US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said today that the US has “now brought over 10,000 Americans back home from places where they were stranded through no fault of their own.”
“There’s still a lot of work to do. We’ve got a lot of people who are trying to get back this way, and with travel shut down in many of these countries without any notice or little notice, there’s still a major undertaking. But the team has martialed the resources. It’s an airlift back home like we’ve not seen in an awfully long time, and I’m really proud of the way our team has responded,” Pompeo told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show.On Wednesday, the head of the repatriation task force at the State Department said they were tracking 50,000 Americans who may seek help in returning to the US.
