Republican Congressman Cory Mills (R-FL) is taking an active approach, unlike Joe Biden, to rescue stranded Americans abroad. On Wednesday, Mills effectively evacuated 77 Americans who were abandoned in Israel, struggling to secure flights back to the U.S.

Mills, who is a former member of the 82nd Airborne Division in the United States Army, revealed that he worked with the U.S. embassy in Jordan to execute this operation.

Many of the individuals he assisted had previously encountered difficulties while seeking aid from the U.S. State Department, according to his statements to Fox News Digital.

Mills facilitated the safe passage of these stranded Americans across the Jordanian border, ensuring they could arrange flights for their return to the United States.

From Fox News:

Rep. Cory Mills, R-Fla., successfully evacuated 32 Americans Wednesday who were stranded in Israel unable to find flights home, and he is planning to conduct a second mission in the coming days. 

The Florida Republican told Fox News Digital he arranged, with help from the U.S. embassy in Jordan, for the safe passage of 32 Americans stranded in Tel Aviv after multiple airlines canceled flights, transporting them across the Jordanian border. 

Mills said all the rescued Americans were able to arrange flights from Jordan to their homes in the United States.

“You know, for me, there’s a statesman and there’s a politician. One acts and the other one talks, and I just couldn’t sit there knowing Americans were losing their lives,” Mills told Fox News Digital.

“And, look, I’m not making a massive dent in things. There’s thousands of people that are still trapped there. I got 32 people out today, and I hope to get a lot more tomorrow,” he said. 

Mills joined Laura Ingraham and shared, “We were getting a ton of requests from Americans who were stranded.”

“Unfortunately, once again, The State Department is playing everything on a hope and a prayer and no real strategy.”

“I put all of this, 100%, on the Biden Administration. Biden released $6 billion, it’s still fungible and very easily moveable income that they have.”

“We are literally funding the very terrorism that’s hitting our allies and endangering Americans. As well as for leaving billions of dollars in Afghanistan that’s now finding its way into these war zones to be utilized against Americans.”

“I can tell you right now, as an elected official, I’m not going to stand for it. And if I have to come over here and do Joe Biden’s Job then so be it.”


Meanwhile, Democrat Senator Cory Booker, who was in Israel when the war began, made sure to get himself out safely, disregarding his fellow Americans who were left behind.
