A shocking report out today revealed that the Americans have an even larger problem than originally thought. According to newly surfaced information, a California school district is scrambling to help at least 23 of its students escape Afghanistan before the scheduled red line date at the end of the month.
The Los Angeles Times (paywall notice) reports that 23 students from the Cajon Valley School District are struggling to find their way to home after an apparent summer trip to the country gone horribly wrong. It is understood that the students took an unsanctioned trip to the country to visit family and are now stuck under Taliban rule. It is further unclear if the students would be allowed out of the country as it appears they are or are in some way related to Afghans — who are now restricted from leaving per the Taliban.
The families involved had return tickets although the Taliban has already ordered all Afghans to stay put and that the would not allow regional locals to leave anymore. The school district noted in a release that they have contacted state and federal officials but it is unclear what could be done.
