The United States has stepped up efforts to rescue Afghan
As the Taliban offensive continues, the United States has stepped up efforts to rescue Afghan allies.
U.S. As the withdrawal period approaches,
the joint refugee operation will cut off operations in Afghanistan,
which are supporting the US military.
The Biden administration will begin deporting thousands of Afghans working for the US government later this month,
before US military operations in Afghanistan begin on December 31.
and occupy areas controlled by the Taliban in Afghanistan and coalition forces,
current and former Afghan translators,
spokespersons and others working with the U.S.
government in Afghanistan are in grave danger.
A Mission and Special Purpose report earlier this month said:
As the Taliban approaches its final victory,
an estimated 1,000,000 Afghans and their families working in the United States are at risk of death.”
Because of this risk, according to a senior government official,
Historical assistance to our partners in the US and Afghanistan (special immigrant visas)
and interested and eligible Afghan citizens and their families are flying.
In preparation,Ali Refugee Action will be part of the week in July.
The news came after a series of bipartisan inquiries by a number of legislators,
including Senator Angus King I-ME,
who said last month that he wanted to “burn the White House’s hair.
The Taliban’s rapid invasion of Afghanistan will raise concerns.
This is not just a moral issue, it is a national security issue,
King told reporters during a telephone briefing, according to a military website.
According to NBC News,
only 2,500 people are currently allowed to travel directly to the United States under the SIV program.
about 10,000 people whose background visas have not been verified
could be deported to a third country or to a U.S. military base abroad.
Details are not yet clear, but according to reports,
the Guam area of the United States is being considered as a transportation point.
Congress hopes to do more for America’s Afghan allies.
Congress welcomed the Biden administration’s statement
but lawmakers are still pushing the White House to protect American allies in Afghanistan
and facilitate access to the United States.
Such a law, the hope of a proposed Afghan SIV law,
would defer the need for an SIV medical examination until the applicant arrives in the United States
and would remove a major hurdle for many Afghans.
Given the current situation, limited visits to clinics in Afghanistan where trials can take place can also create a problem.
According to Jason Crow D-CO, a former U.S.
Army Ranger reporter who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan and is an associate of Bill,
Kabul currently has only one facility that covers the entire country. From a foreign province. Is.
In addition to the Afghan SIV Hope Act, St.
Petersburg (D-VT) also called on Congress to increase the number of SIVs to 46 46,500,
There are currently many SIV program licenses, according to the State Council.
Special immigrant visas are for Iraqis working in the United States,
especially Iraqi and Afghan translators and interpreters serving in the U.S. military.
Last week, Leahy suggested raising the cap.
This package will further change the SIV program.
According to Roll Call’s Caroline Simon,
Leah’s plan reduces the requirement for qualified employment from two years to one year
and postpones the necessary medical examinations until the applicant immigrates to the U.S.
Changes in the appeal process for denial and granting SIV status.
For other changes and family members of the slain applicant.
It will include 100 million emergency aid to counter the expected surge in Afghan refugees
as the Taliban seek to return to their territory in Afghanistan.
Many of these provisions include the Tateshi Afghan Allied Forces Protection Act, a bilateral law drafted by Kim, Raya and 15 other senators.
A version of the bill was also endorsed by Parliament.
However, the Lehi project lacks general support for the Afghan SIV scheme.
Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) is a high-ranking member of the Senate Special Committee against Lehi,
but instead proposes a very tight supplementary scheme that is only paid for.
The Afghanistan SIV program does not include capital security and funding.
We are committed to risking our lives to support and protect our troops,
and Afghans in our country, Raya said in a Safety Insert statement.
As a country, our words are our relationship, and we agree with all Republicans and Democrats.
Therefore, this bond will not break in our eyes.
If you are not careful right now, when?
As Lyell’s statement shows, time is running out for Afghans and the United States
and the United States for their allies – to find effective solutions. In a speech in July, Biden announced U.S.
About two weeks before the Sept. 11 deadline, most U.S. troops
more than 90% of all troops – have already left the country, according to U.S. Central Command.
Earlier this month, the United States withdrew from Bagram Air Force Base,
the country’s largest U.S. air force base.
Bagram has long been the center of American operations in,
Afghanistan, and as a gateway to the battlefield
and a gateway to the war that has been cut off by the change of presidential
administration has an additional symbolic meaning.
Last week, Army Admiral Austin Scott Miller officially resigned as the country’s supreme commander,
marking the effective end of the US presence in Afghanistan.
According to the Washington Post, the country still has only 10,000 euros,
mainly for security at the US embassy in Kabul and Afghanistan’s international airport.
Our job now is not just to forget, Miller said before leaving for Kabul on Monday.
It’s important for the families of those killed in this conflict to know that someone remembers,
someone cares, and we can talk about that in the future.
