'This is a cause for celebration and the result of almost countless hours of work under very difficult conditions,' Rep. Darrell Issa announced in a statement Wednesday.
'Our team simply would not give up, and today it paid off and we got them home.'
The couple, who are in their 80s, are among the 33 members of his district who he notes have helped escape the country since the Taliban seized control. Their names were withheld to protect Afghan relatives still living in the country.
Further details on their escape have not been shared, in an attempt to keep future evacuees protected. Americans and Afghan refugees have managed to flee on charter flights and overland to neighboring countries.
Issa's office reported that the couple had tried for weeks to get through Taliban checkpoints in Kabul and board a plane home, but were 'harassed and intimidated' by the militant group throughout their attempts.
Their evacuation came after granddaughter Zahul, whose last name was also withheld for security reasons, reached out to Issa's office to report their plight.
His office did not say how the couple was able to escape the country.
Roughly 100 Americans are still believed to be trapped in Afghanistan since the chaotic American withdrawal concluded on August 30, and want to leave, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Congress this week.
'While we have made extraordinary progress, but we’re not stopping until everyone comes home,' Issa, who represents the San Diego area, said in a statement.
He has accused the Biden administration of abandoning Americans, including a number of his constituents in the country.
'I represent two incredibly brave American citizens stranded in Afghanistan,' he tweeted on August 31.
He reported earlier this month that in addition to the elderly couple, he was working to evacuate another family with three children who live in his congressional district in California.
The rush to escape through the Kabul airport turned deadly on August 26, when a suicide bombing outside its gates killed 13 US servicemembers and 169 Afghan civilians.
Issa has disputed the official US figure of about 100 citizens still stranded in Afghanistan, saying he believes the number is closer to 500 and could be as high as 1,000 if family members of U.S. citizens are included in that count.
