Pence's staff tests positive for coronavirus as Navajo Council and White House plan virus super spreader event for today, Tuesday, Oct. 27
Navajo elderly waiting in the cold today found out that the Navajo chapters only received 20 to 30 applications for hardship assistance. Some chapters received no applications, said Navajo family members as disabled elderly were being turned away.
The Navajo Nation had promised that today was the day for the elderly and disabled to apply for hardship relief of up to $1,500. It was the day for Dine' ages 65 and older, and disabled, to apply. But they were turned away in the cold due to the lack of applications.
While Navajo elderly were being turned away in the cold today -- the Navajo Council announced that a policy team from the White House will meet with the Navajo Council tomorrow, Tuesday. The public is not invited.
