you’re now in the United States and can apply for and receive “cushy benefits and aid” in any state with no federal government involvement. whatsoever.

Gee what could possibly go wrong?? sarc

Who is meeting them on the outside and taking care of them?

    Any local mosque.

      Probably some of the same crowd that caused the muslim infestation of Minnesota and cities like Dearborn. Lutheran Charities, Catholic Relief, and others in on Uncle Sugar’s funding for settling “refugees”.

      And, it should be remembered that it was CONSERVATIVES, and Christian pressure groups that pushed for being the ones to help setttle “refugees”, and so it came to pass that they do.

      I wonder if the same groups would be so eager and ready to help white refugees from Rhodesia Zimbabwe and South Africa?

        Agree, “mainstream conservatives” can be and are led around like sheep. Dems know how to get things done. Is it terrorism? I don’t know, but they don’t get in much if any trouble, and it works.

VERY SAD DAY

Every 9/11 family member AND every gold-star family who lost someone there and everyone wounded there AND every patriotic American – regardless of party – is heartbroken by what has transpired in the last 45 days. They know the truth. And they will never forget the debacle these so-called leaders created. Bin Laden, however, is somewhere laughing from the grave.

This will be a recruiting bonanza Al Qaeda. You can be sure they’ve already inserted people here – coming in from the non-border with Mexico.

Biden, Milley, Austin – must resign or be fired or impeached.

    Biden, Milley, Austin – must resign or be fired or impeached.

    They need far more than that, and done in public.

Out into the lands to spread the word of Mo, and start taking names of the non-believers

Don’t miss the big picture: this is germ warfare against us.

You’ll see.

The near absolute incompetence if Biden and his Bimbo in Waiting is breathtaking. They have done nothing well, and mostly terrible, if the welfare of the United States is an objective.

    alaskabob in reply to Romey. | October 2, 2021 at 7:32 pm

    They don’t care… doing nothing is done well and welfare of their fellow citizens is non-existent. Some many omelets, so little time.

    randian in reply to Romey. | October 3, 2021 at 2:56 am

    Incompetence? No, this is design. If these are terrorists, which their behavior strongly suggests, and they do launch an attack, it’s an opportunity for more gun control and more crackdowns.

If there is a God, they have a plan to converge on Washington and show Nancy Pelosi what “insurrection” really looks like.

Gotta say this doesn’t bother me a bit. That’s fewer immigrants who will receive benefits that a lot of Americans really need instead.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to artichoke. | October 2, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    They will still receive benefits, even worse is that they could be spies planning on creating a terrorist network in America.

“Something unexpected…”

Because everyone knows military bases are wide open travel zones for any one to walk on, off, or around without any security alerts.

‘Unexpected’ is only that if you’re stupid – or promoting this planned invasion.

F**k Joe Biden!

If they’re willing to just wander off with no aid and no plan for making a living one can only assume they are up to no good.

    Oh no! They will make something of themselves. According to anonymous sources some have already enrolled in pilot training.
