American citizens with relatives in Gaza are facing significant challenges as they attempt to evacuate their family members due to the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis.

Despite pledges from the Biden administration to assist in the evacuation of relatives, the process has been slow, confusing, and unpredictable.

Many individuals worry about the safety and well-being of their family members in Gaza, with some resorting to desperate measures, such as bribing officials, due to the lack of official guidance and support. (Trending: Dr. Fauci Says the Unthinkable About Going To Church)

The State Department has acknowledged difficulties in assisting eligible individuals to leave Gaza and has emphasized its commitment to the safety and security of all U.S. citizens and their families.

Meanwhile, humanitarian organizations are expressing concern about the worsening conditions in Gaza and the insufficient flow of aid into the region.

“Whatever the United States is doing, it’s not helping Americans leave,” said Susan Abdelsalaam.

“I’m sad that I’m not being helped by people I’ve voted for,” said Illinois resident Moh Ghraiz.

“It’s unfair not to help these people and to help other people around the world, Ukrainians and Israelis and whoever else,” Ghraiz added.

“I’m a good citizen. … I expect my Congress, my government to help me to help my family. These are the times when I really need the help.”

“The Department of State has no higher priority than the safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas. We continue to work in partnership with Egypt and Israel towards safe passage out of Gaza for U.S. citizens, LPRs [legal permanent residents], and their immediate family members. So far, we have assisted almost 1,300 U.S. citizens, LPRs, and family members to depart Gaza through the Rafah crossing into Egypt,” a State Department spokesperson said.

“We are aware that this is a difficult situation for U.S. citizens, LPRs, and their families who are seeking to depart Gaza, and we are doing what we can to assist. There is no second-class U.S. citizen ― an American is an American.”

“We have worked with all partners to significantly increase …the flow of aid. Both Israel and Egypt have expanded inspection and logistics capacity for aid delivery, in addition to the U.N.,” the spokesperson wrote.

“We also want to get to a point where more commercial goods are able to enter Gaza. We have been working on these very complex issues tirelessly and continue to do so.”

“Getting the logistics right can help alleviate human suffering, and I don’t think the United States has been effective on either the policy or the logistics and the operations of aid delivery,” said Dave Harden.

“We’re living in the greatest country in the world ― I’m sure there’s something they can do,” said Heiam Alsawalhi of Massachusetts.

Despite efforts to increase aid delivery, experts and former officials believe that the United States has not been effective in addressing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
