Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Over 1,000 US Students and SIV Holders' Children Still Stranded in Afghanistan After Biden Left: Officials”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

GOP Rep. Darrell Issa of California and local school officials celebrated the return of 24 students and 16 parents from the San Diego area who were stranded in Afghanistan when the Taliban took over but noted there are many more who still need to get out.

Fox News reported that based on conversations the Cajon Valley Union School District and Issa’s office have had with their contacts in Afghanistan, “officials and families estimate that more than 1,000 U.S. students and children of Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders are still stuck in the country.”

“There are easily a thousand more students — American born or children of SIVs — still trapped in Afghanistan,” Cajon Valley spokesperson Howard Shen said at a Thursday news conference.

In his own school district, one family with three students remains in Afghanistan of the eight families that they were trying to get out.
