Email Congress Now: Equip Communities to Welcome Afghan

More than 70,000 Afghans were evacuated to the United States beginning in the summer of 2021. These individuals included translators who helped U.S. troops, women rights activists, religious minorities, and others who were fleeing violence and persecution and were resettled in communities across the United States. Most of the Afghans who were evacuated were brought into the United States in a temporary immigration status as “parolees.” However, parole is only a temporary protection, and these individuals need access to permanent legal status to be able to rebuild their lives in the United States. On August 9, 2022, a bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives introduced the Afghan Adjustment Act in both chambers of the U.S. Congress to remedy this situation, and we invite you to ask your Members of Congress to support this vital legislation.
