And at least one report says that the State Department was intending to charge all Americans $2,000 to fly them home but apparently, they changed their mind.

2) Dismantling Trump’s policies is more important than national security. We now know the Biden Administration disbanded a State Department unit called the “Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau” which was created especially to draw up plans regarding the evacuation of Americans from situations like the one we have now.
