“The United States has long been a beacon of hope for newcomers from around the world. For generations, millions of Americans who started out as refugees have made incredible contributions to our country. The same will be true for this generation. But first, they need our help.”
The U.S. has evacuated thousands of Afghans who will soon enter the country. Many of these allies and their families aided American diplomatic, military, or civic agencies as interpreters, translators, professionals, or other support personnel.
Some are US citizens born or living in Afghanistan, some are seeking Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) status or designation as refugees fleeing persecution, and others qualify for “humanitarian parolee” status, which has been done in other military evacuations.
No matter which legal route an Afghan family follows to get to the United States, all will benefit from welcome and support while they resettle and start new lives here in the United States.
