The Biden administration plans on resettling around 95,000 afghans into the United States.
They are being sent to military bases across the United States.
Now, at least hundreds of them are leaving US military bases before resettlement.

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.
According to one U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official that Reuters spoke to, this could lead to problems down the line regarding the immigration status of these Afghans.
Trump has issued warnings about the vetting of the Afghans allowed into the United States.
