Emma is not as powerful as Xavier. She was never shown to mentally control anyone so im gonna assume she cant, well not to the degree and ease that Charles does it. Shaw even said this telepath is powerful when he found out that the russian officer and been mind controlled. Even if she did control someone into freeing her she obviously couldn't get far enough with a ton of agents there that she couldn't control. I know in the comics when Scott automatically assumed she could do this telepathic feat on a lot of people she told him that she wasn't Xavier.
