I am writing to express my support for the Afghan Adjustment Act and ask that you support the bill as quickly as possible.

Over 70,000 Afghans were evacuated to the United States 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 typically granted for one or two years as “parolees.” 

Given the temporary nature of this relief, tens of thousands of the evacuated Afghan men, women, and children resettled in the U.S. will need to navigate complex legal issues to find more lasting protection in the U.S. We are advocating for the Afghan Adjustment Act so Afghans who were evacuated will be able to adjust status in the United States and be able to quickly integrate. The United States has historically done this for other populations including Cubans, Southeast Asians and Iraqis.

 Please support the Afghan Adjustment Act as soon as possible! Every day is important.
