After a week of congressional hearings with Secretary of State Antony Blinken, President Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan looks worse than ever. Sara Carter broke down the highlights from Blinken’s statements on the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show.
First, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) wanted to know how many Americans were left behind. “How many of them approximately, you say we don’t know the exact number. But how many legal permanent residents are we convinced are still in Afghanistan?” Romney asked.
“We don’t we don’t have an exact number,” Blinken replied.
“A round number,” the Utah senator pushed.
“But it’s in the 1000’s,” Blinken admitted. This in itself was a revelation because the White House previously denied anyone was stranded. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki flat out rejected the notion during a press conference.
“First of all, I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded,” Psaki said at the time. “They are not.”
As a result of Blinken’s statement on abandoned Americans, Carter blasted the Biden administration.
“I was thinking to myself, this administration doesn’t even care about American citizens. They’d probably be grateful if I went into Panjshir. They would probably be happy if I disappeared somewhere in Panjshir,” Carter said. “But I for sure know that this government, my government would do nothing for me. They abandoned Americans, they abandoned green card holders. They abandoned people with visas.”
Then on Monday, veteran Jean Marie Thrower verified Blinken’s estimate on America’s Newsroom. She personally stayed behind the U.S. military’s August 31st deadline as a volunteer. Therefore she saw first hand that there are about 1,000 Americans still in Afghanistan.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
