Almost two dozen students from the San Diego County city of El Cajon stay caught in Afghanistan Thursday in the midst of the confusion which has followed the U.S. military’s exit from the nation and the Taliban taking control.
As per media, 23 students in the Cajon Valley Union School District and their folks traveled to Afghanistan to visit more distant family over summer break.
They have been not able to get to the Kabul air terminal to fly home, a school district representative told news. The 23 students are from six families.
“A few of our families over summer break freely chose to return home to Afghanistan and see their more distant family. A great deal of the families, their nuclear families, are here, however the entirety of their grandparents and everyone are as yet in Afghanistan,” Michael Serban, Cajon Valley Union School District’s overseer of Family and Children Engagement, told media.
The students and their folks are not U.S. residents, as per the media. They dwell here on special visas for U.S. military assistance and are viewed as partners by the Department of Defense.
President Joe Biden has given an Aug. 31 cutoff time to evacuate all Americans from Afghanistan.
