The Fort Bliss Army post is one of the eight U.S. military installations hosting refugees from Afghanistan as part of Operation Allies Refuge.
Democrat Escobar's visit comes one day after southern New Mexico GOP Congresswoman Yvette Herrell toured the Dona Ana Complex and criticized the Biden Administration's vetting process for Afghan refugees.
