REVEALED: Afghan refugees are 'walking out' of US military bases before they are resettled after Republicans raised questions about whether evacuees are being properly vetted

More than 700 Afghan refugees currently in the United States have left the military bases they've been evacuated to without intent to return, it was revealed Friday.

The number of 'independent departures,' or refugees leaving to start a new life, is more than 300 at Fort Bliss, Texas alone, sources familiar with the data told Reuters.

Roughly 53,000 Afghans were brought to eight different bases across the US after being rescued from Kabul.
