California School Official Says Thousands of Students and Children Are Trapped in Afghanistan – Their Stories Will Start to Unfold in Coming Days

There are still dozens of California children trapped in Afghanistan after Joe Biden’s hasty exit from the country.

David Miyashiro, the superintendent of Cajon Valley Union School District in San Diego County, says the actual number may be in the thousands. And “it will start to unfold” in the coming days and weeks.

This is a catastrophe created entirely by Joe Biden and his woke generals.
To top it off, Biden armed the Taliban terrorists with nearly $85 billion in arms before leaving the country.

The Sacramento Bee reported:

The numbers of those known to be trapped are likely to grow, said David Miyashiro, the superintendent of Cajon Valley Union School District in San Diego County. He, along with a local congressman and a tactical team on the ground in Kabul, helped coordinate the extraction of nearly two-dozen students last month.

It was among the first high-profile cases of students stranded in Afghanistan.

“There are thousands of students and children there in the same predicament that will start to unfold, I think, in the coming days and weeks,”
Miyashiro told The Sacramento Bee in an interview Wednesday night. “Our story was first because we knew them. We knew they were there and raised attention to it.

“But now that there’s no travel out of Afghanistan, I think that Afghanistan families will start to show up as missing in school districts in California, in Virginia … and in other pockets across the southern United States where there are large Afghanistan families located.”

Sacramento resident Huma, her husband, and her three Ethel I. Baker Elementary students are among those still in Kabul. Baker Elementary Principal Nate McGill connected The Sacramento Bee with the family this week. They went to the airport multiple times in hopes of getting on a flight home to Sacramento, where they have lived for four years, but to no avail.

Speaking to the Bee this week, Huma said shots were fired by both the Taliban and U.S. forces. Huma said she was shot at. She said families were tear gassed as the U.S. forces tried dispersing the crowds, as many people crouched over to cover their children.

“Can you imagine we spent seven days in this crowd area firing?” Huma wrote in text messages.
