24 Sacramento public school children have been left stranded in Afghanistan, unable to exit the country now that America has fully withdrawn:
SACRAMENTO BEE – At least 24 Sacramento-area students are confirmed to be stranded in Afghanistan as turmoil continues in Kabul, according to school officials.
San Juan Unified school district staff said 24 students, down from from the initial estimate of 150 students, had not returned to campuses since the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
After reading The Sacramento Bee’s story about two students stranded overseas, staffers at Sacramento Congressman Ami Bera’s office contacted San Juan Unified and are working with the district to bring students back safely.
“Our office has been in close contact with the San Juan Unified School District, and have urgently flagged the students’ information with the State Department and Department of Defense. We have not received an update from the State Department or the DOD,” read a statement from Bera’s communications director Travis Horne.
It’s unclear when more Sacramento-area residents will board flights to return from Kabul. It’s been more than two weeks since Taliban leaders took control of country’s capital.
We are unsure why these students were in Afghanistan at this time but it’s completely unthinkable that a U.S. President would abandon children in a country that has been overrun by terrorists who will now face death by their hands.
Because to Joe Biden, they are now stranded in the country with no way out. What a nightmare, and it’s all because Joe Biden is a coward. Despite having the world’s largest and most powerful military, he allowed the Taliban to coerce him into submission. It’s revolting.
