If an American is wrongfully detained abroad, there should be every expectation that an American is coming to bring them home.

Under Joe Biden, sadly, more Americans are being targeted and wrongfully detained than at any time in recent memory. To add insult to injury, our government shows little spine in successfully getting these men and women back home.

Take Paul Whelan and Marc Fogel as examples. When the Biden Administration bent over backward to secure the release of WNBA star Brittney Griner in exchange for the notorious trafficker known as the “Merchant of Death,” Paul Whelan and Marc Fogel were left out of the deal.

Brittney was well-known across the nation’s women’s basketball industry before her wrongful detention, and I am happy to see Brittney Griner back home. The message, however, is crystal clear to the families of the lesser-known wrongfully detained: the Biden Administration will not rescue your loved ones unless you can spur widespread media attention for them. Why must some wrongfully detained Americans abroad rightfully receive our government’s commitment while other Americans do not? Why must there be a quota in Twitter mentions to see your family?

Putting America First is not what Joe Biden does. America First is the commitment to bring every American home.

As the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Accountability, I will push to bring to light the names of each wrongfully detained American left behind. Their families deserve it, and they deserve it. It is time Americans heard their names. It is time Joe Biden heard their names.
