U.S. bound flights for Afghan evacuees have been paused due to a measles outbreak. The Biden administration made the announcement on Monday, which could stall evacuee relocation for up to a week.
The press have gotten a first look at a military base where the Biden administration has housed evacuees who were airlifted out of Afghanistan. On Friday, military officials gave a tour to several reporters of the Fort Bliss Army Base in El Paso, Texas, which has been processing and housing Afghan evacuees.
Critics have bashed the Biden administration for its latest mistake as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced several Afghan evacuees tested positive for a deadly disease inside the U.S. On Friday, Psaki confirmed an outbreak of measles cases among Afghan escapees has temporarily halted new flights from bringing even more people into the U.S.
